About this trip

Recharge and renew your spirit with a week in paradise with Marci and the Thrive family!  Lush jungles and sandy beaches in incomparable Costa Rica.  We are staying at the newly renovated and gorgeous Vida Asana retreat center and Eco-Resort.   Vida Asana was one of the first retreat centers on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Sustainable and mindful adventure are top priorities of Vida Asana. 


Vida Asana is tucked away in the rainforest, less than a mile from the beach, and blends perfectly with the jungle environment. Playa Hermosa is a quiet surfing community, located between the beach towns of Jaco and Manuel Antonio, about 90 minutes south of San Jose (SJO) airport. This location allows our guests to enjoy a wide range of activities, if they choose to venture off of the property. 


Relax by the pool, take a nap in the "sloth station" hammock area, or hop on a bike and ride down to the beach for surf lessons.  This retreat is all about YOU! 


You truly don't need to worry about anything other than showing up. Three* nutritious, organic (as available) meals per day will be provided. Take time to Unplug, Recharge, and Reconnect at a soul level. Participate in every yoga class or pick and choose. You can join us for all-inclusive activities such as our new moon ceremony, workshops, and hike, or you can go choose your own adventure, (List of suggested excursions outside of retreat cost will be provided). 










What should I expect?

Marci hosts retreats that feel like a "choose your own adventure." It is important to her that you are able to have agency in your choices. This is, after all, a trip for you to relax (when needed), turn inward, and listen (and trust) your inner knowing. We will have planned activities, classes and workshops but everything is optional. This is YOUR time and YOUR trip of a lifetime!


You will not find a trip that has its days chock full with curriculum or expectations of you or your time.  You will choose what each day looks like for you. Marci and the retreat center take care of the details and will have each day planned with excursions, outings, or trips into town. Your job is to simply decide what you want to do!


Some people come on retreat and take advantage of all the adventure that they can fit in. They attend every yoga class and group outing they can. Others come and take the the time to write (like that book outline or blog you've been wanting to write), spend on a personal project they need space for, or just read books and go to the beach. 


🧘‍♀️ 3 daily yoga and meditation classes (2x day with Marci (or her assistant teacher TBA) and one public class you can join)

🧘‍♀️Excursions such as: 

🌴 Jungle hike to a waterfall and swimming hole

🌴Horseback ride and Jungle spa through the jungle

🌴Manuel Antonio National Park

🌴Mirador Hike

🌴Surfing

🌴Stand-up paddle boarding

🌴Zipline

🌴...and more

🧘‍♀️Unlimited Pool and Hammock time

🧘‍♀️Cacao Ceremony

🧘‍♀️New Moon Ceremony

🧘‍♀️Sangria night

🧘‍♀️Beach Dinner night

The retreat was good. The accommodations was good, however, a few more instructions or a Frequently asked questions book about where things were would have been very helpful. A fuse blew because the dishwasher and a hot water pot were working at the same time. We should have been made aware of that little quirkier. the place was lovely

I enjoyed the setting very much the overall arrangement of the location was fantastic in terms of it provide a peaceful and centered environment. The built in "stair master" was good. I felt I god my daily workout I would like to have had more discussion on the theme of the retreat. Having a driver available was great for short trips into town and surrounding areas. Thank you Marci for making it all happen.
