10 Reasons to Travel to Costa Rica: Diane Sieg 'Find Your Grace" Yoga Retreat Inspires Change

July 28, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Travel is always a worthy goal in our often overworked and overwhelmed lives, but choosing an inspirational retreat like Diane Sieg's "Find Your Grace" Costa Rica Yoga Retreat, January 15 – 20, 2011, can go beyond merely "getting away from it all" to create deeper transformation that endures long after the vacation ends. Sieg, a motivational speaker, author and creator of the CHAOS CURE™, has incorporated her popular 30 Days to Grace yoga-inspired mindfulness program into a rejuvenating eight-day retreat at a secluded beachfront eco-resort on Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula.

"Something about changing your environment and energy on the outside allows your inside passions and perceptions to awaken, renew and revitalize," says Sieg. "Travel to a tropical paradise like Costa Rica releases us from our everyday habits and perspective, creating the perfect opportunity to move from chaos to calm and spark real life change. My January Costa Rica yoga retreat comes at an ideal time for beginning a new year full of intention – and with real take-home tools to make the desired changes last beyond our usual list of New Year's resolutions."

Sieg, who has facilitated retreats for 15 years, shares her top 10 reasons to travel to Costa Rica with her Find Your Grace yoga retreat this January:
1. Totally unplug from your "normal" life
2. Practice all-level yoga twice a day, or not at all!
3. Step into the flow of grace and set your intentions for the new year
4. Partake of daily adventure opportunities that include horseback riding, jungle hikes, surfing lessons, Thai massage, farmers markets, spa treatments and poolside reading
5. Enjoy an intimate venue with private pool and beach
6. Experience a different country and culture in a group setting
7. Exchange traditional "New Year's resolutions" for a chance to start your new year full of grace and intention
8. Indulge in four fabulous locally and organically sourced meals a day with dessert every night
9. Be supported by like-minded people, yet have as much solitary time as you choose
10. Have a relaxing and rejuvenating retreat to look forward to in January, through the hectic December holiday season
