Reclaim your freedom and embrace the powerful energy of the new year as we collectively envision our highest good for 2025 with seven days of yoga, adventure, and deep relaxation. Join me for this unique retreat where you will enjoy the benefits of being a part of an intimate group that allows me to lavish you with wonderfully individualized attention. Space is limited, so please register early as this retreat will sell out. Immerse yourself in the magical landscape of Costa Rica with its beautiful beaches and lush forests. Pamper your body with spa treatments, farm-to-table food, and yoga twice per day. Explore your adventurous side: ride a horse on the beach, zipline through the Costa Rican forest (the longest canopy tour in the world!), learn to surf, take a wildlife + birding kayaking tour, go paddleboarding amongst the mangroves, explore the environs on an ATV, or bike into town where you can visit charming local shops and cafes. Then find balance lounging by the Pacific Ocean, enjoying spa services, soaking in the saltwater pool, or, of course, relaxing while sipping on a fresh coconut. Deepen your yoga practice with invigorating classes in the morning and gentle practices each evening. Throughout this revitalizing trip, you will learn to balance grounding with enlightening, doing with undoing, relaxing with energizing, and centering with expanding. With Alie’s signature precise and enlightening style of teaching, together we will explore and visualize our deepest desires for 2025. We will use meditation, essential breath work, creative pose variations, joy, and indiscriminate curiosity to experience our natural state of peace and, ultimately, find freedom.
