Woman, sister, mother. We invite you to come together to celebrate, remember our feminine ways and awaken our wild nature as women. 

Our intention is to create a place where you can fall in love with yourself. Where you can connect to your true feminine essence, and your sisters, in a pure, raw, way in a safe container. 

Let’s gather to remind ourselves of the divine feminine spirit and experience the power of women gathering. Together we embrace our own unique bodies as much as each others and bring back a sense of joy for the simple gift of being alive. 

Let’s dance barefoot together in the lush tropical forest of the jungle. Come bathe in the nature of Costa Rica, wake up from the birds of the jungle, spend time together and alone, and find back stillness and peace within. 

Let’s reconnect to our hearts and remember why we are here. Take this time for YOU. We are all here to listen to our own inner voice, can you hear it? What do you truly long for? What is your purpose? How do you want to live your life? Only YOU can know. 

During this retreat, we will embody our beauty and shadow, innocence and strength, darkness and light, through dancing, sharing, singing, connecting to all four elements of nature, and celebrating the Full Moon.

Let’s start weaving together, Sisters.

How to Get Here

Travelling can easily be achieved by flying into Liberia International Airport, which is approximately two hours away, or through San Jose, which is five hours away. You can also choose to take a domestic flight to Nosara Airport, which is a 40 min taxi ride away from our retreat place.

Alya Retreat Center

Our Magical Jungle Home

We have found the most perfect place for our retreat, Alya, nestled in the Costa Rican jungle yet just five minutes away from a beautiful paradise beach. This serene eco-retreat centre is located on a secluded 19-acre property on the Nicoya peninsula in Costa Rica which is considered a Blue Zone. Here, we enjoy the luxury of simplicity and live close to nature in facilities designed to heal, cleanse and rejuvenate you. 

The beach village of Nosara, where you can find vegan cafés, surf shops and fancy restaurants, is just a 40 minutes car ride away if you would like to come and enjoy this before or stay after the retreat.
