5-Day Costa Rican Dance Escape
Dance, disconnect, play, re-energize and explore during this five-day adventure led by dance industry expert, Benjamin Allen. Dance classes every day, delicious meals, locally-led excursions and plenty of time to sit by (one of the 3) pools and take a moment of gratitude for life.
The focus of this retreat is dance, so that’s what we’ll do. Ben has lined up classes every day ranging from let-loose cardio grooves, to hard-hitting choreography. Wherever you are on your dance journey, this retreat will be of value to you. There is no judgment!
You will have two opportunities to bring together breathwork, energizing flows, deep stretching, and restorative postures during yoga with Leslie. Whether you are new to yoga, or have practiced for years, Leslie hopes to create an inclusive and welcoming class with modifications for all. Her hope is that through mindful movement, you will create a bridge that allows you to access what your body, mind and soul truly need.
Wellness workshops will be offered as an opportunity to center yourself around your purpose and passion, and leave the retreat feeling more connected, clear, and empowered! In interactive workshop #1, you will gain a deeper understanding of where you are now, and where you want to go in relation to what matters most in your life. In workshop #2, master your mindset using realistic tools to relieve stress. Expand your knowledge and leave with resources to live your best life!
Adventure & Relaxation:
When not celebrating dance, we will explore the beauty of Costa Rica with excursions like zip-lining and a sunset catamaran cruise. We’ll groove through the streets of Tamarindo (silent disco style), sharing meals, having moments of connection, and relaxation.
Please join us for this unforgettable adventure! Space is limited!
