Early Bird Doors Closing Soon!

If you are looking for deep and meaningful connections in an incredible community, personal time for reflection, transformation and rest, this powerful week-long immersive tropical retreat is for you.



THIS EMPOWERING COSTA RICAN ADVENTURE is for women who want to refresh their bodies and revive their soul. Held at one of Costa Rica’s oldest and most popular yoga retreat centers, Pura Vida Retreat and Spa is perched in the volcanic hills of Alajuela at 4,900 feet above sea level. As an award-winning spa and wellness destination Pura Vida overlooks the the Central Valley of San Jose and is known for its outstanding hospitality, breathtaking views, and exquisite gardens. We’ll practice daily hatha yoga classes each morning and slower immersive restorative evening yoga workshops. Our days will be spent steeping in the practices of yoga, adventuring in the country of Costa Rica, and relaxing with massage, bodywork, and rest.

"PURA VIDA IS THE MOTTO of locals in Costa Rica and it means “pure life.” This transformative week is designed to awaken and empower you to experience life at its fullest. The perfect combination of yoga, ritual, adventure, and rest provides something for everyone. World class massage and healing therapists provide additional opportunities for each person to discover and unlock their full potential.

The plethora of options on the trip range from adventuring on a zip-line or canopy eco-adventure tour to relaxing with world-class bodywork and spa treatments. The facilitated group circles are designed to re-connect you with ritual and that which is sacred within yourself. You will leave with a new sense of empowerment: a refreshed perspective of possibilities, a supportive community of friendships, and a renewed connection with yourself.
