“All journeys have secret destinations of which

– Mark Buber


You asked for this, and so here it is!  You’re invited.

Ignite Power Yoga Studio and Embody Renegade Wellness are thrilled to announce this new retreat opportunity, and excited to once again be partnering with Peace Retreat Costa Rica.

Our initial February 2015 retreat was such a success, and it’s time for you to

make it happen this time.


Our offering to you:

On this retreat we will hold space for you to finish the year powerfully, with completion and gratitude.  In this supported space, you will begin anew with clear intentions, fierce momentum to 

align those clear intentions towards

manifesting the life you imagine in 2016.

Will you accept your gift?


The New Year!  It’s the perfect time to say YES to yourself, do an end of the year inventory of your life, shake things up a bit, take a journey away from home, and set intentions of

how you want your life to be. 















This is a yoga retreat and vacation to a beautiful new place all wrapped into one.

Create and immerse into a space that offers you yoga, sun, beach, adventure, free time, wellness, and connection with community.


We’ve made it SUPER EASY for you! We’re delivering an inclusive package that takes care of the fine tuning, so that you don’t have to figure anything out. All you have to do is SHOW UP.
