This is an invitation to embark on a powerful and fun adventure of discovery, growth and play as we decode and peel away the layers of conditioning and stress which have inhibited our innate freedom, pleasure, and full power. Together we will reclaim ancient wisdom practices taught in a modern and relevant way, so we may each flourish authentically as the unique, powerful beings that we are.
Join Nancy Goodfellow and Nayla Tawa for a seven day luxury adventure retreat in the pristine jungle-meets-beach town of Nosara, situated on the Pacific Coast of lush and warm Costa Rica. The land of eternal sunshine, warm clear ocean waters and green vibrant jungle landscape. Nosara is currently one of worlds top destination towns for amazing vacations, retreats and unforgettable getaways.
REJUVENATE, RELAX AND RECALIBRATE
This intimate (max. 13 guests) retreat takes place in a beautiful, luxurious and spacious villa just a short walk to Playa Guiones beach in the famous surf and Yoga town of Nosara. Our gorgeous villa set within a secure gated community, has a private pool and fully-equipped Yoga deck will be our safe haven to go deep into the transformational practice of breathwork and the holistic embodied movement practices of Yoga and Tantra. With many different accommodation options you'll have plenty of choices for your stay (Shared bunk rooms to Luxurious private room and bath). Together we will create a warm and close community feeling as we explore the powerful medicine of Conscious Connected Breathing, ancient Pranayama & Kundalini Kriyas (breathwork techniques based on Neuroscience), Tantra Vinyasa flow yoga and creative embodiment practices.
Nourishing our bodies, staying hydrated and feeling deeply satiated are a big part of our retreat experience. As we replenish our inner wellspring we will also feed our soul and take pleasure in vibrant, conscious eating that will not only be healthy, but also extremely delicious. After early morning Costa Rican organic coffee/tea/coconut water & fresh tropical fruits we will kick start our dynamic morning practice, followed by an abundant brunch with our incredible private chef. Evenings will be enjoyed together with delicious 3 course meals lovingly prepared in the villa by our chef, after enjoying perfectly crafted days full of exercise, adventuring, surfing and playing. We will also have a few nights out in the town at our favorite local restaurant spots.
Each day you'll be guided by not one, but TWO, professional, highly experienced and deeply connected teachers that will weave various breathwork techniques based in neuroscience, Tantra Vinyasa yoga, embodied movement and relaxation into 2 daily practices (mornings & afternoons). The flow of the week will be inspired and informed by nature's elements, ancient wisdom arts and modern practices for cultivating awareness, clarity, discernment and JOY! We will explore energetic practices while connecting with presence through the qualities within and around us. Building up our body vessel wellbeing on all levels: physical, mental and emotional, we will journey within and begin to release, redefine, and remember; coming home to our innate intuition and cultivating a sacred sense of empowerment, self-love, trust, vitality and authenticity.

About Nancy Goodfellow
Nancy is an Internationally-celebrated Yoga teacher, initiated Tantrika, breathwork facilitator and embodiment coach whose passion is to remind others of their innate beauty, wisdom and power. She began her Yogic studies in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition at a young age....drawn to the physically challenging yet deeply spiritual practice, she dove in with great dedication, passion & commitment, traits she is known to fully embody.
As a pioneer and lover of nature she moved to Costa Rica to follow her dream of living a more simple life while creating and running yoga hotels with her family.Yet it has been the challenge of overcoming one of life's greatest tragedies (she lost her first child in a car accident) that opened up the inner-door to her heart and has allowed Nancy to infuse and channel her teachings with great compassion, profound understanding, and love for the Mysterious and Unknown.
As a practicing & initiated Tantrika in the Sri Vidya tradition Nancy realized her natural feminine essence and loves guiding and working with women and couples towards their own true authentic self-expression and intimate connections. Through conscious sensuality practices she discovered the inner wellspring of creative energy & youthful vitality and feels called to share this grounded & empowered place with the world around her.
Her Tantra Vinyasa classes, a unique style which elegantly fuses creative and intelligent flow with her passion for Tantra and embodiment wisdom. They contain a myriad of elements including Tantric activation techniques, breathing practices, song & music in a modern and soulful alignment-based expressions of yogic art. Each class combines creative vinyasa sequences guided by the elements of nature,Tantric practices of Mantra (sacred sound & chant), visualization, and other techniques for awakening our inner fire and calming the mind, allowing us to expand our capacities and awareness on a multidimensional level.
She offers personal sessions, group classes, workshops, Yoga teacher trainings, and retreats all over the world, but is based in Costa Rica where she lives with her 2 children and runs a successful yoga studio.
About Nayla Tawa
“You are the most sophisticated tool you have!”
Nayla Tawa is a master breathwork coach, as well as yoga, meditation and resilience teacher. She is also a world explorer, snowboarder, and filmmaker.
Having trained in breathwork and meditation directly under Himalayan Masters and world renowned yoga teachers, as well as from top Neuroscientists, she has a well rounded understanding of the power of breath and mind control.
Nayla herself survived a near death experience, in which she broke most of her body. As life as she knew it came to a sudden stop, she was forced into a journey of struggle, pain, patience, and determination. She had a choice to make: Evolve or Dissolve!
This led Nayla to intimately understand the strength of the human body, and the inner workings of the mind and emotions. It was during this time that Nayla first discovered the power of breath and how underused this vital tool is within modern society.
Nayla feels most alive in the extreme outdoors, and finds great parallel with the lessons learned from nature and pushing one’s comfort zone, and the inner teachings of mindfulness.
Her experiences with trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression, combined with her extensive training and certifications give Nayla a unique ability to truly connect with others. She compassionately guides her students to navigate the inevitable emotional fluctuations of being human, to push their limits, and to discover the magic that awaits just on the other side of fear.
Nayla splits her time between Lake Tahoe, CA. and the jungles of Costa Rica.
