What if we told you that we literally dry up as we age? According to Ayurveda, this is a natural life occurrence. However, if we amplify it with lifestyle practices that deplete our vitality, we can exacerbate the drying effects and it can start to show up as low libido, arthritic or joint pain, muscle stiffness, dry skin and hair, loss of memoryand other physical, mental and emotional conditions.

According to Ayurveda, none of the above are considered "normal" life aging occurrences AND there is a way to prevent them from happening.

Being (and staying) juicy is an art. It takes knowing what to avoid and what to practice more consistently in your life. Together, Maria Mendola and Serena Arora have over 40 years of knowledge and trailblazing experience in therapeutic yoga and Ayurveda...and are uniting forces!

Enjoy seven days of restorative and healing practices at this earth-centered retreat in Costa Rica featuring daily yoga and Ayurveda sadhana offered to you in an intimate natural environment. The full moon will guide this Spring transformation, and you will be expertly led by the gentle and supportive wisdom and experience of some of the "juiciest" women in their field!

Join this unique opportunity to be a part of a vibrant group experience, authentic healing practices, and unabashed REJUVENATION,  RELAXATION & FUN!
