Costa Rica wellness trip

We aim to share the most valuable life tools and techniques that have greatly transformed us on our action packed paths! The focal point of this week is combining the yin consciousness to the yang activity. We will be lightly covering the power of water, nutrition, gratitude, meditation, breath-work, presentness, flexibility, and yin/yang balance through physical “rock n roll” activities like surfing, SUP, yoga, diving (snorkel/free dive workshop). We are confident you will leave with an elevated connection to yourself, the earth, and this moment.

Whether you are new or experienced at surfing/SUPing/yoga or any of the above, don’t worry, this week is nurtures all levels. ALL you need is a curious mind, an open heart, a desire to move your body and a mindful attitude. Lets collectively aim to not judge each other; creating a safe space to learn, grow, and expand ourselves.

Our schedule was will as unpredictable as the wave forecast. In addition to the groups collective voice and goals, mother nature’s weather will determine what activities we can do and when. Your package will include daily surf or SUP lessons, with 1 group boat dive scheduled. You may snorkel at the top and enjoy the view, or Chanelle will guide a mellow introduction to free diving with breath work. Yoga will be practiced daily in some form, in addition to a workshop on how to integrate the 8 limbs of yoga. Again these Yang activities will be inspired by a Yin energy from within.

Whether overcoming your fear in the water or within, come face your challenges with us- peacefully and playfully! Pura Vida!


Healthy eating trip in Costa RicaThis weeks cuisine focus will be LOCAL, NON-GMO, ORGANIC whole foods. We will talk in depth about this way of living, supporting a system of farmers that truly support us, the animals, & the health of our planet! Fresh caught fish, local eggs, veggies and fruit will all be apart of the mostly gluten-free meals. Organic coffee and tea will be available, but caffeine is not encouraged, as we aim to teach you about the subtle body energy that is negatively influenced by sugar, alcohol, and caffeine. Disposable plastics will be another topic of focus. We will gifting eco goody bags to support new habits of awareness in regards to eliminating your single-use plastic footprint this week and beyond. FUN is the foundation of our days! Documentaries will be watched, discussion groups will be had, gratitude circles will be initiated, kind gestures will be encouraged and progression will be ignited!

We suggest a cleanse a week before from sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and smoking (if you dare).
