Dr. Betsy Rippentrop

Re-Wilding Retreat

Join Betsy Rippentrop for an inspirational and healing week at Blue Spirit, one of the foremost world-class yoga and meditation retreat centers in Costa Rica. Perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach– Blue Spirit offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting for your week.

We chose this lush tropical setting for many reasons including its unique healing energies, spectacular yoga halls, fresh and organic cuisine, on site holistic spa, infinity salt water pool and direct access to a quiet warm beach cove for swimming.

The theme of this week will turning to Mother Earth, or Gaia, as our healer. When we align with nature, we heal. All of us have blocks, whether they are physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Use this week of deep yoga practices, meditation, and internal inquiry to help you remove energy blocks, liberate trapped energy, reconnect mind and body & reawaken you true essence. A week like this promises deep transformation on every level.

We will practice every morning to energize our systems and open our hearts/minds. Most afternoons, we’ll return for a more gentle and reflective practice, drawing on healing methodologies from both psychology and yoga. In between, you can venture out to experience a cloud forest canopy zip line, waterfall hike, enjoy a massage, or simply rest by the pool with a good book.
