Farm of Life Yoga Retreat Costa Rica Program

You will leave this wellness retreat inspired and motivated to take better care of your health after hearing Dr. Sam speak about raw food nutrition, exercise and fitness, optimizing the healing response, injury prevention, anti-aging, breathing, meditation and vibrational health, and spiritual enlightenment. Dr. Sam will share his raw-habilitation system of health and healing that has been used to help thousands of people transform their health.

You will experience a fun and relaxed learning atmosphere. Health and healing concepts from his books and products will be adequately addressed. During this wellness retreat, you will join others in group exercise sessions that will be aimed at improving movement, restoring flexibility and posture, toning muscle, especially your glutes and abs, and fixing body imbalances that can help you prevent common injuries.

These sessions will not only help you feel much better. They will also help to prepare you for some of the more challenging eco-adventures and other fun activities you may choose to participate in, including dancing, yoga, chanting and singing, playing games, taking time to relax, reflect, meditate, and sharing your thoughts and feelings as desired. Who knows? You might even learn how to fly!
