If you love to move, teach movement, and are curious about how bodies move better- YOU are a BodyNerd and this Retreat is for you!

East and West Coast studio owners, Ilana Siegal and Staci Curry have come together to create the dream retreat they would want to be on.  When these two get together, they bounce off each other with body questions, curious exploration, recent studies, pin-pointed exercises for specific goals, assessment techniques, irreverent commentary, laughter, big dreams, and fun!  This is a no judgment zone for what we do and what we feel we “should already know.”

Whether you are a fitness fan, fitness professional or someone looking for an informative and rejuvenating experience this retreat will satisfy all. There is space for you to be a student, to teach (if you want to), to go deep into what’s going on with your body. There will be plenty of time to integrate and workshop your methods with like-minded individuals, and much more time to explore or do nothing.  We intend for you to leave refreshed, inspired to move in new ways, teach what you are passionate about, and feel connected to yourself and others.

As a bonus for all of you Registered Yoga Teacher professionals, this retreat fulfills 31 Hours of CE Credit. So come, explore, workshop and continue your education with other professionals and students in the lush jungles and sandy beaches of the Nosara, Costa Rica coast!

“The people—the women (and man) that attended made the trip like being on vacation with my 20+ best friends. And Ilana’s treating all of us the same, even when we weren’t from GB. She made us feel so welcome and included. And her approach to applying what we learned in the activities, e.g. zipline and surfing, to our yoga practice was a nice touch.”
