Elisa is the founder of 3rd Eye Yoga Adventures and a single mother to her beautiful 14 year old daughter. A NYC transplant, living in Ojai, California since 2001, she has spent the last 8 years hosting and organizing yoga retreats & teacher training's from her family Villa in Playa Negra, Costa Rica.
Years of attending retreats herself, she witnessed retreat leaders becoming overwhelmed with the handling of the logistics side of events while leaders were facilitating guest/students at the same time. Elisa had a vision to one day provide a Full Service Retreat Planning business that would handle all the management and bookings for yoga teachers and studios across the US & Canada .
Her vision manifested in 2011 when her brother moved to Barcelona, Spain. They had decided to use their family Villa in Costa Rica as a retreat venue. Elisa has organized and hosted numerous retreats including some large teacher trainings. Her dedication & passion as a retreat organizer, has opened doors to other venues looking to collaborate with her. She has currently put together some new location venues with an amazing, dedicated team that will surely inspire you to come back time and time again.
