A Radical Experience for Women
New Dates coming up soon!
with Kassia Meador
What is AWA?
A Week Awake is a radical experience for women to connect, recharge, and empower themselves in a magical tropical paradise. AWA is for ALL WOMEN, from a beginner to an experienced surfer and from a yogini to a lady that was never seduced by yoga before.
We are hosting our retreats at an amazing unrevealed beachfront villa, providing you with the safest container to be able to connect deeply with nature, other women and yourself. We will share the Pura Vida lifestyle of this unique laid-back destination, surf our hearts out in warm blue waves and meet an amazing local community of like-minded women that inspire a mindful and simple way of living.
After so many years of living in this town and with the support of an amazing welcoming community, we’ve decided to shape what we call “our greatest week at home” to share the beauty and magic of this remote town with you.
We have carefully picked the AWA team and the location where this beautiful experience will unfold. We chose an amazing unrevealed beachfront Villa, providing you with the safest container to be able to connect deeply with nature, your new friends and yourself. The villa features luxury amenities with comfortable rooms and it sits right where the ocean meets the jungle.
We’ve put together a program supported by the most experienced and fun team of surf instructors that will adapt to your personal goals and help improve your skills in warm blue waves.
We will explore different styles of yoga with world acclaimed teachers on our beautiful beachfront deck. We will stretch, sit still, meditate and learn through the benefits of pairing yoga and surfing together. We will share enlightened playshops to connect with our highest selves, create mental space and become more in tune with our body.
You’ll be hosted and held at all times by an amazing local community of like- minded women that will share only good vibes and inspire through their simple and mindful way of living. AWA will absolutely expand your body, mind and soul while living the relaxed lifestyle of this unique laid back destination. All of that above while eating the yummiest and healthiest foods, prepared with only fresh and organic ingredients and made at home with love.
Our lodge in Costa Rica is located in Mal Pais, a small and tranquil neighbourhood just south of Playa Santa Teresa. While in recent years Santa Teresa has seen a boom in development, this side of town has retained its laid-back and serene fishing village atmosphere with unspoiled nature and dreamy surroundings. We are walking distance to the ocean within easy reach to surf breaks, cozy restaurantes and charming shops.
The Villa understands comfort, taste and style while looking onto a pristine and peaceful beachfront setting. It features luxury amenities with comfortable rooms and it sits right where the ocean meets the jungle. Wake up to the sound of monkeys howling and end the day with a dinner under the moonlight next to a beach bonfire.

Meet the Team
We first met in Nepal in 2015 during a very powerful Earthquake. This experience bounded us so deeply that anytime we create together the world shakes a little and magic happens. We are both big life lovers and share a deep passion for the ocean and the tropical paradise we get to call home.
Together, supported by an amazing community, we are shaping the most magical times for women from all over the globe. We love to attract all the good things and that is exactly what we are putting into AWA, our latest project and we believe the most badass creation so far.
