Join us for a week of fun in the Costa Rican sun! Take the opportunity to retreat from the business of your life and reconnect with the beauty within and around!

 So much more than a Yoga Retreat

Spread your wings

Explore, adventure and learn how to identify and shift inner blocks that hold you back from living your most fully expressed life.

Nourish Your Soul

Connect with your own divinity, opening up a channel for clarity and guidance that will continue way beyond our week together.

Transform Your Life

Discover how to manifest the greatness you sense inside you, move past your limiting beliefs and your life will never be the same.

Surround Yourself in Exotic Nature

Let the soothing sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep, wake up to the calls of howler monkeys and lounge in a hammock on our terrace with views of lush vegetation.

Rest and Rejuvenate

In a world of fast forward, become one with the ocean and the tranquil ambiance as you feel your body releasing tension and letting go…

Connect with Your Tribe

Meet like-minded individuals and community leaders who are also on a path of exploration. Often long term bonds are formed through this process of sharing and supporting within a sacred space.

Yoga and Meditation

Quiet the mind and connect with stillness to access deep tranquility and your soul’s message for your life path. These ancient practices are conducive to allowing a sense of peace and ease to unfold in your being.

Dancing, Drumming and Ceremony

Like the Ancients, we will use ceremony (fire, dance, music, drumming, chanting and story telling) to celebrate, strengthen the bonds within the group and to connect with mother earth and nature spirits.

Excursions

Easily accessible half-day adventures include: horseback riding, canopy zip lining, snorkeling, fishing, and hiking in Rincon de la vieja national park. Also, nearby are boat tours to Playa Ocotal’s black sand beach and pristine waters.

Enjoy a magical day of adventure and fun!

Visit the world-famous Rio Celeste waterfall and Tenorio Volcano National park. Set in the mountains in rural northwestern Costa Rica, the Rio Celeste (Blue River) and waterfall is a breathtaking natural wonder that one has to see to believe. The brilliant blue water, which seems altered at first blush, gets its show-stopping hue from a chemical reaction between volcanic minerals. A walk through Tenorio Volcano National Park will take us along the riverbed. Imagine enjoying a picnic lunch next to this beautiful landscape.

Later, we will visit the 500 year old Ceiba tree that was the inspiration behind James Cameron’s Tree of Souls in the movie Avatar and have dinner overlooking the beautiful vista of lake Arenal with the volcano in the distance.

Sharon Cohen
Naturopath and Energetic Healer

Sharon’s purpose in life unfolded when she was 25, and her mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Seeing her go through traditional medical care made her realize that there was a missing piece. She found it in holistic healing, which looked at the whole person and not just body parts. Sharon began training in a number of different healing modalities and understood that although sometimes we need a little help, we have the power within us to heal ourselves. She felt called to devote herself to empowering people to love, appreciate and heal. It is her firm belief that you CAN feel radiant and energized – all day, every day as you move past old programming that no longer serves you and allow your most passionate dreams to unfold.

Sharon grounded herself with a solid education. After completing her degree in Psychology, she studied Naturopathy at Institute NHC as well as Energetic Healing, Her certifications extend to being a Bioset Allergy Elimination practitioner, as well as a Cranio-Sacral therapist. It is important to Sharon that she continues to invest deeply in her own inner development, healing and transformation.

Since 1995 Sharon has been in private practice, specializing in holistic services that include emotional and spiritual counseling, balancing hormones, assisting in the healing of digestive challenges and allergy elimination. Her goal is to encourage her clients to hear and act on their inner wisdom so that they can feel energized, inspired and freed up to live a life they love.

My intent for this trip was to work on me and release all what was not needed any longer. Costa Rica and my new family did that for me!! I have a new outlook on life and the with the people I meet. If you are looking for a life changing experience this is it!!
Karonhiahawi Sheila McComber
To say this retreat was transformational is an understatement. Each participant experienced many “aha” moments. We faced challenges head-on to create positive shifts in mindset and behaviour. The atmosphere alone was enough to relax the body and mind, melt pre-conceived notions and inspire renewal and bliss.
Heather Boyd

Who should attend?

Individuals who want to explore, try something new, connect with their tribe, get away from the cold in the winter to an exotic destination and who want to live more vibrantly, make a positive impact and connect more deeply. They have a sense that there is more they are meant to do in this lifetime and are ready to figure out.

Could this be you?

For over a year now, I’ve been dreaming about being part of a retreat in an exotic setting and I must say it was worth the wait to go to the right one! I can honestly write a book about the week I’ve spent at this retreat! So many things to say! I was soaring through the sky from day one!! Overflowing with positive energy, happiness and just simply being high on life! I am not exaggerating when I say that this retreat has changed my life in an enormous way. It has given me wings to be who I was meant to be and to follow my true calling.
Eddy Dadyan

My heart opened in Costa Rica as a result of the work I did with Lianne and Sharon. I arrived in CR quite stressed and feeling alone and left with my self and my tribe, a group of extraordinary women and a man, all of whose friendship still remains strong. A perfect complement to each other, Sharon worked on the emotional pieces that blocked me from moving forward and Lianne gave me the practical tools I needed to apply what I had discovered, in real life. I left CR inspired, empowered and less afraid to explore all the unknowns in my life. And I have already registered for next year. A beautiful location, there was time to explore and just enjoy the beautiful sunsets and ocean…if you have the opportunity, go.
