      The trip is an adventure that will feed your soul! Jodi & Erica created an experience that is unique in every way. The location, lodge, activities, etc. provide a beautiful opportunity to explore Costa Rica. The sense of community was special-Jodi & Erica, the lodge staff, the locals and the retreat attendees came together to enjoy the magic of Gracias Agua!

      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
