A Wholebeing Journey to Costa Rica Yoga Retreat with Alice Dommert

May 19, 2018 - May 26, 2018


Here are the details of the Prasada Wholebeing Journey to Costa Rica, May 19-26, 2018.

This 7-day trip is a journey to an extraordinary place, fresh, farm-to-table, organic meals, opportunities for rest, relaxation and connection with yourself and others in one of the world’s most beautiful natural environments. You can enjoy the beach, the pool and some amazing spa options and there are many adventures, from horseback riding to kayaking and a jungle zip line that you can explore.

Why go on this trip with us?
If you’ve had Costa Rica on your “places to go” list this is an easy way to get a beautiful taste of what the country has to offer. Maybe you are curious and want to try yoga at your own pace, or if you have experience as a yogi, to deepen your practice. Perhaps you have heard the buzz about mindfulness and are trying to understand what it is all about or are curious about a meditation practice. Each day we’ll offer a Wholebeing Practice to give you a chance to experience and build on what feels good for you

We all need a change of scenery, and time to step out of the routine, a time to rest and get perspective. Though a variety of practices we’ll guide you to cultivate calm, clarity, strength and ease; share a way of living simple, connected, whole and well. In Costa Rica they call it Pura Vida.

Meg Townsend and Alice Dommert, your guides for this journey, have spent years cultivating an array of mind body practices. A trip like this allows you time to have those casual conversations about how any of these practices might support your life. You’ll get to ask the questions, and have the conversations, beyond what we offer in our corporate programs.

Journey Focus/ Philosophy
Alice has been writing and speaking about the three environments we live in. The mind, the body and the built and natural environment. Each of these affects the other. We’re taking this journey to have a beautiful natural environment provide the wonder that often gets lost in the bustle of daily life. When that natural environment is feeding you with sounds and smells and beauty of every kind, you’ll soften and relax. No effort is required, and your body will respond with delight.

With that stage set, you will enjoy simple, fresh food that will truly nurture your body. You’ll move with ease and have the chance to rest and explore yoga on a different level.

With this saturation in nature and a relaxed body, the mind can more easily find calm, clarity and insight. Neuroscience research shows that relaxation precedes insight, similar to when you are in the shower and get a great idea. With insight the mind shifts and then, in turn, it changes the brain’s structure and your body’s physiology. All three are in continuous rearrangement in response to the others.

We’ll expand your capacity to detect and leverage how each of these three environments can help you to more easily manage the bumps in life and find meaning, purpose and joy.
