      About this trip


      A week of nutrient dense living to nourish the soul and awaken the senses.

      Food + Movement + Community

      Join Erica Hartnick, Alex Lanau, and Friends at the YOGA FARM for 7 days and nights of good vibes! During this week we will explore:

      -Conscious Cooking through healthy recipes and easy food prep concepts

      -How to gently reduce food waste

      -Daily movement and living yoga

      -Life off-the-grid

      -Acts of forming good habits while discarding non-serving ones 

      -How creating and building community is essential to our evolution

      -The importance of developing a deeper relationship with the Nature that provides us food

      -Listening to our bodies: tending our inner soil and internal waters

      -How less can be more

      Celebrate Flavors, Form, and Friends as we explore these realms as the foundations of wellness. The Yoga Farm is a rustic off-the-grid yoga center and sustainable living project located on Costa Rica’s southernmost Pacific coast. Set amidst beautiful tropical rainforest, overlooking open ocean, and one of the most biologically diverse places in the world, it is an ideal space for those looking to reconnect with mind, body, and nature. Passionate humans, incredible wildlife, delicious food, and magical land. Let’s share our wisdom and grow together!

      Amazing, I miss the Yoga farm so much already! Erica, Silke, Christy, Pat and Levi are all so sweet and helpful, and the Yoga farm is a beautiful place to learn about nature, about yourself and to find community. The tasks for every week are educational and mostly fun, and there’s a lot of free time. The yoga classes were great and I loved the gift shares of people in the community ❤️

      I highly recommend this retreat! It was beautifully planned with a variety of activities that catered to anyone with a love of water and the outdoors. It was balanced with movement, exploration and rest not to mention delicious meals! Each participant was encouraged to savor the experiences at their own pace/level. Yogatrade guided and introduced us to other local guides thus creating a community of like minded individuals supporting each other. Muchas Gracias Erica, Jodi and your friends!

      Gracias Agua was much more than a trip, getaway or vacation. It was a rejuvenating + magical life experience; and, in the words of Mark Twain, “Synergy - the bonus that is achieved when things work together harmoniously.” Our beautiful leaders, Erica + Jodi are the definition of embodied leadership. Each remarkable and creative in their own way as well as compassionate, strong and inspiring. I really appreciate the sacred space they created for us wherever we were… from the yoga deck to pool tides to surf rides and snorkel dives! Erica + Jodi created a one of a kind experience by introducing and surrounding us with the local community, which is something I value greatly. The accommodation at Tiskita is truly special. Immediately upon arriving, I was welcomed by a serene symphony of rhythmic sounds of both the jungle and the Pacific Ocean; natures very own sound bath. I love the open space design of the cabinas as it made me feel so closely connected to nature. The food is divine and nourishing and the staff so gracious. Thank you to Alanna and her family for sharing their home. I am grateful for the amazing women I met and connected with and will forever hold them in my heart. Hopefully we will reconnect at next year’s Gracias Agua retreat, as I certainly plan to return! My deepest gratitude to all the beautiful humans that created and contributed to this most special and extraordinary experience. Much love to all, Karen

      We had the most incredible experience at Gracias Agua! It was a beautiful week of connection, play, and exploring our depths and edges in a safe space. Erica and Jodi considered every detail and went above and beyond to create a magical week. The accommodations and staff at Tiskita were lovely, the food was delicious, and the balance of activities and time for relaxation was perfect. Could not recommend a retreat with Erica and Jodi more and looking forward to the next one!

      Overall, the retreat experience was utterly and completely amazing. The facilitators and attendees were all awesome to be around, and were genuine, kind, compassionate, and caring people. Each facilitator brought something beautiful and unique to the experience, and I couldn't have asked for a better connection with the group of women attending. The accommodations were absolutely lovely, and the yoga deck AND our room were both breathtaking. The retreat centre was in the middle of the jungle, which was lush with plant and animal life, and we saw loads of animal activity daily. The beaches and tide pools that were nearby are absolutely gorgeous day trips. The days were structured and the activities were plentiful, with the option to opt out of anything to get some "me" time in instead. Any minor issues with the accommodation staff/centre/food were taken care of by the retreat facilitators immediately. I would absolutely attend another retreat with any of these magical facilitators, and I highly recommend a specialty massage with Lynn, if ever given the opportunity!
