  • Review for Laura Green & Mickey Clark

    Maria Scarano   April 27, 2015

      Laura & Mickey are the best!

    I am currently taking a month long dance camp in Costa Rica with Laura & Mickey and I absolutely love their acro yoga class!!! I look forward to it every day. Laura is really amazing at articulating good form, safety, and teaching the practice of acro yoga. Mickey is really good at being the base and flying Laura in their demonstrations, as well as helping students to get into the poses and showing us how to spot eachother (safety). They also have a number of great partner stretches and warm-up moves, and help us all see how strong we are! So blessed to get a whole month with these two!! <3

  • Review for Iguana Lodge Beach Resort and Spa

      Heaven on earth

    Iguana Lodge is a little piece of heaven on earth. I have been to four retreats there with different teachers (planned two and helped with planning one) and have loved Iguana every time. The owners, Toby and Lauren are expats who are knowledgeable, helpful, and so much fun. Lauren is a yoga teacher herself and really understands how retreats work. Toby, Lauren, and their staff make planning retreats effortless, and execution flawless. They have two yoga decks, a spa, a pool, and are steps from a beautiful beach. Whether you want to practice yoga and relax all day, or spend your free time hiking in the rain forest, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, zip lining, etc., it's all at your fingertips. The staff couldn't be nicer or more welcoming... AND THE FOOD!!! Iguana is the perfect place to have your next retreat…one problem, you won't want to have a retreat anywhere else!!

  • Review for Nimea Kaya Healing Center

    Eric King   April 24, 2015

      Jungle Paradise

    In February 2014 I traveled to Nimea Kaya to participate in my first ayahuasca ceremonies. I had been researching ayahuasca for about 6 months prior and felt called to the healing powers of the medicine. Even though I felt like I knew what I was getting into, nothing could have prepared me for what transpired over my 9 day retreat. Jill and Casey have done an amazing job creating a safe, loving environment at Nimea Kaya. The retreat center itself is very well built, the maloca is very beautiful and spacious. The food they serve is healthy and delicious, yet was completely different from the food I was used to eating. I grew up on a meat based diet and I was blown away at how tasty and filling a fruit and veggie diet could be. The facilitators are absolutely amazing. Everyone was very professional and they truly cared about each guest getting the most out of their experience. During ceremony they help with anything you need, whether its walking you to the restroom, giving you a clean bucket, or just sitting with you to hold space. The entire staff was so open and friendly, it was nice being able to talk through my experience with them and have any of my questions answered. I traveled to Nimea Kaya alone, which made me a little nervous. But right when I got off the plane I made fast friends with everyone in my group. By the second day of the retreat we all felt like we had been friends for years, and I still keep in contact with many of them today. I came in with set intentions and I felt like I got everything I asked for and so much more. I really felt like my brain was rewired and I was able to view things in my life from a different perspective. When I returned home I had a new found appreciation for everything and several people commented on how much happier I was. I am very grateful to Jill & Casey for creating this amazing place and I recommend Nimea Kaya to anyone seeking the healing powers of ayahuasca. I will definitely return to Nimea Kaya when I am ready to work with ayahuasca again.

  • Review for Isá Samë/Jessica Bertram

    Chiara Vestrini   April 24, 2015

      Wonderful experience

    The first ayahuasca session Jessica explained me her way of working her ethic and respect in using the plant. Put the attention on the preparation of the body and the soul before a ceremony is fundamental to have a deep experience. I really appreciated Jessica’s way of taking care of people, she thought me how to deal with the plant during the ceremony and after each session she dedicated time to comment and analyze the experience (she is the only shaman I have heard who does it). Her way of working is very accurate, she takes care of the people in a maternal way and support the work that the plant does on us. I feel very lucky to have met Jessica and to have had my first ayahuasca experience with Her. Chiara (Itlay).
