Escape to the heart of the jungle, evolve your creativity and recharge your senses. 

This 8 day retreat is the perfect opportunity to enhance your skills, refine your craft, create, connect and grow.

Retreat Location








Nestled within the lush Costa Rican jungle, Selvática Eco Retreat is a haven for nature enthusiasts seeking

tranquility and connection. Surrounded by vibrant wildlife, including playful monkeys, majestic toucans, and colorful macaws, the property offers a unique blend of serenity and adventure. 

Explore nature trails that wind through the verdant landscape, or unwind in one of the two yoga shalas; Sky shala overlooking rolling hills and the sunset ocean view and Jungle shala located beneath the magical jungle canopy where the monkeys play. 

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty as you discover a hidden half-year creek and a jungle pool perfect for refreshing dips. Relax in hammocks, finding solace in the sounds of the jungle. The lookout bar provides an ideal spot for wildlife observation, offering breathtaking views of the property. Tucked away on a quiet road within a gated community, the retreat is a peaceful oasis just 20 minutes from some of Costa Rica’s most pristine beaches, strategically positioned between the vibrant beach town of Jaco and the renowned Manuel Antonio, ensuring a perfect balance of tranquility and access to coastal delights.

The Accommodation



Welcome to your home away from home where comfort meets cleanliness with views so lush, you’ll be jumping out of bed to start your day! All of the rooms are equipped with the comfiest hypoallergenic, pillowtop beds and high quality sheets to make your sleep amazing. The sustainable architectural design of the rooms incorporate cross ventilation through the large windows and an industrial-powered fan helps move fresh air in, eliminating the need for an energy-consuming air conditioner. 

The building is designed along the solar solstice paths so no matter what time of year you visit, the warmth of the sun will never shine into your room keeping it comfortable and temperate throughout the day. Selvática offers two double rooms, a triple room, and a 5-bed luxury dorm room with one individual bed and 4 double beds (two lofted and two grounded). 

All of the rooms feature ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold water showers and eco flush toilets. Each bed is equipped with an electrical outlet and personal reading light. The triple and double rooms offer additional patio seating overlooking the gardens and pool. 

The Food 



Indulge your palate with the culinary delights at our retreat, where food is not just a meal but a celebration of local flavors and cultural diversity. Committed to sustainability the ingredients are sourced  locally, favoring the freshest [mostly] organic produce that the region has to offer. Every dish is meticulously crafted in-house, with love by a registered dietitian ensuring a genuine and heartfelt dining experience. The culinary team draws inspiration from a rich tapestry of global cuisines, skillfully adapting and infusing them with the essence of the region. Whether it's a breakfast bowl bursting with tropical fruits, a lunch that mirrors the vibrant colors of the local markets, or a dinner inspired by the warmth of Costa Rican hospitality with a fusion flare, the menu is a journey of flavors that delights the senses. Join us at the table, where every bite tells a story of community, sustainability, and the joy of savoring meals made with passion and care.

Classes/ Workshop 





The classes/workshops will offer you an array of my favorite creative tools and exercises to help you expand and deepen your expression and movement quality. Each day will cover a different theme which is based on the top requests I get from my students. This will include splits and ankle catches, backbends, inversions, creative sequencing/transitions, partner work and assisting and adjusting.  If you are a yoga teacher the retreat also offers 20 hours of continued personal development hours which will be yoga alliance accredited.


For those of you newer to my teaching style, I combine movement from a wide variety of disciplines including yoga, contortion, calisthenics, functional fitness and dance floorwork.

My teaching also has a strong focus on prop and partner based assists including thai flow therapy which blends yoga postures with thai massage.

Prerequisite: In order to help sculpt a great experience for everyone attending it would be great for me to know the level of each participant.

The Retreat will include two half day and one full day excursion. These are:

Rainmaker Canopy Hike - half day 

As you venture up the mountain side, a series of thrilling suspension bridges overlooking the tree tops and rushing river below awaits you. This is a fantastic tour for people wanting to experience the magic of a tropical rainforest with a moderate level of hiking and the exciting thrill of suspended bridges! Don’t forget your swimsuit to take a dip into some crystal clear natural pools and waterfalls.

Manuel Antonio National Park- full day

A hugely popular tourist destination famous for its array of hill top restaurants with stunning views, world class beaches, and of course the most popular National Park in Costa Rica. The NP boasts an array of wildlife from monkeys to sloths to exotic birds and coatis (local guide with telescope highly recommended.)

Baby turtle release 

A day to remember! In an effort to save the baby sea turtles from poachers and predators, Victor and his family collect vulnerable eggs along Playa Bandera and keep them safe in a guarded sanctuary. When it's time for them to hatch the baby turtles are released into the ocean with luck on their side. After the release, spend a few hours walking, soaking up the sun, and exploring the endless, picturesque beach before heading back to the retreat center.
