The retreat was arranged by Blissed Yoga Retreats and the retreat was located at La Cusinga in Cosa Rica on the south west coast of Costa Rica. The travel to there a was long but entirely worth the effort and time. I’ve been to Costa Rica before but this trip was different and special. Different and special because of the people involved. It felt as if I had known everyone involved with the trip as in a previous life. Shannon led with amazing energy and the staff mirrored the relaxed and friendly nature of La Cusinga’s owner who took time to tell us the history of the property. The days were filled with meditation, yoga and local activities. The nights were filled with relaxing dinners, laughter, wonderful conversation and music…..unbelievable duets by Shannon and a surprise appearance by the bar tender who is a very accomplished guitarist. After the retreat I found myself living in the moment more enjoying each day as I was in it.
