As we make final plans for the 2nd Annual BYNS Retreat, we can't help but reflect on last year. In 2016, BYNS ventured to the Pura Vida Spa in Costa Rica for a fabulous five days of relaxation and rejuvenation. The 2016 retreat, "Disconnect to Reconnect", surprised us all. We didn't realize how much we needed this getaway, and we didn't realize how much fun we would have together. If you have the slightest inkling to join BYNS to Rejuvenate, it is meant to be. Read what retreat-goers said last year:
“The trip was incredible. One of the most relaxing and satisfying experiences I have ever had. I could write pages about all the things I loved about the trip. Doing Bikram twice a day in that beautiful studio, the amazing food, the opportunity to get spa treatments and to lounge around, all of it was rejuvenating and calming.”
“Doing yoga in a heated room , two times a day makes my body " sing ". I feel rejuvenated, elongated and more flexible.”
“I felt healthier and stronger. I also was able to pick up more on the details of holding the belly in and having better alignment, which I did not do prior to the trip. Also, being able to do 2 yoga classes a day felt exhausting and amazing at the same time. I wish I could do that in my regular life!”
“I felt amazing! It was so cool seeing what my body was capable of.”
“There are not enough words to describe my yoga experience in Costa Rica!!! First of all, I never thought I could complete a "double" in a day...the 2 days we included Yin Yoga -- made for a triple!! I loved how hot the room was, I ❤️'D how big the room was, I ❤️'D the convenience of the mats, the towels, the water, etc in the room. I ❤️'D my commuting time to and from class!! ?? Best of all, I ❤️'D each and everyone of the teachers!
“I was not aware how much I improved until I got home I ended up enjoying the 2 classes a day very much and appreciated the flexibility of the classes -made me feel like I wasn't really on a schedule.”
“It was the most relaxed I have been in years.”
“I was very much at peace.”
“My retreat experience was beyond amazing! It was life changing for me. Every day that I think about my time in Costa Rica, I literally still get goose bumps! The accommodations were lovely -- comfy bed, sheets, towels. Good water pressure, hot water (always). Room was cleaned 1x/day and had evening turn down service -- nice touch. The food/daily meals were UNBELIEVABLE!!! So fresh, so unprocessed, so yum!! And anything extra requested -- voila!! Service was key -- nothing was ever too difficult to deliver (and you know Americans can be demanding!) The spa services were by far some of the best that I have experienced. The time limit was always exceeded - due to excellence of the procedure. Spa services were easy to schedule. Check-in and check out procedures were seamless. I had a 4:00 AM check-out...I literally put my luggage outside my door -- and it was whisked away by the driver and placed in the van. The newly renovated pool and hot tub were luxurious. I ❤️ salt water -- and the fact that the pool was also heated was a bonus. The weather was to-die-for...can't pre-order that sunshine!!”
