Joy in the journey Women’s retreat

November 26, 2023 - December 2, 2023


Meet us at Synergy Retreat Centre in Uvita, Costa Rica where the lush, mountainous rainforest meets the ocean and the sound of the birds soothes your soul.
     We have found a special, private, retreat centre that backs onto the Uvita River, is a 10 minute walk from a waterfall and swimming hole,, and only a 10 minute drive from the beach.
We will have exclusive access to Synergy with a private chef and concierge, making it feel like our home for the week as we spend time together building a strong sense of community and friendship.
Retreats offer a special opportunity to rest and receive nourishment on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) by being connected to nature, movement, breath, and fresh, nutrient dense food. The location, the sounds of the jungle and nearby river, the gourmet meals, the theming of each practice, the soul session inquiries, and the activities we do will all be thoughtful, meaningful, and offer the chance to heal, grow, and relax all while maintaining a sense of joy and freedom to be yourself, and have fun.
We are here to support you in finding joy in whatever journey you happen to be on when you arrive.

Meet your hosts:
Rhonda Loggains
I love creating meaningful experiences for people to learn about themselves and feel empowered to grow. Retreats offer a very special opportunity to really get to know ourselves in a new way.

I am warm and welcoming and want every person to have the tools they need to navigate their own life’s challenges. I use a combination of safe and strong movement practices, breathwork, meditation, mindset, and self-myofascial release to explore the connection between mind, body, and emotional well-being.

My hope is that everyone feels comfortable to come as they are and feel supported as they find what works best for them on their journey of self-healing.
Emma Gourlie
My name is Emma and I am a Creator, Space Holder, Energy Facilitator and Embodied Movement teacher who primarily works with women seeking to find their way back home to their bodies, bring harmony to their nervous system and find belonging through movement, ritual and community.

​I love weaving Mysticism and Astrology into my offerings along with the energy of the Moon. There is so much wisdom to be gained by awakening to the phases of the natural world around us.

Whether it’s through a movement class, sound journey, private session or Women’s Circle, I am here to hold space and witness you. I will meet you where you are at and support you as your journey unfolds.
