April 8-15, 2017

This will be our 3rd adventure to The Blue Spirit Retreat Centre, it’s amazing!

This retreat is steeped in the wisdom of Yoga, Meditation, Breathing Practices, delicious + healthy food and lively pursuits into self-nourishment, inside and out.  The day-to-day details are completely taken care of so you can truly enjoy the profound peace that this jungle + oceanic environment has to offer.
Our Conscious Breathwork Sessions are an ideal opportunity to melt stress, process trauma and gain intuitive insights. This is a guided meditation, often the highlight of the retreat week, and a fantastic way to offer immediate, cellular level detoxification to your body and mind.
Morning Yoga is feel-good, gentle, flowing, and informative.  We check in.  We breathe big.  We move energy.  We rest.
All classes and workshops are practiced in the different studios on site.  (And sometimes right on the beach!)  You will experience your practice immersed in the jungle and/or listening to the ocean.  All of the spaces at Blue Spirit are simply beautiful and inviting.
Welcome to paradise.  Pura Vida.

 

Weekly Overview

We will have 3 vegetarian buffet meals prepared for us daily with freshly caught fish served 2-3 of the evenings.   The food here is thoughtful, delicious, and beautifully crafted by a genius kitchen team at Blue Spirit.  The variety is endless.
Mornings include yoga class, breakfast, and breath sessions while afternoons are softly scheduled with lunch, self-care workshops, additional yoga class or open space for your choice of adventure / relaxation.  Evenings include meditation, dinner, and pre-bed relaxation yoga.
 You may choose to take the free weekly shuttle into Nosara town for gift shopping, sipping fresh coconut water, or for an opportunity to practice your spanish with friendly locals.

Your Hostess

JenOls-45Hello Beautiful.  My name is Jenna Olsthoorn.  I am a Canadian RMT, Yoga Teacher, Conscious Breath Facilitator, and Meditation coach.
With a huge smile, I welcome you to a sunny, sacred, and nourishing retreat week in a gorgeous part of the world!
Yoga is my medicine and I am honoured to share its wisdom and wide benefits with my students.  I teach alignment-based, heart expanding yoga classes as well as Hatha Yoga and Yoga Nidra.  These classes are for all levels to enjoy.  I welcome each of you into our healing space with warmth and attentiveness.

It is important to know when to retreat, and also when to strike… I believe that retreats are a necessary part of life, to re-gain clarity and to remember our true path.  It takes courage to step back and observe where we are, and it’s worth every admirable moment.

Welcome, all.
-Jenna
