In May, the theme is Movement. Guests can participate in experiences such as new movement classes to promote vitality, a spinal articulation series, fascia expansion and water meditation. Local visiting masters bring the world’s best wellness practitioners to share their passionate approach to whole-body wellness. Lastly, participate in grounding experiences in the Costa Rican cloud forest, an experience to help emphasize the healing powers of nature through mindful hiking or tree climbing.

June brings Community. Expect breathwork classes to help reset the mind and connect with oneself and others more fully.
