EatMoveRest Retreat

About us

Become the best version of yourself! Join us this upcoming March 2019 for a full-immersion, all-inclusive, 7-day EatMoveRest Costa Rica Retreat at Farm of Life (Finca de Vida)! This beautiful retreat center is located just 45 minutes from Dominical Beach, nestled in amongst the lush, tropical rain forest. 

We will be leading you through all-things EatMoveRest, along with the amazing Farm of Life staff! Whether you're looking to eat entirely raw vegan meals, or some raw and some plant-based cooked meals, you can look forward to nutritious and delicious juices, smoothies, salads, tropical fruits, gourmet dinners and desserts, raw food & cooking workshops and so much more! This retreat doubles as a vacation in one of the most beautiful places in the world--you can make this experience as action-packed and adventurous or as relaxing and restorative as you please. 

There will be opportunities to hike and explore waterfalls, visit local beaches, farmers' markets, an organic farm on-site, and an off-grid living tour! All excursions are completely optional but will be totally unforgettable experiences! We will also be leading group discussions and workshops, as well as one-on-one coaching, to help educate you on a raw and vegan lifestyle, achieving better health & fitness, and tapping into your heart's true desires through spirituality, meditation, yoga, and more!

We hope you'll join us! We can't wait to connect & grow with all of you! Visit to learn more & submit an application! We will be in touch with you to provide pricing & detailed information!
