RESET & REBALANCE
RETREAT

LAKE ARENAL

Oriental graphic element

Sally Nilsson, Eric Kolesar and the rest of the Tula Vida horse and human team are offering this special retreat to support you in a resetting and rebalancing of your mind, body and spirit after the challenges of the past year. 

 

Just like a computer, sometimes we have to “switch off and on again” to start working better!  Let the vibrant nature surrounding Tula Vida soothe, nourish and restore you.  Rediscover your peace, vitality and sense of self.  Remember what real connection feels like.

Renew your mind, body and spirit!

Tula Vida horses live in a state of relaxed alertness, fully connected to their herd, free to play, rest and be fully themselves.  Imagine if we lived like this.

 

In this reflective workshop, you will join our extraordinary horses in their home - the vibrant green fields, rivers and rainforest near the Arenal volcano in Costa Rica – and experience becoming part of the herd, fully connected to yourself, the horses and the natural world. 

  • Join us and become part of the herd, feeling what it is like to be totally accepted, just as you are.

  • Explore creating relationship and connection with a sensitive being who has 56 million years of wisdom living together in harmony with his herd, his environment and the constantly changing world, able to process and let go of his emotions, release stress as it arises and get back into balance.

  • Learn tangible take-home tools to take this feeling back into your own life.

  • Cherish and nourish your body with healthy food, gentle movement designed to get your energy flowing, beautiful natural surroundings, restorative wood-fire sauna and healing massage. 

  • Feel your energy and sense of self expand as you start to feel more of what you want to feel.

covid-19 doubts - flexibility 

As travel opens up (albeit slowly), we are happy to be offering our retreat schedule for 2022. As the world continues to find its new normal, we need ways to find balance and restoration more than ever.  It is easy to escape from all the stresses of Covid and society in Costa Rica, where nature carries on blooming and the vibe remains peaceful and positive.   

We appreciate that travel will continue to involve an element of uncertainty in 2022 and we do our level best to make the process as smooth and stress free as possible for you, while staying flexible on changes.  

We invite you to sign up and give yourself something to look forward to, even if it is not 100% certain to go ahead.  Any deposit or booking you make with us that you cannot attend due to a Covid-related situation will be transferable to another group or private retreat or, if no other dates work, refundable minus a small booking fee.  

 

We are looking forward to welcoming you onto a retreat soon.

What They Say

“As a non-horse person, it was so impactful to interact with these beautiful animals. Having a horse listen and feel your energy and respond is an experience I can't even explain in words. Awesome!”
