Vivo Nosara Hotel

Our tropical yoga adventure will be offered at an intimate, gorgeous hotel located in the heart of Nosara and steps from Playa Guiones, a breathtaking beach on the Pacific Ocean of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula Blue Zone. Daily Thyroid Yoga® classes with Fern Olivia, chanting and voice circles, nourishing organic food, cacao ceremonies under the stars, surf and jungle hikes, and swimming in beautiful natural tide pools. One of the best parts of this exotic, special experience is the hands-on-healing you'll receive from Fern Olivia in the beautiful oasis that Nosara is known for. Plus, join in a social impact experience with Costas Verdes, a special tree planting ceremony where we will join together to restore our precious coastline.

As we work together to dive deep into any of the challenges or dis-ease you have been experiencing in your physical or energetic body, you’ll enter into the state of self realizing, tapping into your own empowered self-healing potential.

Our time together may include a combination of yoga, breath work, Reiki energy work, mindfulness practices, meditation, chanting, affirmations, creative movement, dancing, writing, culinary nourishment, nature hikes, aromatherapy, sound healing, tantra and sacred sensuality. 

You will leave feeling nourished, inspired, empowered, confident, seen, heard, and understood.

Love stories

Working with Fern was absolutely amazing and I am so glad I travelled far to get the chance to do it. I started out with the online Thyroid Yoga® course and after I had completed it, I met with Fern for a personal retreat.

Spending the time with Fern in person made me feel understood without having to explain much. I would just have to touch upon things and Fern would pick it up right away and relate to it. Also being guided in the actual physical poses and rituals as opposed to watching it online really gave a clear understanding and feeling of what the poses should feel like. Her touch is very supportive and healing.
There is a special energy around healers and lightworkers that seems to grow stronger when you are physically closer. If you have the chance to attend a personal retreat with Fern, you will be changed forever.

A retreat with Fern in Costa Rica would be a dream come true. her energy is so healing and encouraging and compassionate that you come away from time spent with Fern like a new person.

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience, Fern! I feel loved and supported. Back in DC, my energy level is much higher. I also feel lighter and like I may have lost weight.

You are a beautiful, luminous soul who is doing such important work that will affect millions. I am so grateful and blessed to have found you and now have you as part of my tribe.

Update August 6, 2017: I am feeling fabulous! My health has greatly improved and I have lost almost 20 lbs!

Since completing my training with you, I have been busy sharing my story with my students and fellow faculty and singing your praises - you are an inspired spirit! So excited to use my certification to help spread the Thyroid Yoga word. I feel blessed to be able to provide others with the tools and support to confidently increase health and wellness of their thyroid in a holistic way.

And - my doctors were so surprised when I went in to have my blood levels checked and my thyroid levels were fine - and even more surprised I never went on medication! Thyroid Yoga saved me!
