About this trip

This weekend retreat is a special opportunity to unhook the mind, clear the body and liberate the heart in a nurturing, contemplative setting.


While it might seem like just a weekend... 2 full days + nights immersed in nature, cleansing yoga practices, and in supportive community is good medicine!


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. 


The food will be a combination of Urban Remedy from SF, and ayurvedic, delicious dinners.


I teach slow, strong and spirited vinyasa class. Classes are thoughtfully designed to the time of year, to nourish and create space in the spring for release and new beginnings.  We're so conscious of what we're putting into our bodies, this is a great opportunity for gentle release.


I feel privileged to have really special groups form around retreats, and often new friendships are formed here, and students head bak into day-to-day life genuinely changed and renewed. 


Retreats are also a huge highlight of my work as I get to form deeper connections with you, and that is just my favorite. I hope you can join us.  I am also looking forward to sitting under the stars at night - so beautiful at Wilbur! 


To good living!

Julie

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.

This was a more beautiful experience than I ever could have imagined! Thank you Julie and Kirin for creating such a wonderful atmosphere. I met a lot of amazing women here. The yoga classes and other programming were excellent all week.

A fabulous experience—Julie and Kirin did such a good job creating a safe space for us to feel rejuvenated and connected to ourselves and each other. There was a good mix of standard yoga flow classes with other uplifting and empowering experiences including a pose lab, yoga nidra and hypnotherapy, and an introduction to the practice of somatics. The retreat center environment was stunning—we saw macaws every day and ate delicious, healthy food for every meal. I can’t recommend this experience highly enough and I hope to be able to return again next year!

It was wonderful! Fabulous yoga instructors/leader and great group of people. The resort was divine and Costa Rica was magnificent! Thank-you thank-you for a restful recharge.

I have been involved with Outdoor Yoga SF for around five years, attending local yoga classes at the beach and have now joined for two international retreats. Both in Costa Rica and both have been amazingly refreshing and rejuvenating. Even these words do not really do justice to how my body, mind and soul feel after spending time with only women and in such beautiful lush scenery. The Outdoor Yoga community is so special and attracts people of all backgrounds and various personalities all of whom value nurturing and nourishing our bodies and souls. The founder Julie and teacher extraordinaire Kirin make the retreat experience unique and special! My favorite parts of the retreat have been the level and mix of yoga and other exercises such as Barre or partner yoga, dance, reiki and background/education on foundational yoga poses. There are always opportunities to learn more such as with a somatic overview, tapping or hypnotherapy. My favorite part about these retreats is that there is no pressure for joining every single thing offered, but usually I want to go to everything! I am already over scheduled in my regular life that I don't want to feel that way on vacation. I honestly don't have a lot of feeback on ways to make these retreats better because Julie has already made them so special and will continue to eb and flow with new and fun opportunities. The food was great and healthy and the amount of exercise feels really good and a privilege. I will also say, when you travel you cannot guarantee anything and sometimes there may be issues; Julie is a strong advocate for her retreat members and will support you if there are any issues at all. The excursions offered were also a nice perk to this experience. Last year I rode a horse on the beach and on a hike to a waterfall and repelled down the waterfall; it was EPIC! Riding the horse through the fields with parrots and toucans all around felt very magical! The music and singing/chanting was also one of my favorite things about this space! The music is soothing and inspirational. Thank you so much Julie and Kirin for this abundant opportunity! I look forward to more <3

Julieanne and Kirin's retreats are the perfect blend of soul food style movement, downtempo relaxation time in a gorgeous environment, friendship, delicious healthy food and fun. I can not provide a higher endorsement for a trip with these women and feel so lucky to have experienced multiple yoga vacations. Honestly, the most relaxing, deeply nourishing and low stress trips of my life. If you are reading this.....just book the damn trip. You will not be disappointed.

I recently returned from an incredible 7 day retreat at the wonderful Blue Osa in Costa Rica, hosted by Julie and Kirin. The community formed in a week amongst 15 women, ranging in age from 23-73, without expectation, and trusting something was there for all of us, was truly magical and something I have never experienced. Julie and Kirin created a safe space for us to share our grief, tender spots, goals and vulnerability. This retreat was long overdue for me, as a mom of two young girls, it truly was one of the best experiences of my life. The retreat gave me the space to be held in nature, by new friends, through delicious healthy meals and most importantly fill my cup first so I can give back to my family and those around me. Julie and Kirin are authentic, loving and inspiring in their own unique way, it was truly a gift to be able to practice alongside them and a group of beautiful women. I highly recommend any retreat with Julie and Kirin as it will change your life forever!

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.
