About this trip

Hi there ❤️  

We're excited you're here. We'd love to share more about this Costa Rica Yoga + Surf Retreat with you.  


For Kirin and I, Costa Rica is one of those magical gem places you visit, and part of the sweetness of that place stays with you forever.  The kindness, purity, and vitality of the people and the land resonated deeply with me when I visited in my early 20s. The prana (life force energy) is so rich here. The mountains and cliffs meeting the ocean, the pristine jungle and the commitment to preserving the land, and the feeling of safety and ease to explore a place that still feels untouched and beautifully rugged. Over the last couple years I've been feeling called to return here and reconnect to this space while sharing in the immense beauty of a yoga retreat at Blue Osa, a beautiful, luxury eco-resort.  


A quick note about yoga retreats! In case you haven't been on one with me, or on one before. I have lead about 15 retreats over the past 6 years, and every single time I arrive I am thank myself over and over again for carving out time and space for what really feels like a sacred ritual of taking a week each year to dedicate to daily practice, rest, room for spontaneous adventure, deeply nourishing food, movement, and of course community of like-minded practitioners seeking to elevate ourselves not only to reconnect to the joy, bliss and freedom that is available to us in each moment, but also because we understand that filling our own cups back up allows us to be of great service to our family, friends and the world.  


The foundations of our retreats are:

  • Arrive as you are, and receive the gift of time, space and immense beauty.
  • Reconnect to your body and vibrant health through daily movement, nourishing, lovingly-prepared food, rest, and play.
  • Be around people who are like you: dynamic, inherently creative, seeking to joyfully realign, feel inspired and connect to your true self. Spontaneous conversations are some of my favorite parts of retreats.
  • An element of travel always opens us to new perspectives and a sense of beginning again, here and now. Appreciation for culture and place.
  • Deepen your practice and feel supported in spiritual community and practice. Practices and workshops to engage your mind and the part of you that always wants to learn, and of course open your heart, and strengthen your body while softening your shoulders ;)
  • Begin to feel the affects of daily nourishment in your body, mind and spirit after a few days of retreat, and feel connected to the part of you that knows that all is possible. Feel yourself begin to dream, vision and connect to what you want to cultivate in your life most.  We will have time where we talk about the yogic practice of intention, vision and manifesting. And this also tends to happen very organically when we have mental space and time, and when we feel alive in our bodies - that the full possibility and sweetness of life allows us to dream in new ways we hadn't yet imagined.
  • Make space for magic to come through - set yourself up for continued growth, love, ease, and clarity!!

RETREAT DETAILS: 


- Meals: Meals here are plant-based and gluten-free. Eggs are served as an option with breakfast, and animal protein is served as an option for 3 dinners. Delicious plant-based options are the mainstay at every meal. 


- Shared Rooms: Most people who join the retreat share a room with someone they haven't met yet! I consciously pair people based on my intuition and the information I receive from you. Sharing rooms is common on a retreat, and always works out beautifully. If for any reason your room situation doesn't work out, there is always another option we can work out for you. 


- Yoga Practice: The morning yoga practice will be a steady, vinyasa practice with a focus on connecting or reconnecting to a strong, steady foundation. All-levels or practitioners are welcome, and I will offer in every practice options for rest and modifications as well as to amplify and advance your practice. I recommend using the retreat as inspiration to practice yoga at least twice a week leading up to this time!  


- To book: Please email me and share a bit about you! We want to get to know you and also make sure it's a great fit for you. Share any of these details: Where you’re from, where you live, how you found us, what resonates most with you about this retreat, and any questions you have. We don’t require an application, but we do want to make sure if you’re joining that this sounds like a good fit for you, and that you have any questions you have or ways we can support you to make this retreat most special for you.  You can reach me here: julianneyoga108@gmail.com 


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


As a dedicated student of yoga for over a decade, I truly believe that nourishing ourselves nourishes all life. Investing time and energy back into ourselves is essential to remember we are not only here to be of service, but to know ourselves as divine and worthy of receiving as well. We will use the yogic philosophy of the 8 limbs of yoga as a foundational teaching of this retreat, and explore how we can use the limbs to experience the joy of the inner most self, and express that in our being. We will also have a couple afternoon workshops on invoking possibility, learning energy tools and yoga philosophy that support clear and intuitive visioning. This material is deep and rich and I reserve for retreats when we have time and space to dive in.  


Come join us! This retreat is a time for you to slow your roll.. to live in the present, be wonderfully pampered with delicious meals, transformative yoga, immersed in nature and open to all that possible for your life! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.  


