Gratitude & Abundance


Dec 28th, 2023 - Jan 2nd, 2024

  • Are you looking for something special this New Year's Eve?

  • Do you feel called to end the year 2023, all its stories, experiences & lessons with reflection & mindfulness?

  • Do you want to call in something big for the New Year?

  • Are you called to create a powerful start into 2024 & make your dreams come true?

Conscious Creation & Manifestation for 2024

In this New Year's Retreat we will dive deep into the power of gratitude & honor what this year has given us. We will bring the year 2023 to a close in a conscious & mindful way setting the tone for a powerful 2024. With different tools like Yoga, Meditation, Coaching Practices, Vision Board Creation, Psychodrama, Sound Journey, Kirtan & Cacao Ceremony we will clear out the old & raise our vibrations for an empowered new adventure in the new year..

By leaving this year behind on a positive note, dipping into emptiness & creating space for the new, we invite the New Year in with our full power & focused intention. A retreat to manifest your dreams into reality.

We will start with grounding, with time for introspection and reflection, looking at your limiting beliefs and how they held you back in some ways in 2023. With a clean slate, you will spend the second last day of the year in silence: the inner space is clean, your internal drive emptied and thus full of storage space for the new experiences 2023 holds in store for you. 

From this empty space full of possibilities, you will invite in what you want to manifest for the year to come. The last day of the year will be fully focused on this powerful intention. The experience coming to a peak in the evening with a very special “Manifest the New You” Party. For this party you will all arrive as your future version and stay in character the whole evening, supporting each other and creating strong manifestation vibrations together. And of course, have some fun.

The first day of the New Year will be all about creating the circumstances for the life you want, calling it in with meditations, rituals, practices, and a vision board workshop. We will anchor in the vibrations of an empowered New Year with special exercises for you to spread your wings and fly into the New Year full of anticipation, excitement, and strength.

This is a retreat for those of you who feel called to take responsibility of their creative forces & channel them to design a powerful, blissful & magical New Year.

"The key to manifestation is that when the doors of opportunity open, you have to walk through them."

Are you ready to take that step?

Ever since I came in contact with Ayurveda a decade ago when I was at a crossroads I have been on a deep dive into a yogic life, the search for truth and the path of healing.


After completing a Hatha Yoga Training in India, I founded Sapana Yoga in Mallorca, Spain, in 2015. My search led me to take many different trainings like Ayurveda, Yin Yoga, Qi Gong, Akashic Records, Bhakti Yoga, Transformational Facilitation, Vegan Nutrition, Coaching & more.


I have always been called to keep on transforming & finding my inner truth, to find clarity on where I want to be in life & to follow my heart and intuition. 


This has led me to study with many spiritual teachers around the world. They helped me to uncover my true nature, advance along my path, undertake deep transformation, live a life dedicated to the spiritual journey & eventually open a Retreat Center with my beloved in the jungle of Costa Rica.

Learn more about me & Gabriel on my Blog or Instagram.

I started on the path of yoga 9 years ago with the aim to find balance and wellbeing.


The more I practiced the more I wanted to know. This lead me to travel all over the world trying different yoga styles and practicing with many teachers until I found a path that resonated with me: Jnana Yoga, the path of knowledge.

I was introduced to self-inquiry and Ramana Maharshi’s teachings by Mooji in India and recognized the truth of it immediately: going deep into the “I am” sense in the search of our true nature.  

I have been in the search of truth from a very young age and the path of yoga exposed that truth in a clear way, in a way that I could understand. 


This is what I would like to share with you at our Retreats & Trainings here at Shankara Retreat Center in Costa Rica. Let me help you find your truth along your path.
