feed your soul

nosara, costa rica  |  november 28 – december 4, 2021

Somewhere on the world-renowned surfing beach down the path from our chic resort home, or in the lush jungle and or during the masterfully choreographed yoga schedule is a brighter version of life. Every moment of our Costa Rican retreat is an invitation to wallow in wellness. The beauty of dwindling pristine wilderness and the Feasting menu, the yoga, meditation and cleansing rituals, all of this, all of it, is here for your awakening.

 (Jackie &Tessa) 

As former Nosaran Theresa put it, “Trust me, you want this adventure.”

Just a few minutes walk to a legendary surfing beach or to town, though it might be hard to leave the sprawling patios and salt water pool. Our chef will be creating our high-vibe meals in the open kitchen and our yoga sessions will be in the onsite yoga studio.

Our Costa Rica retreat is a total refresh and we are so excited that it is coming at the beginning of the new year, 2021. A perfect moment to quiet the spirit and allow a truer voice to emerge. From the activation of your deepest core muscles, to a ritualized cleansing program, to food that will make your cells sing, this trip is going to feel amazing.

These are the modalities and practices we will explore in Nosara. Some may be part of your daily regimen, some may be totally new. We will be there with info and reassuring vibes through all of it.

Yoga, or asana, can retrain you from shadow habits through movement. In yoga, we practice linking breath to movement, listening to our bodies voice and moving with intention. These skills show up in our lives, giving us greater poise and grace in difficulties and joys. Yoga, for many of us, is the gateway drug to spiritual growth and enlightenment.

We are food fanatics. Food is medicine, joy and connection. Our chef has created dishes that are meant to be divinely healthy (of course) and also to be an absolute pleasure. The menus change daily and are almost entirely vegetarian. We will be feasting together, every time we sit down. Feasting isn’t about gorging on decadent food. Feasting is the relishing in every bite at the communal table.

But just so you know, we got the cell-level cleansing fuel aspect covered, too. Flushing your body with the concentrated organic nutrients from local fruit and vegetables, even for a short period, is a way of filling up with pure energy – high vibrational fuel, giving your digestive organs a rest, allowing your body to absorb essential vitamins and nutrients very efficiently, and giving your system an opportunity to flush away toxins. Think of it as a major sweeping away of the cobwebs and airing out your temple. You’ll breathe easier. You’ll feel lighter and brighter. You’ll sleep like a baby.

Meditation quiets the “monkey mind,” the constant, un-directed thinking that often brings anxiety, worry and distraction into our everyday lives. Even taking five minutes to practice meditation can bring us back into the present moment, encourage better decision-making, and allow us to truly experience our lives to the fullest.

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling, or kavala or gundusha, is the ancient Ayurvedic dental hygiene technique of swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth for around 20 minutes (you can work up to this). This action draws out toxins in your body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall health.

Tongue Scraping
A tongue cleaner cleans the bacterial build-up, food debris, fungi, and dead cells from the surface of the tongue. The bacteria and fungi that grow on the tongue are related to many common oral care and general health problems. This practice feels so good in the morning, when your tongue is fuzzy. It is kind of addictive.

A secluded temple of a city, devoted to maintaining its sacred tropical wilderness. This landscape is disappearing even faster than the rest of the rainforest and it is truly an honor to witness it, in its integrity. Here in Nosara there are no chain hotels or high-rise projects congesting the coastline. Nosara’s jungles are full of enticing encounters with water birds, exotic animals and tropical plants. Pounding surf and tide pools, tranquil saltwater marshes and ancient mangroves are some of the rich biodiversity surrounding Nosara.

Nosara is located on the Nicoya Peninsula in Guanacaste and is considered part of the dry forest region. The saturated tropical dry forest, with its highly seasonal rainfall and diverse vegetation is protected by the 200 meter exclusion zone that is set aside for the preservation of the natural habitat. The enforcement of this one preservation feature has been instrumental in maintaining the pristine beaches and shoreline. Due in large part to the efforts of the Nosara Civic Association, the area remains as one of the most pristine and ecologically sound developments in all of Costa Rica.

We believe in building in open time to our retreats for rest and exploration. So few people are gifted the chance to be in wild, magical Nosara and there are so many ways to take it in the lush and pristine jungle and coastline.
