Reset Restore Rejuvenate

Kaiut Yoga Retreat

January 11-18, 2020

Bodhi Tree Resort, Nosara, Costa Rica

If you’ve ever seen the gorgeous photos of yogis on retreat  with breathtaking views and thought, “I’m not a yogi but this looks amazing.”  Join Dana at the Bodhi Tree Resort for a yoga retreat for anyBODY. You do not need to have a yoga practice or a yoga body.  All bodies are welcome. Besides enjoying the amenities of the Bodhi Tree Resort which includes a protected open air yoga studio with views, delicious fresh food, a picturesque pool,  juice, coffee and alcohol bars, a world class gym and spa located in one of the Blue Zones, a quaint seaside Costa Rican village. We will be practicing Kaiut Yoga. Yoga for today’s modern life and any body type.

Experience the fastest growing yoga trend coming out of Brazil, Kaiut Yoga.   Yoga for EveryBody and AnyBody.  

January 2018 I joined a friend for a yoga retreat on the protected coastline of Nosara, Costa Rica, at the Bodhi Tree Resort.  

Let me back up and tell you why I decided to join her.  

For over a year, she had been practicing a type of yoga I had never heard of, Kaiut Yoga, that originated in my “heart” home,  Brazil.   I had been noticing a difference in my friend since she started practicing this mysterious yoga.  She seemed grounded, positive, coherent and less triggered.  I had the opportunity to visit my friend and experience her yoga class.  Admittedly, I was uncomfortable and slightly intimidated.  The practice was very different;  there was little movement in comparison to my normal flow class and it was WAY more challenging.  I had to direct my attention to be present because I could feel myself wanting to flee.  

However, I was surprised by how energized I felt after the practice and my curiosity was peeked.   

What was this yoga practice that apparently changed my friend’s life and why did I suddenly feel attracted to it?   

So, when my friend called and invited me to fill a vacancy that had opened for the Kaiut retreat hosted by her yoga studio, I leapt at the opportunity.  

Upon arrival, I was swept away by the beauty and peacefulness of the resort.  

The resort hit all my gold standards.

Inspired design enhanced by nature.  Eco friendly.  Beautiful spaces.  Delicious food with vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options.  Scrumptious desserts.  Fresh fish and other local protein.  For those of you who know that I make my own non dairy milks, get this….they offered four different kinds of milk to pair with the  smooth, flavorful Costa Rican coffee that’ll  make you anticipate waking up.  Sunsets.  Oh, the sunsets.  Soothing and invigorating ocean waters.   

Yoga studios where you will see all manor of flora and fauna whilst holding your pose.  

If that’s not enough…there’s a juice/coffee bar for the health nuts and for the Happy Hour crowd, there’s a bar!  

Most importantly,  I fell in love (if that’s possible) with the practice of Kaiut Yoga so much that I started my teacher training and I hosted a retreat this year in February at The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort.

I now have proof that Kaiut is truly addictive.

A few comments from my retreat guests:

Kelly from Missouri, my forever best friend.

“Dana’s retreat exceeded all of my expectations and so did Kauit Yoga!  I felt apprehensive about the yoga, I am not a “yoga person,” but quickly realized that Kauit Yoga truly IS yoga for “every body”… if I can do it, anyone can!  I also felt unsure about spending seven days with a dozen strangers.  My expectations were blown away.  I now have a dozen new and wonderful friendships, which will hopefully, be lifelong.   This is my beautiful bonus!   I never doubted that the resort would be amazing, after all, I could see it online and just knew it would be awesome… but, this too, exceeded my expectations! It is beautiful resort… the housing, the pool, the dining and bar area, and the yoga spaces, each thing was prettier than the other! And the food… just wow!”  

And Laura from Denver.

“Dana’s Kaiut Yoga retreat is a must for women who are 50+. I want all my best girlfriends to get the opportunity to learn how to take care of their body from the inside out. I learned how to “feel what I feel.”  I learned that I can teach my body to release old restrictions through Kaiut Yoga.  I loved the retreat because it was the perfect balance of yoga time and free time. I got to play in the ocean take long walks, enjoy beach time. Seemed like the days lasted forever. Best vacation.”

Karen from Chicago.

Two words come to mind when I reflect on Dana’s Kaiut Yoga retreat at the Bodhi Tree: Transporting and Transforming. We were transported to a place that was beautiful in every way. From the stunning grounds, accommodations and yoga shalas to the nourishing food, warm sun and the sounds of nature surrounding us.  These elements combined to create a perfect environment to reflect, recharge, rejuvenate. Kaiut is a transformative force and through our daily practice and experience, it began to awaken a connection to my body I didn’t know I needed. I’m excited to continue my Kaiut journey, a journey I believe has the power to bring me more into myself. Our retreat was the ultimate reset button.


We are hitting replay and returning to the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, January 11-18, 2020.

You are invited to start 2020 grounded in your body with the physical practice of Kaiut Yoga, inspired by the intelligence of your heart through the practice of HeartMath and gain clarity for the new year as we vision play together.

Kaiut is different.  It’s not just another yoga class.  

According to Francisco, “Yoga is a chronic state of presence with emotional coherence.  It is a state of presence that carries itself even when we have distractions.”  

Others have described Kaiut with these words:

“Feeling younger while I’m getting older.”

“Yoga for everyBODY and any BODY.”

“The practice touches something inside that allows me to rest.”

“A biomechanical re-routing” 

“Feels like coming home”

“A longevity plan!”

“Dissolving restriction and realizing potential.” 

“Reconnection and integration with my body.  I say I have this ‘knee thing,’ as if the knee is not a part of me.” 

In addition, we are going to explore the HeartMath® system for building resilience and coherence using the HeartMath Inner Balance™ Sensor or Bluetooth® devices.  Each participate will receive one of these devices depending upon your  personal smart device.  

You may know I discovered the HeartMath program after having a pacemaker implanted in 2011 and still feeling extreme fatigue.  The HeartMath system taught me how to regulate my central nervous system using a combination of technology and breathing techniques.  The program was a key component in healing my fatigue.   It taught me how to manage stress efficiently and coherently which conserves energy in the body, mind system.    

The HeartMath System provides the necessary tools so that you are able to move through your interactions and relationships and work and personal responsibilities with ease and flow.   

Improvement in Well-Being and Energy in over 5,500 people 6 weeks after HeartMath program. 

  • 52% drop in exhaustion
  • 52% drop in anxiety
  • 60% drop in depression
  • 60% drop in anger
  • 61% drop in feeling annoyed
  • 24% improvement in the ability to focus
  • 25% improvement in listening ability
  • 30% improvement in sleep

That’s what I’m talking about.

All natural.

No prescriptions.

Scientific results of improved emotional states.  

Sign me up.  

I think you’ll have fun experimenting with the HeartMath system, technology and techniques.
