Welcome to an immersion where self-discovery, diverse tradition, and the healing power of nature converge into an extraordinary and rejuvenating experience.
Make yourself a priority. Release into a unique blend of internal practices to melt your mind, soothe your soul and inspire your spirit. Embody your heart’s desire, through rest. Expect to cultivate quiet joy, mudita, a universal quality of the heart.
Combining ancient tools with modern science, take an inner journey that leaves you fortified to flow with grace and ease in our challenging times. Join us for a 5 day immersion into Restorative, Yin, Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra and return to the heart of restful awareness.
What sets this immersion apart is our unwavering commitment to uniting diverse traditions, offering a multidimensional approach that resonates with people from all walks of life. Experience profound inner exploration, expertly guided by Dr. Jackie Ang and Jane Fryer, in an ideal setting for transformation.
Experience both joy and rejuvenation intertwined with the breathtaking Bodhi Tree resort amenities.

The power of this immersion lies in Nosara—the energy of the land, the Pacific Ocean, and the
equator. Nestled upon sacred land, our location serves as a genuine haven for healing, providing a unique opportunity to be cradled by nature. Our work is deeply connected to
the rich history of yoga in Nosara, particularly at the esteemed Nosara Yoga Institute, drawing strength and wisdom from Jane’s extensive experience and pioneering role in shaping the yoga community in Nosara.
Pause, rest, and return to wholeness, stillness and self-connection.

“Our wellbeing is collective. While we are each uniquely impacted by our personal and intergenerational trauma, our return to compassion and the recognition of our wholeness and humanity unfolds when we are held in community.” – Dr. Jackie Ang.
Dr. Jackie Ang is a medical doctor turned group psychotherapist, wellness educator, yoga and meditation instructor.
Her life’s path has been driven by a single question: how do we heal humanity? She holds a medical degree from Queen’s University, certifications in Spiritual Healing and Energy Medicine from the College of International Holistic Studies and over 20 years of study and practice in vajrayana buddhism, vedanta and contemporary mindfulness. Her inquiry on wholeness ultimately crystallized in the field of trauma-informed somatics, sensorimotor psychotherapy, tantra and yoga nidra, where the technology of ancient and modern science meet.
She weaves these threads together in multiple roles: as a group psychotherapist, combining mindfulness meditation, nervous system regulation, somatics, buddhist psychology and radical self-inquiry for the treatment of mental health and stress related disease; as an educator, co-directing Restorative Rhythms + serving on faculty of several 200/300 hour YTTs and as sacred space-holder, facilitating retreats, workshops and immersive experiences for collective awakening and healing.
