Spring 2019 GET JUICY Retreat with Maria Mendola and Serena Arora in Costa Rica!
Mar 16 - Mar 22$2,199
Get Juicy Yoga and Ayurveda Journey
Imagine a retreat from your daily routines and activities that takes you to one of the world’s magical places where lush, green forests meet the tranquil, curative ocean. Six days of restorative and healing practices at this earth-centered retreat in Costa Rica feature daily yoga and Ayurveda sadhana offered to you in an intimate natural environment.
The full moon will guide this Spring transformation, and you will be expertly led by the gentle and supportive wisdom and experience of Serena and Maria. Their combined expertise will support the shedding of outmoded life stories to create spaciousness for change to go forward in your life with fullness and joy. The holistic practices shared weave together mind, body, and soul with the goal of leading you to balance. Tools, techniques, and experiences to help create a more sustainable way of life include Rasayana, the pathway to juiciness. This is the path toward the goal of sparking your true essence of living a juicy life. Expect morning sunrise kriyas and meditation, Springtime-inspired yoga practices, and daily teachings. Serena and Maria teach tools and techniques based in millennia of health practices so you can enjoy longevity, a healthy immune system and cultivate the sacred and sometimes elusive Ojas-the inspired nectar of life.
Our backdrop is the healing energy and continuous sound of the ocean and the soft comfort of the earth jungle. The practices shared will guide you to listen deeply to allow your innate nature to emerge and inspire the true memory of your natural authentic strength, clarity and wellbeing.
Nothing less than transformative, we invite you to go inwards and awaken your intrinsic power of healing your body, mind, and spirit.
The late afternoon yoga practices will be restorative, using supportive and restful asana, then flowing into simple but profound poses connecting to the energy of Shiva and Shakti.
Getting Juicy is a process, it includes joyful communion with all the senses. Included is an amazing Ayurvedic-inspired bodywork session to lift away tightness and fatigue and increase your innate healing capacities.
This Get Juicy Journey includes an enchanted trip to Tamarindo, one of the most visited destinations in Costa Rica. Of course, there is surfing, but also guided walks under the jungle canopy, horseback riding, rafting, and Leatherback Marine National Park – one of the most important nesting sites for the endangered leatherback turtles.
In addition to yoga and Ayurvedic practices there will be opportunities to explore or learn new skills. Ocean play such as surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, and snorkeling; walks in the jungle and the charm and warmth of the local people will leave an everlasting impression of goodness and positivity in your mind.
Each time one retreats from the workaday, those experiences build our sense of inspiration and wonder. Join us for this Spring-time journey moving towards a life filled with joy, gratitude and abundance.
