(TO PAY ONLY A 30% DEPOSIT USE CODE COSTARICA2018)
WE ARE invites you to travel to Playa Guiones, Costa Rica with us! This trip will be an immersive experience into all the elements a new adventure has to offer; from the vibrant array of flora and fauna to the echoing howls and chirps of the local wildlife. This adventure is a journey to a new place with new people but also an opportunity for an inward journey toward your most authentic self. We will take an edible journey through a local organic garden. Creatively reset with daily yoga classes and a unique handstand workshop taught by our incredible Ambassador, Jacquelyn Umof. While we tune into our bodies through yoga we will also tune into the ocean with opportunities to surf a local beginner break! We will immerse ourselves in the local community by hosting a dual part workshop at a local school--part one will be an ambassador lead dance workshop and part two will be an art workshop--all with the local children. We will make an impact emotionally with the community and physically on the coastline as we take part in a tree planting ceremony to restore the local coastline.
Join us on this one of a kind adventure to build a community of self growth and empowerment that will last a lifetime. Tune-in with other like minded health conscious ladies and challenge the boundaries of your comfort zone with unique opportunities for creative movement.

One of the foundational principles of WE ARE’s mission is the desire to give back to the destinations visited; redefining how we answer call to travel. We will work within the local community with a two part workshop. We will host a dance based movement workshop led by Jacquelyn as well as an art workshop led by Giulia. These workshops are intended to add or supplement a pillar of creative expression for the local children's schooling.
We will also clean up every beach we set foot on - a small and simple effort, that shines a light on the issues of waste, particularly when it pours directly into our oceans.
Each attendee will participate in a tree planting ceremony followed by a meditation. We will give back to the Earth by each planting a tree in a collective effort to restore the coastline. Not only will we make moves to restore the coastline but we will improve air quality and create a tangible symbol for the WE ARE Mission.
