When a woman listens to herself and begins to live from a place of authentic power, magic happens.

Join us February 9-16, 2025 at our VIP Womans Retreat in Tamarindo, Costa Rica.

It’s time to start putting you first.

Do you always give to others—your family, workplace, friends—but never carve out the time to fill your cup? Do you sometimes feel like you are running on autopilot without a clear sense of what you are running toward? You’re not alone. As women, we’ve been raised to serve others first and put ourselves second. At UnlockingHer, we’re flipping the script.

LA in Norsara
UnlockingHER Retreats

Step into your truth.

We’ve curated a team of holistic practitioners and coaches, along with a private chef, to guide and nourish you on a 7-day transformational journey within. Together, we work with the body, mind, and spirit to clear away what no longer serves you to make room for the version that’s been dormant for far too long.


The most meaningful connection I made was within myself

“If you’re reading this, looking for a ‘sign’ that this retreat is right for you, with a gentle nudge, my hope is that you’ll jump in!  I’m profoundly grateful for my life-changing quality experience that checked every box. Clearly carefully curated and communicated by our host LA.

As a strong, female businesswoman, entrepreneur, mother and caregiver, my masculine energy tends to overpower. I don’t think I even understood how much I needed this retreat, as I’d long since felt disconnected from much of my feminine side.  During my time at UnlockingHer I made meaningful connections with a group of amazing women, however, the most meaningful connection I made was within myself. I did, in fact, ‘unlock’, and can’t help but smile as I write this.”

LA embodies what the retreat is all about

“LA had a just-right balance of leader, host, curator, friend and sister. Knowing when and how to switch into and out of various roles. This alone is an incredible talent that made me feel seen and cared for within the container. LA embodies what the retreat is all about so her authenticity lends so much credibility to the experience.

I am so grateful that this powerhouse woman honored her vision to create these retreats and contribute to the healing of the collective feminine. Wow, what a spark and intensity she brings. I think many hosts would have more rules or attempt more control over the environment. LA allowed for flow, healed by allowing each woman to trust her own rhythms and preferences during the week.”

Goddess energy

Unlocking Her has been the key to unlocking…. 

My wild feminine
My secure power
My unwavering strength
My utmost potential 

I have traveled the roads with Unlocking Her that have led me to uncover my blocks , recognize my unique being, accept the woman that I continue to grow into being … even at the ripe age of 47.   I have found sisterhood amongst strangers.  I dove into aspects of myself and found permission to release in a loving holding tank and surrender to a new vision of my divinity.  The power that this carefully curated capsule we enter into with LA and Michelle, is intoxicatingly beautiful, welcoming and safe.  I cannot imagine my life moving forward without The Unlocking Her retreat as a part of my self care , self love ritual.   

 LA and Michelle continue to amaze me with their goddess energy that simply calls out my own goddess to rise up and shine!  Thank you sisters , for being a big player in my life school and to provide me a new classroom to continue to learn on how I want to show up for myself and everyone in my life ! ”

Deeply meaningful reflection

“This was my first time experiencing a women’s wellness retreat and it was incredible. I didn’t know what to expect and as an introvert, I was worried about spending so much time around other people. But LA and all the guides truly allowed you to honor your intuition and your own retreat experience. It was a just-right balance of rest, deeply meaningful reflection, adventure, spiritual learnings and community. I have girlfriends, but l’ve never had this experience of sisterhood and healing of the feminine that can happen in a space like this one. LA and the team provided a safe container where I could feel seen, respected and rejuvenated. What an incredible reprieve for a mom with small children and a business to run. I will absolutely return to this healing and supportive space. The experience nurtured my spiritual development, my motherhood and my work as an entrepreneur. Thank you.

LA remains steadfast, strong and in control

“LA has an incredible gift of being able to marry physical spaces, experiences and strangers all together in perfect harmony.

The task of each is difficult on its own, a combination of which is next to impossible in perfecting to the level of quality, luxury and outcome LA has been able to master.

From the initial presentation deck and registration to the correspondence/calls leading up to the trip, to the fully detailed itinerary, schedule, trips and tricks. To the moment you arrive and are greeted by her glowing smile and warm embrace, making everyone feel welcome, safe and comfortable from Day 1 to the end, no matter your age, where you are in life, what chapter in your self-healing journey you are in. Even if there is anything going wrong or astray, you would never know as LA remains steadfast, strong and in control every step of the way, not for herself, but for her guests.”

