  • Mystica Arenal Lake Costa Rica (map)

de-stress: to release bodily and/or mental tension; to unwind

reset: to set again or anew; to restore

Join Yoga Teacher & Trainer, Transformational Counsellor, and Energy Healing Therapist Lori Myles-Carullo for a powerful and delicious week-long winter escape into the magical paradise of Mystica, Costa Rica. Take sacred time away from the stressful grind of ‘everyday life’ to be guided, nurtured, and supported in melting away tensions from your mind and body, giving yourself the life-changing gift of a total wellness reset.

This specialized Yoga Retreat is for you if:

  • you find yourself overwhelmed by life’s daily stresses and demands, needing time & space set apart to lovingly take care of YOU
  • it has become hard to handle anxieties/worries that rob you of your natural sense of connectedness, peace, and open-heartedness
  • you are going through the stress of a life transition, whether it be the loss of a loved one, relationship challenges/changes, a new job or a move, or a health issue
  • it is hard for you to get through the COLD winter without warming up and letting the golden sun soak up deep into your cells
  • you just need to breathe some new rich, pure air; set your bare feet on the warm Earth and sand; be surrounded and inspired by sharing with like-minded and like-hearted individuals; re-connect with your dreams, passions, and purpose as you clearly hear your Loving Inner Voice again

Experience during our week together:

  • daily opportunities to be guided in ancient and effective meditation practices to help witness, calm, and clear your mind
  • Pranayama (breathing exercises) geared towards purifying your body/mind/heart from toxins and tensions that have clogged up your energy channels, and balancing the nervous system so that you can once more access the part of you that is able to rest, relax, and restore
  • Essence Awakening Yoga (a combination of Hatha, Vinyasa, and Kundalini) to assist with bringing greater degrees of strength and suppleness to your body along with helping to focus and tame the wild mind
  • specialized workshops designed to clear away layers of stress/tension/trauma and activate a total wellness reset: a new opportunity to live in your body from a base of love rather than fear and to activate a radically healthy ‘new normal’
  • you will learn 5 Inner Peace Principles from ‘A Course in Miracles’ - providing you with real-life, practical applications inspired by this psycho-spiritual wisdom manual
  • we will bathe in the soothing and healing Ecotermales Hot Springs at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano, inviting the thermal warmth and rich mineral content of the waters to help us let go deeply and come out feeling re-born
  • Beach Day! Mid-week we will journey to Playa Hermosa (which means ‘beautiful beach’ in Spanish) to enjoy an ‘Oceans of Bliss’ Yoga class by the coast and to simply RELAX and savour the beauty and peace of the Pacific Ocean
