Why simply vacation, when you can ignite, thrive and shine? Firefly invites you to join us for our annual retreat in beautiful 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.

This year we're heading to the beautiful town of Las Catalinas! 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.

Quimixto, Mexico

January 13 - 20, 2024

Retreat Leader: Carrie Lehtonen

This retreat is exclusively for Firefly retreat alumni. 

This is a unique opportunity, initially being offered for only Firefly retreat alumni and their guests, to retreat at a brand new luxury villa on an island off the coast of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The private Mixto villas have six bedrooms with private bathrooms and AC, a kitchen and dining area, and a pool, all within steps of the beach. 

This one-of-a-kind experience includes daily yoga, a volunteer activity to give back to the small community of Quimixto, a walk to a waterfall, free use of kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkeling equipment, and the ability to add surf lessons, a cooking class, or one-on-one holistic wellness coaching sessions. 

 

Step away from the daily grind to ignite your soul with a week on the beach!

Not a Firefly Retreat Alum, contact us to be put on the waitlist in case any spaces open up for non-alumni.

Marshall, North Carolina

September 18 - 21, 2024

Retreat Leader: Carrie Lehtonen

Join Firefly at the Bend of Ivy Lodge, about 30 minutes north of Asheville, North Carolina, for a three-night yoga and hiking retreat to celebrate the Autumnal Equinox. The lodge is located on 63 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains with great hiking in the area.

Each day you'll wake up in a beautiful oasis surrounded by nature. Start the day with a vinyasa yoga class to energize your mind and body, then join in a group hike or take full advantage of the amenities located within Bend of Ivy Lodge. Enjoy nourishing meals prepared onsite to fuel you for the day. If relaxation is what you have in mind, lounge around by the pond, or take a stroll on one of the many meandering trails. Wind down in the evening with yin yoga, before enjoying a delicious dinner.

As with all of Firefly's retreats, you'll have the opportunity to connect to yourself, others and nature. Step away from your day-to-day responsibilities to tap into your passion and purpose. Ignite your inner light, so you can shine! 

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!"
