Devī  Retreat

January 27 - February 3, 2024


Devī (/ˈdeɪvi/; Sanskrit: देवी) is the Sanskrit word for 'goddess'; 'heavenly, divine, anything of excellence.'

Welcome to Devī Retreats! We are so happy you're here. 


Our Devī Retreat is a curated experience for women, designed to strengthen and empower your movement practices. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned practitioner, this retreat is for women of all ages who are interested in cultivating or expanding upon current movement practices. We will explore vinyasa yoga and strength training to offer the body both strength and balance, and will intentionally work to regulate our central nervous systems with our daily restorative practices. Additional workshops will be available to support your movement practice, deepen your mind-body connection, and enhance your functional movement patterns.


In addition to the scheduled offerings, we are including a self-defence class, a surf lesson, and a Reiki / Tameana Healing session.

We chose Casas Kismet as a retreat centre for many reasons - but something extra special about it is that we get the entire venue to ourselves! Our venue hosts, Lizzy and Terry, are lovely and super accommodating. 


"Casas Kismet is located in Nosara, Costa Rica, a quiet surf town known for its world class surf breaks, yoga, and chill vibe. We are nestled on top of a quiet ridge in Playa Pelada, which provides a private and an exclusive space for retreat groups to experience transformation in an intimate setting, while remaining close enough to the beach, shops, and restaurants." For your comfort and convenience, each room is equipped with high speed internet, air conditioning, and outdoor patio to enjoy the fresh ocean breezes!

Our Devī Retreats combine the energies and offerings of Amanda Rico and Amanda Lytle.  Amanda and Amanda have been friends for years, and having taught for a period of time together at Harmony Yoga Haliburton, offer a beautiful balance of the Yin and Yang energies that are the practice of Yoga.  

Amanda Lytle is trained in Tameana, a highly effective vibrational crystal energy healing technique that stimulates deep healing. Tameana helps relieve stress, remove energetic blockages, balances your chakras, and help your body’s frequency become in tune with the electromagnetic field of the Earth. Amanda is honoured to offer you a session, included in your Devī Retreat experience! 

We offer your spirit and soul a balance between activity and down time so your body and mind are able to rest.  Our wish is for you to feel like you’ve recommitted to yourself, have deepened your sense of self-compassion, and feel like you’ve come home to yourself.

There is a variety of accommodation options for your comfort and budget, and feel confident you'll feel aligned with at least one of the options provided. All prices are in USD.

Below is the schedule for the retreat. We have included it here for your viewing and excitement as you prepare for this adventure! Minor changes may occur between now and January of 2024, but our goal is to provide an intentional balance of movement, nourishment, rest, and connection. 

This retreat is yours to spend how you would like, so if you do not want to participate in one of the group activities, please feel free to relax by the pool, or take time for yourself exploring.

An example of a day you can look forward to during our Devī Retreat at Casas Kismet might look like:



Optional Meditation OR Free Time

Vinyasa OR Free Time / Hike / Beach / Spa OR an excursion


Free Time OR an excursion


Tameana Healing Session OR Free Time / Hike / Beach / Spa OR an excursion





Flights should fly in and out of Liberia airport (LIR). Casas Kismet is approximately a 2.5 hour drive from the Liberia Airport to Nosara.


Ground transportation is available and can be arranged by Casas Kismet (for a fee) and waiting for you at the airport in the arrival area for your convenience and peace of mind.


If you need to overnight on the way to Costa Rica or on the way home due to flight options, there is a Hilton Hotel near Liberia Airport.

Consider this is your invite... from our hearts to yours... to answer the call, to choose YOU, to relax, rejuvenate, to move and nourish your body, and to deepen your practice.

With gratitude & love,

                Amanda & Amanda
