In 2014 The Retreat was established in the beautiful mountains of Alajuela Costa Rica, with panoramic views of the country’s beautifully diverse nature and the Pacific Ocean. The Retreat is a wellness destination that allows you to let go of the stresses of everyday life and fine tune your body both on the inside and out. Through peace, harmony, tranquility, restorative yoga (that literally ANYONE can do), meditation, and wellness class you are able to reset and rejuvenate and re-tune your focus back into wellness habits that sometimes drift away from all. Combined with organic locally sourced food that create delicious healthy and surprisingly very filling light meals you leave refreshed and revitalized.
The Retreat Costa Rica is the brainchild of Celebrity Chef, two-time best-selling author and Health and Wellness Life-Coach, Diana Stobo. Diana’s goal was to create a wellness center that was literally “Heaven on Earth”. A place where every day people can go to escape the chaos and stresses of their lives and reset their internal sense of balance in a nurturing and gentle environment.
Diana found that through a change in diet and lifestyle she was able to lose over 100 lbs and most importantly- get healthy. And she guides others to heal themselves through her 10-day detox program. She says:
“Like most people, I struggled with my weight most of my life. There was simply too much conflicting information out there that overwhelmed my mind and ultimately my body. In my late 20s while pregnant with twins I reached 247 pounds. Although I wasn’t more than 30 to 40 pounds overweight most of my life, the toxic overload was enough for my body to get sick and exhausted. “It wasn’t until I had myriad of health issues — including thyroiditis, chronic fatigue syndrome, debilitating pain, gastritis, and eventually bleeding ulcers — that I finally took my life into my own hands. With three young children and a full life ahead of me, I decided that it was time to remove the foods that weighed me down. I studied, researched, and ultimately discovered the foods I needed to take out of my diet. But then what was I supposed to eat? The answer was fresh produce: fruits and vegetables that heal the body. I began making juices and smoothies every day. I lost 10 pounds in 10 days, my eyes were brighter, my energy soared, and my life became pain free and full of joy. I then used my background as a chef to create recipes that were as delicious as my old favorites but much better for my body.”
