It’s been called SO MUCH MORE THAN A YOGA RETREAT….
” Enjoying fellowship with other women. This happened right from the very first evening at the hotel in Alajuela as we were all gathering in the lobby to meet for supper. I didn’t know a soul but felt so included right away. During the entire week I never once felt like I was on my own. In fact, quite the opposite; I felt so much love and care and compassion from a bunch of very amazing women. What an awesome group of powerful, inspiring examples of kindness. My heart is full of gratitude. “
Donna, Nova Scotia
“ Four times in my first week back was I asked how I had all of a sudden become so peaceful.I had never had an experience which touched my soul and allowed me such introspection and personal growth without discomfort. The love and support, the beauty and glory was truly magical. As a busy professional with three children, this trip recharged me and helped me find peace. I cannot say enough about the teachers and hosts who allowed ALL our activities to be smooth as silk! IT was amazing and I recommend it without reservation.”

Lead Facilitator – Catherine Hull
Catherine has been a student of wellness and spirituality since her early years and has witnessed the power of self-healing tools like meditation and energy therapy in her life through overcoming addiction, pain, emotional issues, and low self-worth. Her own personal journey of learning to heal and love herself has led her to work with others over more than a decade to help raise the level of love and consciousness on the planet. Catherine approaches health from a wholistic view of body, mind, and soul working together and empowers others to remember that they have the power to heal themselves from within.
Catherine is a self-care & empowerment advocate, coach, and energy healer, as well as a co-founder of The Peace Room Modern Meditation Studio in Ottawa. She has led dozens of retreats and workshops and is especially fond of this retreat in Costa Rica where she will be returning with a group of amazing teachers and participants for the 4th year. Costa Rica is the place where her soul feels most at home and she is passionate about sharing this special space with others because she knows the powerful transformation that it offers.
Guest Teacher – Jasmine Moore
For 7 years Jasmine has been developing skills to help others reach their highest potential with their physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. She does this through personal training, energy therapy, and teaching meditation practices. Her life purpose has remained consistent in helping others in the best way that she can, which is why her practice is continuously changing. Starting off in science and research and then competing in bodybuilding, her practice has evolved to a softer and more intuitive approach.
With her own practice and experience coaching others in the gym, Jasmine has recognized that there is much more than the physical body to be focused on. This realization has allowed her to develop a practice that helps clients overcome plateaus on the mental, emotional and spiritual level. She achieves this by pairing mindful movement in the gym with energy therapy and meditation practices.
This is Jasmine’s 2nd year co-facilitating with Catherine in Costa Rica and she teaches us that “when we move with conscious intention, we can move our mind, body, and spirit to new levels of joy and confidence.”
Guest Teacher – Victoria Lemon
Full-time government employee, part-time meditation teacher, energy healer, and personal trainer, Vicki is passionate about helping people discover balance in their mind, body and soul.
She knows how because she’s done it for herself. After years of living the way she felt she was “supposed” to, but not quite feeling fulfilled, Vicki was introduced to energy therapy and meditation and through them has summoned the courage to step into her life’s purpose.Forever in search of an adventure, from trekking in the Himalayas, to climbing in the Rockies, this Maritime girl feels most at home in the mountains. And, as an alumna of last year’s mountain retreat in Costa Rica, she knows how transformational this retreat can be. She can’t wait to support you on your journey.
Guest Teacher – Amber Smith
Sound is a powerful tool for working with the human body on many levels. People often come away from sound healing sessions speaking of inner shifts, deep relaxation, transcendent states, healing and new realizations. Sound can help transform and clear old patterns. Experience more connection to self and harmony with your world in Amber’s group workshops, meditations and sound baths.
Amber grew up studying music and holds a diploma in Audio Engineering. For over a decade she worked in the music industry while her yoga practice and meditation helped her cope with re-occuring anxiety. Through her practice, she realized that a deep unrest stemmed from living out of alignment with her truest nature. She was called to create spaces for rest, re-connection, healing, harmony and creativity. Amber focuses her practice where Science, Spirituality and Creativity intersect. A certified Meditation Teacher and Sound Healer, she is passionate about nature, music, the study of spiritual traditions and sacred spaces. Her sessions are infused with a deep sense of loving kindness and reverence for the divine in each of us.
“I’ve travelled a lot and I can say that this was the most enriching experience. I felt at ease, relaxed and present in every moment. This was the best gift I have ever given myself.”
