Remember what it’s like to be close to our Sacred Earth and connect to your deeper self; sit under a blanket of stars on the beach, practice yoga to the symphony of sounds in the rainforest, explore the lush flora and fabulous fauna that CR boasts, and gather with like minded women coming together to recognize that we are all, individually and collectively, a part of the natural world.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of life and transition from Winter
into Spring with Brooke on this 7 day, 6 night women's retreat in bountiful
Costa Rica. Intentionally curated practices will be offered to nourish the body
and soul. Special workshops and Earth honoring rituals will be shared to help
us remember the connection between our deepest inner selves and the
abundant external world. Together we will embark on inward and outward
bound adventures, and there will be ample time for solo reflection, exploration
and relaxation. Accommodations and meals will be provided by Vida Asana,
an eco retreat center located in Playa Hermosa which is situated on the Pacific
coast of Costa Rica and is considered the adventure capital of Central America.
The beach is just a 10 minute bike ride away from the retreat center.
Gift yourself this opportunity to restore your vibrant energy through sacred
sisterhood and feel resourced by the beauty and wisdom of the Earth herself.
