Our focus is on residential training in yoga and movement. That said, we like to offer retreat opportunities throughout each year as the calendar permits. In addition, another opportunity for a truly dynamic and cost affordable immersion experience is our Seva program each June.

Yoga & Meditation Retreat 

A Pause for Practice, Creativity, and Connection with Jayme Sweere and Essie Titus

Spend a weekend taking care of yourself. Days will begin and end with silence and practice. Meals are seasonal, local, and inspired by the adaptive principles of Ayurvedic philosophy. This is a great time to establish a daily practice, kick-off habit change, dive into a creative project, or simply relax and connect with nature’s rhythm. You will learn all about the yogic lifestyle and advanced yoga practice by spending this time immersed in it. Free time and guidance for hiking, swimming, or climbing nearby. Options for individualized Yoga Therapy sessions also available.

Earth, Fire, Water, Air, Space. From the ancient yogis to the indigenous shamans, humans have long known the restorative benefits of the elements. They are the ‘medicines’ we seek to purify and start anew. Join us as we explore the beautiful rain forests of Costa Rica from our private accommodations at La Carolina Lodge, eco-lodge and ranch. We will link together the metaphorical teachings of the elements within yoga and other ancient cultures, gifting ourselves a big dose of renewal in the new year. We also enjoyhorseback riding, hiking and repelling, zip lining and relaxing in the hot springs and rivers of the volcanic mountains of Costa Rica.
