Our Retreat Instructors



Located in one of the world’s five blue zones (i.e., longevity hotspots) Nicoya Costa Rica, Blue Spirit Retreat Center provides an extraordinary experience to all who are dedicated to longevity and wellness, personal development, and environmental sustainability. Perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and a 3-mile-long white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge – Blue Spirit offers an unforgettably beautiful and natural setting on one of Costa Rica’s renowned white sand beaches embodying the simple “Pura Vida” Costa Rican lifestyle.

Retreat FAQs

We will meet at Blue Spirit, a one-of-a-kind longevity retreat center, located in Nicoya, Costa Rica, one of the world’s five blue zones. Your flights or ground transportation from/to Liberia International Airport (LIR) is not included in your ticket price, but a shuttle or taxi for ground transportation can be arranged separately with Blue Spirit. You can find more info and also directly book here. For more answers to FAQs directly from the retreat center, please click here.

We’ve structured the retreat to be suitable for both newer and experienced yogis. Adjustments will be suggested for all levels, in particular during our more vigorous power yoga practices so everyone is welcome!

Weather is unpredictable and we make no guarantees, but according to our research, July can be a great month for Nosara weather. Although it’s the third month of Costa Rica’s seven-month rainy season, a weather phenomenon called veranillo (“little summer”) means sunny days can dominate for weeks. The average maximum daytime temperature in Nicoya in July lies at 32.0°C (89.6°F) and the average minimum temperature goes down to around 22.5°C (72.5°F).

Blue Spirit Retreat Center has a variety of spacious and beautiful practice spaces both indoor and outdoor. Subject to weather conditions, we intend to utilize a variety of options since most likely our group will be the only guests on site during the retreat. Get ready for some epic views!

We’re currently expecting a full buyout of the retreat center (so hopefully all guests during our stay are part of our community!) which would mean around 70-80 participants. Please don’t worry about the larger group size – we are adding staff and small group events to make sure you feel a strong sense of community even with the larger group size.

In addition to clothes, toiletries, and other things you would normally pack for a trip like this, we recommend you bring the following: passport, travel and medical Insurance cards, beach-towel (Blue Spirit only provides pool towels), tote bag, yoga clothes, flip flops, bathing suit, light sweaters or wraps for cooler nights, closed toe shoes (if hiking or running), alarm clock, sunscreen, sun hat, water bottle, natural bug repellent, mobile charger, your special medication, a light raincoat or rain-poncho, and jeans for horseback riding (if you book this as a separate excursion, not included in your ticket price). We recommend bringing a flashlight, if you are staying in an eco-cottage or a tent.

All yoga mats and props will be available at the hotel so no need to bring if you’d rather not!

Rooms will generally be available for check in at 4:00 PM. Check out is at 10:00 AM.

Tax and tip for all group meals, classes and activities are included in your ticket price so no need to tip separately after group meals, classes or activities. A gratuity of $80 for service staff is added at check-out as an optional charge for each person staying at Blue Spirit. You may opt out or decrease gratuity, your choice!

Lauren and Travis are hoping that the retreat can be an immersive experience for you to reconnect to your practice, reflect inwards and learn more about longevity and a simple lifestyle. So we recommend things like enjoying the beach or pool, journaling, walking/sitting meditation or just even rest during break times. Spa treatments are also available and you can sign up for any upon check-in (not included in ticket price, menu here). If you’re the adventurous type and are looking for more action, the resort offers a variety of excursions that you can sign up for upon check-in as well (more info here). Please note, to the extent you sign up for any personal excursions, it will be on your own dime and at your own risk.

This retreat is about taking care of yourself so please feel free to do what feels appropriate and best for your body, mind and spirit.

Your stay at Blue Spirit Costa Rica includes three delicious consciously prepared gourmet vegetarian meals a day focused on anti-inflammatory foods that promote longevity and wellness. Blue Spirit serves fresh locally sourced fish three evenings per week and eggs every morning along with breakfast; cheese is also regularly available while the buffet always provides vegan and gluten-free options. To accommodate food restrictions and allergies there is a Pure Food option, offering veggies, grains and legumes cooked without any seasonings or oils.

In summary, the food will consist of plenty of fresh and local plant-based cuisine with an occasional fish dish. Although it’s impossible to customize the menu to perfectly accommodate everyone’s individual requests, we will try to account for dietary restrictions and allergies so please make sure to note them during the registration process. Alcohol and blended drinks are not included with your ticket price but will be available onsite for separate purchase.

