Reclaim Your Body's Wisdom

A Spiritual Wellness Retreat

Regain Your Full Potential for Self-Care, Joy, Compassion, and Creativity

March 30 - April 6, 2024 in Costa Rica

Are you struggling to experience true happiness and fulfillment?

It may feel like something inside you is holding you back and preventing you from fully engaging in life.

But what if there was a way to release this hidden discomfort and embrace a newfound sense of openness and inner freedom?

If this sounds intriguing, we invite you to join us at our upcoming Reclaim Your Body’s Wisdom retreat!

Many of us don’t realize that this internal resistance or holdback often stems from emotional and psychological patterns picked up in your past. And these patterns are often stored in your body.

Imagine going on a journey that allows you to shed these unneeded burdens, gain a deeper understanding of your body’s patterns, and emerge feeling more harmonious, connected, and energized.

No matter where you are in life right now, Reclaim Your Body’s Wisdom offers a safe space to step away from your daily routines, reconnect with your true self, and access the wisdom, strength, and blessings of your body.

What Will You Experience?

Prepare for an incredible 7-day adventure of healing, connection, and savoring every moment… 

All while being immersed in the stunning natural beauty of Costa Rica.

On any given day at Reclaim Your Body’s Wisdom, you can expect to be nourished and supported in your journey of self-discovery.

The retreat will include the following vital elements – all carefully crafted to make your retreat experience as transformative as possible.

Practices that Energize and Uplift Your Soul

Throughout the retreat, we will include practices to cultivate the natural flow of energy in your body and being.

Our yoga and meditation offerings will include:

  • Yoga and movement for all bodies
  • Myofascial release (for trauma)
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Somatic techniques and Subconscious Imprinting
  • Healings with reiki and other energy modalities

You’ll learn how to use these powerful practices for healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Our expert facilitators will guide you through each practice with care so you can tap into your own energy and potential in a way that is both safe and supportive.

With these tools in hand, you’ll be ready to bring balance back into your life… while also deepening your connection to yourself and opening your heart to those around you.

Life-Changing Personal Explorations

Once or twice a day, we’ll come together for a group activity that combines teaching and personal exploration of a specific topic.

We will explore how your body’s reflexive patterns shape your experience of life’s events…

Learn tools for managing stress

Practice mindful communication skills

Discover new ways to nurture yourself

And create a self-care plan that can be used upon returning home.

We’ll also cover topics like:

  • Emotional awareness
  • Healing past wounds
  • Developing more authentic relationships
  • Reclaiming inner joy
  • Nurturing your strengths
  • Exploring your soul purpose
  • Establishing healthy boundaries
  • Cultivating an inspired and creative mindset
  • How to find your flow and connect with spirit

In addition, you’ll have plenty of time for self-reflection and journaling throughout the retreat to integrate all your new knowledge and personal insights.

Meaningful Connection with Others

At this retreat, you’ll be part of a community of like-minded individuals

Together, we’ll share our collective experiences and knowledge, practice mindful communication and body awareness, and learn from each other’s successes and misadventures.

By creating a supportive environment of connection and understanding, you can let go of self-judgement and feelings of isolation. Instead, finding ways to honor yourself and your gifts, and what only YOU can bring to the world.

We’ll close each inspiring day by holding sacred soul ceremonies and healing circles in the evening – including a dance party. 💃🏽

Deep Healing to Unleash the Inner YOU

You will experience powerful emotional and somatic healing and transformation as we guide you through a deep inner journey throughout our 7 days together.

We believe the path to fulfillment in your professional and personal life is through the spiritual nurturance of all parts of yourself – even the ones you may have consciously or unconsciously hidden from yourself.

Our goal is to pull back the layers that have been covering up your full potential, allowing your natural joy and enthusiasm to shine through.

This will be more than just a retreat experience… you will gain an entirely new awareness of yourself and the power that lies within you.

Be prepared to come home a lighter, more energized version of yourself – fully aligned with your passion and purpose!

“I would not only recommend [the retreat] for other [professionals], but I will return myself to get more of it because I felt like it really resonated with me. It nourished my soul, and I think it would be a good practice to continue so I can keep implementing it and reinforcing what I learned.”

~ Tenesa J.

“I’m so grateful that you guys held this retreat – this was incredible and amazing!”

~ L. M.

“Raluca is a spiritual healer. Her ability to just know what is going on blows me away. She was able to uncover an emotional root that I wasn’t even aware of, nor would I have been able to figure out on my own. Once we started talking about what she uncovered it began to make more sense, and acknowledging these hidden feelings really let me release what I was holding on to and suffering from. She really does have a 6th sense and is an amazing healer. I would recommend her to anyone who is searching for someone who can really help and guide you.”

~ K.L.


We’ll be staying at a luxury private villa in Nosara, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and tropical forest.

All rooms at the resort are equipped with AC and designed for comfort and ultimate relaxation.

You have a choice of staying in a single room alone, or bringing a friend and staying with a roommate.

The resort is a 10-minute walk to the local beach – which is excellent for swimming in the ocean or simply soaking in the magnificent view.

You can also visit the resort’s private, guests-only pool for some well-deserved downtime.

What Past Participants Are Saying

“I think this [retreat] is a must-do. I feel so, not only recovered, but I feel renewed. And I feel like this could actually change the trajectory of my life.”

~ Shelley W.

“This retreat helped me let go of my over-reliance on external roles and accolades, and re-discover what I really needed and wanted. Since coming home, I’ve been able to start asking for the whole meal in my life, instead of just accepting scraps like I was doing before”

~ M. B.

“I can’t believe how good the retreat was! The food was good, the resort was good, the lectures were good, the people were good. The lectures gave me so many bite-sized nuggets of valuable information and tools I can use in my everyday life.”

~ Dr. A.

“I reconnected to some deeper parts of myself on this retreat. Parts I had locked away because they weren’t considered ‘normal’ or ‘acceptable’ at the time. I could feel a greater alignment within myself after the retreat, but I was surprised when my husband turned to me and said, ‘I haven’t seen these parts of you since before you started medical school. I thought they didn’t exist anymore. I thought you had just matured out of them somehow.’

~ Delia

“[At the retreat] I learned how to become more self-aware, how to manage emotions that contribute to burnout, and practices that are going to improve my self-care so I can enjoy my profession better, longer, and help more patients.

~ Sandy R.

Tell me about yourself used to be such a hard question. I had nothing to say, and just reflexively listed all the things I did and the roles I played: physician, specialist, mother, committee member, etc. Never did I list what I liked and what I was passionate about. This retreat allowed me to introduce myself in a different way, not by my roles and accomplishments, but by what I’m passionate about and what I enjoy doing. Now I tell people I love art and I love dance and that I’m passionate about personal development and spiritual integration. That is life changing.”

~ Rana M.

Meeting Raluca was a gift from above. Literally. The massage techniques are incredible and you can tell it’s also an energy massage. I also practiced subconscious imprinting with her and it completely changed my life vision. I was able to forgive and make peace with parts of the childhood trauma thanks to Raluca’s gift. She was able to help me tap into energetic fields and to make changes in my daily mentality without any effort. Maybe it sounds crazy but sometimes I wonder is she’s a fairy Godmother because everything she touches changes for the better.

~ M.G.
