From Feb 23 to Feb 27, 2019, we are headed into the woods to find our roots, and experience change, adventure, healing, and friendship that will peel back our layers and uncover who we’ve always been at our core. The jungle of Costa Rica offers the perfect setting to begin a journey of this depth – the same place where Yoga Girl’s own journey began.

There will be daily yoga with Yoga Girl, 3 nutritious meals per day, lodging in a beautiful jungle lodge, waterfall adventures, spiritual rituals, and sunset meditations on the beach. The Yoga Girl Retreat is perfectly timed to end just as Envision Festival begins. Participants will receive lodging and access to the 4-day Envision Festival included in their package. This festival is a celebration of cultures colliding in art, yoga, spirituality and dance to truly allow you to settle into your new sense of self.

Magic is upon us - and it comes in the form of community and change. We hope to see you there.

Beach Sunset Meditation

What better way to close the day than to experience a sunset meditation on the beach. Root yourself firmly into the sandy earth, close your eyes, and feel the day’s last moments of sunlight on your skin. While surrounded by like minded souls, you will have an open space to sit in silence or journal to dive deeper inwards and rediscover yourself.

Cacao Ceremony

We invite you to join this sacred ritual historically performed by the Aztecs and Mayans. Native to Central and South America, cacao is a powerful heart opener that paves the way to transformation through self-love. This holy ceremony will enhance your meditation practice, awaken your creativity, focus your mind and spark your energy.

Waterfall Excursion

Join us as we hike through the jungles of Costa Rica to one of its most beautiful natural wonders, a waterfall tucked deep in the trees and a reference point for Costa Rican adventure. If you are in search of tranquillity and nature, the falling waters will cleanse your soul and remind you that there are no troubles that cannot be washed away.

Perfectly perched at the junction where the rainforest connects with pristine tropical beach, Rancho la Merced is everything that we could ask for and the true jewel of our invitation to Costa Rica.
