Journey with us to a world of magnificent pink skies, stunning blue waters, and lush green jungle filled with iguanas, monkeys, and coconuts. The retreat is led by Kristin and Nicole; leaders with over 25 combined years of teaching experience and international group travel. Kristin and Nicole are seasoned practitioners and teacher trainers that are skilled in offering all-levels practices to meet everyone’s needs with safety, challenge, and inspiration. Yoga classes happen in the spectacular open-air yoga shala “Rancho” featuring breathtaking panoramic ocean and sunset views of the jungle. The food on this retreat is all plant-based, truly magical, and one of the greatest highlights of Costa Rica’s Blue Zone. Our service project includes spending an afternoon volunteering with Costa Verdes, planting trees and maintaining the green zone.

Nicole grew up in Blacksburg, Va. She attended the University of Virginia, and after 15 years of living away from the New River Valley has returned home to her roots and her and her husband purchased In Balance Yoga in the summer of 2013 from founder Becky McDaniel Crigger. Nicole has been a yogini since January 2006 and has practiced in studios all over the country and even internationally, focusing on the Bikram, Barkan, Baptiste, Ashtanga and Dharma Yoga traditions. Nicole studied with D'ana Baptiste for two years at Centered City Yoga in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2007 and 2008. Nicole loves to share movement and breath. Yoga helped her find her true self and she hopes to cultivate a community of service at In Balance to impact those in need in the area. Nicole’s advice: practice yoga with as many teachers in as many places as you can…to learn and live as much as possible. Be receptive.
