Reset to Revive
RETURN TO YOUR NATURAL STATE OF BEING
In 2009, my fiancé (and now my husband), JC launched a Surf and Yoga Retreat encompassing healthy food, lots of surfing and yoga and guests thrived in that environment. We noticed they were delving deeper and finding their authentic selves within the daily framework provided so we requested feedback. Collectively we learned their real desire was to reframe their habits to create a sustainable, healthy way of living for more than just one weekend. The four pillars to focus upon were mentality, emotionality, physicality, and spirituality not just for one weekend but for life. This was exciting news for us, and Del Alma was born. The foundation of our Costa Rican Wellness Retreats are holistically transforming. Success can be a two-way street and guests win by transforming their lives and unlocking their unique gifts and talents, and we win by creating templates for their success. Overall, nothing is as satisfying as identifying a need and filling it. From detox and weight loss to stress management, yoga & surf, and digital nomad retreats, we feel genuine passion for helping others discover (and maintain) their unique paths that propel them forward. In the end, everyone has what it takes to break old habits and morph into the healthiest versions of themselves. Sometimes all it takes is connecting with someone who values you and your trajectory for wellness and happiness as much as you do.

The Holistic Reset To Revive Method
