Mystica facilitates a powerful and magical environment that helps you to connect with Nature, with yourself, and with the Source of All in order to return to unity and oneness.

Mystica is proud to host many beautiful and powerful Yoga Retreats in Costa Rica. Located in the heart of Costa Rica, overlooking the majestic Lake Arenal and Arenal Volcano, Mystica is located in the midst of a vortex of energy that deeply supports personal growth, transformation, and inspiration. All of our Costa Rica yoga 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 ambiance for Yoga and meditation practice, and offers an ideal space for Costa Rica yoga retreats and yoga teacher training. 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.

FINDING FREEDOM FROM WITHIN RETREAT

JANUARY 21-28, 2023

Leader: Deborah Hanlon

You are MORE FREE and READY than YOU even know!! 

 It is TIME to get “Unstuck” and open up to your Authentic Self ?  

Join me on a relaxing yet rejuvenating retreat in gorgeous Costa Rica! This retreat includes an intimate and FUN experience with me (Deborah!) and with fellow seekers  (The ”Lamplighters“) that includes a lot of ‘down time’ , yoga, meditation and relaxation, balanced with day trips and adventures to push us past our comfort zones.  

The theme is to FIND FREEDOM WITHIN.  We have all felt so ‘stuck’ in a weird space since Covid first came on the planet, and many of you are NOW expressing, ‘what is next for me? I feel stuck’. What do I really WANT?  And a huge part of that answer is FREEDOM.  INNER Freedom – The power to BE you AS YOU WANT TO BE.  It’s time for you to SHOW UP for yourself AUTHENTICALLY. 

I know that once we experience the FREEDOM WITHIN,  the rest of our plans for our lives, ‘are details’.  The clarity of ‘what’s next’, comes when the inner freedom is found! This is the week where you can pull back and forge ahead! Expand past your norms! OPEN UP, share a fun time with me and others who can become instant friends!

Triccia Ramos is delighted to welcome you to a heart-opening week in the heart of Costa Rica to create balance, harmony, and experience the Union within!

So much of our confusion in life can be cleared up once we connect to the essence of our Wholeness. Challenges we encounter with our careers, our relationships, our health, and/or our finances are the call to gain a fuller understanding of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies present within us. This week is all about stepping into your Essence, owning your experiences, and transmuting them to create a path forward as your more expansive, more mature, more loving, more healed, and more whole Self.

We will also hike the Hanging Bridges and discover the wonderful secrets hidden in this forest, bathe in the soothing, thermal Hot Springs, and enjoy the serenity amidst peaceful waterfalls at Viento Fresco. PURA VIDA land is the perfect space to hold you as you release your fears and trust the universal process to allow yourself to achieve your dreams and goals.

SHAKTI RISING: Empowerment Retreat for Women
FEBRUARY 18-25, 2023

Leaders: Lori Myles-Carullo, Kaylan Wojcik, and Lauren Racanelli

Ladies! Join us for a power-filled week in the heart of Costa Rica within which to let your SHAKTI SHINE! ‘Shakti’ is a Sanskrit word for the Divine Feminine power at the base of all creative energy. All of us, as women, are the embodiment of Shakti, and as we connect with this powerful energy, we find liberation from old patterns that no longer serve us and we gain the courage, strength, and inspiration to become more of who we truly are on a deep, rich, soul level.

Each day of this magical retreat at Mystica Lodge will be devoted to a different Shakti Goddess Energy from various spiritual traditions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Native American, and Hinduism. Our various practices of breath work, Yoga, meditation, chanting, New Moon ritual, oracle card reading, ecstatic dance, and more will assist us in healing what lies in the shadows of these energies and will empower us into activating and realizing those gifts within our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits.

During our week together, we will adventure to the EcoGlide Canopy Tour by the Arenal Volcano and fly at the top of the jungle, bathe in the soothing thermal Hot Springs of EcoTermales, and enjoy a delicious beach day on the Pacific Coast of the lovely Playa Hermosa. We would love to you to join us in Pura Vida land for a retreat week that will deeply nurture and delight your brilliant and ever-powerful Shakti Heart!
