About this trip

Immerse yourself in the laid-back surf and yoga culture of Guiones Beach in Nosara, Costa Rica. Commune with your big-bad self in the waves, on the mat or in your lounge chair. Stare into space. Zone out to the sounds of birds and monkeys. Make like an iguana and bask in the sun. Eat scrumptious healthy fare. Ignite your brain during Spanish happy hour. Listen to Beverly Jane's entrancing soprano as she lulls you into savasana. Take a yoga class fully taught in Spanish. We’ve designed this retreat to expand your horizons, but this place will take you there all on its own.

    I cannot say enough glorious things about this week and our hosts Nicole and Beverly Jane. By day 2, I was so decompressed, in a zone and relaxed, it felt like I had been there a week. I thought, "How could this get any better" and it did! Everyday I thought I had reached my mountain peak, physically, emotionally and spiritually, only to learn the next day I had climbed another higher summit. Looking back I am still blown away by the Love, Support, Guidance, Uplifting Energy from the whole group, all amazing ladies. I am so grateful and blessed I took this leap, to spend a week away from the family and rejuvenate my spirit and self. Nicole and Beverly Jane did an amazing job with the schedule (just the right amount of yoga, free time, amazing surf lessons, massage, and chill time), guided classes, variety in the classes and teachers, location at Bodhi Tree resort, plus they are just super fun and amazing to hang out with! This will be an unforgettable week!!! Thank you :)

Nicole is a resident Bodhi Tree yoga instructor and has enjoyed work as a primate behaviorist, dog walker, seller of safaris and raiser of challenging kin. She’s into world traveling, hiking, skiing, surfing, good beer and not missing out on fun. Nicole’s yoga training and background can be described as an Ashtanga mishmash, but she is guided first and foremost by self-knowledge and authenticity. Nicole lives in Nosara with her family on an indefinite sabbatical as a co-owner of Nosara Spanish Institute [www.nosaraspanishinstitute.com]. She continues to be a student of life and readily admits that she knows a lot less than she thinks she did in college. Beverly Jane fell in love with yoga while searching for a bit of zen in the midst of suburbia. She passes the peace in her teaching at Sattva Village Yoga, with a focus on breath, flow and mindful self-compassion. Also a classical soprano, she shares her soul through singing, guitar and laughing with abandon. Bev's favorites, aside from her hubby and wildlings, include getting lost in a thought, getting lost on a hike, fresh eggs, honey from the hive, delicious books, all things farmy and anything that doesn't talk back.

A truly unforgettable, amazing experience. First class yoga + surf instructors, incredible group of guests, beautiful accommodations. I can’t say enough great things about this trip! I hope you organize another trip soon! Thank you for putting this together – you touched the lives of each person who participated.

This trip was more than I could have ever imagined...it was extraordinary in so many ways and I can honestly say that I got so much more than I signed up for. I recently started some yoga classes as a form of exercise and have been loving it, but I have never understood the spiritual side of yoga. Nicole and Beverly Jane took it to a whole new level for me. From the many styles of yoga that were introduced --> to the other activities and events that were planned --> to the order in which they took place, I found a whole new meaning to the practice of yoga. I'm trying to come up with more words...but there really is no way to describe the magic that happened during this week. It is something that needs to be experienced first hand.

This retreat was SO MAGICAL!!! It was everything I hoped it would be and more...the location was paradise, the organizers were so in touch with the needs and desires of the group and really thought of everything. I was able to completely relax and not worry about a single thing. I felt so safe and taken care of! And I loved the yoga. I love yoga anyway but the variety of yoga we experienced and the incredible wisdom of all of the instructors has really deepened my practice in life changing ways. Also the surfing instructors were awesome! I thought I was going to be afraid and probably totally unable to surf but they made it so accessible and I stood right up on my first try! Such an awesome experience. We had an amazing group and it felt like everyone was supported in being their most authentic selves - whether joyful and free dancing in the full moon, quiet and reserved reading a book by the pool, or tearful and deep processing through more difficult emotions. We were all supporting and loving each other through all of it during the most healing, rejuvenating, life-enriching week. I wholeheartedly recommend experiencing this retreat if/when they do it again!
I don't want to talk about how absolutely fabulous this trip was because, selfishly, when they do it again, I want it all to myself! But ok - there wasn't a single thing about this that was even remotely just ok. Everything from the accommodations to the food and the program to the other women who participated was just amazing. One of my best weeks ever! Thank you Beverly Jane and Nicole!
