May Greetings! Update!

Published: Thu, 05/12/16


May Greetings, 
Hope this finds you well.

We are reaching out to you with a quick survey to find out if you are interested in attending any future retreats with us. We are planning ahead for our 2017 calendar and have a selection of retreats that we hope you will consider joining us on!  

First on the calendar is Costa Rica!

February 18-25, 2017  
Saturday to Saturday - COSTA RICA - Living the Good Life!

We will explore the many components that contribute to our overall health. 
Hint: This will include hiking for 12 hours (or 5 minutes), swimming at dawn (or milking cows at dawn), making yogurt, yoga downward dog with the toucans (or a sloth), scratching a monkey, partaking in an action packed lecture by John Bagnulo or being entertained by Jan Buhrman’s super easy and super delicious cooking classes.
Everything is optional of course. You can always just hang by the pool all day and sleep on the beach all night. Oh! Did we mention the Beach BBQ and bonfire? These are just a few examples  of what is available to you in the Osa Peninsula in February.
Come! That is, if you trust us...

Iguana Lodge is a cool, contemporary tropical beachfront resort in the remote jungles of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The Iguana Lodge is holding the week of February 18-25, 2017 for us.

Our topic will be: Living the Good Life Every DAY!
As many of you know, the Iguana Lodge is located in an outstanding, remote location and offers wonderful meals including a Mango and Cucumber Salad, for which we share the recipe! The retreat will run for 7 days, Saturday-Saturday. Saturdays are arrival and departure days.

The daily schedule will look something like:

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday:

6:30AM - Sunrise ocean swim

8:00 - Yoga

9:00 - Breakfast

10:00- 12:00 - Lecture on Health and Wellness

12:00PM - Cooking class

1:00 - Lunch 

2:00-5:00 - Free time

6:00 - Dinner

Wednesday is a free day where you can choose to either adventure into the jungle or out onto the water.

Cost, depending on single, double or triple accommodations will run from $2600 - $3700 per person. 
Flights to the Osa Peninsula from San Jose, Costa Rica run at about $260.00, round trip. Currently, there are non-stop flights to San Jose for around $500.00 USD.
NOW is the time to book your flights, as this week, most round trip flights are in the $480.00 - $500.00 range, which is considered a good price!
