We are beyond excited today because we have some really amazing news to share! Our news is so exciting, it’s three-part:

  1. We’re offering a brand new retreat! The boho-chic, beachfront Casa Cecilia in Costa Rica is the newest addition to our roster of dream destinations. The retreat page is hot off the press — aka it’s literally just been added to our website. This location is to die for! Waterfalls, howler monkeys, beachfront location, fresh pressed juices, smoothies, Aruveyda cooking techniques…need I say more?!
  2. Yoga Bound (one of our all-time favorite studios) is teaming up with us to lead this Casa Cecilia, Costa Rica tropical wellness retreat March 12-18, 2015.
  3. Since we’re over the moon (super moon??!), we’re offering up a promo! Save $500 when you reserve a double or group suite when you book by Sept. 1!

Are you as excited as we are?!


Now that we’ve told you a little bit about where we’re going, let’s get into who is coming! That’s the most important part after all, right? The girls of Yoga Bound are California cool and all about their community. They love to host events, community cleanses and really encourage making yoga available to everyone open to a lifestyle of happiness and health.
