Spirit of Sacred Practice: Yoga, Meditation, and Dance Retreat

“Empowering, Transformative, and Reflective.”

“Enlightening, Sacred, Unifying.” ~Previous Sit in Your Center Retreatants

Join Dawn “Motherheart” Smelser at the “Moon Lodge”, a sweet respite nestled next to 250,000 acres of protected forest in the volcanic highlands of Costa Rica’s vibrant green heart, for a magical retreat. You will enjoy daily yoga, meditations, inspired creativity, and dance in a lush and sacred environment. In addition to daily classes and three healthy and delicious meals, your retreat includes a farm tour, a day trip to the local hot springs, and a community day. Nourished by fresh, local cuisine, and open-hearted community, we gather to allow our bodies and minds to loosen the unnecessary, be soothed by possibility, and welcome spaciousness and joy. 

What's Included:

Transport to/from airport to retreat center

7 nights accommodations

Three wholefoods meals per day

Hot Springs visit

Daily yoga sessions

Biodynamic Farm Tour

Karma Yoga Service Project

Feminine Wisdom traditions


Dawn Smelser is a certified spiritual healer, master yoga teacher, dancer, and medium, who teaches from the heart always. She moves from the sacred to the profane with ease and always has some laughter (and sometimes tears) to share with her classes. She has been teaching yoga for the last 20 years, founded MotherHeart Yoga Sangha in Philadelphia, and published Rooted Magazine.


You will stay at a sustainable, rainforest eco-lodge hotel providing comfortable accommodations amidst acres of lush gardens, hiking trails, and a secluded jungle. The atmosphere at the retreat center is simple, healthy, and relaxed. Rooms are single, double, or triple occupancy with fans and hot water. The eco-lodge has a beautiful chlorine-free swimming pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are prepared daily and include healthy vegetarian options. The food is organic and local when available, prepared with nourishing ingredients and lots of love.
