with Kelly Lindsey and Camilla Figueroa in Costa Rica

SOLD OUT! Please email Kelly if you are interested in being put on a waitlist (kellyannlindsey @ gmail)

Join Kelly Lindsey and Camilla Figueroa for a nourishing and invigorating week at Blue Spirit, one of the foremost world-class yoga and meditation retreat centers in Costa Rica. Perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach– Blue Spirit offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting for a deeply nourishing and unforgettable retreat experience.

We chose this lush tropical setting for many reasons including its unique healing energies, spectacular yoga halls, fresh and organic cuisine, on site holistic spa, infinity salt water pool and direct access to a quiet warm beach cove for swimming.

Each morning, Kelly will guide you through a morning meditation practice and Camilla will offer a healing yoga journey, both designed to regulate your nervous system and guide you into a deep, embodied experience of soul and soma. During this retreat you will feel the vibrancy of your body, the inspiration of community, and the healing magic of Blue Spirit.

ABOUT COSTA RICA
While it may seem remote, Costa Rica is easily accessible from the United States and Canada. Costa Rica has not only become known for its spectacular nature, bio-diversity, and ecological tourism, but also as a country whose values reflect many of the ideals embraced by those of us interested in world peace, environmental preservation, excellent education, and a high standard of health care. It is unique in Central America as it has the longest uninterrupted democracy, no standing army in more than 50 years, and a 95% literacy rate.

Blue Spirit lives in one of the world’s five Blue Zones®: Nosara, on the Nicoya Peninsula. Blue Zones® are recognized areas where people live the longest and report the highest levels of wellbeing.

ABOUT NOSARA
In the last 10-years Nosara has grown quietly into one of the hip holistic hot-spots on the planet. Nestled along the coast with 3 unspoiled stunning beaches protected as a turtle refuge – Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada, and Playa Nosara – this peaceful and vibrant international community of nature lovers, surfers, yogis, and families truly embraces the Costa Rican ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle.
