Spring Equinox in Costa Rica
Enjoy the sun, sand, fitness, and fun on this 6-day wellness-minded getaway! Conveniently timed around the spring equinox, which represents an annual time for growth and renewal, we'll work out our bodies and minds while focusing on specific intentions we set on day one. Throughout the week we will check in on those intentions in workouts, meditations, and exciting activities like zip lining and surfing. Join Coach Beth and a group of like-minded travelers for the right balance of fitness, adventure and relaxation!
Each day of the retreat will combine boot camp-style workouts and more restorative stretches and core workouts led by Coach Beth Roberts. The daily classes are meant to challenge and motivate you, while being accessible to all fitness levels and utilizing the natural environment as the gym!
In addition to our daily workouts and yoga classes, we'll enjoy a variety of exciting activities! We'll explore Costa Rica from the treetops on an adrenaline-filled zip lining canopy tour on one day, and then we'll have a choice of an all-levels surf lesson or relaxing massage on another day. Towards the end of the trip, we'll go on an afternoon/sunset catamaran sailing cruise where we have the choice of relaxing on board with open bar or snorkeling in the ocean and watching for whales and dolphins.
In between activities and workouts will be plenty of free time to relax, reflect, or sign up for additional activities or excursions. One special activity we have planned (and included) is a reiki or reflexology session in the comfort of your room by our special guest Jen! Plus, our resort is right on the beach and has beautiful pools so free time is yours to cherish! And when you walk out of the hotel you're in the middle of a small town with lots of shops and restaurants to explore.
