Amazing experience

I had a really amazing experience at NLA. Matt and Jeanae are very caring, friendly people and they run their retreat in a very professional manner. I was always well taken care of with great food and really comfortable rooms with a private bathroom. The house where the retreat is held is a really beautiful space to spend a week relaxing and taking part in the ceremonies. The ceremonies themselves usually have no more than 8 people and are really well guided by Matt with an additional 2 other people acting as ‘carers’ to assist people if they need anything. It’s always best to do your own research when deciding on which retreat to go to because drinking plant medicines isn’t always an easy journey. But I can honestly say that NLA is a great place to start if you’re looking for a safe, comfortable place to partake where you’re guided in caring, professional hands at all times.

Out of this world I experience

Beautiful property set on top of the mountain, offering spectacular views of the ocean and Costa Rica landscape. Small group size to share a week of interpersonal transformation. Private rooms with comfortable beds, home cooked meals, clean environment, and bonding time helped add trust, safety, and relaxation to the experience. If you are considering taking the ayahuasca journey, Matt and Janae offer the perfect environment for you!

Amazing!

After spending a week here at the retreat all I can say is that I had an amazing time. The food was very high quality, fresh and interesting and following the correct diet needed. The property is stunning with large clean areas inside and out to mingle with other guests or the private rooms with private bathrooms and large and airy and very comfortable. There is hiking trails, a large swimming pool and hot ub which were very nice. The ceremony’s were very good, strong medicine and done in an authentic way as is done in Peru. My first time drinking Ayahuascha and I definitely picked the right place, only 8 people per ceremony which is perfect for what I wanted. The owners Matt and Jeanae were very friendly and helpful with everything and a big shout out to Drew who helps out, had some great chats with him and he’s very funny

Yoga


As part of our retreat programs, yoga will be available as schedule permits (usually 3 sessions per week) free of any additional costs. Guests are welcome to join in yoga sessions as often as they choose.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an Indian practice of physical, mental and spiritual discipline. Yoga gurus from India introduced yoga to the western world in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the 1980’s it flourished in the west as a popular form of physical exercise. However, it is much more than that; it is a meditative and spiritual practice as well.

Yoga is designed to be of use for all individuals, with varying level of skill and energy. Thus, it can be done on a daily basis without risk of exhaustion or injury. At New Life Ayahuasca, our resident yoga instructor will adjust each daily session to the participant’s skill level including optional exercises for those of a more advanced level.

YOGA

jeanaeyogaThrough queued breath work linked with intentional movement sequences,  yoga helps create a firm foundation that promotes proper posture, deep breathing and an open heart. Yoga activates the parasympathetic system which lowers blood pressure, lowers corisol, and relieves the ‘fight or flight’ sensation. These exercises, which manually pump the lymphatic system, help flush the muscular system and stimulate internal organs. This invigoration of the immune system brings fresh blood to organs and serves to detoxify the body, helping repair the total system and bring about great calm and relaxation. New Life Ayahuasca offers yoga sessions for any guests interested in participating. Yoga mats are provided.

 OUR YOGA INSTRUCTOR

jeanaeyoga1Jeanae teaches all of our yoga sessions. She began doing Yoga only a year ago and within just a few months of practice she experienced such a profound transformation in her physical body and mental state that she got her yoga teacher certification. Jeanae tries to incorporate an element of spirituality into her practices that is often neglected by most Western practitioners of Yoga. She feels that through the practice of Yoga, we can better connect to where we are at on an internal level and thus be more prepared for ayahuasca ceremonies.
