(Costa Rica Surf + Yoga)
Using adventure as a gateway to personal discovery
2019-2020 Core Retreat
Core program participants who find adventure as a gateway to personal discovery, can immerse themselves in the 7-day surf and yoga retreat in Costa Rica in collaboration with fellow Certified B Corp, Bodhi Surf + Yoga.
Why meet in-person? Disruption of your daily routine has the power to rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. The Institute brings participants together to expand your course-charting and foster new ways of thinking and acting. Break free from old self-defeating patterns or hang-ups. Create the space you need to grow. Build supportive relationships with your peers in a stimulating environment.
Goal 1: Develop a multicultural mindset for each leader’s personal context.
Goal 2: Engage in local community action in a different part of the world to seed global thinking, reflection and awareness of personal impact that leads to a desire to connect and contribute in innovative ways.
Goal 3: Strengthen relationships by idea-sharing, personal support and strategic collaboration to fuel the development of personal leadership action plans.
This retreat provides the backdrop of exploration of mind-body synergy, connection to the natural beauty and community-building. Each day begins with connection to the magic of the ocean and surf lessons. Following surfing, we hold design sessions to develop your leadership action plan. Every day also includes yoga customized to all levels of practice.
Following the retreat, you will have one individual coaching call and team up with your retreat participants on two team launch calls to create an accountability framework and share your leadership action plan. The Institute wraps with a final session dedicated to celebrating of your journey.
The retreat program is limited to 10 participants.
