November 12-19, 2022

"This as an invitation to feel more, move differently, and connect with yourself and others in new ways. This is my gift to you, so you can embody this new world that is living inside of you right now that wants to be free, alive, and full of radiance!"

-Phoebe Leona, author of Dear Radiant One...


Embody the radiance of Costa Rica, the perfect outer landscape to explore your emotional inner landscape, and tap into a greater sense of wonder and possibility. With daily rituals and practices of movement and breath, we will unleash the luminous world that lies within.



We’ll also explore the dynamic, rich culture of Costa Rica through its delicious cuisine, wild beaches, jungles, and waterfalls. The week will include plenty of YOU time – reading, relaxing, daydreaming as well as time for deepening your creative exploration.


This very special retreat is inspired by the healing story and practices shared in Phoebe Leona's book, Dear Radiant One...

With daily movement explorations – Mvt109™, Yoga, and more – and the somatic/expanded practices led by Phoebe, you will be guided to an awareness of resistant and stuck patterns, allowing you to shift and release energy, and clear the way for new desires to manifest.

We’ll practice at sunrise and sunset on a terrace looking out on the ocean and jungle of Nosara, meditate on the sandy beaches, nap in a hammock, and take in the expansive, starry sky above.

You’ll return home feeling renewed, joyful, and grounded in who you are, what you want from life, and the possibilities that lay before you. 

Reawaken to your own radiant light...



Retreat to the magical blue zone of longevity in Nosara, Costa Rica. Immerse in yourself in the waves that carry you through life, reawaken your spirit through movement, and rediscover the radiance of your world that is within and all around you.

Meet Your Guide, Phoebe Leona

Hello! I was inspired to begin this nOMadic journey in 2013 after a year full of obstacles. I decided to live in Costa Rica for nine month and it is here that I chose to live out a dream of marrying two of my passions, traveling and teaching. I have always been a firm believer in finding opportunity for growth from all of life’s gifts, so I packed up my life and went for it. I am grateful to have so much to share with you in Costa Rica about my reclaiming of my own story. During our time together, I will share stories and practices that inspired my book, Dear Radiant One... that I hope can be of great service to you and your story as you retreat and reflect with me in Costa Rica.

I teach that through practice, patience, curiosity, courage, and compassion, you can open a world of greater possibilities and deepen the connection to one’s core being. With over 20 years of teaching experience, I am so honored for the opportunity to witness your experience as you discover your own radiance.

““So happy I was able to relax and unwind in Belize with the world’s greatest yoga teacher! This beautiful retreat, located in Thatch Caye, was a perfect balance between relaxation and activity. Phoebe created a spacious itenery with the right balance between optional activities (like snorkeling) and yoga classes. The staff on this small, private island (with beautiful and simple accommodations) was able to accommodate my dietary allergies and a variety of guest’s preferences. I would highly recommend it for someone looking for fantastic yoga classes, a little extra non-yoga activities, and plenty of time reflect.””

“I am so grateful to be a nOMad! Phoebe has been one of those teachers who's lessons stick with you long after the yoga class is over.I joined her on her first nOMad retreat to Costa Rica. This experience was so amazing. We had classes in the morning and at sunset, (occasionally on the beach watching the sun fall behind the ocean as we melted into our final savasana!). During our free time, we all stayed together and explored the area, taking horseback tours through the jungle, zip lines, national forests, and basically just enjoying the sunshine, fresh fruit (the mangos!!), atmosphere and relaxation. ”

“Words only partially cast light on the spiritual experience I embraced while in Bali with Phoebe and nOMad. Traveling across the world alone was a first for me, which presents a little anxiety, however, knowing that I would meet up with other nOMads (most of who I had not met) set me right at ease. From the first day through the last day, Embrace Ritual in Bali was an absolute heart-opening experience for me: correcting misalignment in my body from old scars - some of which I never knew I had, understanding the importance of setting intentions and letting go of expectations, learning the value of giving others space - to include myself, really truly listening to another person, understanding pain is temporary and the ability to forge a new storyline through the pain is possible, through sharing culture, prayer, and love a deeper human connection is possible. Along with these beautiful lessons, I learned laughter and relaxation are important rituals that keep me grounded in the healthy, loving, caring and capable woman that I want to project. One more gain was the unexpected gift of growing a deeper love and appreciation for my husband because of the unwavering support from him and the nonjudgmental support with nOMad. And, I must tell you all that I am still growing - almost 3 months later from this remarkable journey with nOMad Embrace Ritual in Bali. Thank you Phoebe, and thank you to the nOMad support.”
