Why simply vacation, when you can ignite, thrive and shine? Firefly invites you to join us for our sixth annual retreat at Blue Spirit in beautiful Nosara, Costa Rica. This retreat is perfect for those who are feeling stressed-out, stuck, at a cross-road in life, or simply need a break. On this retreat, you will have the opportunity to reset, let go of anything that no longer serves you, and create plans for what you want to invite in next. When you unplug and slow down to allow yourself the time and space for self-care, you can truly connect with your sense of purpose, and develop a deeper connection to your passion.

There's a reason we keep returning to this magical place! Step away from the daily grind to ignite your soul with a week of bliss on the beach in one of the world's Blue Zones. Nourish your body and spirit with nutritious food and daily yoga appropriate for all levels. Acquire tools and resources to transform your life. Relax into the “Pura Vida” lifestyle of Costa Rica. 

This year there will be an opportunity to extend your time in Costa Rica to visit the cloud forest in Monteverde.

Get away to the mountains of Colorado to reconnect to yourself in the great outdoors. This retreat has it all: yoga, hiking, and SUP, within a long weekend (Thursday to Sunday)! Grand Lake is the ultimate place to experience summer in the Rockies - located only two hours from Denver and just outside Rocky Mountain National Park (accessible directly from our host lodge), with a historic downtown, and two beautiful lakes perfect for paddle boarding!

 

Start the day with a vinyasa yoga class to energize you for the day ahead. Enjoy the fresh mountain air while getting a great workout hiking at altitude with hundreds of routes to explore in Rocky Mountain National Park, and Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests. Take your yoga to a new level by practicing SUP yoga on the lake (optional activity). 

 

If relaxation is what you have in mind, lounge around by the pool, or take a stroll down Grand Lake's historic boardwalk with over 60 shops, restaurants, and galleries. Wind down in the evening with a yin yoga practice to stretch and recover from the day's adventure. Join in guided meditations designed to help you let go, get clear on what you want more of in your life, and create a vision for your future. Relive your day's experience by sharing it with fellow retreaters over a delicious dinner. ​​

TESTIMONIALS

"This was my first yoga retreat, and it was honestly a life-changing experience. I learned that retreats aren't necessarily about escaping your life. They're about temporarily removing yourself and entering a positive environment where you can nurture your body and mind, then take that renewed perspective and bring back healthy habits that you can incorporate into your life back at home. I continue to enjoy the benefits of my retreat, even after I've returned home." 

"I literally just had one of the best weeks of my life! Thank you for your guidance and support throughout this journey! Thank you Thank you!!"

 

"Carrie - you are a true gem! Thank you for such a transformative experience!"
