The Healing Force of Nature

Cahuita, Costa Rica, Central America

All of our facilities are in the middle of a centenary forest, allowing our guests to benefit from the healing power of nature. The yoga studios and ceremony space are surrounded by plants, wildlife and jungle trees, including the Goddess Tree, which is over 360 years old. During your practice, the healing energy of nature deeply relaxes the body, rejuvenates the aura, and supports the flow of life energy. We feel, as many others who have attended retreats here, that our spiritual practice reaches a higher level in this special energetic place.

From the property, a 5 minutes walk leads you to a pristine beach 10 miles long. The only human presence you will likely find is yourself and your mates. Many guests love doing their morning meditation on the beach, benefiting from the sunrise and the relaxing sounds of the waves.

About the retreat leader

Shira Brenner



I believe yoga is one of the greatest healing resources we have and a consistent practice has saved me during the darkest of days. Join me with an open mind and a willingness to meet yourself where you are at.  I love this practice because it gives me a way to reel in my overactive brain. It cultivates the physical strength to keep me on the path to feeling balanced. Bringing attention to my breath allows me to create space between my rapidly firing thoughts and shift my perspective in a positive way. It is only recently that I have discovered the magic that space creates. Over the years, this creation of space has given me the awareness to evaluate how I live, what I say, and how I treat others. Most importantly, getting on my mat reminds me to accept myself as I am everyday and remember that I am just a tiny part of the bigger picture. It humbles me. It makes me smile. It helps me reconnect to exactly who I came here to be.  Private yoga, guided meditation and breath-work makes the human heart sing with joy! Contact me for your special events, gatherings or private sessions.


As someone who has overcome serious body image and health struggles, I have used dance as a tool for emotional well-being and hope to inspire others to do the same. I am done dancing for others. When you take class with me, you dance not to be seen by the observer’s eye, but instead to connect to your deepest, realest, truest self. Dance is a tool for self expression, self-love, and freedom of spirit.
