If you’re anything like us, you LOVE to eat and drink things that taste yummy and contribute to optimal health, well-being 🙂 

Which means you’re going to LOVE THIS…

Your stay at Blue Spirit includes three consciously prepared gourmet vegetarian meals a day. 

They serve fresh locally sourced fish three evenings per week and eggs every morning along with breakfast; cheese is also regularly available while their buffet always provides vegan and gluten-free options. 

To accommodate food restrictions and allergies there’s a Pure Food option, offering veggies, grains and legumes cooked without any seasoning or oils. 

Blue Spirit works with local farmers to purchase organically grown produce when available and keeps a high standard of freshness and good practices to make all their meals as delicious, healthy, and vibrant as possible.

Guests RAVE about the treats at the café. If you like to start your day with a healthy superfood smoothie, fresh coconut water, or fresh vegetable juice, or perhaps prefer to indulge in an afternoon cappuccino with an assortment of freshly made gluten-free and vegan snacks, the Blue Spirit Café is your spot. 

 In the evening, guests like to mingle in the relaxing atmosphere while sipping excellent organic wines or refresh with a chilled artisanal beer or kombucha.

Your hosts, Veronique and Erin have got you COVERED. We know what makes a yoga retreat extra special and we have set forth POWERFUL intentions to create and facilitate an experience for you that will meet all your expectations and BEYOND 😉

A few testimonials from past retreats…

The synergist blend of Erin's energy and Veronique made for balance that was needed. - Rebecca

“The synergist blend of Erin’s energy and Veronique made for balance that was needed. The two have a magnetic pull and balance that allows you to feel grounded but also lifted. I highly recommend letting go of any ideas of what you might think something will be for you and if the desire to show up in person happens just know that you will get exactly what your soul is needing. Thank you, Erin and Veronique, for being brave enough to show up for others so powerfully.” ~ Rebecca

Together Erin & Veronique are a dynamic duo that generate creativity, positivity, light and so much love - Erica

“The jungle + Erin & Veronique + the Pura Vida vibes allowed me to reconnect with God & Spirit in such a refreshing and nourishing way.  Together Erin & Veronique are a dynamic duo that generate creativity, positivity, light and so much love for all of those looking to begin or deepen their yoga practice.  I highly recommend pressing the ‘pause button’ on life to attend one of these events to connect, learn, and refill your cup!” ~ Erica

This retreat was EXACTLY what I needed. A total disconnect from the fast paced life at home that is full of distractions and “to do” lists ~ McKenzie

“This retreat was EXACTLY what I needed. A total disconnect from the fast paced life at home that is full of distractions and “to do” lists. I was able to really live in the moment and learn some take-home practices to incorporate in my daily life. And the yoga was incredible. Every session was totally different and completely fulfilling.” – McKenzie
