Nurtured in Nature: A Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica

With Kerry Walker and Carrie Mailloux

January 26 - February 1, 2025

Join us in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula for a retreat that goes beyond relaxation and rejuvenation, offering a profound journey of connection to nature, self, your desires, and energy. Step away from your daily routines so that you can explore who you are at your core and what you want in this next phase of your life. Embrace the tranquility and magic of this tropical paradise, and return home with a renewed sense of vitality and purpose.

If you live in Vermont, or another northern climate, you’ll likely be ready to take a break from the cold, dark days of winter and immerse your heart and body in the warm, nurturing embrace of the Costa Rican tropics. During this retreat, you will have the opportunity to disconnect from your regular life and reconnect with yourself and others in our retreat community. Cleanse stagnant winter energy and feel your being come to life as you bask in the sunshine and enjoy healthy, chef-prepared meals. Through the nurturing practices of yoga, meditation, breathwork and journaling , you will have the opportunity to find more ease in your movements, energy, and thoughts.

The afternoons are yours to unwind how you choose –  leisurely walks on the beach, wildlife scouting in the jungle, napping in a hammock, perhaps a kayak tour in the mangroves, or book a spa service. .

Class Offerings: The class offerings will include flow, hatha, yin, restorative and yoga nidra as well as HypnoBreathwork. In all of the classes, you will be encouraged to go inward, to experience the postures and movements from the inside out rather than focusing on outward appearances. Classes are accessible to all bodies and experience levels and you are free to attend all or some of the classes. Your time is truly yours while on this retreat.

Where You Will Stay: Your home in Costa Rica is at Nereus Retreat center- where the rainforest meets the ocean, just outside Puerto Jiménez. Enjoy modern, spacious air-conditioned rooms where you wake up to the sounds of the ocean, howler monkeys, and tropical birds. Food promises to be a feature of your stay – with colorful, plant-forward, local, seasonal chef-prepared meals that can accommodate a variety of diets.

Optional Excursion: We will visit Corcovado National Park (if you choose to join), which comprises only 3% of the country’s land mass but more than 50% of the country’s biodiversity. We will travel to the park by boat through the Gulfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf) where dolphins are often playing and will then explore the trails of the park with an experienced guide. Admission to the park is limited and booking ahead is important. Please let us know upon registration if you would like to join us for this excursion.

We look forward to exploring this beautiful landscape with you while facilitating your inward journey.
