About this trip

Experience the MAGIC of COSTA RICA. Embark on a week of Relaxation, (Self) Exploration & PURA VIDA!! Your home base during this inward escape will be Mystica Lodge: a paradise of pure beauty, healing energy and a huge amount of prana and love.  Awaken each morning and enjoy Mystica's Yoga Sanctuary in the HEART of the JUNGLE.  Surrounded by the sounds of the River & Wildife, Kaylan will host daily yoga, meditation and sound healing. 

The trip is designed with YOU in mind.  Feel free to spend free time walking the unique grounds of the resort, or relax in one of many hammocks and other gathering areas overlooking the beautiful lake and Arenal volcano.  Anyone seeking more traditional explorations will find just that in one of our daily trips to waterfalls, volcanic hot springs, boat tours, or local chocolate and coffee farms.  

This will be an experience where the meaning is never lost and in more times, in fact: found.

Kaylan Pietrogallo
Growing up a figure skater, Kaylan's love for movement and balance was always her passion. Upon finishing studies in Psychology, she began experiencing anxiety. Acknowledging the connection between mind and breath, yoga helped her tremendously during this time. The decision was made to deepen her practice, receiving her 200 Hr YTT in Costa Rica at Mystic Yoga Academy under Lori Myles-Carullo. Kaylan's wish is to lead others to the same light yoga has provided to her. Her practice is based in HVNY and she represents Roots Yoga.


I'm still dreaming about this wonderful experience at Mystica Resort and Yoga Retreat. It was the perfect combination of beautiful people, (including every single staff member), very clean and comfortable accommodations, and excellent organically grown (on the premises) and delicious meals. The whole experience including the wonderful meditations, yoga sessions, singing bowls session, massage and infrared sauna experiences were a delight to the senses. Kaylan and Lauren, our yoga instructors, went above and beyond in planning this experience and it was more than I ever thought it would be. The schedule allowed for lots of time to process, journal, read, connect with other people and simply enjoy this beautiful facility. The landscaping and colorful signs and the gorgeous sanctuary where we had yoga was surrounded by tropical sounds, comfortable breezes and surprise visits from toucans. The field trip to a farm was excellent, where we tasted so many tropical fruits and learned all about the fauna and how coffee and chocolate are grown and are used. I especially loved our afternoon at the hot springs. We met other interesting people from Australia, which added to the experience. The day trip to Hermosa Beach was a real treat with a gorgeous private beach and restaurant. The only down side of this retreat was leaving! The owners, Francesco, Lori and Barbara were delightful, very talented, kind and interesting people who added another dimension to this experience. I am already dreaming about doing it again! I can't say enough about this place and these people and I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Lauren and Kaylan did a terrific job of planning and executing this experience for all of us. They were helpful with travel planning, and gave excellent advice for packing. There was an excellent balance of yoga time, free time, and extraordinary outings. Our group was made up of people With varying degrees of yoga experience, and from every decade of age from the 20’s to the 70’s; all seemed thrilled with the experience. The venue for this , Mystica Lodge and Retreats was a tropical paradise with the most accommodating hosts and support staff. The food was fresh, healthy and delicious (wow! The desserts!) The yoga sanctuary nestled among the trees and the sounds of a brook and small waterfall was perfectly conducive for calm. Kudos to Lauren and Kaylan.
