Casa Alternavida

Casa Alternavida is a boutique wellness retreat center offering a high-touchpoint, guided retreat experience for curious, growth-minded individuals and groups. They set out to inspire renewed passion, refresh purpose, and strengthen the connection to nature and yourself.

The Casa Alternavida team is very intentional about maintaining a high vibrational space. Between guest bookings, they perform an energy clearings, daily calibrations of the space using quartz crystals that are built into the walls creating an invisible grid of love and protection, and encompass the property with plants that grow fresh food with the same high vibration.

"By far one of the most amazing experiences ever. My intentions for this trip was a path for spiritual healing and wellness. I will walk away from this experience with the tools I need to continue through life’s rough moments."

Meet Your Hosts

For over a decade now, Sri has been on a journey of self-discovery and it all began with yoga. As intimidated as she was with her initial practice, her innate intuition pushed her to continue. She later became a certified yoga instructor In March 2017, earning her E-RYT 200 certification in Hatha Yoga and developed leading Vinyasa, Power, and Yin classes both privately and publicly. She is actively continuing her education in earning an additional 300 hour training certification.

As her journey continued, overall health and well-being become more of a priority. From developing a healthier mindset, eating cleaner food, becoming more connecting to her inner self, to living more mindfully in each moment.

 

After co-leading her first retreat in Kenya, Africa in 2021, Sri knew she wanted to continue leading people through this type of transformative experience. She was called to lead this retreat in Puerto Rico, where she has familial roots as well as in Africa.

 

Sri's intention with this retreat is to apply her passion, knowledge, and skillset of yoga that she developed over the years to the guests allowing the opportunity for them to leave a better and higher version of themselves.
