What You'll Be Doing In Costa Rica!

So, you're thinking about coming on our sweet retreat to Costa Rica.  I bet you'd like to have a sense of what we are going to do!

Here is a glance at what your trip will be like.

Book your flight for Saturday, February 22nd.  Try to time it so you can get to the resort for dinner time (around 6pm.)

Saturday evening:  Enjoy dinner with your fellow retreat friends (new and old!) 6pm followed by a little intro to our retreat program and followed by some restorative yoga and guided meditation.  Then head to the hot tub for a little dip before heading to bed. 

Sunday - Wednesday

Wake up with the sun and the birds.  Pre-breakfast yoga and meditation. Then we head for an uber-delicious breakfast and great conversation. There might even be some time to soak in the morning sun by the beautiful pool.  After a time, we meet for a morning workshop on self-care, pleasure practices and finding our inner peace.

After our workshop we will be ravenous and will head off to eat some lunch. After lunch is FREE TIME.  You can get some one-on-one coaching with Katie, you can get a massage, go for a swim, explore Costa Rica, go on a zip line through the jungle or you can take a nap.  You get to choose.  We meet back at 5pm for a yoga and movement class and some meditation.  Then dinner and social time.  After some pleasant digestion, there are a few optional evening activities that may include a guided meditation, a fireside dance or salsa lessons with the locals.

Thursday - this is the day we will have morning yoga, breakfast, and then we'll head back home to our "real lives" with lots of tools and ideas on how to take care of our needs, emotions and incorporate the relaxed state into our regular lives. Try to book your flights after noon on the 27th so you don't miss anything.  

Many of our previous participants stayed past the last day of the retreat to explore Costa Rica. If you would like to stay an extra day or two or five, you can let Pura Vida Reservations know and you can book and extra days for a discounted group rate. 

Are you as excited as I am?  It's almost not possible:)
