Day 1: Arrival day
Pura Vida! It’s time for you to relax and receive- we've got it from here! A driver will meet all guests at the Liberia Airport and shuttle the group to the retreat property (approx. 3 hour drive). Your Fit 4 Adventure guides will greet you upon arrival at the retreat hotel and help guests settle into their rooms. Take time to unwind and settle in before meeting for dinner and our retreat Opening Ceremony.
Every morning, you will receive a 90-minute class before breakfast. Each day you will explore a new chakra through the daily morning and evening sessions that include yoga movement, meditation, sound, interactive group experiences and energy work to activate your own energy centers, as well as to receive, learn and to provide insight for your path. You'll leave the retreat week with not just an experience, but also with takeaway tools and information about the yogic world and how you can apply these tools to your daily lives.
Our first official day will kick off with the root chakra. Chakras are energetic hubs that run along the spine and within our bodies that connect to different organs, emotions, movements and decision making. You will get the chance to explore each of the 7 chakras on each day of the retreat.
After your morning session, enjoy a fresh breakfast and free time to roam Playa Guiones and get familiar with the area. We’ll have lunch together in town with free time to explore as a group or on your own.
You can even grab a bike from the property and roam the town.
We’ll meet back up early afternoon for our golden hour excursion.
Experience the trails and beaches of Nosara from atop a horse as we take a sunset horseback ride. Nothing rings more pure and true than the feeling of the sunset glow hitting your face from atop one of these gentle spiritual creatures.
Unwind back at the retreat property for dinner followed by an evening meditation and sound bath.
Morning session as we explore the sacral chakra. Grab a healthy breakfast at the property before our first group surf lesson. Surfing in Guiones? It’s a vibe.
With consistent year round waves it’s no wonder why Playa Guiones has made a name for itself as a swell magnet. There are waves to be had 365 days a year. Guiones has a break for every type of surfer, from novice and beginner up to advanced and loco. Anyone (and EVERYONE) can surf here, so get stoked!
After our surf time, we’ll have lunch at the property with free time to relax or roam. Up to you!
We will meet back up for an afternoon sound journey before dinner.
After a morning session on the solar plexus charka, enjoy a day for you! Grab a delicious breakfast at the property and then roam. Perhaps this your day to beach bum, be a book worm at the pool, shop or something else that calls. A reminder, we can help set you up with additional excursions or 1:1 appointments with local healers of YOUR choosing.
We'll meet back up for an afternoon session and dinner out in town.
Morning session exploring the heart chakra followed by breakfast at the property.
We will meet back up in the evening for a little local movement with a DJ-led Ecstatic Dance to move, embrace our flow and enjoy an evening with locals.
Why dance? It’s another form of movement that can truly help you drop out of the mind and into the body. To remember what it’s like to embrace your essence with no hesitation. Ecstatic Dance can be a powerful stress reliever, providing an outlet for individuals to release tension and emotions stored in the body. It's a great way to creatively express and to trust. Kind of like when we lead life with an open heart.
Afterwards we'll grab dinner at a local spot.
Experience the throat chakra in a special morning class. You will have another full free day today of your choosing. We will meet back up in the afternoon for a class before time getting ready to head out for a special dinner during golden hour.
Tonight we are headed to a hidden gem in the jungle for dinner with one epic sunset view.
Let's bring it all together. We’ll kick off the day with a morning session exploring the 3rd eye. The space of your inner indigo & your inner wisdom.
Enjoy your last full day in Nosara! After breakfast, roam, rest, explore!
We will meet back up as a group later in the afternoon for a white party closing ceremony and finale dinner at the property. Yes, bring a white outfit as we celebrate one epic week of nourishing, exploring and celebrating the mind, body and soul.
Day 8: Departure Day
Morning reflections and breakfast before airport departures.
