Playa Grande, Costa Rica

Freedom in Paradise: Escape To Costa Rica

With Kelsey & Brendan Gallery
March 8
- March 15, 2025

About This Retreat

Do you ever feel constrained by schedules and expectations? Or perhaps you’re looking for a break from the monotony of everyday life? Are you ready to slow down and enjoy the freedom of time and self-expression?

You are invited to join YoGallery Wellness owners Kelsey and Brendan Gallery for “Freedom in Paradise” for eight incredibly healing and rejuvenating days in beautiful Playa Grande, Costa Rica from March 8-15, 2025.

The intention of this week is simply to have fun. During this time, you’ll enjoy daily yoga classes (Vinyasa and Restorative), delicious local food, a sunset sailboat excursion and lots of downtime to relax by the pool, go to the beach, get a massage or explore around the town. This retreat can be as active or relaxing as you like and will offer ample opportunities to be with yourself and connect with the group.

Imagine waking up everyday to the sounds of the ocean and howler monkeys, being steps away from a stunning beach, having three delicious meals prepared for you daily, and having zero tasks on your to-do list. You’re invited to be a part of this judgment-free space, to be who you are and do with your time what you like. This retreat is designed for you to feel free and get lost in enjoyment!

This week is sure to reward you with:
  • Plenty of downtime to be as active or restful as you like
  • An all-inclusive experience allowing you to have a carefree week
  • Nourishment for your body and your mind
  • Group connection with other community members
  • A new experience in a safe space to shift your perspective
  • Freedom from an obligatory schedule

Meet Your Retreat Leaders

Kelsey

Kelsey

Yoga transformed Kelsey’s life profoundly. Previously prioritizing physical fitness for reasons not always rooted in health, yoga introduced a holistic strength, bolstering her mentally and emotionally to confront life’s challenges head-on. This transformative journey compelled her to share its power.

For years, Kelsey pursued an idealized life, battling self-limiting beliefs about body image, worthiness, and the relentless need for approval. Yet, through yoga, she learned detachment and embraced what she can control, shedding doubts and judgments. As she cultivated self-love, her capacity to love others deepened. Feeling the profound impact of yoga, Kelsey passionately endeavors to impart its wisdom to others. She sees it as her ultimate privilege to guide fellow seekers toward their truths, inner peace, and liberation.
