  • Nancy Baird

    Nancy Baird moved several places around the US before landing in Chicago in 2013. Living a stressed out, over worked life from her corporate retail management job, a personal tragedy caused her to reassess her life and how she was living shortly after arriving in Chicago. She saw the difference it was making in her body, mind and spirit. She did a 200 hour yoga teacher training certification and completed an extended Power Yoga training program and traveled to Costa Rica to live for four months.

  • Karla Huffman

    Karla has been a competitive swimmer for 15 years. She gave yoga a try and began her journey. She did not like her first yoga class- it made her body feel strange and she had no understanding of the movements or the language. She decided to keep taking more classes because she wanted to explore and attempt to understand these strange sensations. She later moved back to Chicago, to pursue yoga and do a 200 hour Hatha yoga teacher training.

The retreat will be held at the beautiful Peace Retreat resort in Playa Negra, Costa Rica. Its remote location is on the edges of the volcanic black sand beach of Playa Negra, and is the perfect setting to discover inner and outer peace. Surrounded with the vibrant sounds of nature, you will hear birds chirping, howler monkeys calling, and the cooling winds rustling through the trees.

Peace Retreat is a solid location for transformation of the body, mind, and spirit. The uncluttered open space is designed to create comfortable places for you to relax and reflect.
