When we gather in sisterhood, we remember together with each woman as a sacred reflection and witness. Our ancient soul and feminine self is calling us home to nature; calling us home to sisterhood. The time is now to connect more deeply with the earth, the elements, and her plants as they carry the wisdom needed to move forward in these times. 

We are remembering that we can heal ourselves with the feminine wisdom and traditions that live within us and are ready to be reawakened.

We are remembering the simple beauty and power of singing songs around the campfire, being awed by the stars, feeling the healing force of the shining sun, bathing in her cleansing crystalline waters and breathing in her fresh air. 

Our ancestors are knocking on the doors of our hearts, and we are answering the call. Our life truly is the answered prayers of our great great grandmothers. We are here to carry forth the healing in our lineage, as we heal ourself. 

Retreat Flow

Each morning after greeting the sunrise, we gather in the open air yoga shala to share in a movement and meditation practice as you take in the vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the serenity of the surrounding jungle. Lacey will guide you through a variety of styles of yoga, dance, and meditation inspired by the daily theme which has been carefully curated to offer you an intentional and transformative experience.

After a deliciously fresh breakfast, we will hike to an epic nearby waterfall or gather in sisterhood circle to explore and remember the ancestral ways of our feminine wisdom. Together we will remember what it means to be a woman of the earth who is deeply rooted in her center and deeply connected to nature.

We will remember the wisdom of our great grandmothers and bring back the traditions and practices that support us as women and mothers throughout the many initiations in our life. We will reawaken our inner maiden, mother, matriarch and crone wisdom so we can be of service to ourself, our family and the world. We will reawaken our inner medicine woman and connect with the wisdom of our womb as we honor ourselves as cyclical beings.

A healthy lunch is enjoyed on campus, at the waterfall or the beach. The afternoon allows space to rest, read in a hammock, enjoy the all natural pool, or treat yourself to a massage. Grounding dinners are served after witnessing the mezmerizing sunsets.

The retreat also includes three very special ceremonies and a variety of ancestral arts workshops.

Experience a heart opening cacao (raw chocolate) ceremony with music, song, dance, and ritual guided by Lacey. The cacao is sourced locally from the local Indigenous Bribri people and is truly a gift for your body, mind, heart, womb and spirit. The intention of this ceremony is to release, cleanse, heal, reawaken, rejoice and expand your self love.

The second ceremony, will be a sunset beach ceremony.

We will connect with the great mother ocean and share in a special womb healing journey that has been passed down to me by my teacher Monika Nataraj, and her teacher, Marcela Lobos. This ceremony, originating from the Shamans from the Peruvian Andes and Amazon Jungle, is an initiation given by lineage of women who freed themselves from suffering and they want us to remember that we did not come to suffer, but to be powerful creatresses.

The third ceremony will be a powerful group breath work and crystal bowl sound journey where you will be held in safe space to relax, release, purify, tune into your higher wisdom and receive insights and guidance, all through the power of breath and sound. Connect to body, mind, heart and spirit.

Throughout the entire retreat we will be connecting with nature, the elements and the wisdom of our ancestors. One special workshop will be a hands on pottery experience where you will be able to create your own power piece that you can take home with you.

Other practices include drumming, elemental song circle, fire building, barefoot jungle hike, making a herbal wand, womb dance and so much more!

The retreat offers ample time and support for deep rest, relaxation and integration. One of the annual retreat highlights is the private waterfall all natural spa day with healing Costa Rican blue clay full body treatments and fresh aloe vera hair masks.

Take this time for you and dedicate this retreat to your holistic well being and remembrance of Self. Recharge physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Immerse yourself in the healing jungles and waters of Costa Rica and fill your cup.

It was a mini adventure getting there, but the class was definitely worth it! (I think all adventures feel that way). I  left my hostel and began walking -uphill, and in the wrong direction – for about 10 minutes, away from the beach. (Yes I know, not smart thinking for a class advertised as “beachfront yoga.”)

