“The Recovery 2.0 retreat at Blue Spirit with Kia and Tommy was one of the best experiences - of any kind - I've ever had.”
- Retreat Participant


Renewal. Return to balance. Practice. Music. Nature. Community. This retreat will focus on yoga, meditation and other activities that create transformation and lead us into harmony.

It is more important than ever to come together to heal, release, and connect. This is an immersive transformational experience of a life time.


Our greatest joy is to share in the bounty of life in community. This retreat is the centerpiece of that experience. We go deep into practice together immersed in nature and support each other in the joy of living life more fully.
"The trip was nourishing at all levels from the physical layer through to the blissful core. Costa Rica, the monkeys, the food, the ocean, the energy and community all lovingly interwoven by Kia and Tommy, and the amazing music of Aykanna.”
- Brenda E.

You are in recovery if you are working to move beyond addictive patterns of thought and behavior such as drugs, alcohol, food, sex, love, codependency, gambling, debting and technology to name a few of the bigger ones. In the Recovery 2.0 perspective we are working on moving beyond any behaviors and thought patterns which bring negative consequences.

No. There is no nicotine in any form allowed on this trip. On this journey, there’s no need for nicotine.

All levels of practitioners are welcome on this trip from beginners to advanced.  That said, it is good to have some experience of yoga before coming on this journey.  We suggest that participants try out a few yoga classes in the Recovery 2.0 membership and/or other online or live yoga studios. To join Recovery 2.0 membership and gain access to our entire library of yoga, go to

If you have a partner or friend who is also in recovery or who has supported you in your recovery or who is interested in recovery, please ask them to apply as well and include your name in their application. Sharing this transformational week with someone close to you is such a gift.

Prices include lodging based on your accommodation choice, 3 excellent meals a day with vegan and vegetarian options available, program fee, all lectures, yoga, and retreat activities are included.

Covid test (if required to return to your home country) will be arranged for our group.

Not included:
Airfare & Ground transportation

Purchases made at the Blue Spirit Cafe or Gift Shop

Any shopping you may do or meals you have off campus are not included.

You will need a valid passport to travel to Costa Rica, but you will not need a Visa if you are coming from the US, Canada, or the European Union. The drinking water is excellent at Blue Spirit as it is in most of Costa Rica, and no additional vaccines are required. If you’re planning to spend time off site, you may want to get some Costa Rican Colones, although US dollars are widely accepted both at Blue Spirit and in the surrounding community.

You are NOT required to have a Covid Vaccine to come on this retreat.

Blue Spirit offers lodging options with and without A/C, and the common areas are primarily open air, no A/C. Fans are provided in the rooms without A/C, but only you know yourself. If you’re quite accustomed to a cool sleeping environment, you may prefer a lodging option that includes A/C. We have never felt overburdened by heat in any of the lodging options.

Beach clothing & yoga clothing (that dry easily). Proper dress is required in the dining hall, so a beach cover-up may be useful for the afternoons. You may bring your own Yoga Mat, but mats are also supplied by Blue Spirit. We suggest bringing a travel mat to lay on top of the ones provided, and/or a yoga mat towel. Choose shoes that dry easily and can easily slip off such as crocs and havianas. You can leave your shampoo and soap at home because luxurious and eco-friendly options are provided (and required) to help protect the natural environment at Blue Spirit. Beach towels are available for purchase in the gift shop. There are no laundry facilities, so we recommend packing accordingly. Basic toiletries are also available in the gift shop if you find that you’ve forgotten anything.
