BIO
Hi! My name is Michelle Rotell. I have been in the fitness industry for over 35 years, teaching a vast range of styles. I try not to take life so seriously and bring that to my yoga/fitness teachings too. I love the outdoors whether its in Wyoming and hiking and enjoying the snow or any body of water paddleboarding and SUP Yoga. I transitioned to teaching and coaching online during Covid after 15 years of owning my own studio. Being online has allowed me to help 1000's of people around the world move from a place of pain and perfectionism, to a place of peace and kindness mentally, physically and emotionally. I have always loved yoga but I submerged myself into a deeper practice of yoga and it’s sutras 5 years ago to find mindfulness on and off the mat. This helped me lose 25 pounds without really trying. My experience is forever growing since finding more balance. I have learned to not only change my relationship with my body but with food and all outside stressors. My coaching with my clients is to EMPOWER women ON & OFF the mat to make POSITIVE change. We dig deep to change habits that will ultimately heal from the inside out. We go over nutrition, fitness, business, family, time management. A "life coach" if you will, but we use full wellness to achieve growth. I want to help as many women as I can, however they need to reach their full potential, which is already in them. I can’t wait for this retreat to spread the love with strong minded women that need a digital detox and reboot to life. Namaste, Mich ❤️❤️❤️

Details

Day 1

Settle into the magic of Samara & Carillo — enjoy an evening yoga session to unwind before our first dinner together

A warm welcome to Costa Rica! A very special place awaits you in the lush Guanacaste province on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Once you've arrived at the airport in Liberia, you'll catch your group transfer directly to your blissful accommodation nestled in the sleepy coastal town of Samara. Our new home is the laidback Nammbu Beachfront Bungalows, a fantastic hotel just a short walk from both Playa Carillo and Playa Samara.

Once you've checked into this dreamy location, get settled in and feel free to connect with your fellow retreat companions and make new friends! We'll enjoy our first dinner together to celebrate new beginnings and the start of an incredible wellness journey. Later, we will open the retreat with a welcome gathering and yoga session. Like an icebreaker, we'll learn more about each other and ourselves during this introduction.

Day 2

Participate in morning yoga before breakfast, enjoy a free beach day, and close the day with evening yoga and dinner

Rise and shine — we hope you slept well last night. Before a wholesome breakfast, we'll come together to open our hips and heart in a rejuvenating yoga session in the morning. Then, enjoy breakfast before a series of workshops with Michelle and Kimmi in which you'll learn how to set your intentions and feed your body well. Before lunch, you have all the freedom to explore the magic of the coast, soak up the sunshine, and enjoy the salty ocean breeze along Playa Carrillo. This is also the perfect time to sit back, relax, and make use of the accommodation facilities.

In the evening, we'll come together for another invigorating yoga session — let gentle movement and mindful breathing calm your mind and awaken your senses. We'll then have our usual group dinner and indulge in a delightful meal over warm conversation. As the sun goes down, watch as the sky comes alive with a sprinkle of stars. This is true paradise!

Day 3

Enjoy a memorable and fun-filled stand up paddle boarding lesson in between yoga sessions

Awaken to another beautiful morning in Costa Rica, one that starts with a yoga session to help us ground ourselves in preparation for the rest of the day. Then, enjoy a nourishing breakfast to boost your energy levels before we head for stand up paddle boarding lessons! Even if you've never done it before, don't worry — you'll be taught the basics — how to stand on a board, use a long paddle, and propel yourself properly. With a little balance and patience, you'll be a pro in no time!

- Tour duration: 2.5 hours.
- Includes: Transportation from your hotel, paddling instructions, equipment, bilingual guide, and fruit and a cold drink.

After the lesson, we return to the hotel for lunch before workshops in the afternoon with Michelle and Kimmi will impart to you the wisdom on mindsets and nutrition. Following the workshops, there'll be free time for you to relax and recharge before a yoga session helps us to reconnect with ourselves after a day of excitement. Once we have let our tension melt away, we'll enjoy a delicious dinner to close the evening. The theme for dinner tonight is 'White Dinner'. If you'd like, come decked out in your best white dress!

Day 4

Discover one of Costa Rica's most significant exports on a coffee culture tour

Good morning! Take a moment to bask in the beauty of our incredible hideaway at Playa Carrillo before redirecting your inner self to focus on a soulful asanas yoga session. Once we've set our intentions for the day, we'll enjoy a delightful breakfast before embarking on a fantastic tour to discover how coffee has played a major role in Costa Rican culture over the years. Many local families still own small private farms and today you will visit one of these farms to see the process from seed to cup.

- Tour duration: Half-day tour.
- Includes: Guide and transportation.

After wrapping up our unique tour, we'll head back and enjoy the remainder of our time at the accommodation. After lunch, take some time to rest and relax before participating in workshops by Michelle and Kimmi. Today, you'll learn how to articulate the vision of your life before finding out how your gut can help you realize that vision. Partake in a yoga session to loosen your body before dinner with the group. After food, bask in the last rays of the sun as twilight fades.

Day 5

Be nurtured by nature on a safari cruise through the lush Palo Verde National Park

After our usual morning yoga routine and a filling breakfast, get ready for an adventure into incredible nature. We'll transfer to Palo Verde National Park, a journey that will take 1.5 to 2 hours (depending on traffic). One of the least visited parks in Costa Rica, this pristine location is abundant in wildlife and untamed nature. We'll embark on a boat tour through the national park to immerse ourselves in this incredible destination. As we navigate the tranquil waters of the Tempisque River in a covered boat, we'll pass by Isla de Pajaros, where numerous water birds congregate.

After the boat ride, you'll be treated to a hearty lunch with drinks. The combined total time of this tour (including roundtrip transportation from Samara) can take between 6.5 and 7.5 hours, making this a rewarding full-day nature adventure. In addition to transportation, this tour includes park admission, a bilingual guide, the boat ride, and lunch with drinks.

Back at the hotel, continue to pick up nuggets of wisdom from Michelle and Kimmi before a yoga session helps to still our minds and soothe our souls. Dinner will serve as the perfect conclusion to an action-packed day

Day 6

It’s time to say goodbye and head home

We've come to the final day of this unforgettable retreat — we hope you have had a wonderful journey connecting with your mind, body, and spirit while discovering the beauty of this special region in Costa Rica. After one last yoga session and breakfast this morning, it’s time to leave the hotel behind and depart for the airport. We hope to see you again — travel safe!
