Journey with Jessica from June 18-24, 2017 to beautiful Santa Teresa, Costa Rica for a one-of-a-kind experience fully devoted to nourishing your body, mind and spirit. 

This all-inclusive 7 day, 6 night retreat has been expertly designed to transform your well-being. Every detail has been thoughtfully and lovingly considered in order to create the most optimal environment for personal growth, reflection, nourishment, rejuvenation, and meaningful connection.

Due to the intimate nature of this unique experience, space is extremely limited.


I truly believe that YOU are amazing, and you deserve a unique retreat experience that reflects just that.  

As a yoga, fitness, and wellness educator for the last 16 years, it is my passion and personal mission to inspire and empower others to live their most fulfilling lives. 

Following many requests, it is with excitement that I announce the Be Nourished retreat, a yoga and wellness getaway set in the beautiful coastal town of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Every aspect of this all-inclusive, VIP-style retreat has been thoughtfully designed and customized to most optimally serve you on your personal wellness journey.  

Upon arriving to Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica, you'll be whisked away on a private plane along with your fellow retreat-goers (like the rockstars that you are!) to a small airport just outside of Santa Teresa. Following a short drive you'll arrive at our own dedicated wellness sanctuary, an intimate eco-friendly setting exclusively for our group, situated just a short one-minute walk from the sand. Nestled among the fruit trees and vegetation each 700+ square foot villa features a full kitchen, living room, spa-like bathroom, private outdoor relaxation area, complete with creature comforts like AC, WiFi, and cable.

Throughout your stay you'll be nourished physically with two yoga classes daily, in which you'll partake in various practices high among the trees on the yoga deck. You'll also have the opportunity to further your connection with nature during outdoor adventures, including standup paddle boarding (SUP) through mangroves and hiking to breathtaking waterfalls.

To support all of this mindful movement, you'll fuel your body optimally with a comprehensive raw food reset centered on reconnecting with and deepening our appreciation for food in it's purest state. All of the food throughout the retreat is raw, vegan and organic, and will be expertly prepared by a celebrity chef and tailored specifically to your personal preferences and dietary considerations. Please note this is NOT a juice-only cleanse, but rather healing, nutrient rich cuisine complemented with Ayurvedic practices to support optimal well-being.

You'll also have the opportunity to learn directly from the chef herself how you can confidently and joyfully prepare incredibly delicious raw dishes at home during our private 5-course interactive cooking class.

In addition, you'll be nourished mentally, emotionally, and spiritually throughout your 7 day stay with daily guided meditation alongside the ocean, group discussions, and dharma talks, before or after which you can reflect, decompress, and relax poolside or on the beach.

Costa Rica (specifically Santa Teresa) holds an extra special place in both my heart and my husband's heart, as it was there that we realized our immense love for one another during a backpacking trip through Central America years ago. Together we have lovingly designed this unique retreat experience as an opportunity to support and serve others in their own self-care and self-discovery.