With love, Julie and Kirin

I draw on the contemplative traditions of reiki, meditation, yoga, nutrition, positive psychology and integrative wellness to address the entire human experience - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I teach a steady, strong and spirited vinyasa class. Classes are thoughtfully designed to the seasons and time of day. You can expect to chant, sweat, feel your heart come alive and learn new elements of yoga philosophy in each class. I also love teaching restorative yoga and yoga nidra in late afternoons and evenings on retreat.

Incredibly magical!! A MUST for everyone! Not only is the location a surreal paradise but Julie and Kirin created a welcoming space that allowed me to explore physical, mental, and emotional areas to grow through. I felt connected with everyone who attended and with the wildlife and nature around us. I finally discovered a home within myself. I look forward to many more retreats with them!
By Jade F for Costa Rica Yoga + Adventure Retreat with Julie and Kirin on 06 Feb, 2022
I am lucky enough to know Julie and Kirin through the OutdooryogaSF community and blessed to experience their teachings on the shores of San Francisco. When I saw that they were offering this retreat, I was quick to sign up. I knew, without a doubt in my mind, that it would be a special experience. However, I couldn't have ever imagined how magical it would be. From start to finish, from the well-organized travel logistics to the incredibly beautiful yoga classes (and everything in between!), Julie and Kirin ensured that we felt supported and free/safe to authentically experience the journey in all it's forms. I found the ratio of free time to scheduled time was perfect. The stunning resort, the healing food, and the variety of offerings available to us (from yoga to breath work to dance workshops!) made for an incredible time. I felt held by the structure of consistent/nourishing daily offerings while having ample time to relax, integrate, and explore. Kirin and Julie are both uniquely gifted yoga teachers. Both of them embody the yogic way, far beyond their role as teachers. They are disciplined practitioners themselves, truly living in alignment with yogic principles. You can literally feel this through their lovely presence. Throughout the retreat, they cultivated a deep sense of connection among our group, created space for transformational reflection, and sparked so much joy! If you're considering a retreat, workshop, or class with either or both of these teachers ~ from my heart to yours, go for it! I am beyond grateful for this extraordinary experience.

Such an incredible experience! Julie & Kirin put on a truly amazing retreat! The location was spectacular, and the whole week felt like a dream. It was the right balance of structure and free time, time to reflect and time to just be, create memories with new friends, and spend valuable solo time. Their openness, wisdom, silliness and amazing personalities shone through everyday. Highly recommend!
By Alicia R for Costa Rica Yoga + Adventure Retreat with Julie and Kirin on 01 Feb, 2022
Everyone was so nice. The location is beautiful and the food was very good. Julie and Kirin were wonderful. I would highly recommend.
By Margaret R for Costa Rica Yoga + Adventure Retreat with Julie and Kirin on 01 Feb, 2022
Julie and Kirin created an experience that was so much more than yoga. They created a space for people to be open and true allowing real connection and self-reflection. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a fulfilling yet playful rest.

Since returning from Kauai, I have felt a sense of retreat throughout my days. Peace and serenity weave through my day, easing the stress from work and everyday tasks. I am motivated and inspired to continue what I have learned on the retreat and bring it into my daily life. This retreat showed me what it was like to take care of myself and ultimately how that will help me to take care of those around me. From eating healthy meals, to practicing yoga regularly, to calming my mind and practicing kind observations. A huge thank you to Julie for her care and support during the retreat. It was a treat being able to spend this time with her guiding our group. She was prepared and had lots of information and goodies to share, yet was flexible and open to changing the itinerary based on the needs of the group and the weather. Her knowledge of yoga, the island, cooking, and many other great things kept us inspired and in awe. I would recommend a retreat with Julie to anyone with a curious mind, an open heart, and anyone who wants to truly relax and retreat in a healthy and rejuvenating way.

Julie’s yoga retreat in Kauai was absolutely magical. It was obvious she put her heart and soul into every aspect of the trip from bringing together an amazing group of women to cooking delicious meals to leading us on transformative adventures. Experiencing the infectious passion and energy of her yoga classes daily was a powerful force throughout the trip. The memories from our time in Kauai will stay with me forever!

I couldn’t rave about Julie’s retreats enough. She is the perfect planner and takes all of the hassle out of trip organization and travel with her retreats. From morning practice to meal planning to daily adventures, the February 2018 Kauai retreat went beyond my wildest expectations. Her yoga sessions are the best mix of relaxation and strength. You’ll come away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and in a state of bliss.
