This is no ordinary retreat, this is an EXPERIENCE. Not only will we dive into the transformational practice of yoga and Bhakti yoga, we will also have many opportunities to experience all that Las Terrenas has to offer in this beautiful beach side location. 


We will begin by exploring the culture and history of the capital city of Santo Domingo, and from there we will continue up to Las Terrenas to dive into waterfall hikes, island hopping, and unraveling into island time for the week to follow… this MAGICAL week in paradise will be transformational beyond what you could even imagine.

As for getting to the retreat, I have copied these directions from the Blue Osa website. 


Book your international flights to San Jose, Costa Rica. (airport code SJO) 

From San Jose, you will fly or drive to Puerto Jimenez. You may book your local flights directly with Costa Rica’s national airline, Sansa Air, or Skyway. If you are staying overnight, you may want to consider booking with Aerobell as it is located in Pavas, which is much closer to downtown San Jose.


The Sansa/Skyways Airport terminal is about 100 meters from the International airport. Once you exit from immigration, you take your luggage and walk left. You will exit the terminal onto the main street and then keep walking until you come to the airport.


Once You Book Your Flights- please email me your full names and your arrival and departure flight schedule/times/flight numbers so that I can arrange your shuttle with the resort.

about your teachers



Holly found her way to yoga almost twenty years ago. She was hooked by how the practice made her feel welcome in her body and mind; something she had never really experienced before. She continued to practice and deepen her relationship with yoga as she obtained her Master’s Degree in Education. Throughout her time as an English teacher, she always found ways to offer yoga to her students and fellow school teachers. Teaching and connecting with others through yoga and movement has always come very naturally to her, and has been well received by all with whom she has worked. 

After taking her 200hr training and becoming certified in 2016, she seized an opportunity to open her own yoga studio in her home of Whitefish, Montana. Now, almost forty and more than 700 hours of yoga training under her belt, she has found that one of the most rewarding parts of her work is building community through trainings and retreats. ​She lives for sharing her love of yoga, chanting, singing, movement, and creating community and connection among those she has the privilege of calling her students and friends. 

Her classes are typically a balanced mixture of meditation, breathwork, mantra, philosophy, music, and intentional/ devotional movement. She lives to make a good playlist and seeks to bring joy, wellbeing, strength, soul, and connection into her yoga classes. 

Her intention for this retreat is to help participants deeply unwind and align into nature and to fall back in love with our bodies. You can expect some rejuvenating vinyasa and movement with equal parts pranayama, mantra, and meditation.



Suzy has been a dedicated Yoga Teacher and practitioner for over ten years. While she dabbled in Yoga since college it wasn’t until attending nursing school and experiencing a difficult divorce that she really found Yoga and started practicing regularly. The practice helped her to release anger and build -inner and outer-strength and resilience that she could use to get through anything. The physical Asana practice got Suzy hooked yet she quickly realized the inner benefits were even more impactful and that the path of yoga was so much more than the physical postures. Suzy is an experienced 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher and has been teaching Yoga since graduating from her first 200 hour teacher training in 2012. Suzy is a co-founder of Love Yoga and Evoke Energy Yoga,  has led two Yoga Teacher trainings, opened two yoga  studios and has co-facilitated countless additional programs and trainings.


Suzy is also the founder and owner of SoulFULL REIKI & Yoga and is a level II Reiki practitioner and Registered Nurse of 15 years. Additionally she is co-founder and co-owner of Evoke Energy Yoga. She is deeply passionate about serving others and is a healer at heart. Suzy teaches Yin yoga, Vinyasa, Healing flow, VinYin, Yoga Nidra and Meditation. In her classes she believes in addressing the whole person which encompasses the physical body, mind, emotions and spirit because “we have a body-yet we are not just our body”. Her classes are a range of slow and meditative to challenging and sweaty. She teaches with intention and connection and her classes and offerings are accessible, inclusive and relatable. Suzy strives to teach a holistic and comprehensive yoga experience that reflects the deeper teachings and wisdom of yoga and loves to weave in hands-on assists and healing touch in her classes. 

Suzy spent most of her young adult life in Bend Oregon where she attended nursing school and received most of her Yoga and Reiki training. Shortly after having her daughter she moved to Montana with her partner to raise their daughter in a smaller community and to experience a “slower pace of life”. In Suzy’s free time she can be found playing with her daughter, paddling mountain lakes, foraging, tending to her garden, practicing & teaching yoga & reiki, camping and soaking up all Montana has to offer- especially the summer sun.

It is Suzy’s true passion to offer Yoga to anybody and everybody. She has received so much knowledge, wisdom and life experience as a result of practicing and teaching yoga that it is her life's mission to share it with others.
