Ready for the jungle, goddess?

This is your invitation to join me in my home, where the wild jungle meets the Caribbean ocean, for an intimate, authentic, transformational week to remember. A week to remember your wildness, your power, your softness, your tribe, your purpose, your true nature. A week to step up into your light, so that you can start walking the path you were born here for.

If you feel the calling, it’s time to answer.


A week of deep personal inquiry, exploration, connection, liberation, play, and nature immersion, in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Expect yoga, dance, women’s circles, ceremonies, and magical adventures.


Myself and my dearest friends, teachers, and healers will create a loving, liberating space for transformation and healing. This retreat is for women of all colors, shapes, and stories, who are ready to embrace a free, wild, heart centered way of life.


In Playa Chiquita, on the South Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, where the lush jungle meets the turquoise sea, in our private, intimate retreat house with a magical path through the jungle to a secluded beach. 


To nurture ourselves in sacred space, remember our place in nature, allow our sensual femininity to swim free, break old patterns that no longer serve, find the courage to walk our unique paths, and come home to love.  

What’s Included?

7 nights accommodation in our beautiful and private jungle chic home across from a stunning beach, this is our sanctuary and sacred space.

Transportation to and from the airport in San Jose, Costa Rica as well as all local transportation. Plus you get your own beach bicycle cruiser to explore the area in your free time.

Daily organic, vegetarian, gluten-free meals made by our personal natural food chef (also a beautiful goddess yoga teacher friend of mine). This food is not only innovative and delicious, it’s genuinely healthy. Women who come on these retreats consistently ask for the recipes at the end because the food is SO good.  

Daily yoga practices that go deep into the multi-dimensional layers of you. Explore relevant life themes through physical movement and meditation, accessible for all levels. These are taught by myself and some of the best teachers in Costa Rica.

Unique and transformational dance meditations crafted and developed by yours truly, based on the practice that has changed my life. Expect to go deep into your sensuality and free your wild child.

Compassionate listening and sharing circles to open and connect in safe, loving ways. I cannot explain enough how tremendously healing this can be, you’ll just have to experience it for yourself.

Magical nature excursions to my favorite places in the area (nature beaches, waterfall hike, chocolate forest, and more)

Women’s circle and cacao ceremony. We’ll drink the sacred medicine of cacao which is indigenous to the area and share in a powerful women’s circle guided by my dear friend Hannah who has led these healing circles all over the world.

One bodywork session with a local healer. Puerto Viejo has some of the best healers in the world and women on past retreats have expressed that these sessions are tremendously awakening.

Nurturing alone time. I feel that one of the most healing things you can do is just walk in silence down a deserted beach. Surrender yourself to the ocean, let the sand hold you, and remember your true nature. You’ll have plenty of free time to explore and nourish.

Real deal sisterhood. Since you read my blog you know how important authenticity is to me. This is 1000x more evident on my retreats. We truly show up for ourselves and one another in genuine, powerful ways.

My full attention, support, and mentorship as your facilitator, sister, and friend for an entire week. If you’ve ever wanted to learn from me, this is the deepest way.  

Intimate small group setting. To foster trust, intimacy, and depth there’s space for just ten special women on these retreats.

… so much more 🙂

Reviews From Past Participants

“On a scale of 1-10 it’s a 100! I feel like a new woman, so much more in touch with my emotions and feelings and with a stronger voice. It left an impression on me that I will take with me for my lifetime.”

The classes absolutely blew my mind! I had no idea that ‘yoga’ would be so deep and powerful and bring out so much in me both physically and mentally.”

“10 out of 10. It was spiritual, enlightening, adventurous, and all-around fabulous. I feel like I loved more in that week than I did in the past year.

“The overall experience is beyond words for me. I can’t think of anything I wish was different, it was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life so far.

“12/10. I am forever changed and transformed more in a matter of a week than I could have ever imagined going into the experience.”

“The whole retreat experience was absolutely insane! I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would fall in love with every single person who came together in this group, open up and show so much of my vulnerable self, grow and transform faster than I could comprehend, and connect so much with the vibrant life of Costa Rica all in a week! If I could change anything, it would be that I wish it didn’t have to end.

“100 of of 10. No joke. This was the single most important week of my life to date. How do you rate that?”

Hi, I’m Camille.

Six years ago I found myself in this jungle.
Her magic awakened a deep calling within me and I have never been the same again.

Since then I’ve traveled all over the world gathering wisdom and exploring deeper and deeper layers of myself. I’m a certified Vinyasa yoga teacher, DANCEmandala facilitator, meditation guide, and student of all things mystical and practical that bring us closer to the truth of love.
I give my full presence and attention to our retreat all week long and I love going deep with you! xx

Our Sanctuary

To create the most intimate, sacred environment possible, we stay in our own private retreat home with a magical path through the jungle to a deserted nature beach.

Our Meals

Our private, in home chef feeds us all week long with local, organic, vegetarian tropical fusion food. The food is truly a highlight with anything from chia pudding cacao parfaits to veggie tacos with giant bowls of guacamole and sweet plantain ceviche.

Our Practices

Life is a dance. An invitation to enjoy the exploration of being in this human body here on Earth. Our practices reflect this intention as we dive into artfully chosen themes in our yoga, meditations, dances, circles, ceremonies, and excursions. It’s all woven together to help you become more you.

Our Tribe

We are a collection of unique souls, walking our own authentic paths, together for a unified purpose: love. We are here to love ourselves, one another, and this Earth more and more as grow. We create sacred space where all beings are safe to be exactly as they are.

This retreat is for you if…

You are ready to make a big change in your life. You know it’s time to show up for yourself and the world more fully, and you’re ready to do the inner work to shine as brightly as you know you can.

