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 day trips to the pacific coast, 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.

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 Hudson Valley, NY.


I look forward to Kaylan's retreats at Mystica every year. The experience is joyful and peaceful. I plan to go again. Kaylan is equally supportive to those of all levels of yoga practice. Mystica lives up to its slogan of "Live the Magic". It is a beautiful setting, with the most accommodating hosts and their staff. The food is fresh, local and generous.

I was uncertain was to expect. The experience, for me, was more than I every could have imagined. Not only because I was in the company of good friends, but because I got to bond and make new ones too. It was so beautiful at the lodge and the entire surroundings it felt like a heaven on earth. I felt so at peace within myself and with life in general for that moment and I will forever be thankful to Kaylan for helping me find that place within. Everything was planned out so well you never felt rushed or overwhelmed. If I had to sum up all my thoughts into one word it would simply be PERFECT.
