You will connect with the elements and your senses in new ways that will leave you feeling grounded and ready to take action, with a clear mind, and a happy heart for the year ahead. 

We invite you to join us in paradise, as we immerse each day in the elements of Water, Air, Earth, and Fire in the Nosara jungle. This special retreat has been curated to both ignite your passion and zest for life, as well as nourish and restore your soul at the deepest levels. This delightful combination of Yin and Yang options, as well as the guidance of two experienced teachers, will create the ideal conditions for rejuvenation, transformation, inspiration, and the essence of “Pura Vida (pure life or simple life)”.

To begin your days, the morning yoga classes will provide opportunities to ignite your inner spark! These will be more active, Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Mobility or a combination. All classes will be accessible to all levels. These morning classes will also always end with sublime relaxation and/or meditation. Our evening practices are more nourishing, Yin with some Restorative, and/or Yoga Nidra too. Each day, we will have an elemental theme (water, air, earth, fire) that the day’s practices.

In between our morning and evening yoga sessions, we will fill our days with things that bring us joy. Choose between sun and sea, adventure, exploring, experiencing the culture, or a good book. All while just “being” and soaking in the elements of the simple life. Fill your days as you please, there is no pressure to join planned classes and workshops. The space and time are there for you to connect and rewild with your true nature.

This retreat was spectacular. The entire adventure was very well organized and plenty of time to restore and explore with free time. The jungle was oceanside and an experience I will never forget. The flora and fauna was something truly to behold. Waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the jungle and waves is forever imprinted on my heart and soul.

FREQUENTLY ASKED 

Questions

DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?

WHAT IF I'M TRAVELING SOLO?

No problem! Donna will match you with a compatible solo traveler with whom you are comfortable. Prefer a private space? Private accommodations may be available at additional cost.  

I cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. Travel and medical insurance are both highly recommended. Most health insurance companies will not cover out of country expenses. 

I have used Allianz Travel Insurance for both domestic and international insurance. Another option for price comparison is Travel Insurance. Ask questions and do research to find the best option for you.

WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT TERMS & CANCELLATION POLICY?

A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $500 (+ $35 processing fee) SAVES YOUR SPOT.

 

50% of your retreat remaining balance due by August 15, 2024. Final payment due by December 15, 2024. If booking after one or both payment dates, payment due within 5 days of booking. Payment amount will depend on retreat start date. Payments can be check or cash. You can Venmo Donna too. Connect with Donna for this option.

 

Credit card payments are available. A 3% transaction fee applies. All payments are final.

 

Due to our commitment to the property and their policies,we cannot offer any refunds, transfers, or credits for cancellations for any reason (including legitimate ones like illness, injury, family deaths, or other emergencies. Full guidelines under terms and conditions.

Need payment flexibility? Flexible payment option includes; making smaller more frequent payments. Email Donna at dragonflyretreatsgb@gmail.com

ANY THOUGHTS ON JOINING A RETREAT BY MYSELF IF I'VE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE?

WHAT IF I HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

I went on my first ever retreat knowing no one except for the retreat leader and had the most incredible experience. I loved having the space to meet new people and also spend quality time with myself in whatever way felt nourishing moment to moment. I was placed in a shared room with another woman who started as a kind stranger and quickly became a close friend by the end of the retreat. If you’re feeling called, I can’t recommend a solo experience enough!

AIRLINE +FLIGHT INFO AND TIPS:

You will fly into Liberia. This is the closest airport to our venue. The airport code is LIR. Group transfer from the airport to our venue will leave at 12:00 pm on 1/25/25. Arrive early enough to get through customs. In most instances it takes 1-2 hours. Book your return flight after 12:00 pm on 2/1/25. If you miss the group transfer you will need to arrange and pay for your own transfer.

Note for flight cost savings/alternative:  You could check flights into San Jose (SJO) from your origin and book a second flight on Sansa Airlines from SJO to LIR (Liberia).

Spend some time researching flight costs to consider into your overall budget.

You bet! Aside from our 2-3 daily practices, the rest of the day can be spent however your heart desires.

With over 2000 registered teaching and retreat hours, I enjoy teaching Vinyasa, Restorative/Yin and Meditation class styles. I have a passion for bringing women together for friendship and connection. Join me for an incredible week of connecting, laughter, fun and leaning into going with the flow (this is more than what it may sound like-join me to find out more!) as you unwind, unplug, reset, and enjoy everything this jungle paradise has to offer. 

In a world filled with distractions and demands, yoga and mindfulness are great ways to hit pause, pay attention and return to the present moment by focusing on what is directly in front of us. The only moment that exists. With journal workshops sprinkled in our time together you may find it easy to get clear on what is important for you to create in your life and sink into your new year intentions.  

In addition to leading retreats Internationally and in the US, I own a yoga studio in WI, am a Reiki Master, Astrologer, lead private events for local businesses and teach weekly classes.
