light your life
february 11th-18th, 2023
light your life
The time is now. To light your life. Step into the fullest version of yourself as we embark into a week of transformation, connection, relaxation and exploration. Join our tribe of seekers on a mission to elevate ourselves and the world.
We are all a brilliant source of light, tenderness, and love. And at different times, we all need support to brighten that light or even bring it back to life. This 8th annual iLa retreat is just that. A week of practicing and supporting what is light-giving to each of us; living from the center of ourselves in this magical place of sunshine, waves, and pure living.
iLa Retreat Costa Rica is a carefully curated week of our favorite life-giving experiences here in Nosara. Since 2008 we have explored this land and shared in this community. In 2014 we brought our first retreat to Nosara and are grateful to be sharing this iLa Retreat with you today. Below are elements of our retreat, and are some of our favorite things to experience in this magical place.

It is as simple as planting a tree. At iLa Retreats we believe in giving back. By planting trees we actively contribute to the beauty and preservation of beautiful Costa Rica.

what to expect
iLa Retreats allow for the time it takes to step out of your routine and into the magic of experience, ceremony, and intention. We have designed a week intended for you to access what needs attention in your life. We deliver the tools needed to greet that place with grace and excitement. This week is for you. We take care of the planning, yet everything is optional. Allow us to empower your most authentic experience.
BREATHE RELAX EXPLORE
The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort blends seamlessly into the natural landscape, with grounds designed to inspire an at home feeling in harmony with nature. The cleansing element of water is abundant; soothing fountains, tranquil waterfalls, saltwater infinity pool and outdoor showers. Stone paths guide you through the local fauna on your way to your bungalow. Open the door to find modern Balinese furnished bungalows, luxurious linens and a canopied bed that promises a well-deserved rest.
Security staff is available 24 hours a day and housekeeping staff will keep your room looking as beautiful as the first day you arrive.
