New Year “Embodiment Training”

December 29, 2019 - January 4, 2020

New year “embodiment training”

Reset, Renew, Grow 

with Elizabeth Flynn and Chirriposa Retreats

December 29, 2019 – January 4, 2020

“Step into 2020 feeling refreshed, healthy and transformed, with a once in a lifetime chance to start your New Year in the mountains, jungle, and beach of Costa Rica practicing yoga, connecting with nature and tapping into the sacred wisdom of your body, mind, and soul.” EF

Join Elizabeth Flynn and Chirriposa Retreats for 12 transformational days in Costa Rica.

As we move forward into a New Year and New Decade, the Embodied Transformation 2020 retreat will reset, renew and set the intention for deep metamorphosis and growth.

Start your new year shedding the old and setting yourself free, unleash yourself from limits and immerse yourself in nature for a refreshing and clear beginning.

The Embodied Transformation retreat will be an exciting journey, the perfect way to kickstart 2020 with an authentic passion for living.

After arriving in San Jose, the group will set off on their pilgrimage, beginning in the Chirripo Mountains and then heading to the wild, remote and beautiful Osa Peninsula, one of the most biodiverse places on this planet, for a chance to connect deeply with authentic self, passion, and purpose.

Twice daily yoga, combined with meditation, breathwork, journaling, circling and storytelling, as well as Earthing, relaxation, and fire ceremonies, will bring you out of your head and into your heart, connecting you with your intuition and unleashing the free, whole, human within.

Delicious healthy flexitarian meals, unlimited juice, infusions, and healing practices will complement your transformational journey, to leave you feeling your best and highest self for the rest of the year.

THE CHIRRIPO MOUNTAIN:The ‘Chirripo’ is the highest peak in Costa Rica at 3800 meters (12,500 feet). It is located in the ‘San Isidro’ valley and forms part of the Chirripo National Park. Our mountain retreat is situated below the park on the ‘Chirripo’ and ’Talari’ Rivers at an altitude of around 1500 meters (5000 feet) near the small village of ‘Canáan de Rivas’.

‘FINCA MIA’ Mountain Lodge and Yoga Retreat Centre:“Few times in life, you visit a place where the energy makes your heart sing. It might be down to the view, the flora and fauna, or the warmth of its people. ‘FINCA’ has all of these things.”

Situated at the base of the Chirripo Mountain Reserve, Finca is a rustic, cozy jungle retreat, offering many amenities for travelers, who are seeking an experience that goes far beyond just being a visiting tourist.

Shared meals in the kitchen long-house create an intimate, community feel. If you’re looking for something unique, an experience that is full of warmth, opportunity for self reflection and insight, and restful rejuvenation, Finca is your refuge.

The clear, emerald waters of the river fill the air with the sound of rushing water. Huge, mossy boulders dot the river. And along the river’s banks, life grows abundant in this rugged, jungle atmosphere. Stepping stone paths criss-cross the forest, and as you stroll to your private abode, fragrant flowers scent your journey, and colorful birds dart about.

The cabinas dotting the paths look like fairy palaces. Our hosts cultivate the organic gardens, which provide some of the fruits and vegetables for the guests. Meals are prepared fresh daily with local ingredients to cater to diverse tastes and diets.

Finca is a place to go M.I.A. from your daily routines. Feel cradled in the arms of the Chirripo Mountain. Truly melt away, as the Rio Talari flows through your soul, sweeping out the cobwebs. Breathe in the sweet mountain air, bringing freshness and vitality. Finca is a cherished space for many, and it is an honor to share this magical gem with you.


The ‘Osa’ is located at the most southern tip of Costa Rica, close to the Panama border, and at the entrance to the ‘Corcovado National Park’. The Osa Peninsula is home to the largest concentration of animal and plant species outside of the Amazon Rainforest, and hosts more than half of all species in the country and is listed in National Geographic’s top five naturist destinations.

‘FINCA EXOTICA’ Jungle Eco Lodge and Yoga Retreat Centre :Exotica is an ecolodge located on Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. More than a hotel, it offers a unique, social and inspirational experience in the heart of the jungle. Outstanding and romantic views, buzzing wildlife and a friendly & peaceful environment. Finca Exotica is a haven, where time stands still… and nature takes over.​

Surrounded by Primary forest and bordering Corcovado National Park, we offer outstanding opportunities to observe Costa Rica’s rich wildlife. Swimming, boogie-boarding, hiking, horse-riding, kayaking… it is our pleasure to organise tours and trips to suit your needs.

Exotica is ideal for travellers looking to spend time reconnecting in nature and enjoying the luxury of being unavailable. Photographic enthusiasts, families and eclectic eco-travellers can look forward to spending time completely relaxing in nature or enjoying some of the many activities and tours you would expect to find in a tropical “Shangri-Lah”.​

Guests can enjoy meals at a long communal table where they can share healthy, organic and ‘farm to table’ dishes with ingredients sourced locally and harvested from the exotic food forest, becoming a melting pot of creativity and inspiration

Exotica is a sustainable eco lodge, built on the foundations of land preservation, organic food production, sustainable building, community outreach, and education programs for guests and locals. The environmental impact of this farm is constantly under review by experts and the local staff to minimize our ecological footprint.


During your stay, enjoy activities such as surfing, SUP, kayaking, river and nature walks, horseback riding, bird watching, tree climbing, waterfall repelling or paragliding in some of the most beautiful locations imaginable. Other services include various forms of bodywork and spa treatments.


Indulge in healthy, inspiring, delicious dishes, incorporating a wide selection of organic and locally sourced ingredients. Both our lodges will provide a culinary experience that will nourish, satisfy and make your Costa Rica yoga retreat as perfect as nature intended.
