Spring Retreat led by David Good & Laura Foster

Health, Meditation

Spring is the time of renewal and there is nothing more soul-gratifying than a 7-day retreat that allows you to unplug from your daily life. Breathe, stretch, unwind, recalibrate and indulge yourself in a level of soul nourishment like never before.  

This program marries David’s inspired approach to nurturing one’s soul through yoga with Laura’s passion for helping others to step into their deepest truth and greatest sense of self through her HeartSpark program.

Sacred time creates space for the emergence of your greatest self. In the busyness of your everyday, it can be difficult to hear, feel, connect and bear witness to what your soul knows to be true. This retreat will allow your heart and head connect in a way that you may have never experienced before and will leave you feeling grounded, connected and powerful in your being. 

 We are hosting this event at one of the finest yoga resort and retreat sanctuaries in the world. Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort is located in the foothills of Nosara and is a short walk from the world class surfing beaches of Guiones, Costa Rica. Bodhi opened its doors in 2014 for travelers that want to enjoy the magic of Costa Rica in a very unique and healthy way. It offers high-end accommodations, superb dining experience, world class yoga, gym, spa, juice bar and boutique. Utilizing its unique and tranquil setting in the Nicoya Blue Zone, Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort is the ideal spot to meet your desires of finding peace, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

About David Good: 

David believes yoga is a way to discover your hidden potential and find the truth of who you are, on and off the mat. 

David discovered yoga in his twenties in Vancouver. What began as an on-again-off-again relationship eventually grew into a life’s practice.  After many years of practicing with a stiffer body, David discovered the balance between flexibility and strength and how you need both.  His passion grew to marry the two into a practice that celebrates all the different bodies that showed up to practice.

David’s classes range in intensity and focus, from vigorous sequencing to supportive restorative work.  Offering rich alignment cues and heartfelt humour, David aims to create an inclusive environment that nurtures the soul and leaves students feeling like they’ve learned something about their bodies in the process.
