Bring your heart & mind wide open for a refreshing spring retreat aimed to EMPOWER your mind, ELEVATE your consciousness, and INSPIRE your soul. 


Join Paula Millar & Tia Platte for 8 days on the magnificent beaches of Esterillos Este, Costa Rica from May 6-13, 2020. Come experience PURA VIDA first hand while resting, rejuvenating, and recharging body, mind & soul. There will be plenty of yoga, delicious food, rest and relaxation, as well as, playful adventures to be experienced. Enjoy unique accommodation is nestled in the oceanfront boutique resort of Encantada Ocean Cottages.


Take a break from your routine and experience a very special trip celebrating Yoga Sources 20th anniversary! You’ll receive the perfect combination of yoga, relaxation, and adventure. Enjoy twice daily yoga sessions, three healthy meals, private pool and lounge, hammocks on the beach, and plenty of time to explore. Everything is located steps away from your room. 


Begin your day with an awakening yoga session at the amazing outdoor oceanside yoga studio. You will align the koshas (5 layers of your being) through asana, specific pranayama & meditation techniques with extended relaxation to drop you deeper within. Props will be provided.


Each evening class will focus on slow, mindful movements to rejuvenate you, promoting deep relaxation and restful sleep. These wind-down practices will help to reduce fatigue and set the stage for further inquiry into your vision for the future. We will work with specific vision exercises to help facilitate the process of honing in on what it is you wish to manifest in your life. From this place, creativity will be sparked and your vision will become clear. 


We will adapt all practices to meet the needs of everyone in the group and give plenty of room for contemplation. Over the course of the retreat, you will find time to slow down and integrate all of the important elements of the yoga practice to meet your true Self. You'll walk away from this retreat experience feeling spacious, focused, and clear.


Grab a friend or travel solo. We look forward to traveling with you! 


"The human being is a soul body encased in four other bodies called "koshas " or "sheaths." These are a physical body, a body of vital energy, an instinctive-intellectual body and a mental or cognitive body. The inmost soul body is the fifth, the blissful, ever-giving-wisdom anandamaya kosha. This soul is neither male nor female. It is that which never dies, even when its four outer sheaths perish as they naturally do. We are the immortal soul, atman. The sum of our true existence is the anandamaya kosha and its essence, our Self, which is the Divine Mind and Transcendent Absolute Being of God. The five bodies are a reality to be experienced as we progress in our spiritual evolution."
