It's a dream to be here. Come in the heart of the Mexican Caribbean. Fill in your check-in and check-out date below and book your stay. We can only promise you great moments and unforgettable holidays with us.
This is an invitation to both new and dedicated yogis, nature lovers, meditation enthusiasts, yoga teachers, mermaids, travel junkies, and conscious women of all ages. We invite you to join us in the wild jungle of the Nicoya Peninsula and legendary, healing waters of the Pacific Ocean on Playa Guiones in Nosara, Costa Rica.
We are so excited to share with you this rare opportunity to study with Ally Boothroyd and Tiina Kivinen together in person. A time to dive deep into personal sadhana (practice) and sangha (community), to recharge every layer of your Self.
Rooted in our Kripalu lineage, this week-long soulful journey is a groundbreaking immersion for the modern day woman with daily yoga, pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, connection with nature and earth & ocean ceremony. We invite you to celebrate the expression of life that is here right now, to heal deeply in the cocoon of conscious rest and the tropical surroundings and connect to your whole integrated Self. We invite you to re-enchant yourself with the magic of life and the beauty of the natural world.
We would be honoured if you would join us for one week on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Nosara, Costa Rica.

Ally is founder of Sarovara Yoga in Bobcaygeon, and co-facilitator of the Living Yoga 200 hr yoga teacher training program, along with Tiina Kivinen. She studied under Randal Williams of the Kripalu Centre for Yoga and Health for her 200 hour training. In her classes she loves to bring awareness to the physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts that arise throughout the practice to create a ‘meditation in motion’ style of yoga. She is particularly interested in the Eight Limbs of yoga and yoga philosophy and seeks to deepen her students’ yoga practices both on and off the mat.
Tiina has been teaching yoga for over 18 years and offers classes in Peterborough Ontario and Nosara Costa Rica. Tiina is the founder of Living Yoga 200 hr training, Peterborough Living Yoga, and Moon to Moon Restorative Yoga Teacher Training. She is a mentor and staff of Transformational Sleep Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Ally Boothroyd, and has been involved in other professional yoga trainings, such as assistant director of Let Your Yoga Dance Teacher Training in Nosara Costa Rica, and faculty for teacher trainings at Kripalu Centre for Yoga and Health and Nosara Yoga Institute.

She offers creative, flowing, prayerful, and prana infused yoga that tunes us into our divine nature. With emphasis on the deeper practices of yoga, her classes inspire a connection to the wisdom of prana (life force) and a deep honouring of inner wisdom and the experience of the present moment. Tiina has offered nourishing, deepening, spirit-filled yoga retreats in Costa Rica and Ontario.
Tiina was raised in the wilderness of Lappe Ontario and grew up in Thunder Bay involved in young women’s empowerment, social and environmental activism, and community involvement. She was honoured to receive the Citizen of Exceptional Achievement Award in 2001 and the Governer General’s Award for Community Involvement. Tiina completed a degree in Woman Studies and Cultural Studies from Trent University as well as a diploma in Expressive Arts from Fleming College. She enjoys homesteading, is passionate about off-grid living and simplicity, and she really loves her dogs Breeze and Liila and partner Trent.
