Yoga & Fitness with Jess and Colleen
Practice. Presence. Pura Vida.
What a year we’ve all had! This retreat was planned for April 2020 and was sold out. Then we rescheduled for last July. Then, well, you know the rest! We refunded everyone 100% and put our retreats on hold. For over a year now, we’ve practiced online, took care of our health, and rode out the storm. Finally we feel comfortable getting retreats back on the schedule. Your safety is our primary concern and with so much in flux, we will be adjusting protocols as necessary. For now, the intention is for all staff to be vaccinated and for us to uphold the safety standards set by the CDC and Ministry of Health in Costa Rica. Please inquire if you have additional questions or concerns.
Get back to fun in 2021 with a 6-day Yoga & Fitness Retreat in Costa Rica July 17-22. Jess and Colleen are collaborating on this blissful yoga retreat with intentions for you to feel inspired to awaken your inner self in a beautiful setting. After such turmoil, this is an amazing opportunity for you to dive back into the practice of yoga and mediation in order to rediscover your own tranquility and strength. Tap into your resilience on and off your mat.
Each day you will be offered a variety of yoga and fitness classes. While this retreat will be a great opportunity to deepen your practice, you will also have the chance to disconnect from the Covid routine and immerse yourself into the local culture and beautiful surroundings of this wonderful country. In addition, the food is amazing, the people are friendly and pretty soon you’ll be living the “pure vida” lifestyle that makes Costa Rica so wonderful.
Furthermore, you can customize your experience by joining excursions like kayaking, hiking and surfing and still have plenty of time to go to the beach or chill by the pool. Zero planning needed on your part, just sign up and have fun! You will be staying in the luxurious at the Santarena Hotel in the wonderful community of Las Catalinas. This coastal town is right on the Guanacaste coast and is less than an hour from Liberia International Airport. Weather patterns for July are similar to Hawaii, so get ready for a tropical getaway!
We can’t wait to see you here in paradise!

You have an amazing staff for your Yoga & Fitness retreat:
Jess is an 500hr e-ryt Yoga instructor and a Board Certified Holistic Nutrition Coach. Her passion is to help people be the best possible version of themselves. She empowers people to make good, educated and fulfilling decisions to feel their best!
After a move to Suburban Philadelphia, Jess took her first yoga class at Verge Yoga in Wayne, PA and was hooked. Not long after, she joined the 200hr YTT program at Verge Yoga and the transformation began. She knew from this moment that she had to pay it forward to others.
Jess currently teaches in Downtown Fredericksburg and provides yoga instruction along with meditation/mindfulness coaching to the Varsity Athletes at The University of Mary Washington. In short, she is living a passionate and empowered life.
“If this sounds like something you would consider doing for yourself, let’s take this trip together. It would be an honor to embark on this journey with you!”
Colleen found her way into her first yoga class in 2006 and never looked back. Her weekly practice turned into a daily practice as she felt the benefits both physically and mentally. She decided to deepen her practice by studying and earning her 200 hour Yoga Alliance teaching certificate at Verge BodyMind studio in Wayne, PA in 2011.
Although her initial intention was to deepen her own understanding and practice of yoga and meditation, she felt a deeper calling to share her practice and help others find the same space, stillness, and balance.
When not on her mat or in the yoga studio teaching, Colleen enjoys the outdoors and living an active healthy lifestyle. Tennis is her other passion and loves being near the beach! She enjoys getting together with friends over a great meal and wine.
“Life is too short, and should be lived to the fullest! Hope to see you on your yoga mat soon! Namaste”
