A wise person once said:
“Our job here on earth is to choose Joy. To integrate it into our homes, work, families, friendships, and even our clothes and home décor. We must radiate it out into the world through the expression of our truth. Choose Joy. “
This retreat is an opportunity to reconnect. To yourself, to nature, to other likeminded people, and to the simplicity of choosing Joy. It’s easy to get lost sometimes in Life’s ongoing ups and downs. Over time it can seem like we’ve lost our sense of play or like it’s been forever since we truly felt excited at the sheer privilege of being alive. If it feels like your inner light has been dimmed…. maybe it’s time. Time to step outside of your comfort zone. Time to go someplace you’ve never been. Time to rediscover the joy of being alive.
In this life-altering yoga retreat, you’ll spend a magical week in one of the most healing and pristine places on Earth, Nosara Costa Rica. The Costa Rica Yoga Spa, a boutique retreat center, is located high on a hilltop overlooking expansive ocean views and surrounded by lush tropical jungle. Immerse yourself in twice daily yoga and meditation sessions, incredible healthy food prepared mostly from organic on-site gardens, warm tropical breezes, salty waves, and endless opportunities to rekindle and reconnect to your inner sense of well-being.

A Word From Heather
"I started practicing yoga in my early teens. Initially at a doctor's suggestion following years of surgery, braces and therapy for a congenital spinal trauma. I didn't really care for it at first, to be honest! But the results were immediate. It relieved pressure and pain from my back and legs and I instantly began to feel stronger. For most of my twenties I had a love/hate relationship with my yoga practice. But it's something I have consistently gone back to again and again and has become a central core aspect of my life. I have been teaching since my early twenties.
My training has included traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and various kinds of Restorative, PreNatal and Meditation training. A few years ago I completed my Yoga Therapist certification which has greatly enriched my life and my practice. I try to keep my classes creative and fun. I don't teach the same way, every day, for every class or every person. All of my training has been very traditional. So my philosophy is about respecting the needs of each individual. Sure, yoga can be challenging. But laughter and light heartedness are just as important, in my opinion, as perfecting your Downward Dog.
To say that I have a passion for this work is an understatement. To this day I have not found anything as satisfying or as exciting as assisting people in uncovering their own strength and helping them to accept their own resiliency. We all have innate healing capabilities. Sometimes it's just a matter of remembering that; and giving the body what it needs to function optimally. I'm always fascinated, and truly inspired, watching people transform! I've seen some remarkable things over the years... but most notably is the look on someone's face, and the change in their body, when they begin to realize they are SO MUCH MORE than they've been giving themselves credit for! Yoga is truly amazing because there really is no end to the journey. It morphs and changes with us. And just when you think you've figured it all out - in comes a new challenge and a new awareness. It really is amazing! "
