Teacher Recharge Retreat
A Paradigm Shift in Professional Development
For Teachers BY Teachers
Teachers, this is for you!
Because you selflessly & tirelessly spend each school year nurturing others…
YOU deserve this.
Because you cannot pour from an empty cup, you too deserve to refill & enjoy an overflowing cup, a nourished body, an energized soul.
With years of experience with exhausting and pointless “professional development”…
We seek to transform the paradigm of teacher support.
Are you ready to take your self-care and teaching game to the next level?
Join us in the jungle this summer!
Your students will thank you. YOU will thank you.
We recognize teachers as some of the most compassionate, self-less, & hard-working professionals out there. We believe effective educators start with self-awareness & a commitment to self-care and growth.
Unfortunately, most education settings do not fully honor or recognize the teacher. Nor do they have systems in place to prevent burn-out in ever increasing demanding & rigid teaching environments.
This week long retreat will provide you with daily yoga, relaxation strategies, stress management, nutrition & wellness tips, & self- care practices to ensure you have the tools to be your best self in order to impact the most change in the world.

Anna is a licensed Pediatric Occupational Therapist, Mindfulness Educator, Certified Yoga Teacher & Yoga Therapist, & Holistic Health Enthusiast. She has over 15 years of experience working with children, particularly children with special needs. Having worked in public schools, children’s hospitals, and various clinics; Anna began to notice the disconnect between mind, body, & spirit within the healthcare & education systems. Often finding institutions focused heavily on quantity of care versus quality of care. She left her job at a major children’s hospital to pursue something more. Her journey led her to Costa Rica, where she merged with the Holistic Education Center, Life Project, bringing thriving holistic health, nutrition, mindfulness, yoga, and conservation programs into the existing curriculum. She also directs the growing international programs at Life Project, with the mission of bringing more heart-centered philosophies & strategies to other pediatric professionals, children, and families from around the world.

Alys Robinson founded Life Project Education after departing from a ten-year career in the public school system in San Deigo, California. Seeking opportunities for a less-restrictive, holistic teaching environment, she found home in Costa Rica where her own life project organically began to unfold. After a year of working as a TEFL teacher trainer and administrator, she connected with local families and began offering private tutoring and small-group project-based learning opportunities. Encouraged by local families, dissatisfied with public and private schools locally, Life Project Education evolved into an 8-student, 3-teacher private holistic home education center. Gaining attention for it’s heart-centered, customized approach to learning, Life Project has expanded to include 18 full-time students, 6 team members, international visitors, volunteer specialists, community conservation partners, a thriving internship and fellowship program, and is on track to receiving status as a Costa Rican NGO by 2019.
Based on her graduate studies, and a deep intuition for how children should be nurtured, she has adopted elements of Rudolf Steiner, Maria Montessori, project-based learning, STEM education, gifted education, world learning, free schooling, and place-based learning to create a dynamic education center governed by the best interest of children.
