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!

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!

Deep Ecology of Wellness was profoundly transformational. The community was incredible and the facilitators truly crafted an experience that was deeply educational and fun. The food was delicious and the location was out of the world. I highly recommended you visit Punta Mona!
