Soul-Inspired Spring Yoga Retreat
led by David Good & Laura Foster

April 6-13,2019 in Nosara, Costa Rica
Laugh. Breathe. Pause. Appreciate.
Deepen your practice & your soul connection with yourself & others
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 self-care 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.  

This retreat will be all about soul nourishment … YOUR soul nourishment. These 7 days are your time and you decide what you feel drawn to “do” during your stay. Every aspect of your being has been considered when we chose Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort to host this event. 

The food, ocean, on-site spa, accommodations and physical placement of this retreat centre in Costa Rica are magical. Only consider this retreat if you are ready for a 7-day experience that is filled with laughter, lightheartedness, space, joy and possibility. Individuals, friends and couples are all welcome to attend. 


I have to say that this retreat week was the best thing I have ever done for myself.  To spend a week focusing only on my needs was incredible.  First of all the location was amazing.  The yoga studios were amazing, especially the outdoor space in the morning and evening, listening to all of the birds, the monkeys and looking out over the treetops.  I found Davids classes were a mix of everything, which was great.  Whether you are new to yoga or not, there was something for everyone and each class was different than the class before…This retreat combines self-care, camaraderie, personal growth with a small amount of challenge.  And fun and great food!

Thanks Laura and David for an awesome week!
Love Carolyn xoxo

Being a “newbie” to yoga, I was intimidated that it would be too advanced for me...Well, I was completely wrong in my thinking. Many of us were beginners and at no point did I feel less than. David is an amazing teacher with patience, experience and a great sense of humour! ....The other part of the retreat is Laura’s heart spark session. It is truly life changing and inspirational. It’s a time to let go and think about what you really desire and want out of life. It’s an incredible journey you’ll take in just one week but introduce them into your life for good....It truly is a magical place with great energy and amazing people. I can’t believe that I almost didn’t go because of insecurities and financial guilt. Free yourself of these thoughts and treat yourself to a week that you’ll never forget!

For currency conversion: 


I loved the step by step approach David took to explain the proper positioning for the yoga postures. Even though I do yoga regularly it certainly helped me. His soft spoken manner, sense of humor and smile made him a perfect person to lead us. The Heart Spark was an eye opener for me as how to take even better care of myself and therefore everyone around me benefits from the "better, happier, more positive me". 

It has only been 3 days but I have been smiling more, nagging less, [and] thinking positively....I have even set up my own little space for morning routine complete with a salt (candle) lamp, a little Buddha, a positive saying displayed and a healing stone. All in all, I am so happy that I had the opportunity to spend a week at such an inspiring retreat in a beautiful country and gorgeous resort.

A valid passport is mandatory to enter Costa Rica. For Canadians it is accepted a passport with a minimum of one day of validity from the entry date to Costa Rica. 


Soul Inspired.  That's a perfect explanation of how I feel after spending a week in Costa Rica with Laura Foster and our Yoga instructor, David Good.  It was such a great experience for both experienced Yogis and those that are beginners. Very few of us knew each other, but by the end of the week some new friendships were being formed. 

Each morning we leisurely gathered around the pool, to sip coffee or tea, chat, laugh and connect with each other. Then we headed off to learn how to effectively meditate then do some yoga. David was very patient as he taught us, and even had us smiling as we learned. In the middle of the day we were able do as we liked. Some tried surfing, some did zip lining, and others relaxed by the pool or went to the beach, just a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride....

As you can tell, I am so very glad that I made the decision to go.  If you are even considering doing this retreat, I would tell you to do it. You won't regret it.

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.
