Imagine sweeping views of mountains and the Mediterranean, free from noise and light pollution. You’ll ease into the day with a glorious yoga practice, followed by a nourishing breakfast prepared with love from ingredients harvested on the property.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance.

Often for less than $100, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.

Your Instructors

“It is a joy and an honor to teach on retreat. I get to see wonderful individuals shed their stress and other trappings of day-to-day life, and get to reconnect with themselves in a whole and healing way. As a teacher, I am able to observe the positive shifts that happen when people step away from their usual habits and patterns and gain a perspective that energizes them to live the life they really want to live! On retreat, this usually also involves a lot of beautiful scenery, delicious food, laughter and support form our community, and some “a-ha” moments. It’s a beautiful thing!”  ~ Lisa

Lisa Feder is a full-time yoga instructor and wellness consultant living in Austin, Texas. She has had a passion for all things wellness for as long as she can remember. While working for over 20 years in the corporate world as a strategic marketing specialist, she began teaching fitness classes in her free time. This led her to explore yoga, and she fell in love with the way it made her and her students feel—physically, emotionally, and energetically.

After teaching part-time for many years, she took the leap and started Being Well Yoga, where she brings yoga on-site to companies to help employees learn how to live healthier, more balanced lives. She also teaches in studios, schools, senior centers, parks, and private homes. Her approach is balanced, and she likes to bring humor, challenge, and deep relaxation into her practices.

isa is especially interested in helping students find a yoga practice that really works for them, and she believes that yoga can provide more ease and comfort to all. She has seen the effects of a healthy lifestyle on her family as well and wants to share. Through classes, retreats, and workshops, Lisa loves helping people explore how to incorporate healthy habits into their daily lives in a fun and sustainable way. She is working on her first book, about bringing mindful habits into your daily life. Her favorite thing is hearing about the positive changes her participants make for themselves.

Lisa, RYT-500, E-RYT-200, incorporates many yoga traditions into her practices. She has certifications in Hatha, Hatha Flow, Kundalini, and I-rest Yoga Nidra. She has had the opportunity to study with Donna Farhi, Sean Corne, Sarah Powers, Anodea Judith, Beth Shaw, Amy Weintraub, Gary Kraftsow, and Richard Miller. She is currently working towards her iRest certification, so that she can help people more deeply tune in to their true nature and find peace, calm, and relaxation. All of her wonderful teachers have shared wisdom that informs her teaching, and she is grateful to them all.


The yoga retreat was exactly what I needed for my personal renewal. Lisa and Dana provided a safe and nurturing space for me to practice yoga and bond with a wonderful group of women. The location was beautiful and relaxing along the Pacific Ocean with all the wonders of Costa Rica. To be able to wake up to the sounds of monkeys and view the setting sun while practicing yoga will be forever etched in my mind.Thank you for this wonderful experience, Lisa and Dana!


One of my favorite things about teaching is watching people arrive for practice in all states of fluster, disrepair, stress, and exhaustion… and then seeing them leave with soft shoulders, smiles, and starry eyes.

I love when someone tries to leave practice without their keys, purse, or shoes.

I love when someone relaxes enough to let a tear flow or to accidentally fall asleep in a deep twist.

I love when someone allows space to soften, release, and be.
Retreats allow for more than an hour of peace. Retreats allow you to soften enough that you remember yourself and release that which defines you and limits you.
” ~ Rebecca

Rebecca has been a full-time yoga teacher for more than a decade; her classes provide a safe, healing space well-suited for all levels of experience ‍and ideal for those seeking comfort and ease in stillness. Rebecca encourages you to delve into self-awareness by exploring the deeper, hidden layers of the self that are in need of acknowledgment and processing. She keeps classes as simple and quiet as possible in order to allow students to decompress and release.

She has trained with a diverse range of teachers exposing her to an assortment of styles. Some of her most influential include Paul Grilley, Yin and Judith Lasater, Restorative. Erich Schiffmann is her soul teacher and reminds her of the importance of trusting her inner guidance, remembering that we all are connected, and accepting that intuition is the true source of wisdom.

Presently, Rebecca resides in Austin, TX, and spends her days teaching yoga and meditation, and creating one-of-a-kind malas. She teaches at several studios around town, offers private classes in her home studio or yours, and teaches corporate classes during the week.

I attended a beach retreat on the South Texas coast with Rebecca. I was going through a rough time and looking for some clarity and guidance to help make change in my life. What happened was more than I could have hoped for. Rebecca’s beautiful words and relaxing, introspective yoga practices helped me let go of a very toxic influence in my life. She is a very nurturing, patient, selfless person, and her teachings reflect that. When I left the retreat, I truly was a changed person. Rebecca helped guide me back to the person I was meant to me, and I will be forever grateful.

Intro to Yin & Yoga Nidra

Sunday, April 14, 1 - 3 pm

Beginning May 6th, LISA FEDER will be teaching our Sunday 5:15pm Yin & Yoga Nidra class. This workshop is meant to introduce beginners and help current practitioners develop a deeper understanding of these two complimentary styles of practice.

The intention of Yoga is to calm the restless mind for the purpose of human uplift. If that sounds good to you, please join us for this workshop in which we explore two approaches to the Yoga practice that work with the body and the mind in a quiet environment where we can still the thoughts and de-stress the body and the mind.

Yin Yoga is a slow practice that improves flexibility, calms the mind, build resilience and self-knowledge. Yoga Nidra is a guided relaxation and meditation technique, that leaves us feeling fully rested, yet alert. Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation and inquiry that helps us deeply relax, loosen the grip on unhealthy habits and patterns and regain perspective.

This workshop will introduce newbies to these deeply relaxing and restoring practices, and help current practitioners enrich their understanding and refine their practice. No experience necessary, reserve your spot today!

Appreciation From Our New Years Day Workshop

Attitude of Gratitude

With Lisa and Janice

Saturday, November 17, 4:30 – 6:30pm
Studio Mantra

The holidays are a time to give thanks and count our blessings. Yet at this time of year you may be so busy, that stress begins to take the place of enjoyment. If you would like to reconnect to the abundance of your heart, we invite you to join us for this workshop. We will open our hearts, physically and energetically, so that you can experience joy and gratitude in this holiday season…and beyond!

Janice and Lisa are friends and “yoga sisters” who have practiced and traveled together over the years. From handstands on the beach, to raising their families, they have found that teaching and practicing Yoga keeps them balanced and sane. They teach with compassion, humor, and above all, joy. Their work with gratitude practices has taught them that there is nothing like an open heart to make everything better!

All levels welcome.
