February 24 - March 1, 2024 at Lapazul, Costa Rica

Imagine Yourself...

Imagine the warm breeze flowing into your ocean view room as your eyes gently awaken to the day. The sounds of the jungle invite your body to explore the nature trails, take a relaxing dip in the infinity pool, or savor the tastes of the chef-prepared local farm-to-table cuisine.
Imagine connecting with an intimate group of like-minded people, as we collectively take a journey through strength, solitude, rest and reflection. You will be guided through movement and stillness. You will experience the area around us, and the serenity of our home for the week.
Imagine getting pampered with a private outdoor massage. Imagine the vibration of your body during a sound healing. Imagine giving yourself permission to say yes to yourself on a whole new level! This is Costa Rica, this is Saying Yes to You - Luxury Self-Care Retreat.

Here's What People Are Saying...

About Your Retreat Leader...

Pamela Zimmer lives in Reno, NV with her husband Will and their two boys, Zackery and Brayden. After thirteen years as an architect, Pamela quit her career for motherhood. Postpartum depression and bankruptcy turned her life upside down, but also showed her a new possibility. If you would have said that someday she’d be a professional speaker, an award-winning entrepreneur, life-coach and bestselling author, she would have laughed. Today, that is exactly what she does, living life on her terms, embodying her work of self-care. She is a 7x Bestselling Author, sought-after International Speaker, featured guest on countless podcasts, radio shows, TV and telesummits, and recently was a Top 10 finalist for Saleswoman of the Year through the Professional Saleswomen of Nevada, and a nominee for the Top 20 Most Powerful Women of the Sierra Nevada. Pamela loves God, yoga, spa days and bubbly, and cozying up on the couch with a blanket, popcorn and a movie. She enjoys the outdoors, playing soccer with her boys, and her week never seems complete without writing - whether it’s poetry, a blog post or working on one of her new book projects. She’ll be the first to tell you, self-care isn’t selfish, it’s essential.

Welcome to Costa Rica and Lapazul! Whether you chose to be in Costa Rica for a day or two prior or you are just flying in, today is the day we will all meet together at the San Jose airport (SJO) prior to our quick 30 min flight to Quepos (XQP) and private transfer to Lapazul. Our domestic charter flight will leave SJO at 11:35am, and we will arrive to Lapazul at approximately 1:00pm.

Upon arrival at Lapazul you'll enjoy a welcome drink and appetizers, get checked in and settled into your room and take a deep breath. Ahhh, you made it!

We will have an opening session to welcome and introduce everyone, and set up the week ahead, followed by a magnificent sunset and dinner. 



We will begin our day with morning movement, breakfast and our first session - all about strength. Our adventure today will be a private Beach BBQ Lunch at Playa Linda. As the first full retreat day after traveling, this afternoon will have plenty of time for relaxing in the infinity pool, walking the nature trails, or simply napping before the sunset / dinner hour. Dinner tonight will have live entertainment with a local musician.



Our focus theme today is all about solitude. We will experience a full day on property, complete with a 90 min sound healing session in the afternoon. 



Water has always been a sacred energy source of calm and rejuvenation. On our adventure to the Nauyaca Waterfall today we will explore what it means to find and experience deep, rejuvenating rest (and we might have some fun too!). We will return to Lapazul for an afternoon session, massages, sunset and dinner.



Today begins with our typical morning movement, breakfast, and group session. We will adventure off to Dominical in the afternoon for some optional shopping or beach time. We'll return in time for some early sunset pool time before dinner.



Today is a guided experience at Manuel Antonio National Park, with lunch at a typical local restaurant. We will return to Lapazul for another afternoon of relaxation in the infinity pool, exploring trails, napping or your massage. Our final sunset and dinner with a closing celebration will conclude our last full day all together.



Depending on departure time, we will enjoy breakfast or brunch together before heading back to Quepos airport for the short flight back to San Jose. From there we will give our final hugs goodbye and safe travels.

Why Come To Costa Rica...

There are probably a thousand reasons why you shouldn't come to Costa Rica. People are relying on you, depending on you to be somewhere - kids, family, co-workers, clients, your boss. You've got bills and expenses, retirement to save for. To say you're busy with life and work already would be a vast understatement - I mean really, do you even have time to come?

We could make a list a mile long of all the reasons you "can't" come to Costa Rica... and they would all be valid.

Instead, let's choose one reason why you should. One reason why you deserve to be here. One reason why you belong. One reason to Say YES to YOU!

Think about your family, your work; think about the world. Don't they all deserve you at your best? Don't YOU deserve to be at your best?

What if YOU were the one reason to come to Costa Rica? Because you want to. 

There's a little voice in your head that's telling you to go. I know it's there, otherwise you wouldn't still be reading this. Listen to that voice. Trust your instinct and give yourself permission to say yes. Take the first step, we don't have to figure out all the details just yet - and I'll be here to help you along the way. 

It's a journey. Your journey starts right now. I give you Permission...
