Akhanda Shakti is an integrative fusion rooted in tradition. It is the blend of two approaches (Hatha & Vinyasa). Dedicated to the traditional ancient teachings of the Hatha Yoga lineage. Zarelly is also committed to a re-wilding for the liberation of the divine feminine.

“All our movements are born from the breath, it is very important for me to transmit this in each practice so that the people who attend can find a harmony in the flow of asanas and the alchemy of their body, bringing each inhalation and each exhalation to the process of meditation that is enjoyed in the practice of yoga. Creating a dance with the breath we find a space of stillness that allows us to witness the beautiful body soul union in each of the asanas.”


The theme during the week will be Embrace WHO you are.

Invite, Kindness.

A retreat is a great way to give back to your body; you can focus more energy towards cleansing, repairing, rejuvenating, and healing.

Our body naturally detoxifies itself everyday, with additional support we can free up energy, heal more effectively, and feel confident and at ease – body, mind and soul.

Through a series of sacred morning practices and holistic healing methods, you will experience lasting detoxification, inner appreciation and deep nourishment from the inside out.

Costa Rica is a spiritual heaven and a complete sanctuary for inner awakening and personal growth. Join me daily for guided meditations, Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Cleansing breathing sessions and essential oil blending among a medicinal grade Cacao Ceremony.

I want to offer a space for seekers.



The context of the ceremony is a safe and beautiful space that supports meditation (reflection and connection to the “larger aspects of yourself”), chanting and ancestral healing practices will be present along the ceremony. This creates a rare opportunity to explore and sit with the stories of the heart and to identify areas that are causing you restriction, limitation and pain. You have the chance to relax deeply and receive insights, inspiration and creative ideas that can give you a clarity on the “next steps” of your life and where you can support your overall health. Cacao, sacred plant medicine of Costa Rica; beautiful and extremely gentle cacao spirit will carry your soul to the vibrant frequency of the guardians of the land.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Avoid caffeine and alcohol on the day, and eat light meals.



This 1 hour workshop is an invitation to explore the somatic language of your Nervous System. Our body is born as a living, receptive, expressive, interactive vessel. The first language we know are sensations, even before we learn how to communicate through words, there where sounds and sensations. Sometimes this capacity to connect with sensations on our body is interrupted in time by trauma. This gathering is for those who are willing to walk that path of healing trauma from a whole new perspective and slow down. Give yourself time of integration. Is very important, falling into a pattern would be overdoing, working without any resting time. By nurturing and exploring sensations in our body, we can find new tools to self-regulate effectively our Nervous System. Together we can create a space to transform in a safe manner without any judgment. Are you ready to move patterns from your body temple and allow them to flow through you?

***Price is $50 for each workshop, or $90 for both.
