Have you ever taken a trip that's just for you? It wasn't until a few years ago that I started taking my hard-earned time off very seriously. Not only did these just-for-me trips remove the seasonal stress residue that had built up in my life but upon my return my life took a new direction. I'm not exaggerating.
Every time I take a trip that's just for me, I come back renewed and re-energized, with focus and ferocity to a) get out of an unhealthy relationship (that I didn't realize was horrible) b) execute my exit plan from my sh*tty job (that I didn't notice was killing me) or c) redesign my entire business with total clarity (that I was too blinded to see beforehand.)
These experiences of escape and renewal are so critical to continue learning, growing and changing.
There's something magical about them. They will get you out of feeling stuck in any area of life and push you forward. What would you want out of getaway that's JUST FOR YOU?
Our next retreat to Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica is coming soon October 30th - November 4th and there are still spaces available if you're ready to have an experience that will change you. There is a lot of information and details here on Facebook or here on Circle Yoga's website all about the trip and here are seven things the website won't tell you (but I want you to know.)
1. Pranamar is the nicest place in town.
Whenever you mention Pranamar to anyone who lives in Santa Teresa, they respond with an "Ohhhh! I LOVE Pranamar!" They've got beautiful accommodations, a fresh-water pool and the best yoga pavilion in town. Check out the pics.
2. You can do whatever you want.
We'll offer you twice daily classes and the rest is up to you. Take the R&R route, get massages and walk the beaches all day or be an adventure junkie with surf lessons, waterfall hikes and stand up paddleboarding. Show up to classes or don't - it's your retreat!
3. Yes, you can drink.
Funnily enough, people have been asking this one a lot. Yes, Pranamar has a bar and there are stores nearby where you can buy your own and bring home or other local bars to visit. No, this retreat is not a nutritional detox, cleanse or fast - unless you want to make it one.
4. You're invited to my 36th birthday party.
I'll be having a birthday party on the evening of our last day, November 4th in case you want to stick around an extra night - the more the merrier!
5. You can visit "The Tree".
Seriously, it's very cool.
6. You really don't have to know any yoga beforehand.
Of the people already registered, there is a wide variety of experiences with yoga. Classes are designed for EVERYONE, no matter what your level or ability.
7. You will experienced an unexpected and welcome shift in your life.
