Stellar Life Coaching Costa Rica Yoga Retreat Program

This Phoenix Retreat is named after the mythical bird that sets itself aflame, then arises new from the ashes. In this program, you will learn how to drop the armor, shed the old skin, and live a more joy-full and authentic life.

The routine of life can, and does, wear you down. Feeling stuck, or not good enough is more common among women than you think. Taking a break from your daily life is necessary to have enough time and space to reflect, heal, and re-align so you can come back into your life with a clear mind and an open heart.

At the Phoenix Retreat, the focus is on you. You will immerse yourself in beautiful new surroundings and connect with other like-minded women who understand where you are and want to support you on your journey. It is not just a get-away; it’s a coming together that will deeply connect you to a community of new friends.

To ensure each Phoenix participant has a deeply transformative experience, Stellar Life Coaching has limited the program to only six participants.

Who should attend

Maybe everything is wrong - the relationship is non-existent or isn’t working, the job is not inspiring, and even though you have people around you still feel alone. Or maybe nothing is necessarily wrong, but you feel disconnected from life. Like despite the fact that you have almost everything you’ve wanted, you are still not happy.

No matter what is going “wrong” in your life, the Phoenix Retreat is ideal for women who want to:

  • Feel purpose driven, passionate, and brave in their lives
  • Feel supported as they walk through a life transition (divorce, career change, etc.)
  • Relax and disconnect from the day to day hustle
  • Learn how to meditate
  • Reconnect with their bodies
  • Get un-stuck and un-uninspired
  • Be connected, engaged, and open in their daily lives

Why the phoenix

We have all heard of the phoenix and how this stunning, colorful bird sets itself on fire, and is born anew from the ashes. Most fascinating about this bird is that it chooses when to set itself on fire.

It is not fearful. It embraces the cycle of birth death and rebirth. For this retreat, a phoenix is the perfect metaphor: when who you have been that is your way thinking, of feeling, of expressing yourself no longer serves you, you must make time and space, you must be willing to embrace the fire in order to rise anew.

Life coaching

The Phoenix Retreat includes more than 24 hours of intensive group and one-on-one coaching. Your Phoenix workbook, journal, and all necessary supplies for the carefully selected activities will be provided to you.

The three-week coaching program starts Saturday, August 12, 2017 and you will meet virtually online as a group until each Saturday before the retreat. In addition, each participant will schedule an hour long one-on-one with their coach each week (three hours total).

The schedule for the pre-retreat coaching is as follow:

Week 1

  • Date: August 12, 2017 at 8:30 p.m. EST to 10:00 p.m. EST
  • Topic: Introductions and setting intentions and expectations

Week 2

  • Date: August 19, 2017 at 08:30 p.m. EST to 10:00 p.m. EST
  • Topic: Owning your story

Week 3

  • Date: August 26, 2017 at 08:30 p.m. EST to 10:00 p.m. EST
  • Topic: Recollections and reflections: the belief cycle

Why the pre-retreat coaching? When Stellar Life Coaching was designing the Phoenix retreat, the feedback they got from a variety of retreat participants across the board was that the first day was often lost because they felt that they were just learning the group dynamics and settling in.

For most retreats that is the case, you do not know who you will be with so the first day is more of a warm up rather than a day of work. The intention for the Phoenix retreat is for it to be intensive and immersive - meaning when everyone sits down for the first time in Costa Rica, Stellar Life Coaching will begin their work. That is why Stellar Life Coaching wants each participant to connect with and understand each other before everybody actually meets.

Yoga and meditation

Novice or a yoga master, you will be invigorated and empowered with the retreat’s yoga and meditation practices. In this weekend, you will have five hours of group yoga and three hours of instructor lead meditation.
