Your Own Journey Home


Oftentimes, the obligations and routines of our daily life challenge our ability to connect with our inner wisdom.

The practices of yoga, meditation, journal writing, and discussion, throughout the week will help guide us back to the place within each one of us which is our home base.

Our intention is to provide an opportunity to find the tranquil space within via the practices of yoga, meditation and mindfulness. During our twice daily scheduled time together we will weave these practices together, so that the physical practice of yoga may become the metaphor for the inner journey home.

Transportation Information

Airfare and Ground Transportation

Air Transportation:
You’ve picked a great time to travel to Costa Rica because the airfare rates are the lowest we’ve seen in years. Book your travel into the Liberia Airport (Code: LIR) – this is a modern airport that services many major airlines. Be sure to check Southwest (United States) for amazing fares. Most airlines will arrive mid-day and depart around 1-3 pm.

Ground Transportation:
You will need to take a shuttle from the Liberia Airport to the Costa Rica Yoga Spa (approx 2.5 hours). We will arrange two shuttles the day the retreat starts (from LIR usually around 12:30 and 3:00) and two more on the final day (approx 7:00 am and 9:30 am) if you would like to use those. We can also recommend trusted shuttle options if you would like to arrange your own transportation.

Arrival, Departure & Check-In Info:
Most planes arrive in Liberia between 11am and 2 pm and it takes approx 2.5 hours to travel to Nosara from the airport. Check in on Saturday will be between 2pm and 8pm. We will have an evening class that night to welcome you to Nosara. On the final day we will have a morning practice available to students who are able to attend (depending on your departure time back to the Liberia) and checkout will be completed by 11 am. Let us know if you have any questions about the schedule!

Journey Home

During your retreat you will be offered the silence, space and beauty to slow down, tune in, connect and journey home to the wisdom necessary to do your life’s work. Yoga is used as the organic metaphor for life experiences. Away from the busyness and routines, a new rhythm arises; A rhythm woven with movement, nurturing and deep connection. Challenge, feel and connect to the wisdom always available and already within you. Daily practices of mindfulness, meditation and journaling will be easily incorporated beyond the retreat environment. Take home with you the ability to connect amidst the storm of life’s challenges and beauty.

Erin – Yoga Instructor – E-RYT

Five Parks Yoga

Erin received her 200-hour teaching certification in 2008 in Arvada, Colorado. For the next several years, she taught classes at her neighborhood studio.

In December of 2011, she and her husband moved their family of five to Tamarindo, Costa Rica for six months. They fell in love with Costa Rica and decided to split their time between Colorado and Costa Rica. Upon her first return to Colorado, she opened her own studio, Five Parks Yoga, which allowed her to teach in both Colorado and Costa Rica.

In an effort to bridge the gap between Colorado and Costa Rica, in February of 2015, Erin and her husband Matt started filming her yoga classes and posting them on YouTube, so that her students could practice with her when she wasn’t in town, (either town!). Since that time, she has posted over 300+ classes and now has 130,000 subscribers and students from all over the world. While her original intention was to simply share her classes with her students at her two homes, the unexpected result of her YouTube channel has given her an opportunity to connect with students from all over the world. Visit Erin online at:

Erin’s other passion project began in 2013 when she co-founded Warrior Girls Yoga – yoga workshops and camps for middle school and high school-aged girls. ( )The program has been an amazing part of her passion for sharing yoga in a full-hearted and meaningful way.

Erin strives to share her love for self-discovery through the practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga during this retreat.
