In this retreat, you will be staying for 1 night at a hotel in San Jose and followed by 7 nights at the Goddess Garden Eco Resort on the Caribbean Coast. The Goddess Garden features clean and beautifully decorated rooms. The practice space is a stunning veranda overlooking the jungle.

Last year, howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, and a variety of exotic birds and butterflies within the center’s grounds were seen (and some were heard). The resort features a pool, Jacuzzi, hammocks to lounge in, a wall-less dining hall, and common area featuring Wi-Fi.

With twice daily sessions of yoga and meditation, delicious fresh, organic meals, and an abundance of life and beauty surrounding you, this special retreat is an opportunity to step away from distraction in your life and be held in the ease of retreat living.

For the practices, Fannie Hungerford will use the tools of asana and meditation practice, chanting, community, writing, ritual, and relaxation to illuminate the path to the life you want in the coming year in this program.

    "Fannie Is a truly exceptional teacher and individual. She is inspirational in explaining her teachings in class and does so with knowledge, humility, and humor. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to go deeper within their own inner work and journey of one’s self-knowledge, which reveals our true essence and light."

    "By practicing with her in the style of ParaYoga, I’m manifesting my goals more quickly, living with more joy and contentment, with a greater sense of abundance, and with greater peace and equanimity in my relationships. These are the benefits of ParaYoga. "

  • Review by Allyson Malandra

    "Fannie has been my yoga teacher and mentor for the past three years. When I first came to her classes, despite having practiced yoga at a few other places in the past, I was certainly still within the beginner realm. Feeling timid of a new class and a new teacher (as most people are), I was pleasantly surprised to feel so welcomed and connected to her class from the very first practice. Since that time, I have been a devoted student of Fannie’s, and my practice has grown in so many ways, anywhere from Pranayama to Psana to daily meditation, and I have Fannie’s guiding light to thank for that. Her ability to take anyone, no matter what your level or experience, on a spiritual journey in her classes is what truly makes her teaching so special. She is able to take yoga further than just some postures, breath, and movements, and create something that is a deeper experience, something that speaks to your soul and your own life path. Her classes are the most gratifying, connected, and blissful practices that I have ever witnessed. For those 90 minutes, your practice can take you to another place. Fannie has a very special and unique gift of being able to share yoga in a way no one else ever has for me and I have pure gratitude to have shared it."
