Wake up each morning where the ocean meets the jungle! Start and end your day with a yoga class and nourish yourself with healthy, local meals a day. Lay in the warm sand under the sun as you listen to the ocean waves, read a book or journal. Connect to your inner child as you play and participate in a partner yoga workshop and a surf lesson in the warm waters of the Costa Rican Southern Pacific Ocean! Also, don't forget about adventuring through the jungle and discovering waterfalls. Take home the Pura Vida lifestyle and yoga practices to navigate your life; compassing your heart's deepest desires and highest potential.
During this retreat, you will enjoy your privacy at a beautiful cabin up in Plantanillo. This small wood cabin in the jungle is equipped with a private kitchen and bathroom. Stay where the ocean meets the jungle!
Yoga and surf daily! Enjoy the beaches, adventure away to waterfalls in your free time, go scuba diving or stand up paddleboarding.
You will have breakfast and head out for the day, beginning with planting trees, sometimes mango trees and other times cacao (aka chocolate). As you plant trees, you will get to connect to the soil and strength your connection to your root chakra and mother earth. In this activity, it is a great way to leave your intentions in Costa Rica to continue growing for years and years even after you return back home as well as giving back to Mother Earth for traveling. You will go forest bath next to the waterfall and smother yourself in the dirt and blue clay to detox your skin and then jump into the swimming holes to rise off! Afterwards, you will have a fruity picnic lunch near the water's edge.
Amber's passion for connecting with others through healing led her to learn a variety of bodywork approaches. She studied Western massage therapy in Fort Collins, Colorado. Shortly after moving to Dominical, Costa Rica, Amber's love for the benefits of yoga and bodywork inspired her to become certified in Asian modalities such as Thai massage and Shiatsu (Japanese massage). Today, she weaves her knowledge of the body and the principles of yoga into each session while offering a variety of bodywork techniques.
