Why Costa Rica?

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.  

What others are saying about Mariona

"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 Director at Givaudan


"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

Other Info

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!

Reviews

This retreat definitely exceeded my expectations. Everything was perfect: Nosara and its beautiful scenery, the Bodhi Tree Resort, the atmosphere, the people I met and of course Mariona. She is a great coach and in no time we all felt part of the group. She made each of us feel very comfortable and helped us connect with our inner selves. It was one of the best vacation I've ever had.

There are experiences that are life gifts, and that you will always feel grateful. This is one of those. Mariona is a person that knows how to make you connect with yourself, sees your soul and opens you to an spiritual world. When I want to reconnect with Nosara, I think in this "nosara mood" that made us feel very happy with the whole experience. The place was wonderful, everything was very well organized and the atmosphere she created was unique. We made friends for life and learnt tools to help us in our daily lifes. I can't wait for the next retreat!
By Ana R for Stream Costa Rica Retreat: The Secret To Living a Better Life on 01 Mar, 2021
Stream Costa Rica Retreat: The Secret To Living a Better Life was not just an amazing trip, but one of the best life experiences I have ever had! Mariona has a true gift when dealing with people of different backgrounds and different needs. Her ability to have us (and keep us) all engaged, learning at our own pace, taking a deeper look at ourselves… was second to none. I arrived at the retreat not knowing how to take advantage of breathing exercises, and ever since this retreat, breathing has been a daily routine for me. In addition, we had the opportunity to meet wonderful people from all over the world where keeping in touch after the retreat became a natural thing to all of us. The hotel, the Bodhi Tree is a beautiful resort and the Nosara area in Costa Rica the perfect scenery for the retreat, peaceful, with beautiful beaches, and fun activities (surfing, kayaking, paddle surf, etc…). Cannot wait for Mariona's next adventure COUNT ME IN!!!!

This was a once in a life time experience. Mariona had incredible knowledge and the ability to pass this on in a relatable way. I learnt alot in this week and will take away and use throughout my life. The bodhi tree is a beautiful well run resort
By Rachel F for Stream Costa Rica Retreat: The Secret To Living a Better Life on 03 Mar, 2020
A fantastic vacation and a real treat. Mariona is an amazing coach and managed to assemble a wonderful group of people. Everything was well organized, the hotel was nice and well-kept, and the Nosara area is beautiful. They've got surfing too!
