Restore & Revitalize
Feeling peaceful and positive? Finding it easy to stay in balance? Energised and motivated?
If your answer is NO to any of these questions, this retreat is for you.
When life gets tough our levels of stress can rise and build up, which not only feels bad but which creates a toxic state for our bodies and minds. We start living in hyper-vigilence, fire-fighting and never getting back to a state of rest and growth.
One powerful and scientifically proven way to detoxify is to be in nature in a mindful way. This allows our senses to settle back into rhythm, our bodies to get back into the “reset and digest” state of the nervous system, our minds to quiet and our spirits to sing again.
Join us for this nurturing, energising and relaxing retreat where nature, horses and experience will support and encourage your whole system to shift back into balance, to feel healthy and inspired, to re-find a state of powerful, positive peace.
Detox and 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 restful yet energising workshop, you will join our extraordinary horses in their home - the spacious and 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, releasing the toxic stress and allowing the body and mind to find their positive flow again.
Join us and become part of the herd, feeling safe and accepted, free to explore and find your own place and balance.
Explore creating relationship and connection with a sensitive being who is able to process and accept his emotions, release stress as it arises and live in a natural way – when we support ourselves to do so, we are able to do this too.
Have fun and play with creative activities and insightful Equine Facilitated Sand Play experience.
Learn tangible take-home tools to release stress and take this feeling back into your own life.
Cherish and nourish your body with pure clean air, spring water, healthy food, gentle movement designed to get your body flowing, beautiful natural surroundings, restorative wood-fire sauna and healing massage.
Feel your energy and sense of self expand as you release and detoxify the mind and body and allow in the positive, fulfilling, heart-based work of the horses and the natural world.
Our mission is to provide a deeper connection with self, through horses, nature and experience.

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.
