Yoga & Running Retreat
Playa Azul / Guanacaste
With Irena & Andrea
Our first retreat is taking place at The Azul Ocean Club, a beach front Boutique Hotel, situated at Playa Azul, a heavenly location on the Guanacaste coast of Costa Rica, in on one of the world’s 5 blue zones.
Around the property and our small town of Marbella there are plenty of dirty roads suitable for running. Trails are combinations of beach & hills or only hill trails with bigger elevation.

Ashtanga Yoga Getaway, Costa Rica
Azul Ocean Club
yourself waking up to the singing of tropical birds and falling asleep to ocean waves crashing.
Starting your day with a meditation and Ashtanga yoga practice, and end it up with the mesmerising beauty of pink sunsets and sandy beaches.
Nurture your bodies with delicious farm to table vegetarian food and massages.
For most of us these uncertain times are challenging. Now more then ever it is crucial to give yourself time for self care. Time to reconnect with nature, and our roots. To retreat and restore in a safe environment, in sync with the Mother Earth, and ourselves.
In partnership with The Azul Ocean Club, I have created an escape on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica for 7 nights and 8 days, to do just this.
Our days will start with meditation and pranayama practice, followed by traditional Ashtanga Mysore and led classes.
We will offer a rolling schedule of afternoon events, that include further exploring our yoga practice and delving deeper into the body, free beach and relaxation time, or an evening of traditional Temazcal sweat lodge ceremony or Sound healing for those who want to try it.
Moon sisters retreat, Costa Rica
Azul Ocean Club
With Irena & Paula
Our Moon sisters retreat is created with the idea to nurture, celebrate and create sacred space for women, reconnecting them as a sisters in all of their beauty.
It is a sacred time away from jobs, obligations and responsibilities where women can get together, enjoy daily meditation and yoga classes, dance, massages and share stories and their wisdom. It is a time for us to be pampered, nurtured and connect with Mother Nature and the Moon feminine energies.
Mysore Weekend / Atenas, Costa Rica
El Santuario Yoga Center
Join us in stunning Atenas for a weekend of meditation, traditional Ashtanga yoga practice, delicious vegetarian food, stunning sunsets and hikes in the pristine nature.
We will be staying at the spacious Villa with spectacular views. Bedrooms are with private bathrooms, AC and community swimming pool overlooking coffee plantations. Our in house chef will be preparing for us healthy vegetarian meals.
We will start our mornings with meditation followed by traditional Ashtanga Yoga Practice.
After breakfast, there is a free time to explore waterfalls, coffee plantations or just to chill at the pool.
We will be ending our day by sitting together and practicing mindfulness.
The picturesque town of Atenas is surrounded by rolling green hills, speckled with rows of coffee plants and sugarcane.
A couple of things that make Atenas noteworthy are its climate and coffee. The town is said to have one of the best climates in the world, with average temperatures in the mid-70s°F (21°C) year-round. The climate, combined with the area’s rich volcanic soil, also makes Atenas an excellent spot for growing coffee. Many of the local producers are small, family-run operations Interestingly, Atenas was located along the original oxcart trail. This route was used in the late 1800s to transport coffee beans from the Central Valley to ports on the Pacific and Caribbean coasts for export. Various references to the oxcart trail can be seen around town.
Female Finances / Journey to Financial Freedom
8/ 15/ 22 August
Would you like to gain a clear understanding of how your emotional subconscious relationship towards money:
- impacts your current financial situation?
- learn how to gain control over your finances and
- receive a toolbox of knowledge and tactics that will support you to be fully ready to step into the drivers seat of your finances ?
This workshop will guide you towards independence and control, so you can be the queen of your own empire.
Our relationship with money is a very complex data system that is hugely influenced by our emotions, behaviours and beliefs. Money and psychology are working together and can fuel each other in positive way.
I co-created this course with Dr. Evelyne Meier, with the goal to empower you to break through your psychological patters and habits, and support you on your path towards financial independence.
