A Retreat to Recharge, Reconnect & Nourish Your Body & Soul


If you are ready to embrace a healthier and more balanced life while experiencing a sense of renewal and transformation in mind, body, and spirit, then join us in Costa Rica for 5 days of rejuvenation in the midst of the sheer beauty of Planet Earth.

At the first signaling of daybreak and with the varied sounds that nature offers, you awaken on what is the first morning of your stay in Costa Rica. You anticipated this moment, planned for it, and now it is time to experience it. As if in a rush against time, you hurriedly dress up and exit your room to get that first glance, that first peek, to savor your first moment.

The cool, gentle morning breeze coming directly from the Gulf of Nicoya stops you on your tracks even before you can peruse the grounds. You take a deep breath, exhale, and then momentarily lose yourself at the sight of such awesome natural beauty! It’s as if your sensory systems were on overdrive and needed some time to process, to filter everything going on around you.

Within just a few minutes of being exposed to the majestic mountain landscape and breathtaking ocean views, you begin to reconnect with yourself, to calm the mind, and experience peace and tranquility you’ve lacked for months on in. And then, as if in a moment of pure bliss, you become overjoyed with excitement as you come to the realization that your stay here is just beginning!

You’ve made it, you’re here, and life begins anew…

There comes a time when finding respite from the craziness of everyday life is no longer an option, but a necessity.

This retreat is YOUR sanctuary to recalibrate your mind in an oasis of calm and experience transformation that permeates with new possibilities.
  • Rekindle your passion for life through a full reboot and recharge! Decompress from the burdens and demands of daily life and feel relaxed and refreshed.
  • Allow yourself to let go by learning to release the stress and angst that wears you down and feel confident in your ability to sustain your inner peace.
  • Experience being in the present moment and learn to let negative emotions flow, allowing space for forgiveness and self-care.
  • Learn to treat yourself with kindness and compassion to live with self-acceptance and a healthier self-esteem. Let’s get to working on the best version of you!
  • Learn how to nourish your body with healthy, natural foods cooked with love and intention to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

It is easy to lose yourself with the constant pull of responsibilities in everyday life.

Between meeting the demands of your career and balancing out your personal life, there just doesn’t seem to be any time for self-care, for self-nourishment. In time, this self-neglect catches up to us and a retreat from this constant toil is no longer something we can put off. If this resonates with YOU, then the time to act is NOW. YOUR overall wellbeing and wholeness is always the right investment!

Costa Rica is a Central American country nestled between Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. Despite its small size, the country shelters 5 percent of the existing biodiversity in the entire world. Its rugged and exotic landscape with expansive river systems, volcanoes, rainforests, beautiful beaches and abundant wildlife make this a unique world destination bound to incite all of your senses!

We will be spending four glorious nights in the Alajuela Province, Town of El Salvador at the Vida Mountain Resort & Spa. This gorgeous resort truly provides for a magical getaway in the scenic mountains of Costa Rica. As you delight your eyes taking in all of the raw natural beauty, from the lush, green vegetation that surrounds you with the perfect vantage point of the Gulf of Nicoya at a distance, to the sight of a Keel Billed Toucan or Yellow Throated Toucan flying by, you can truly relish in the peace and tranquility that come with being immersed in nature.

Do you feel a need to slow down, regather yourself, and breathe?

Then this is the place that YOU need to be!

Imagine a restful sleep to awaken to the sounds of cheerful birds singing outside of your door, the first caress of that cool mountain breeze as you take your first steps outside of your room, a peaceful walk down a nature trail to then refresh in the infinity pool with an exhilarating natural view to suit, to then dry down and take a short walk to have a scrumptious, healthy breakfast in the midst of friends and in paradise. Seriously, why should we defer our happiness and joy to a later day? YOU are a thousand times worth it!

An exquisite dining experience with each and every meal is a must to keep you fueled and happy as you undergo deep transformation. With every meal you will enjoy a fusion of classic Costa Rican regional dishes and traditional American cuisine, with a few international culinary favorites. All meals are prepared with seasonal and local produce, including ingredients from the resorts organic garden. The breads are baked on site and served fresh daily. To top it all off, you get to experience these scrumptious meals in an open-air restaurant which provides a magical ambiance where you can truly sit back and savor every single bite.

Some of the culinary delights that you could be experiencing on this trip include the following:

Falafel bowl with roasted Tahini sauce, fresh vegetables, and baby corn

Buddha bowl with lentils, sautéed kale, homemade sauerkraut, and roasted sweet potatoes and pumpkin seeds

Rainbow salad with raw shredded vegetables, mock sunflower pate, and fresh dill

Planted based French toast, caramelized bananas with fresh ginger and cinnamon, plus maple honey syrup

And healthy sweet treats like…

White chocolate cashew tart

Vegan chocolate mousse

Do you have dietary restrictions? No worries.

The resorts kitchen staff can happily accommodate special requests as it caters to many different dietary requirements and restrictions, such as vegetarian and vegan, as well as gluten and lactose intolerances. We have your every need covered.

Have isolation and enclosure filled you with stress and a feeling of disconnection from yourself and Mother Earth? Through the gift of forest bathing or therapy, you will reconnect with nature, allowing you to reap the physical, emotional, and psychological benefits that it offers.

By increasing your awareness of the natural elements and being intentional about engaging all of your senses, you will emerge refreshed, relaxed, and renewed, ready to go back into your busy world more energetic and effective than ever!

