A Day in the life: 


Awake with the sunrise while the soft sounds of the ocean, and monkeys playing in the surrounding jungle, brighten your morning.  


Snuggle up with a warm drink on one of the many private balconies, or enjoy your locally sourced breakfast in the open air dining hall with friends. Look out across the majestic Pacific and breathe in the fresh, tropical breeze. 


Invigorate your body and mind with morning mobility & yoga practice in the famous Sky Mind Hall, and devour the studio's panoramic views of lush jungle and coastline. Hang around for practical Ayurvedic guidance uncovering the path to bliss through ritual, diet and lifestyle. 


Spend your afternoon melting into a seemingly endless beachfront or walking the Eden-esque grounds of Blue Spirit. Monkeys, sloths, sea turtles and other exotic friends are sure to come out and play. Stick around for a luxurious massage or head to the nearby town. Surf with locals, shop, dine and experience the Pura Vida way of living. 


Wind down with lightness and laughter at a dinner table full of new friends. Drift away into easeful rest with a gentle evening yoga practice. If you're feeling frisky, head to the infinity saltwater pool for a dip; it's open all night for those inclined to bathe in moonlight. 


Adventurous excursions, a latin dance lesson or two (along with a trip to the local salsa club), and a community of smiling faces will keep the rest of your downtime rewarding and satiating. You’ll leave the week feeling lighter, reinvigorated, intentional and whole. 


All sessions are optional for those looking for deeper relaxation on this beautiful reprieve. All sessions will accommodate all levels of practitioners, including beginners and advanced. 


YTT training hours and CEs are available for an additional cost. Reach out to us for more info.

Reviews

Soulkissed 2019 with Bethany, Kasey, and Mary was phenomenal. Both relaxing and energizing, there was uptime, downtime, and any other time you might need. The resort, staff, and facilities were fantastic, and so clean, like how do they keep it so clean? And the food was perfect, just enough variety and consistency for anyone to be happy. The space that was held so that us participants could go inward and bloom, transform, or change was created by B, K, and M, it was joyous to be playful again. A+ Would Recommend, Would Repeat

Soulkissed was absolutely amazing. Bluespirit was a stunning location that immediately upon arrival offered relaxation. The setting couldn't have facilitated a more comprehensive week of resetting. It was evident that Bethany and Kacey had done their work planning, as well. Each day was logically executed and each activity (i.e. platting a tree, the beach clean up, etc.) significant to the whole experience. Bethany's yoga classes were soulful and strong. Sometimes we moved quickly and other times we slowed down for a deeper experience. It was a perfect blend of methodology. This retreat exceeded my expectations immensely, I hope to go back!

I can’t wait to go on this amazing trip again. As a man I wasn’t sure how I would connect with everyone. My worry was quickly put to rest as I connect deeply with everyone on this trip and came out with a better understanding of myself. Bethany knows what she is doing.
