Costa Rica Yoga Retreats


Mystica is proud to host many beautiful and powerful Retreats in the heart of Costa Rica. Overlooking the majestic Arenal Lake and Volcano, Mystica is located in the midst of a vortex of energy that deeply supports personal growth, transformation, and inspiration. All of our Retreats are customized based on leaders’ preferences, often combining Yoga and Transformation with adventure and enjoyment of the luscious beauty of Mother Nature through waterfalls, hot springs, and much more.

One of Mystica’s jewels is ‘La Esencia’, our Yoga Sanctuary nestled in the forest by a flowing river. Our spacious, covered, wooden platform embraced by the forest provides an unforgettable, natural ambience for Yoga and meditation practice, and offers an ideal space for pure relaxation. We also have a refreshing dipping pool made of river stones with a waterfall, a detoxifying infrared sauna, a tree-top wellness space for Massage and Reiki, and a special Mystic Star Labyrinth for walking meditation. 

Take sacred time away from the busy-ness of everyday life to relax, restore, and rejuvenate yourself in one of our wonderful retreats. We look forward to sharing the Beauty and Magic of Mystica and Costa Rica with you!

Leader: Shayna Hiller

You are invited to awaken your senses and indulge in the mystery and magic that is your divine body. Tune in to your sensuous, playful, and magnetic nature in one of the most lush, nourishing lands on Earth. 

Feminine wisdom has long been kept from mainstream society, yet things are shifting and there is no better time to rekindle the most valuable relationship that exists. This retreat includes classes and practices from Yoga, Tantra, Taoism and Shamanism, as well as excursions to awaken your senses and reconnect you with the womb of Mother Nature. 

Consider this an invitation to reclaim your body, her unique cycles, her subtle signals, and her deep wisdom and power on this enlightening weeklong journey. It is time to unwind our nervous systems and prioritize these lost sacred feminine arts so we can live a wholesome, abundant, orgasmic life. 

Contact Shayna at for more information and to reserve your spot.

MARCH 12-26, 2022 (14 NIGHTS)


Leaders: Duane & Catherine O’Kane

Discover your purpose at this transformative 2-week mind, body, and soul boot camp! The Rude Awakening is an exciting, transformative two-week leadership experience with people from all around the globe. We are constantly teaching those around us what we believe about ourselves, others, and the world. More often than not, we complain about not ‘getting’ the results that we want. However, life organizes itself around what we put into it. Taking responsibility for our own experience and the impact you have on others is empowering. Who you are and what you naturally extend to others will come back to you and determine how you feel.

This workshop provides a rare opportunity to address lifelong issues, come out the other side, and leave with greater vitality, committed to a concrete year plan. Friendships formed at the Rude Awakening are lifelong. The Rude Awakening is a two week residential workshop, and requires the Awakening as a prerequisite. The Rude Awakening proceeds at a different pace than our typical weekend workshops, allowing for more integration time.

Write for Transformation in Yourself and Your Community

Leader: Amy R Brooks

When women gather together, healing happens. Join Amy R Brooks, author and book coach, as she and a circle of other women create a sacred space in the mountains of Costa Rica to explore writing as a source of transformation. We will partner with silent mornings, labyrinth walks, meditation, massage, bodies of water, and guided writing workshops to release what is holding you back and welcome what is patiently waiting to serve you. 

Our time together will also include an opening day at the beach with overnight accommodations at a local hotel, transportation to Mystica Lodge, daily yoga with healer Lori Myles-Carullo, group and individual activities, and locally sourced food. Mid-week we will hike to several waterfalls to rejuvenate ourselves and then dine at a local restaurant. In every moment, we will use both nature and writing to guide our journey. You will also be able to find respite in the onsite wading pool, on various walking paths, the rainforest river, an infrared sauna, nearby Ceiba tree, and the majestic Lake Arenal. 

Please contact Amy at to register for this magical experience.