As far as we’re concerned, this retreat is ON! Please note, we are only human and there are always things outside of our reasonable control (such as boarders closing, acts of war & terrorism, natural disasters, etc.) that might require us to change plans, but that’s what travel insurance is for and this is a risk that you would have with any travel. So the answer is, whenever you feel comfortable.

Everyone’s situation is different and therefore it’s on you to research and confirm any visas or other travel documentation that might be required for you to enter Costa Rica based on your nationality, where you’re coming from, etc. Depending on your particular situation, you may need to apply for a visa, have COVID related documentation ready, have a valid passport (that doesn’t expire for 6 months after your scheduled departure), etc. Below is some information the retreat center has shared with us:


Citizen of the US, Canada, and Panama may enter Costa Rica with a passport that remains valid at least 6 months after your travel date. Identification such as a driver’s license or birth certificate is no longer valid for travel to Costa Rica.

A valid passport allows Canadian, American, as well as most Latin American, and European citizens to stay for up to 90 days. Citizens of other countries may require a visa to enter Costa Rica.

Before you go to Costa Rica, please make a copy of your passport, which you will need to carry with you at all times. You should leave your original passport in the safety box at Blue Spirit.

Yes! Blue Spirit group shuttles run on Saturdays several times during the day from/to Liberia International Airport (LIR). It is a scenic two and a half-hour drive. The cost is $60 plus 13% tax per person each way, payable in cash or by credit card at the Blue Spirit reception. Upon request, booking a private taxi is possible but there is limited availability for this service.

You can find more info and also directly book these services here.

With the current state of affairs, we don’t expect to require official testing or proof of vaccination, of course, all subject to change depending on where the world is at closer to the retreat date! However, if you test positive before or during the retreat, you will not be allowed to attend and there are no refunds. We encourage you to purchase a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” trip insurance policy to protect yourself if this is a concern. Social distancing and mask wearing may be implemented (although currently, assuming rules & regulations stay the same, we intend to make mask wearing during classes optional).

Lastly, please note any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed while in attendance at the event.

Even in the rare instance that Inner Dimension TV needs to cancel or reschedule the retreat due to “acts of god” including Covid-19 related shut downs, we will only be able to refund ticket costs at most, and would not in any instance be able to compensate you for other costs, such as flights booked, etc. Due to this concern, we highly recommend that you purchase personal travel insurance.

We suggest that you include “cancel for any reason” with your policy and include medical coverage. Many insurance policies must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation so please prioritize accordingly. Some credit cards also come with travel insurance benefits which you might want to consider. Here is a helpful site to compare different policies based on your specific needs.

We don’t have a separate block for this but the retreat center has informed us that they will try to accommodate guest requests as much as they can. Please email us at [email protected] for any requests.

In order to secure the venue and programming, Inner Dimension TV is required to enter into binding contracts with 3rd parties that do not allow for refund or cancellation in any instance except for limited instances where “acts of god” render the entire event impossible. For example, if due to the COVID-19 pandemic worsening, Blue Spirit must close down, then we would be able to get a refund and refund all ticket holders. Otherwise, unfortunately, we must enforce a strict cancellation policy and there will be no refunds in any instance. You may transfer your ticket under certain conditions. Also, purchasing trip insurance to protect yourself is always a good idea.

You may transfer your ticket to another person up to 3-days before the retreat start date without penalty by emailing us at [email protected]. After that time, our strict cancellation policy applies.

Any balance remaining after payment of the initial deposit will be invoiced to you and due immediately three months prior to start of retreat, so expect an email from us with this bill sometime in April 2024. As noted above, we have a strict cancellation policy with no refunds (including for any deposits) so please make sure you have sufficient funds ready to pay any remaining balance at this time.

Yes! Just email us at [email protected] with a description of your partner’s needs (for example, partner would like to participate in meals but skip the yoga classes, etc.) and we can give you options that work for you.

This is possible! Each of you should still purchase a separate ticket if you intend to both participate in all aspects of the Retreat and send a note to [email protected] just noting that you would prefer one larger bed.

One of our goals at Inner Dimension TV is to expand the scope of offerings to better serve our community online and increasingly in-person as well. So look forward to some exciting announcements to come on future in-person retreats in addition to an annual summit! And of course, we recommend that you also practice with us online through your Inner Dimension TV subscription and Academy course registrations as well.
