About this trip

Come away with us to one the world's most unique yoga retreat centers. Xinalani is a true slice of heaven and offers the perfect setting to grow & transform in your practice. This will be our third year staying at Xinalani and offering our teacher training program. We truly love this destination as it allows our students to push the pause button on life and fully immerse in the training experience. At Xinalani, everything is taken care of you; from 3 nourishing meals daily to outstanding seaside accommodations and out of this world yoga shalas. 


Owners and founders of FYS Megan and Lydia have been passionately teaching Yoga, leading training programs, continued education, and retreats locally in Idaho, Texas and globally for many years. Each instructor offers something the other does not which is ultimately what makes this duo so magnetic! These two have over 30 years of experience.  Lydia’s instruction embodies structure, safety and sequence building from an anatomical perspective while Megan will offer an insight to the energetic body, Ayurveda & philosophy. We truly believe in living a life of balance which looks and feels different for every-BODY! This is why we created Flow Yoga Collective, a school and retreats so that you too can find your state of Flow & live a life of fulfillment, abundance & passion.

Megan will offer space to explore the energetic body through her all levels elemental classes. Lydia is grounded in the foundation of a strong & safe practice that will help you discover how capable the body can be when guided with intention and structure.


This retreat exceeded all of my expectations! The yoga was phenomenal and Bodhi Tree was a magical place to experience the jungle and ocean. Incredible food, shopping, surfing, wildlife and the most special group of humans! Thank you Megan and Lydia for thoughtfully planning this beautiful week. My face is still sore from smiling and laughing!

My husband and I just returned from the Costa Rica retreat and it was pure magic! Nosara and Bodhi Tree were deserving of a 5-star review and were lovely, but the real magic was created by Lydia and Megan and the wonderful camaraderie of the community that shared in this experience. I would give more than 5-stars for Lydia and Megan if I could. I have practiced yoga with them for years and I've always felt they are some of the best yoga instructors in the world, but they created the space in this retreat to experience a much deeper level of bliss and serenity -- ultimately, the Pura Vida of Costa Rica. Perhaps the greatest testament was that my husband, who didn't have a yoga practice prior to this retreat, now wants to make a Lydia/Megan yoga retreat part of our annual vacation planning. The environment was super inclusive and welcoming of all. It really was a perfect mix of adventure, movement, good food, friendship, relaxation, and personal reflection to fill our cups and make us feel like we'd returned from a personal growth vacation/adventure. Lydia and Megan, Thank you ♥️

This retreat was lovely! From our local HMY community and camaraderie, to the beautiful shalas and flows provided in the zen spaces, to the daily meals that offered eating the rainbow with options for all dietary needs. The grounds and accommodations were extremely peaceful, I did not want to leave! Also - BONUS - free bike rentals to take into town for lunch, shopping or a quick trip to the local organic grocer!!!

I can’t say enough about this experience. Beautiful Costa Rica, beautiful yogi friends old and new, beautiful yoga classes hosted at Bodhi Tree in their incredible spaces. And they made my 40th birthday there so special. All the feels.
