I attended the Strength and Stillness yoga retreat with Kara and Martin in Nosara, Costa Rica in February 2022 and it was absolutely fantastic. It was easy to feel relaxed and tuned into my body as we were in a beautiful location, close to the beach, in paradise. What made it so special was the quality of the yoga and meditation provided by Kara and Martin and the energy they brought to each session we had together. I also really liked the journal prompts by Kara each morning – it really helped me focus my thoughts and intentions. The food was also so, so delicious! I highly recommend this retreat if you want to experience peak health.

FAQs

Do I have to sign up with a friend to book a shared room?

No. If you register for a shared room, we’ll do our best to pair you with someone we think you’d be comfortable with. It’s an opportunity to make a new friend! Kara has met some of her besties because of shared rooms 🙂

What meals are included?

The meals included are pre-practice light bites, daily brunches, and all dinners – Driftwood will be providing the vegetarian/plant-based brunch and dinners.  We will also be taking everyone out to an extra special spot for our final dinner. Your payment doesn’t include afternoon meals if required, which gives you a chance to explore Nosara and the local fare on your own, we are happy recommend some of our fave spots.

How do I pay & what payment types do you accept?

For in-person payments (scheduled by emailing info@bodhiholistic.ca), we accept credit cards, debit cards, cash, and cheques. For over-the-phone payments (613-584-1729), we accept credit cards. For online payments we only accept e-transfers (email to info@bodhiholistic.ca). You will receive an official receipt from our business Bodhi Holistic Inc.

Will I receive an official Bodhi Holistic business receipt?

Yes. We’ll email you the first receipt after a deposit is paid and a second one after your full payment received.

How do I arrive at the retreat hotel?

You can join our communal shuttle that will be leaving from the Libera airport on the first day of the retreat, and one going back on the last day of the retreat (both times included in your package). Another option is driving yourself or taking private taxis to the hotel any time you’d like (not included in your package). Just remember, the rides are a little bumpy.

Do I need travel insurance?

Yes. However, there are no insurance plans included with signing up for this retreat. We highly recommend that you have both travel and some form of pandemic insurance. Some credit card plans (ex, RBC Avion) provide travel insurance if the credit card is used for the retreat purchase, and some flight providers may offer a pandemic based refund, but it’s best for you to seek out the right insurance company and purchase a plan that covers your needs.

Will there be creepy crawlies in my room?

We don’t expect that you will be having any sleep overs with bugs and creepy crawlies. As we are in the dry jungle the most common room visitor is a gecko that may decide to keep your room bug free. In Nosara, you may come across some bugs and scorpions but they typically don’t come inside, and when left alone are happy to keep away. If an intruder makes it way into your lodgings we will take care of it for you with help from the staff.

How do I reach you if I have any other questions?

You can email or phone us (info@bodhiholistic.ca or 613-584-1729).
