Costa Rica is downright blissful...
You don’t dip into the well of pura vida and pure prana and not come back feeling revived, juicy, and full of passion and love for this wild life. This retreat is going to be filled with so many moments for you to dive into the sensations of feeling truly alive. With the jungle landscape and the Pacific Ocean as our habitat for five days, you’ll come back feeling so refreshed. With this renewed perspective and high vibe, you might even gain a new lens on life. We’ll practice yoga and learn tools and techniques to take home that will help amplify and integrate your time in Costa Rica. This is your invitation to experience a healing reset for your mind, body and soul.
On our Pleasure & Prana Retreat we will:
• Explore what it means to feel fully alive and empowered in our body
• Set daily intentions, journal, and circle share
• Practice breath techniques to invigorate and inspire the warrior within
• Flow to release stagnant energy and blockages in the chakras
• Ecstatic Dance on the beach
• Ride horseback on the beach (optional)
• Receive healing touch with a sixty minute massage
• Nourish our bodies with high prana, local food
• Alchemize the energy of our retreat with a fire ritual on the beach
*There will be an opportunity for all retreat participants to meet up once in person at House of AUM and once virtually before we leave for Costa Rica.
*In addition, we will be joined by special guest teacher,
Juliana Mitchell of Living Now Yoga.

Over the last ten years, I have helped to create and lead twenty seven yoga retreats to Yellow Springs, California, Michigan, and Costa Rica. After taking a long hiatus from running international retreats, I am beyond thrilled to lead one again this Scorpio season, November 14th-19th. Encantada in Esterillos Este is everything I’ve been looking for. My time there filled me up, recharged, and changed me in many ways. It’s an incredibly healing energy to experience, we’re right on the beach, the accommodations are bohemian and charming, and the food is fresh and really delicious.
Come relax and shake up your life on the chocolate sandy beach with me, it’s absolutely breathtaking. The vibrancy, colors, energy, and juicy life that resides down there is palpable, it fills you up in such a soulful way. All of these elements combined with the natural landscape of Costa Rica make for a very supportive environment for our yoga and spirituality practice and lifestyle. It’s simple and gorgeous, two of my favorite things. -Melissa
