What others are saying
Coming to a Ayurvedic healing retreat changed my life! I went in March of this year, our host Stephanie was so amazing & kind. I learned so much more & it has stayed with me- the energy, the universal energy shift has changed who I am. I went in a sad soul, questioning almost everything about my life & purpose. Now, i’m planning on returning next year for another retreat & I am moving forward with my very own wellness business to help people heal integrating Ayurvedic healing practices among other energy practices as a Reiki master. Costa Rica & the “pura vida” vibe changed my life forever. I highly recommend going, it is an incredible experience from the host to the food prepared daily.

We only work with highly experienced and well-trained guides who hail from a long lineage of the shaman, who will help prepare you and ensure a safe and effective experience. We also have a medical center with fully qualified doctors close by.
