Pavones in a tiny coastal town in Costa Rica, near its border with Panama, that is best known for its lush, untouched jungle environment and near-perfect surf conditions.
We love hosting Reset Week in Pavones because it is a tiny, quiet town with only one main road with a handful of restaurants and stores. The low-key, laid-back atmosphere and hospitable locals make this a prime location to completely disconnect, recharge, and gain clarity.
What do we do?
Every day follows a similar routine in order to healthy habits to be formed that transcend the retreat. While each day is different in terms of workshops and activities, you can expect that each morning we wake up with the sun and have a healthy breakfast with plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and lean proteins, and then head off to the yoga shala for yoga. For those that are keen, the best surfing conditions are at sunrise and sunset.
After yoga, we host a personal growth workshop on topics such as creating a powerful vision for 2019, how to implement heathy habits into your daily life, or how to create more happiness and flow. The workshops are designed to help participants gain clarity on their goals, visions, and dreams for the upcoming year.
After a lunch break where all clean, healthy meals are served, there is usually an afternoon break for participants to chill out, explore, sleep in the hammocks, get massages or lay in the sun.
In the afternoon we all reconvene for another activity, whether it is a hike or a self-care all-natural spa afternoon. Following this, we round out our day at the beach together, watching the sunset and meditating.
Some nights we are too blissfully relaxed to do any activities after dinner, but other nights we go into town for dinner, dance under the moonlight on the beach, or participate in a cacao ceremony to set our spirits free.
How should I expect to feel?
Retreats are an incredible way to gain clarity, reconnect with your best self, and nourish yourself from the inside out. You can expect to feel recharged, restored, and ready to take on 2019. Our intention is to have you truly reset your mind, body and spirit.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
You fly into San Jose from Toronto, and then take a short drive, flight or shuttle from San Jose to Golfito, and then to Pavones. The travel is worth it to get somewhere so untouched and remote!
WHERE DO WE STAY?
We all stay together at La Ponderosa Retreat Centre, which is located beside the beach. There are shared and private rooms available. All of our meals are lovingly prepared by owner Angela and her staff from the local kitchen, and served family style in the dining house.
What is the investment?
$1950 USD - $3000 USD depending on room (shared versus private suite). If you do not attend with a friend, we will match you in a shared room with another retreat participant.
