PSA- So many exciting things on the horizon for us here at YBC but most of them are top secret for now! I can tell you that we are putting together the finishing touches to our subscription boxes and believe me, if you haven't ordered yours yet, you're gonna want to get in on it while you can! I am so excited about the brands we have partnered with and know that if you love the natural beauty, health and wellness industries, you are going to love this box!
Ah! Can't believe we were just in beautiful Costa Rica just a week ago! Such incredible people, weather, food, and things to do! I had a wonderful time and I think the retreat participants did as well! We started our week off in the jungle and visited La Fortuna for a zipline tour and a horseback ride at the base of the Arenal Volcano. Zip lining was amazing - and terrifying. At first, I was almost second guessing whether or not I'd really follow through and go. But I told myself I had to do it, and I am so glad I did. Each line got higher and longer and by the end it felt like you were on a mile long track through the jungle among the toucans and monkeys. Crazy!
The horseback riding was also an adventure. I had this one eyed old horse named Pirata. I really wasn't sure about him, but he was a great ol' guy- super calm, and steady.
Our surf lessons were in Tamarindo. I had a blast the first day, but got knocked down by a huge wave toward the end and felt a bit out of it so went easy the next few days.
Swag bags are always a hit and this time around we featured:
- bags from My Other Bag
- Sweaty Betty water bottle
- Kharma Khare mat wipes
- This bar saves lives
- NuttZo 2go packs
- Glee Gum
- Yoga Strap
- Rootology breathe free
- Lotus Wei serum
- Kaia bamboo cleansing cloths
We did yoga mornings and most evenings, and did a combo of vinyasa and gentle restorative to keep balance. Here's a little highlight reel, if you'd like to see. And here's an instructional yoga video I shot the day before the students arrived if you'd like to practice with me in Costa Rica.
Heads up! We'll be announcing summer and fall retreats very soon. Get on the list if you want first dibs!
