A Yoga, Detox, Meditation Journey


A yoga, detox, meditation journey... 

***Postponed due to safety issues in Nicaragua***

August 5-12, 2018

Join Jamie Festa and Gladimar Sturla, of We Rise Together, on a virgin Nicaraguan beach, for a rejuvenating and revitalizing week of detoxifying the mind, body and spirit. Deeply connect with yourself and others, come back to nature, enliven your senses, fully align with your healthy body, and experience pure mental clarity and the joy of being fully present!  

We will be doing a five day juice cleanse and come off in a gentle way on the the sixth day. This process will allow your being to let go of stale energy and waste, making space for self healing to occur. We will be offering relaxing activities and processes to support you, while encouraging you to listen to your bodies energy levels and what feels best for you.  This experience will not just be of the body, but will be a full mental and emotional release and cleanse, as well.  We encourage you throughout this process to be gentle and empowered in your self care.

Together we will co-create memories and experiences of deep connection, clarity, and joy that will forever change your life. You will have new perspectives, tools, and friendships that stay with you when you go. You will leave feeling full.….. heart bursted open, smile wide, body healthy, strong and nourished, and that “sparkle” in your eyes. ALIVE

Now is your time to let go of all that does not serve you and revitalize and rejuvenate your whole being. Don't let anyone or anything get in the way of the experiences you want and deserve in this life. Come and join us for this beautiful, awakening, healing journey inside.