Once I got to the top of about 3 steep hills and realized this, I turned around and got going in the right direction. I passed through Montezuma, and found myself on a narrow dirt road, toward playa grande, which quickly turned into a path that came out onto the white sandy beach. 

So here I am, standing on the most beautiful beach I’ve seen, and at the same time pretty much running to yoga- again not the most ideal situation. I continue walking along the beach thinking maybe I’d see some yogis in downward dog, but not to my luck. At this point I figured I was lost, late and was ok with spending my morning walking oceanside. 

It was at that moment that I came across the hotel (apparently you can’t drive there and actually have to walk the beach to arrive).  Welcomed by the beautiful gardens, I made my way up to the yoga hall. 

  

The space is on the 2nd floor above the restaurant overlooking the ocean and the beach. It’s all made of wood and decorated in a chakra theme. The open window walls allow you to gaze out beyond the tops of the palm trees as far as the eye can see. 

  

Yes, I wasn’t that late… Thank you Costa Rica time! Pura vida! Ximena, the instructor, greeted me with a warm welcome and began the class with a grounding initial relaxation. 

This is exactly what I needed- it allowed me to slow down, let go of the morning rush and even stop sweating! She focused on deep abdominal breathing, filling the entire body with oxygen and letting go. We inhaled for 4 counts and exhaled for 8. This technique of slowing down the exhale truly calmed the nervous system and mind almost immediately. She invited us to breathe into our entire body and accept it the way it is- perfect. 

With each couple of breaths, we focused on our different bodies, moving from the physical, to mental, emotional and spiritual. For me, it was the perfect start and I knew immediately that I would take more than the physical benefits from the class.

Next, we focussed on some gentle warming exercises to stretch the neck, shoulders, wrists, spine and rib cage. It was ideal for anyone who had been traveling or for those on a relaxing vacation away from their busy lives.  

We continued to warm the body with the practice of some classic sun salutations, always with a focus on the breath- especially the exhale.

She reminded us the benefits of inversions and the calming and restorative power of downward dog.

 

  I loved the slower pace of the flowing sequence which really allowed you to keep focus on breath and to stretch into hips and back, all while strengthening with warriors and plank pose.

  

The next portion included a variety of classical asanas: twists, forward folds, balance poses. Throughout the postures, Ximena had a natural way of sharing yogic teachings about staying present, being still and also on the energy of the chakras. She also played some soft music in the background: a mix between flute and mantras. It was a nice touch, and I was happy it wasn’t overpowering the sound of the majestic waves.

I loved gazing out during tree pose as I saw a giant iguana crawling down a palm tree followed by a group of 6 pelicans flying by over the water. We were even graced by some horseback riders passing by. It all made me smile.

The practice was a graceful balance between ease and effort. As a yoga instructor myself, I really felt inspired by Ximena in the way that she presented the class and made it accessible for all levels. Her sweet and playful energy was also a blessing.

The class ended with a brief meditation where she chanted a beautiful mantra before we reclined back for savasana.

  

I felt so much gratitude (well for -actually finding it and making it to class) for the gift to practice above the beach, looking out to mother ocean. I often like to close my eyes when I practice, but I was feeling guided to gaze softly outward. I learned so much in that 90 minutes while watching the waves with so much awareness. I most vividly remember noticing the yin and yang between graceful rolling waves and the powerful crashing  break. It reminded me that our lives are just that, moments where we are flowing with ease and grace, followed by moments of crashing stress or devastation. What I also understood is that we need to honor our softness just as much as our power- we need both, a blend of the heart chakra with Manipura, our inner fire.

  

We think that we need to take an adventure to paradise, in the middle of no where, on a beach… To experience bliss. Don’t get me wrong I am forever grateful for the class and the opportunity to be a student. However,  I truly know that every moment is filled with beauty, wonderment and stillness, I just need to take the time to pause, recognize and remember.

  

Afterward, you can enjoy the same view down at the restaurant and treat yourself to a delicious shake with superfood spirulina! I indulged inan iced chai tea latte sin azucar.
