To explain this in the purest sense, the culture and environment of Costa Rica is one that supports a healthy lifestyle. By the time you leave, you will fully embrace the country mantra Pura Vida (Pure Life). The beauty of the environment lends itself to enhance our practice of this spiritual lifestyle.
Nosara is located in the beautiful province of Guanacaste in the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. Nicoya is considered one of the Blue Zones areas where cultures have evolved to prolong the longevity of human life. Life expectancies of Nicoya residents easily surpass 100 years of age with a population far older than the rest of the country.
Secluded within the natural ambience of the jungle, the resort strives to use natural, fresh ingredients to promote a healthy lifestyle. By gathering ingredients harvested from nature, stimulating individual wellbeing on a ground level can allow one's health to blossom.
Some more info about Nosara:
"On two occasions, I had the privilege to attend a retreat led by Mariona. The sessions were well prepared, each with a specific development subject, and conducted in a holistic way. During the entire retreats, I felt guided, safe to share and honored to listen to her and the other participants' stories which all helped me in strong and subtle ways too. I left each retreat not only feeling I had taken a leap forward in my growth but taking with me a simple, constructive and easy-to-follow plan so I could continue to benefit from the teachings once back home. I am looking forward to the next one". Dominique Bession, Category Brand Fragrance Manager at Unilever United States
"I attended one of Mariona's beautiful meditation workshops during a time in my life that I really needed to pause. The space she created was intimate, open and nurturing. I've been meditating for years now, and learned different methods and gained insights from each guided meditation. I also valued the sharing amongst the other participants. Mariona is a unique and gifted teacher on many levels. I left feeling refreshed, peaceful and grateful." Christine Beal Dunst, Co-founder and CEO, EMBODY Wellness Company
“It is difficult to describe what Mariona has meant to me as a Coach, perhaps one way could be this, if I had to choose amongst the 5 people who have had the biggest impact in my life so far, she is in that list. Thank you for your vision and commitment.” Alejandro Tripoli, Founder and Partner , 121/Tribal Worldwide
"Mariona’s workshops are an essential experience for someone seeking personal mindful guidance. The group was a delightful gathering of women I enjoyed meeting all of them. Mariona has an incredible gift to work deep, gently shifting and raising awareness within, helping one to live life more presently with intention. I always left these workshops feeling happy and with a clearer insight, and inspired by these incredible women! " Christa Carr, Communications Director at The Glass House
"I started to work with Mariona at a time when I felt very tired, overwhelmed and generally sad. I knew I needed to take better care of myself and do more inner work. I had done a great deal of mindful work around my life by minimizing my stuff, having a wholesome diet, seeking holistic healthcare alternatives, and by having a not so consistent yoga and meditation practice for several years. But it was time to do some work on the inside- some emotional declutter. Since I started to work with Mariona I have joined two of her retreats, have taken a weekly series of group yoga and meditation sessions, and had private consultations. With her support, insights, resources and guidance I have been able to get clarity around my challenges, uncovered some blind spots, and identify my next best steps. Mariona has inspired me to create a sustainable mindfulness practice and to take actions towards great changes in my personal life, work and marriage. This has brought me more confidence, more soul alignment, clarity, but above all priceless peace of mind and heart. My favorite things about working with Mariona is her non judgmental, clear, no-nonsensical, and knowledgeable communication and guidance. I would jump into any opportunity to work with her again and again. Mariona embodies integrity, kindness, intentionality, passion, and joy. I feel super blessed our paths have crossed and I have Mariona in my life as a role model, a mentor, and a dear friend." Lorena Seidel, Founder of the Purposeful Child
The marriage of yoga, deep inner work and travel is a uniquely transformative experience because it allows students & teacher to escape the fog of our everyday lives (filled with commitments, to-dos, work,and family), and to carve out space to just BE.
This is a transformational retreat where we will practice yoga, meditation, and breath work every day. An opportunity to recharge batteries, feel nurtured , reconnect with self and nature, and return home feeling more relaxed and grounded.
Please read below to understand whether STREAM is a good fit for you:
You don't need to be an expert yogi to join, some previous practice is recommended, but don't let that stop you, if tree pose is not your forte, feel free to practice "branch" :). This is yoga for everybody and every body.
While we will have plenty of time to connect, have fun and play, please bear in mind that this is not a party retreat. Consumption of alcohol is not recommended but if you decide so, please do so moderately. If you are tired the following day, it will impact you and the rest of the group.
We will gently play with the practice of silence at breakfast time, right after yoga and meditation. In our busy lives we rarely experience silence & mindful eating and, both have a profound effect in our wellbeing.
All yoga props will be provided, you only need to bring comfortable, appropriate clothes to practice.
This is a green resort, so no plastic bottles are available. Tap water is perfectly safe, so please bring your own bottle.
Both men and women age of 18 and older are welcome in this retreat.
While you don't have to, if you feel like using this week to further increase your wellbeing by doing a gentle detox, please inform me personally and I'll be delighted to make some suggestions.
I look forward to seeing you in Costa Rica!
