The approach

The program is specifically designed to support participants with eating disorders develop the ability to connect, find purpose, and take action through intention. The integrated therapeutic approach is intended to promote healing through embodied learning on all levels of your being. Peace Retreat Costa Rica shares Ayurveda (physical), yoga therapy (emotional), and human potential (cognitive) models and practices which, together, has the ability to lead to lasting recovery.

Peace Retreat Costa Rica will meet you where you're at and, from there, support you in uncovering the possibility that exists for you, your relationships, and your life. Through body sensation awareness, increased safety in the body, and skills of acceptance and re-association, the program provides you with actionable steps and sustainable self-regulating practices that can cultivate an essential tool to support your eating disorder: choice. And choice means freedom.

Yoga therapy

Therapeutic yoga practices can be powerful windows to your inner wisdom. The part of yourself that knows the truth of who you really are. Engage in sensory experiences that'll shift your awareness from "thinking about" to "embodying new ways of thinking".

These practices have been shown to help manage anxiety, create new neural pathways, experience the present moment fully, free yourself of critical thinking, and empower yourself with the ability to self-regulate at any given moment.


Ayurveda views the mind as an inseparable aspect of the body, which is now well-documented and supported by neurobiologists. Through the science of life, you’ll implement practices that have consistently shown to reduce cortisol levels (stress), and increase immunity, bone density, and muscle tissue. You’ll get to know yourself deeply and discover the beauty of your unique differences, which gives rise to the realization that there is nothing to "fix".

As your ability to sleep, digest, relax, handle stress, and tolerate emotion increases, you’ll begin to comprehend the importance of nourishing, not only your physical body, but your relationships, knowledge, and your ability to care for yourself and others as well.

Human potential

Untangling the intimate relationship to yourself and others is imperative to understanding the struggle with eating disorders. Learn a well-defined approach through which you’ll begin to understand the nature of suffering and your relationship to it. Peace Retreat Costa Rica believes suffering is an essential part of life that, when arises, is looking to be understood, cared for, and nourished. Only then can you uncover the fundamental question for all humans, not just those with eating disorders, "For what are we really hungering?"

Retreat location

The intention in the creation of Peace Retreat was to set up a sustainable environment centered around yoga where guests can reset, recharge, and realign to reconnect with their supreme self and access peace. Its remote location in the jungle of Playa Negra is the perfect setting to discover inner and outer peace. Surrounded by the hum of nature, you will hear birds chirping, howler monkeys calling, and the cooling winds rustling through the trees throughout your stay.

Peace Retreat is a freeing, supportive location ideal for transformation of the body, mind, and spirit. The uncluttered open space is designed to create comfortable places for you to relax and reflect. As you explore beyond the mantra-adorned surfaces of Peace Retreat and venture into the town of Playa Negra, you will meet vibrant locals, travelers and surfers alike. The small size of the community creates a welcoming environment through which you’ll quickly get to know familiar faces in any length of stay.
