Retreat Details

Join us for a week of wellness, intention, and connection. Immerse yourself in the quaint little surf & yoga town of Dominical in the Osa, Costa Rica; just steps to the South Pacific Ocean, at the private eco-retreat center, Danyasa. 

The Summer Solstice, being mid-way through the year and the day that offers the most sunlight, is the perfect opportunity to reflect on your goals, your heart’s desires, and your desired state of being. 

Through daily practices, including meditation, yoga, workshops, ceremonies, guided imagery and coaching we will salute the sun, identify goals, celebrate growth, and illuminate the path forward.
