Setting sail on a voyage within: A serene arrival and soulful grounding at Nammbu Beachfront Bungalows

Upon your arrival in the lush, vibrant heart of Costa Rica, you'll be seamlessly transferred to the serene embrace of Nammbu Beachfront Bungalows. Nestled within the picturesque Guanacaste Province, moments away from the crystal-clear waters of Carrillo Beach, this haven offers not just a stay, but an immersion into the tranquil, authentic rhythm of Costa Rican life. As you settle into your new sanctuary, surrounded by nature's unparalleled beauty, allow the tropical breeze to whisper a welcome, encouraging you to release, relax, and reconnect with your inner essence.

As the sun begins its gentle descent, our journey inward commences. Gather in a sacred circle of new friends, kindred spirits united in a shared quest for healing and nourishment of the soul. Here, in this space of vulnerability and strength, we lay the groundwork for our time together, sharing our hopes, our dreams, and setting our intentions under the canopy of the evening sky. As night falls, we'll connect with the earth's grounding energy through a gentle, rejuvenating practice, setting the stage for a retreat centered on renewal, joy, and alignment.

Day 2 · November 24, 2024

Inner clarity and communal joy: Blending yoga, community, and nature's rhythm

Awaken with the sunrise, greeting the new day with an invigorating yoga practice, where each breath and movement invites clarity and peace into your being. As the tropical sun ascends, join together in communion for a nourishing breakfast, setting the tone for a day filled with exploration and personal growth. The morning unfolds into a tapestry of connection and laughter during our group circle and playful activities, designed to ignite your spirit and foster deep bonds within our community. After savoring a delightful lunch, the afternoon is yours to bask in the sunlit bliss of Carrillo Beach, surrendering to the soothing rhythms of the ocean or delving into quiet reflection.

As dusk embraces the horizon, gather once more for a heartwarming dinner, followed by an evening circle where gentle practices guide you toward inner tranquility, culminating in cherished moments of solitude under the starry sky.

Day 3 · November 25, 2024

Awakening authenticity: A day of holistic discovery and nature's healing

Embrace the dawn with a yoga session that stirs your inner energy and aligns your vibrations with the day's empowering potential. The communal breakfast that follows is a feast not just of sustenance but of authenticity, a time to unmask and share in the holistic journey of self-discovery with your fellow retreat companions. The heart of the morning beats in the rhythm of our group circle and play, a space for healing and genuine connections, where laughter and empowerment intertwine.

Come midday, a shared meal transitions into an afternoon of adventure, as we embark on a guided hike, an opportunity to intimately engage with nature and reflect on our individual and collective paths. Evening brings us back together for a nourishing dinner, followed by a group circle where gentle evening practices invite deep relaxation and freedom to explore the serene night on your terms.

Day 4 · November 26, 2024

Restore and rejuvenate: A day of clear minds, spirited hearts, and serenity

The morning whispers a gentle invitation to alignment, as you welcome the day with a yoga practice that seeks to clear your mind and center your spirit, setting a foundation for a stronger body. As you move from the tranquility of the mat to the communal joy of breakfast, allow the conversations and shared smiles to restore parts of you that you didn't even know needed healing.

Mid-morning, our group circle offers a sanctuary for laughter and play, a time for souls to dance freely, unburdened and aligned with the joy of living. Lunch ushers in a period of leisure, where the serene beach becomes a backdrop for reflection or freedom, a time for the spirit to simply 'be'. We then depart for a turtle nesting tour, a guided excursion where we can observe and learn about sea turtles as they come ashore to lay their eggs, providing insights into their nesting behavior, conservation efforts, and the importance of protecting their habitats.

As sunset hues paint the sky, the day culminates with another enriching dinner, followed by an evening circle where gentle practices guide you towards deeper restoration, leaving you free to absorb the night's peaceful energy in your own sacred space.

Day 5 · November 27, 2024

Flow and unwind: A day of rejuvenating movement and relaxation

Greet the day with a yoga practice that celebrates movement, awakening every cell to the potential of the day. This physical journey transitions seamlessly into the collective warmth of breakfast, a time for nourishing both body and spirit. Our group circle is a vibrant tapestry of shared stories and laughter, an arena where fun meets profound connection, fostering a sense of community and joy.

Post-lunch, the afternoon unfolds into a canvas of free time, an invitation to relax deeply or explore at your whim, embodying the true essence of restoration in whichever way speaks to your soul. As twilight paints the sky, gather for a heartfelt dinner, leading into an evening circle where gentle practices soothe and restore, easing you into the tranquil embrace of night, leaving space for personal reflection or shared moments under the stars.

Day 6 · November 28, 2024

Nearing journey's end: A day of gratitude, unity, and peaceful contemplation

The penultimate day of our journey begins with a yoga practice imbued with gratitude and reflection. This is not just another morning; it is a celebration of the transformation experienced, of the bonds forged, and of the personal revelations uncovered. Breakfast becomes more than a meal; it is a communion, a shared space where every bite is savored, every smile exchanged holds deeper meaning, and the air vibrates with the collective energy of anticipation and appreciation.

Our final full-circle gathering before noon is charged with a unique blend of joy and reflective nostalgia. Here, amidst laughter and shared memories, we acknowledge our growth and the fun of our communal discoveries. As the afternoon unfurls, we will share lunch before a 70-minute relaxing massage that will help us release tension and find a space of deep comfort. The beach then offers a sacred space for silent reflection or joyous release, a precious slice of freedom to savor the beauty of nature and the profound journey we've embarked upon.

The evening's dinner is a feast not just for the body but for the soul, setting the stage for an intimate final circle. Here, in the embrace of gentle practices, we honor our journey of coming back to the self, sealing the intentions and transformations that have unfolded. As night descends, we have some free time to linger in the magic, to connect deeply with the self and others, cherishing the precious moments of tranquility and the whispers of the ocean's tide, a harmonious prelude to our journey's end.

Day 7 · November 29, 2024

Time for goodbyes as we step back into the world

This morning, we gather one last time on the mat, moving through a yoga practice that encapsulates our journey — each pose a memory, each breath a token of gratitude. Our final meal together is a tapestry of flavors and emotions, a shared space where farewells mingle with promises of sustained connections. The closing circle, a poignant culmination of our shared experiences, is a space of heartfelt gratitude and mutual support, a sacred moment to acknowledge our growth and the memories we've created. With bags packed and hearts full, we depart, not as strangers who once met, but as a community forever united by this transformative journey! Until next time, travel safe.
