Dakota and Bridget have been leading retreats at Bodhi Tree since the day they opened to the public in 2014. In 2008 they planted roots in the Nosara community and have spent the last 16 years developing retreat and teacher training experiences to share with the world. In addition to offering iLa® yoga and wellness retreats, they are the directors of the official Bodhi Tree Yoga Teacher Training Program, providing students with life altering teachings during the twice yearly 200 hour intensive programs. Our annual Light Your Life retreat is a carefully crafted week of experiences based off what we have found to be, the “good stuff”. The pace, practices, and teachings throughout retreat week are in alignment with the “Blue Zone” way of life that is present on Nicoya Peninsula, and we provide ample downtime and encouragement to make the best choices for yourself during the week whatever they may be. In addition to our facilitated retreat offerings which can be found in detail on our website, Dakota and Bridget are present throughout the week and all in for good times and good conversation with good people. We hope you’ll join us, we can’t wait.
