Day 1

First Steps to Radiant Health: Embracing Costa Rica's Rhythms of Renewal and Nourishment

Your journey to vibrant living commences. From the moment you touch down in Costa Rica, the tropical breeze carries with it a promise of healing, growth, and authenticity. As you are seamlessly whisked away in a group transfer, feel the energy of the jungle beckon, guiding you to the heart of La Fortuna and the sanctuary of Finca Luna Nueva Lodge. Nestled amidst the verdant embrace of nature, this lodge is a beautiful paradise where every trail and every turn unravels nature’s wisdom.

Take a moment to settle in, letting the rhythmic pulse of the rainforest cocoon you. With your fellow retreat companions, you will form bonds throughout this transformative journey, and this starts now! Guided by Janine's spirit, the evening unfolds into a dance of body, mind, and breath with our first yoga session at the yoga shala. Breathe deep and share in this tranquil moment, letting go of burdens and starting afresh. And as night arrives, we'll gather for a beautiful welcome dinner — our first meal as a group. Savor the delicate flavors of farm-to-table dishes, each bite imbued with the magic of Costa Rica's rich soil, the epitome of real food, and the joy of slow living. Tonight, in the heart of the jungle, your journey to radiant health, empowerment, and the profound magic of life truly begins.

Day 2

Connect with the Planet Amidst the Song of Nature

Early morning birdsong heralds a new dawn, calling you to begin the day with a harmonious session of hatha yoga and breathwork. Under Janine's watchful guidance, each pose becomes a dance of energy and strength, aligning your spirit with the natural rhythm of the surrounding jungle. As you breathe deeply, the air, filled with the scents of the tropics, nourishes your soul, ensuring each stretch clears your mind and strengthens your core. Once your session concludes, the enticing aroma of a nourishing breakfast beckons. Plated with love, each morsel resonates with Costa Rica’s natural bounty, ensuring you are fueled for the day ahead.

As the sun climbs higher, those intrigued by the process of harvesting food from the Earth are invited to join a farm tour. Here, you'll get to learn the how our natural resources are cultivated and transformed into the wonderful foods we enjoy. This enlightening experience seamlessly flows into a lunch, where farm-to-table offerings invigorate both body and soul.

As the sun begins to set, the gentle ambiance of yin yoga and yoga nidra envelops you once again, centering your thoughts and rejuvenating your spirit. As stars adorn the sky, we'll gather for dinner — let laughter, stories, and the symphony of the rainforest combine to create precious memories with newfound friends.

Day 3

In Between Sessions of Yoga, Relish in Authentic Earth-Harvested Meals and Enjoy a Well-Deserved Massage

As light pierces through the lush canopy, rise and gather for a morning yoga session led by Janine. By partaking in this intimate dance of energy and strength amidst nature, each pose and breath becomes a testament to your commitment to harnessing the power of balance, resonating deeply with the pulse of the land that surrounds you. Once you complete this session, a wholesome breakfast awaits. Every bite, a celebration of authentic food from the Earth, ignites a deeper appreciation for the rich tapestry of nature's bounty, nurtured with love and harvested with care.

As noon approaches, enjoy some free time to relax, explore, and play. A sumptuous lunch follows, offering you another chance to revel in the authenticity of nature’s offerings.

The afternoon then comes to a pause — a soothing massage that kneads away the world, immersing you in a cocoon of relaxation and rejuvenation. Finally, as dusk paints the sky, evening yoga transports you to a space that allows you to reflect and rejuvenate before a delicious dinner. Finally, a night hike concludes the day, giving you insight into how the environment changes once the sun sets.

Day 4

Celebrating the Unity of Body and Spirit: Empowerment Through the Spoils of Nature

Rise and shine! The day dawns with the promise of deep connection — a union of body, mind, and breath. As the sun's rays pierce the dense jungle canopy, you are beckoned to the mat for a morning session of hatha yoga and breathwork. Under Janine's gentle guidance, allow each posture to promote vitality. The rhythmic cadence of your breath harmonizes with the whispering leaves and insect calls, weaving a tapestry of tranquility that rejuvenates your very essence. Following this invigorating session, the dining area awaits with a spread of wholesome breakfast.

Mid-day unfurls a delightful tapestry with a Food for Life Nutrition Essentials workshop. Although optional, this class is included in the price, making it an amazing opportunity to learn transformative knowledge. The class itself is based on the Physicians Committee's 21-Day Vegan Kickstart book, and it promotes a low-fat, plant-based diet grounded in science. You'll leave the class with healthy menu ideas, weekly menu planning guides, suggested plant-based recipe substitutions, and a variety of other tools that will help you keep your diet on track and foster a life of vibrant longevity. After lunch, you will have a wealth of free time that you can use to book off-site tours if you so wish. Options include ziplining, lake kayaking, paddle boarding, a tour of the famous Arenal Hanging Bridges, or even a visit to some hot springs. (Optional activities not included in price and must be booked separately.)

The evening brings another yoga session, offering solace and a profound reconnection with the inner self. The day concludes with a delightful dinner where flavors and shared experiences remind you of the infinite possibilities that arise when you are in good company.

Day 5

Journey Homeward

We've come to the final day of this wellness retreat in Costa Rica — we hope you've had a beautiful time with Janine, discovering nature's bounty and taking on the foundation you need to lead a more active and nourishing lifestyle. Enjoy one last breakfast as a group before it's time to depart. After our heartfelt farewells and check-out, the path will lead you back to the airport, carrying with you a tapestry of memories, wisdom, and a rejuvenated spirit. Until our souls converge once more, travel with the blessings of the jungle and the warmth of our shared experience. Safe travels!
