Costa Rica is calling

The Powerful Woman Yoga Retreat

February 25 - March 4, 2023


Intentional Living

You’re away from the busyness of life, it's the perfect time to reflect and create new intentions. Intentions that empower you to live a healthy long life that fills you with purpose and joy.


Relaxing by the pool or ocean, yoga and meditation, eating well, and connecting with an amazing group of women at our own private retreat property - blissful.

Nestled on top of a quiet ridge in the coastal oasis of Playa Pelada, a unique surf town known for its laid-back vibe and beautiful beaches. This exclusive space in the jungle with stunning ocean vistas allows you to immerse yourself in nature.


Whether you’re at the start of your yoga journey or have been practicing with me for a while, this is an opportunity to truly immerse yourself in a daily rhythm of self-care surrounded by nature. Dive into the experience of reconnecting with yourself and how fabulous it feels.


You'll be deeply nourished—with a lovingly designed plant-based menu. Our private chef uses primarily locally sourced and organic food for a very special culinary experience.
 Join the twice-daily yoga sessions that will leave your body and mind feeling nurtured, refreshed and grounded. Add in some excursions, relaxing by the pool, and cultivating heartfelt friendships along the way for a life-affirming week.

I can’t wait to share this adventure with you.

Join me in Noasa, Costa Rica at Casa Kismet

February 25 - March 4, 2023

I first visited Nosara 10 years ago. I knew I had found my 'happy place'. Since then, I've returned numerous times with friends and family, and each experience has renewed my love for the culture, country and people.

The Nosara area has it all. Beautiful beach sunsets, a thriving yoga community, howler monkeys everywhere, the most relaxed vibe you'll ever experience, and did I mention the FOOD? 😋


Our retreat is surrounded by mature jungle and is a short walk from the world-class surfing beaches of Playa Pelada. This is truly the ideal spot to renew, relax and reconnect.

Get ready to shine, from inside and out. Create an energized, more powerful, more amazing YOU.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Airport Should I Fly Into?

Highly recommend you fly into Liberia International Airport as it is 2.5-hour drive to Casas Kismet. You can fly into San Jose, however, the drive will be 4.5-5 hours from the airport.  

Will I Be Able To Wash My Clothes? Do I Need To Bring A Beach/Pool Towel?

Laundry service is available for $10 a load. Beach and Pool towels are provided by Casas Kismet.  

Do I Need To Do A Currency Exchange?

Pretty much everywhere you go will accept credit cards and Dollars. You will get Colones (Costa Rica money) in change when you use cash. We recommend bringing smaller bills (more 10’s and 5’s, fewer 20’s) for things around town. Excursions will most likely require cash, save your larger bills for these. 

Where Do I Keep My VALUABLES Safe?

In-room safes are available at Casas Kismet. Do not take valuables to the beach unless someone can stay with them. Put your passport away in a safe place when you arrive at Casas Kismet. It’s a great idea to take a photo of your passport in case of an emergency.

Casas Kismet is a 10-minute walk to the beaches of Playa Pelada. It is a 20-minute walk to La Luna Restaurant and a lovely 30-minute walk to North Guiones Beach. Tuk-Tuks are available for inexpensive transportation and can pick you up from Casas Kismet. Car rentals are available in both Liberia and Nosara. ATVs and golf carts are also available for rent around town for day and week rates.
