November 6th – 10th 2019
Green Ray Villas, South Guiones, Costa Rica

The time is NOW for us to go from ME to WE!

To Connect to our most authentic Being so that we can connect to each other and the world around us.

To Root deeply in intentional living and bringing awareness to how we are showing up in the world.

To Rise to our full potential and support others in doing the same so that the world will know a higher consciousness / vibration.

Join Angela and Ashley in a 5-day immersion, in the magic of Costa Rica’s nature, nourished with healthy local vegetarian food, fresh juices and coconut waters. Our days will be spent enjoying sacred connection, yoga, meditation, mantra, adventure and much more! 

Will you join us for this intimate, power-FULL experience?

I am on a mission to help make the world a better place for ALL of us in whatever way I can. I believe there are solutions to create more Peace, Harmony, Connection and Love in the world. In my opinion, it starts with each of US choosing to live with a deeper awareness around HOW we are interacting with Self, Others and Mother Earth!


To me, Yoga is a way of experiencing life. A conscious way of BEING. I know the powerful benefits I have experienced over the past 11yrs of practicing Yoga, teaching Yoga and living Yoga. It has helped me to heal, awaken, find peace, love deeper, and come hOMe sweet hOMe to an authentic existence.


It is my deepest desire to share the gifts, tools, technology and wisdom I have learned and continue to learn whenever possible. My prayer is that we move together from the ME to the WE!! Supporting one another in creating a sustainable, healthy, harmonious existence for all of us.

Ashley Collette

I’m on fire for being a part of building community that supports sustainable wellness for us and the world around us. I believe that we are agents of the world in which we live, and that each of us has a unique and amazing opportunity to live out our life mission with ease and freedom. I have been a serving member of the Canadian Armed Forces for 17 years, and the way of life that I have learned through the yogic path is one that I feel has enriched my life so much that I can’t help but want to share it with others when the opportunity arises.


My training as a yoga and meditation teacher is rooted in Whispering Winds Yoga School (Lanee Brown), The Nosara Yoga Institute (Don and Amba Stapleton), The Samudra School of Living Yoga (Shiva Rea), and the Integrative Restoration Institute (Richard Miller). May we have many opportunities to learn and grow together! Namaste.