Struggling with issues of self-acceptance and a sense of not being enough? Across many cultures, the purifying and healing effect of water has been used to communicate the sacred value of life. In your visit to the Las Musas Waterfalls, you will wander through forest trails, explore Mother Nature, and take in the sheer beauty of five different waterfalls with stunning views and breathtaking cascades.

Have you experienced deep hurts and find it difficult to regulate your emotions? Through the learning of mindfulness techniques, you’ll experience the transmutation of emotional energies, which will lead to increasing your ability to regulate emotions and decreasing stress and anxiety. These teachings will allow you to experience true transformation as you create the best version of yourself.

Do you have this innate desire to be healthier but your daily habits and routines get in the way of that? During our time together, you will learn how to properly nourish your body with fresh, natural foods cooked with love and intention to feel confident and empowered in your ability to be healthy. Through our vegetarian cooking class you will create and prepare a fusion of exotic dishes and traditional Costa Rican cuisine with a talented local chef. You will then enjoy this feast with an awesome community of folks.

Are you riddled with stress and anxiety given the heavy demands placed on you daily? Through the energy healing technique of Reiki, you will experience a rechanneling of healthy energy through the body to return to a state of relaxation and heal from the damage brought on by stress. This spiritual practice is linked to a wide range of physical and emotional health benefits, like experiencing better sleep and improved mood.

Do you feel like you are out of balance in life, off center, and need more harmony from within? Through our workshop focused on the concept of Dharma, you will learn to embrace the essence of who you are and by discovering your life’s purpose improve the quality of your life by living more harmoniously and peacefully. These teachings will provide you a more efficient way to navigate life and better equip you to make wise, sound choices.

As if the serenity and tranquility provided by the majestic landscape surrounding the resort was not enough, the resort houses a Spa & Steam Room with a variety of rejuvenating treatments accompanied by herbal water, tea, candles, aromatherapy and relaxing music. With a focus on healing and beauty, the spa offers a host of different massages from Swedish, deep, hot stone, among many others, to facials, manicures, pedicures, and body wraps. This is YOUR time for self-care!

So often we place more emphasis on taking care of others and making sure their needs are met that we neglect our own. This can apply to our responsibilities at work as in our personal lives. Are you tired, stressed, worn down, and just simply exhausted of the routine, the constant “I need to do this…” or “I need to do that…”? Then YOU need to act NOW!

It is often said that it is considered to be madness to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. Give yourself a break, respite from the daily routine, be exposed to and learn new things. What do you have to lose but another day of the same toil, the same burden, the same inability to gather yourself and breath? Paradise is waiting for YOU! All you need to do is grant yourself the opportunity to BREATHE again.

I’m ready.

This retreat was designed with YOUR specific needs at this present time in mind and carefully planned out to allow for the restoration and revitalization that you expressly need.

The peace and tranquility that you will experience upon arrival in this Costa Rican Oasis will undoubtedly inspire and reinvigorate you, something that you have been longing for but did not think was achievable just days prior.

There is really no country, no place, quite like Costa Rica in the entire world. This country is beaming with life all around and the local people are so incredibly welcoming and hospitable that you feel as if you’ve made it home. The natural beauty abounds from the majestic volcanoes like Arenal and Poas to the spectacular ecological parks like Corcovado and Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve. Nothing is as grounding and healing as being immersed in nature and removed from the typical concrete and asphalt facades of the modern city. On the flight in to San Jose, as you take your first peek outside of your airplane window, you’ll experience firsthand the ruggedness of the landscape with the city ringed by lush green mountains and valleys.

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the country of Costa Rica has instituted specific entry requirements that must be observed. As part of their travel policy, all tourists must complete a mandatory Health Pass within 72 hours of arriving into the country. Vaccinated tourists must attach the vaccination certificate to the Health Pass. Given the changing nature of entry requirements into the country due to COVID-19, it is suggested that you contact and coordinate with a travel advisor prior to taking your flight into Costa Rica. We are also available to answer any travel related questions that you may have upon registration to the retreat.

Sign up now and say YES to your next chapter in life!

There is no question that this retreat is designed with YOU in mind! From the flight into San Jose, the scenic drive into the resort, and that first magical impression of the grounds that you’ll be staying in, transformation and restoration have already begun taking root. Transformation requires not only calm and serenity but a certain level of intimacy that you cannot get in the average retreat center. In this intimate setting nestled in the mountains, you’ll experience excellent accommodations, delight in exquisite dining, partake in transformative activities aimed at self-enrichment and empowerment, and spend time with a positive, supportive group of people. What are you waiting for?

This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for.

About Caesar

What drives me to get up in the morning? To be of service to my family, friends, and community by living a life of purpose and meaning with the driving force behind it all being my faith and spiritual grounding. Having experienced a wide range of ups and downs in life both personally and professionally, the past ten years or so have been somewhat of a transformation, a reset, and a path to finding myself and what truly matters the most to me. Through it all, it has taken a number of transformative figures in my life to really hit that reset button and charter a new path, a better path, a more fulfilling path. That path has materialized in the co-founding of Inspire A Movement, Inc., a health and wellness company founded on the principles of spirituality, healing, forgiveness, self-love, and gratitude. This has opened doorways to establishing a YouTube Channel series, certifying as a yoga instructor, launching a new podcast, and a life dedicated to helping others be the best version of themselves.
