How can we move from fragmentation into wholeness? It's a question to ask our self, our relationships, and healing humanity. It is neither hopeless nor wishful thinking but requires commitment, presence, and work. Most of all, it practices our capacity to love fully. During our 8 day retreat, we will dive deeply into body intelligence; take in indigenous and ancestral wisdom; and access various energy fields. This will facilitate natural healing, develop your intuition, expand your consciousness, and re-awaken interconnectedness. Join us in this sacred space to nourish your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body.
In the tropical jungles of Montezuma, we warmly welcome you to Anamaya Retreat. Located in Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, it has been named as a "Blue Zone"— one of five areas in the world where people are known to live the longest and healthiest.
Anamaya means 'good health' in Sanskrit and is a premier wellness resort. Culinary delights, warm breezes, and a saltwater infinity pool offer a sanctuary for the senses. This boutique hotel has been designed to blend in with nature, combining simple elegance and comfort. Each room features ensuite bathrooms with hot water shower, A/C, ceiling fans, private deck, hammock, organic linens, and breathtaking Pacific Ocean views. Toucans and monkeys often visit the treetops and greet guests! All-inclusive package rates include tax and are priced in USD.
Please note that this will be a retreat with our own private group and our own yoga shala. There may be other hotel guests on the property sharing the common spaces, ie. swimming pool and dining area.

"I attended Tammy's retreat in Mexico, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made for myself. It truly was a transformative experience. Tammy is so knowledgeable and very gentle in her practice. She offers a variety of practices and activities all of which are essentially invitations to look within yourself. I learned so much about both myself and life on this retreat, and Tammy was the catalyst that I needed. I had little to no yoga experience prior to coming to this retreat, but did not at all feel overwhelmed or lost during our yoga sessions. Tammy is very sensitive and responsive to people's individual needs and limitations, which I very much appreciated."
