This retreat is especially for women who wish to empower their inner Goddess nature and explore yoga, movement, and natural life art rituals in a safe container with like-hearted sisters. Maija, experienced yoga & life-art teacher, invites you to join her in the natural paradise of Arenal in Costa Rica for a week of inspiration, rejuvenation and joyful celebration.

What to expect?

Every morning we will start the day with a meditation and dynamic movement practice based on vinyasa yoga and inspired
by the elements of nature.
During the day you will have time to relax, reflect, journal, or enjoy a massage. On some days there will be an excursion planned, like a nature walk to a nearby waterfall for a purification ceremony.
In the late afternoon, during sunset, we will enjoy a deeply relaxing tantric yoga practice and meditation.
On the full moon night, we will engage in a special cacao ceremony around a bonfire, to reflect and share what is present in
our lives at this time, and what we want to manifest in our lives in the new year.
After the retreat, Maija will give you access to her online community with life and recorded sessions that will support you in maintaining your life-art practices back home.
What will you gain?

You will leave this retreat feeling inspired, rejuvenated and more connected to yourself and the world around you.
You will have new tools to maintain your personal practice at home and continue your journey of self-growth and expansion.
You will feel more sensual and in touch with your feminine soul, which will not only benefit yourself but also reflect joy and light on your personal environment and community around you.

Maija is originally from the Netherlands and she has been teaching yoga for over a decade. She is a 500 E-RYT and YACEP yoga teacher and Ayurvedic massage therapist. Vinyasa, hatha, slow flow and tantra yoga are styles that Maija loves to teach, always integrating breath-work and mediation in her classes. She has also developed a sensual yogic dance form called Shaktimotion.

In 2018 she left her modern western lifestyle to lead a nomadic life in closer harmony with Mother Nature. Ever since she has been developing what she calls ‘Natural Life-Art,’ a way of life that honors the divine feminine, synchronizes with the lunar and solar cycles, and taps into the elements of nature. Through her courses and retreats, she hopes to inspire you to live a more conscious and fulfilling life and spread more love and light in your own communities.

Apart from the global retreats that Maija has been leading, she also founded her own yoga & life art school, offering holistic yoga teacher training to a new generation of yoga teachers.
