THE DANYASA TRIBE

OUR TEAM

We love our team. You will too. 

MEET OUR CORE STAFF AND YOGA TEACHERS

Our team goal consists of crafting an experience that gets you out of your day to day and into nature, into your body, and more connected to inspiration.

We strive to create moments that you will remember for the rest of your life. Our amazing teachers and staff excel in helping find just what you need… be it that hidden waterfall down the road, that amazing adornment in our boutique or that inner peace and joyous glow we see on people’s faces after a yoga session.

Where it all started.

Sofiah Thom and Brendan Jaffer are visionary leaders known for their transformative contributions to the world of conscious festivals and sustainable retreat spaces.

As the co-founders of Envision Festival and Danyasa Eco Retreat in Costa Rica, over the past 17 years, they have pioneered a movement of healing arts, music, sacred movement, and environmental awareness in the Southern zone of Costa Rica.

WE ARE the artists of our lives. And our artistry is our ministry.

It’s time to value ourselves as artists, creatives, healers, guides, midwives, and priestesses of the light.