You desire to live a free, soulful life, connected with community and nature, making the world a more beautiful place by doing what you love.

You want to feel healthy, vibrant, full of life. To awaken your senses, nourish your body, and reset your rhythm with the pace of nature.

You enjoy yoga, movement exploration, dance, and want to dive deeper into spiritual practices. You’re ready and excited to unravel your old patterns, face your inner demons, and learn how to love yourself like you’ve never been loved before.

You want to heal the wounds of sisterhood, not just for yourself but for our collective, by being vulnerable and compassionate in a safe group of women.

You want to show up fully, challenge yourself, lean into discomfort, and face your fears for the sake of your personal growth.

You know you’re born to do something positive in the world and are seeking the inspiration and empowerment to step even more fully onto your path.

You resonate with what I share on my blog and you want to walk in a similar direction. You connect with my words, my perspective, my lifestyle, and you want to receive what I have to give.

Something in your heart is telling you yes right now. Your intuition knows best, listen to it!

**This retreat is not for everyone, and that’s ok! This retreat is specifically for women who want to go deep within themselves for the sake of growth and transformation, are up for a lot of physical activity in hot tropical weather, prefer authenticity over luxury, and are excited to go beyond their comfort zone. If this retreat isn’t for you, I hope you find the perfect retreat that is.**

“I cant express how immensely happy I am that I chose to do this retreat. I now have amazing lifelong friends I wouldn’t have had prior to coming, and a brand new perspective to life that I know is only going to bring in more positivity. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who needs to hit the reset button, who wants to unleash their inner child, and who is seeking to really find out their truth which has been lying within you all along.” – Tyler Renee 

“I signed up for the retreat to relax a bit and practice yoga. What I got was so much more than I could ever expect or even imagine. I laughed, cried, loved, and grew with amazing women whose bonds I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The adventures in the jungle, at the beach, with the wild life, with the culinary delights, within myself and with the other women on this retreat made this an amazing, unforgettable experience.” – Liz

“I had so much that I needed to let go of and I felt that Camille was the first person who was telling me through her words that it was ok to just surrender. It was magic and exactly what I needed in life! Camille knows how to touch your soul through her teachings and encourage that healing process so we can become the best version of ourselves. ” – Krista

“From the opening to the closing ceremony, Camille guided us into a safe haven of sisters in which I was able to explore my deepest thoughts, awaken my inner child, rejuvenate my soul, and ultimately, discover MY bliss…the jungle was a bonus!” – Sarah

“Camille puts all of her energy into making the retreat inspiring, safe, and wonderful for each participant. This is a unique and special experience worth every penny. You will leave with a greater appreciation for life.” – Dagny

“Arriving is like taking a leap off a cliff and landing in soft, billowy union with some of the most interesting, open and non-judgemental women you will ever meet. Leaving is a bittersweet celebration of love, power & friendship. Expect your brain to be filled, your legs to be tired and your heart to be cracked wide open. How, you ask? You’ll only know if you go. ” – Lori

To call it a retreat really doesn’t do it justice. I’ll call it an arrival. An arrival to the self, to nature, to community, to your truth. Be ready to show up in ways you never knew you could, to transcend your limitations and to fall madly in love with life.” – Sonja

What Camille has created with this retreat can hardly be put into words. Just sitting here thinking about it my heart fills to the brim and overflows. While on this retreat I experienced so much more than I expected or knew could be possible. I went not knowing what I was looking for and taking home with me exactly what I needed. Every moment, every plan, every excursion and even meal put together in this retreat was built with her entire heart and soul. Camille’s retreat showed me more than just a beautiful country while spending time on myself to heal and recharge, it showed me a way of life I didn’t know could exist in such a beautiful harmony. Seeing it meant believing it and I was able to then visualize it for myself, a gift I am eternally grateful for. Go on this retreat it will be the greatest gift you can give yourself!” – Amber

Q: What’s the best airport to fly into and how do I book the best deal?

A: You will need to land in San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) at the latest the morning of November 5th. The shuttle will pick you up near the airport at 12 noon to bring you to our retreat house. On November 12th the shuttle will bring you back to San Jose by 11am (plan to spend a night in San Jose or take a late night flight). To get good flight deals I recommend using Google Flights and checking flights in and out of major hubs near you.

Q: I’m over 50, am I too old for this retreat?

A: The typical age range of women who attend these retreats is 20 – 40, however we have had women 50-65 years old come. We create a loving, inclusive environment no matter your age. What’s more important for your safety and comfort is your physical condition. These retreats are very active and we will be immersed in the natural elements. Are you able to ride a bicycle for half an hour? Can you hike up a muddy trail and walk across slippery rocks? Can you walk down a beach with lots of fallen branches and trees? Are you up for doing yoga twice a day? Are you up for being in tropical heat? There are women who are 20 who will say no, and women who are 80 who will say yes. What does your body say? If you need a more gentle, nurturing retreat which is totally beautiful and valid, this may not be the right experience for you.

Q: Will there be free time?

A: Yes! Free time is very important to me and I want you to have the space to explore and rest and be alone. We’ll typically have one full adventure day followed by one free day for a nice balance of group connection and personal freedom.

Q: I want to come, but I’m concerned about the cost. Do I have options?

A: I want to make this retreat as accessible as I can, while still honoring the tremendous value I offer. To make it more affordable, I offer custom payment plans. A $500 nonrefundable deposit is required to reserve your spot, from there you can pay your balance monthly. The retreat must be paid in full before your arrival.

Q: I’m still not sure. Can I contact you with questions?

A: Of course! Send your email to camille@thisamericangirl.com and I’ll personally get back to you as quickly as I can.
