This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and very healing. I was going through a rough time when I was there and received some bad news. Fern was compassionate and catered the yoga that day for me, it was healing. Afterwards I felt so good I was shaking. It was a very nurturing and healing place and her yoga and food she fed me made me feel taken care of and nourished. She also helped me to feel confident and magnetic with the yoga and unique meditation practices. It was a truly unforgettable experience and when I got back I had 3 job offers!

Last month, I embarked on my first solo trip (EVER!) to Nosara, Costa Rica, to go on a personal thyroid yoga healing retreat and it was truly a life changing experience. For years I have suffered through health issues due to my thyroid with little hope that I would ever return to living a vibrant and joyous life that I desperately wanted. I felt like I was walking through a dark haze of fog for years, having my life revolve around never ending symptom flare ups that affected me physically and emotionally every day. I felt so stuck and trapped in a body that had lost it’s voice and inner vibrancy.

I finally trusted my gut and decided to take a leap of faith to work with Fern Olivia in the jungle of Costa Rica to find the answers I had been seeking. I cannot thank Fern enough for her wisdom, love, and guidance in teaching me thyroid yoga, food as medicine practices, self care rituals, and how to heal my mind, body, and spirit by trusting my inner light and healer.

Once I was able to truly listen to my inner self and let go of the trapped energy and emotion that I had been suppressing for years, then I was finally able to feel a sense of freedom and joy again. I never realized how serious and self sacrificing I had become in helping others, while ignoring my own needs. I am learning to trust myself and what it means to truly have the freedom to shine my light to the world, especially with my voice. It is still a process, but I am excited for this next step in my healing journey and I am so thankful for my family, friends, and supports who have helped me along the way so far.

Thank you Fern, I feel so blessed and grateful for you and everyone who has supported me along this journey!

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!
