Costa Rica Women's Retreat
February 13 - 17 2017
This is a one of a kind, intimate and exclusive retreat in one of the most beautiful coastal towns of Costa Rica. This retreat will provide ample space to relax, renew, and reinvigorate your whole self. Daily yoga, adventures, private life coaching, a gourmet chef, and enjoying the beach in totality! This will truly be an intimate experience, with a small group of women joining together for five days to invigorate the mind, body, and spirit.
Are you looking to renew? Launch a new goal, dream, or desire? Challenge yourself on daily adventures? Are you actually daring enough to give yourself the time and space to dive into to yourself through practice, play, and being you? Are you interested in life coaching and looking to try it out? Do you want to kickstart the rest of your year renewed and inspired? If any or all of these ring true to you and you are willing to come as you are, to challenge yourself, to unplug, and dive into the experience this is the retreat for you.
Here's the deal. You have to want to be here, to both give yourself the space to relax and to dive into your own personal growth. What is it that you desire most right now, what are you yearning for, and how are you going to bring it into fruition? The retreat is about adventure in the wilderness and adventure into your own possibilities.
If you want to re-invigorate your whole self with yoga, adventures, creating relationships, and just enjoying the moment, then this intimate women's retreat is right up your alley. It also will test you, as with loving support we might go places that are a bit "uncomfortable", be it surfing, hiking, SUPing or in the private coaching sessions. These will be real and raw experiences. We will get to know one another, go on adventures, support one another, and create lasting relationships!
You are in control of your reality - how do you want to live it?
I want to make sure this is a right fit for you! So if you are interested, email me and let's find a time to chat then we can move forward with booking!
If you are interested in this experience but looking for a personal experience, not in a group I also offer personal retreats in Aspen, Colorado and at other locations.
Rancho Paloma Azul is a beautiful private home on Playa Guiones, just a 10 minute walk down the beach from the town of Nosara. It is a peaceful walk to town and just far enough that it is serene, quiet, and on a less populated part of the beach. With a private path it is only a 4 minute walk from the backyard to the beach. Perfect for the afternoon siesta, when you can choose what you want to do for yourself.
Rancho Paloma Azul is located in a private, gated community with 24 hour surveillance and guards. Nosara is an extremely safe town, so it is an added bit of peace with the extra security and feeling of safety.
Private and shared rooms available. Rooms include air conditioning and safes. There are a limited number of private rooms - so book first if you want your own space.
A little more about the property:
With an indigenous open-air ''palapa'' style patio structure made of beautiful teak wood, the Rancho is the social hub of the home. It includes an open kitchen, bar counter top & stools and a large communal dining area along with open-air hammocks and lounge day beds and views to the beach. This building is immediately adjacent to the private swimming pool.
THE SWIMMING POOL:
A fully pool tiled with shallow and deep areas the Pool uses a salt water chlorine generator, so no harsh chemicals for eyes, skin and hair.
A friendly, full time on-site caretaker lives on the property to provide 24/7 security for the home and guests.
Daily maid and cleaning service is included in the rental of this property from Monday through Saturday.
Assistance with scheduling on-premise massage. (This is not included, extra cost to guests)
The daily adventures are a time to get outside, have fun, challenge yourself, and take in all that Costa Rica has to offer! Be it your first time or you're a "pro" at the activity, this retreat is open to all levels -- to be daring enough to go outside your comfort zone, try something new, and help the whole group through the adventure. No experience needed!!
- Stand Up Paddle Boarding through the estuary to a private black sand beach with one of the best naturalist and adventure guides!
- Zip Line through the Jungle with Miss Sky Zip Line
- Waterfall hike (get active and cool off in the waterfall!)
- Surf Lessons (Nosara is world renowned for its surf because it has waves for beginners and for more advanced. It is the perfect place to learn or to advance your skills.)
This retreat is designed to play, relax, and also dive into your own personal development and goals. Coaching is an amazing tool to support individuals in living the life they truly desire through support, accountability, inspiration, and direction. From your job, to what you do for fun, to your diet, to your friends and all of the facets of your life, coaching can unlock barriers holding you back from being your highest self.
Each participant will have the opportunity for 2, forty-five minute, private Life Coaching sessions with me. This is a great way to "taste" coaching, see if you are interested and ready to do your true work. It is also a great way to kickstart a coaching package and continue working with me beyond the program (a special package is available to add on to the retreat to extend the experience beyond Costa Rica)! We will also have 1 Life Coaching Session post-retreat to continue the experience. Check out my coaching page for more information on coaching and, of course, feel free to ask me questions!
There will be daily morning yoga session as well as an afternoon stretch and group circle. I have been teaching yoga for over 5 years. I have a strong passion to share yoga asana and yoga philosophy. The morning practice will be 75 minutes outside (in a covered area). I believe that all bodies and people can practice yoga together, so I offer Hatha yoga classes for all levels. You can amp it up one morning and take it easy the next. Injuries? No problem, we can work together to where ever your body is that day. For more information on me and yoga click here.
food & fun
Well, I have found Chef Carlos! An outstanding Costa Rican chef who makes unbelievable local and organic gourmet meals! He works with local farmers, ranchers, and fisherman providing the freshest ingredients. I am so excited for him to be enhancing our palettes and experience! He is also more than accommodating to dietary restrictions, we just need to know them in advance.
The last evening of the retreat will include a dinner out to a lovely local restaurant -- we will watch the sunset at a different beach and then sit down to a dinner on the beach!
rest renew relax
Overall, this retreat is for you and it will be what you make it. It is a time to unplug (I suggest turing off your phone/email for the duration) and dive into you - through adventure, personal development, personal time, and the power of nature. Give yourself the gift of you!!
This is an exclusive and intimate retreat for a reason. It will create a tight knit circle of women to be present, have fun, and open up!

I ask that each participant takes a few (about 10 or so!) minutes to complete a quick "application" so I can get to know you and make sure that the retreat is a good fit for you. So give yourself some space and uninterrupted time to answer the questions. Once I have had a chance to overlook the responses, I will send you a personal email invitation to set up a time for a quick chat followed by the next steps to complete registration. I ask for you to make the payment within 3 days of receiving the invitation, as it is a small group, space is limited and is going quickly!
