Farm of Life Yoga Retreat Costa Rica Program

Lacey understands the intimate connection between body, mind, and spirit. This Spring retreat will reflect her holistic approach. You will join in daily practices that encourage movement, relaxation, reflection, and connecting with your true self as well as embarking on adventures to nearby waterfalls and beaches. Some of the retreat highlights include an authentic cacao ceremony with ecstatic dance as well as a visit to an off grid jungle sanctuary.

Spring is the perfect time to awaken, renew, and cleanse after the winter months. During your stay at Farm of Life, you can do just that. Bask in the high vibrational elements of the farm, feel the nourishing tropical breeze, listen to the symphony of innumerable birds and insects, watch the mesmerising dance of the butterflies, dragonflies, and hummingbirds.

Connect with mother nature and be nurtured by barefoot walking, sun gazing, breathing in fresh mountain air, hiking through the jungle trail, eating off the land, and drinking pure spring water. Gaze at unforgettable sunsets and the mystical, shapeshifting clouds of the approaching rainy season.

Every moment at the farm, everywhere that you look, all that you hear, touch, taste, and smell is an opportunity to experience pure wonderment and awe of this magical slice of paradise. This is your retreat, so feel free to join in as much or as little as you like. Choose from daily yoga and meditation, nearby waterfall, hiking adventures, evening gatherings for setting intentions, and personal sharing, and workshops.
