Come play, laugh, and expand yourself with our version of a Women’s Wellness Retreat.

Hosted by Chanelle Sladics and Kjersti Buaas, two Professional Snowboarder’s with great passionate to preserve the beauty of our planet and ourselves. X-Games Bronze Medalist, Chanelle Sladics, also a Yogaworks graduated teacher and avid environmental activist. Kjersti Buaas, Olympic Bronze Medalist, has 15 years of experience competing on the snowboard world tour and is currently going into her 4th Olympics!

We aim to share the most valuable life tools and techniques that have greatly transformed us on our action packed paths! The focal point of this week is combining the yin consciousness to the yang activity.

We will be lightly covering the power of water, nutrition, gratitude, meditation, breath-work, presentness, flexibility, and yin/yang balance through physical “rock n roll” activities like surfing, SUP, yoga, diving (snorkel/free dive workshop). We are confident you will leave with an elevated connection to yourself, the earth, and this moment.

Whether you are new or experienced at surfing/SUPing/yoga or any of the above, don’t worry, this week is nurtures all levels.

ALL you need is a curious mind, an open heart, a desire to move your body and a mindful attitude. Lets collectively aim to not judge each other; creating a safe space to learn, grow, and expand ourselves.


Nestled in warm and beautiful Playa Negra on the Pacific shoreline of Costa Rica is an “all-inclusive” realization of your dream surf trip. Tropical forests line many of the beaches and the dark sand holds a reef break that is ideal for the beginner as well as the expert surfer.

We offer something different from other Costa Rica surf trips because we provide first class lodging, service, and over 20 years of local surf knowledge. Just show up with your quiver, and our staff will take care of everything.


Our schedule is as unpredictable as the wave forecast. In addition to the groups collective voice and goals, mother nature’s weather will determine what activities we can do and when.

Your trip package will include daily surf or SUP lessons, with 1 group boat snorkel + scuba dive scheduled…

You may snorkel at the top and enjoy the view, or Chanelle will guide a mellow introduction to free diving with breath work.

Yoga will be practiced daily in some form, in addition to a workshop on how to integrate the 8 limbs of yoga. Again these Yang activities will be inspired by a Yin energy from within.

Whether overcoming your fear in the water or within, come face your challenges with us- peacefully and playfully! Pura Vida!


This weeks cuisine focus will be LOCAL, NON-GMO, ORGANIC whole foods. We will talk in depth about this way of living, supporting a system of farmers that truly support us, the animals, & the health of our planet!

Fresh caught fish, local eggs, veggies and fruit will all be apart of the mostly gluten-free meals. Organic coffee and tea will be available, but caffeine is not encouraged, as we aim to teach you about the subtle body energy that is negatively influenced by sugar, alcohol, and caffeine.

Disposable plastics will be another topic of focus. We will gifting eco goody bags to support new habits of awareness in regards to eliminating your single-use plastic footprint this week and beyond. FUN is the foundation of our days! Documentaries will be watched, discussion groups will be had, gratitude circles will be initiated, kind gestures will be encouraged and progression will be ignited!

We suggest a cleanse a week before from sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and smoking (if you dare).

I was overjoyed when I saw the house we were staying at in Sayulita. Every night I was lulled to sleep to the sound of waves outside. The house was very nice and the location was amazing. Our guides and instructors were awesome, and really provided a great time. Thanks again.
