Your Fearless Leader
Delaney Wray Griffin began practicing yoga in January 2014 and received her 200RYT certification in June 2015 through Del Sol Yoga in Austin, TX. Since then, Delaney has helped host a 500 hr yoga teacher training and a yoga retreat through Nicaragua Yoga Institute, and taught over 500 hours of classes, from beginners to advanced students. She specializes in a flow based class, focusing on the breath guiding the movement.
"Our bodies are made to naturally move & flow. When you can create a fluid breath matched with continual movement, you tap into something really special."
Delaney started her Health Coaching career and founded Happy Meets Healthy in January 2016. Her main focus as a coach is to create a safe space for transformation through support, accountability, and a perfect pace of push towards your goals. Personal growth does not happen while sitting on the surface, so Delaney invites you to you dive deep into your physical challenges, your emotional hesitations, and your mental blocks to unveil the freest and most empowered version of you.
"The moment you can become completely vulnerable with your faults, your past, your fears, and your areas that lack authenticity, is the moment you realize you are invincible."
Delaney was raised in Denver, CO, spent most of her twenties in Austin, TX, and now lives in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua with her husband, Grant, and one-eyed pup, Mylo. When she is not teaching, Delaney is running her business as a health coach, exploring different parts of Nicaragua, working at a local health food cafe in town, or soaking up the sun at 1 of the 7 local beaches.
TreeCasa is tucked in the jungle about 20 minutes northwest of San Juan del Sur. The resort has sprinkled their tranquil property with canopy suites & treehouses, 2 pools with a waterfall dive & slide, full restaurant & bar, 2 yoga decks (a jungle & ocean-view deck), a private beach, miles of hiking, mountain biking, & horseback riding trails, & an organic garden where their team of chefs create the freshest meals from scratch.
Can you see yourself peacefully waking up in the tree tops, listening to the music of the jungle?
This wellness retreat is perfect for individuals, couples, or friends looking to kick-start the new year thriving as the BEST versions of themselves. In just 7 days, learn to channel your brightest self through yoga, meditation, journaling, healthy food, sobriety (no alcohol), and individual + grouping coaching in an unmatchable environment that only encourages growth. Between adventure, relaxation, new experiences, culture, and connection back to self, this is not just an opportunity to "get away", but to step back, slow down, and create your own vision for what you truly want in this new year, so that you can return back home grounded, connected, and inspired to go after your best life.
Each day will start off grounding with yoga, meditation, journaling, and/or coaching. We continue our morning with a nutritious breakfast followed by an adventure. Each activity has been carefully placed into the itinerary to make sure you have a proper balance of experience through culture, relaxation, self-work, food, environmental learning, unique classes, physical fun, and eye-opening connections. The day winds down together with dinner and either a group or individual turn-down exercise through coaching, journaling, meditation, or gentle yoga.