Grateful, Grounded & Unlocked

“I am so grateful for the time I spent at the UnlockingHer Retreat in Nosara recently. I met so many incredible like-minded women who I know showed up in my life for a reason. The gifts I continue to receive from their friendship and support is immeasurable. The accommodations were beautiful. It was my first time in Nosara but it won’t be my last. The private Chef, Madison — not only were her meals incredible but her life stories and inherent “joie de vivre” were infectious. It’s been one month since we all gathered at Casa Arcilla and I can say without a doubt that my life is richer. I’ve been incorporating the modalities I learned into my daily life and feel much more grounded in who I am and how I want to show up in my life. I would highly recommend trusting in Lorianne and what she has cultivated in Unlocking Her. She is authentic and has your best interest at heart, always! It’s an experience you will never forget. It certainly “Unlocked Me”, I can’t wait to see what’s next!”

– Eileen Halpin, Nosara Retreat Guest November 2022

I am profoundly changed

“It’s hard to describe what LA has created with Unlocking Her, it is really powerful and I am profoundly changed by this experience. I feel like I now have my tribe for what I want to build in both my personal and professional life.”

– Sonya D. Nosara Retreat Guest November 2022

How lucky are we as your guests?

“The entire time I have been here I keep telling myself: ‘I have to write LA a letter’. I have so much I want to say that I don’t think it could properly be summed up in a conversation. The singular thought that keeps running through my mind is that I am indebted to you. I don’t think you could fully understand what coming here and experiencing this has meant to me. I am inspired by you. You don’t do things halfway and I don’t mean just in business ventures but in your capacity to give and to feel. You give love, you give praise and you shower people with so much positive energy and you do it with reckless abandon. What a joy it must be for those you love to be loved by you. I am so grateful to you. In the montage of my life, this is the moment that I tell Oprah what it felt like to really be seen, encouraged and loved! I am grateful for all of the experiences here … there aren’t many of you in the world… How lucky are we as your guests?”

Never done anything like this before

“This women’s retreat was pivotal for me. For a long time I felt something in me being held back but had trouble figuring out what it was. Hearing about the retreat piqued my interest. I could not stop thinking about it. Never done anything like this before, let alone gone away without my spouse. The experiences provided to me were restorative and life changing. I discovered my inner strength, power, and release with the cold plunge and the detox. A spiritual awakening with yoga, sound bath, breath work and the detox. The experiences put together with the surrounding environment culminated into life changing affirmations for me. I feel great, and would love to go again”

We ALL need this opportunity

“It’s so difficult to put into words LA, I mean I thought I was already strong and had my shit together, then I experienced all of this and I feel like I have accessed all this power and energy and potential. How do you explain this to women? We ALL need this opportunity”

Past retreat guest

Changed my life!

“I arrived nervous at not knowing if I would fit in. I left reunited with the version of me that I had long ago forgotten and with connections that are deeper than I could have imagined. I can’t thank you enough – changed my life!

– Past retreat guest

such an impact on my life

“How can a group of strangers have such an impact on my life? You are such a light in this world! I am grateful for what you have created and to have witnessed and felt what I cannot put into words right now. What a blessing that the universe connected us.”

– Past retreat guest

Our thoughts become our reality

“‘Our thoughts become our reality’ – I will not forget the conversation around this or the moment it was said – it has really helped me with turning my self doubt into more of a check in, not a confidence crusher. And I want that necklace you wear that says this on the medallion too!”

– Past retreat guest

this is your true calling

“LA you have a special gift of being a very good and relatable leader while also able to create and hold pace for people to be vulnerable. These are not easy things to do and it looked very clear to me, watching you navigate, that this is your true calling.”

– Past retreat guest

dancing in the waves of the ocean

“This is hard for me to put into words. All of the experiences, the connections with women – a new world for me as I haven’t always been able to trust women – and waking every day to being taken care of … I’ve never had this before. I knew that we would be experiencing new things (omg that cold plunge) but I didn’t realize how much fun there would be. From literally swinging at the top of a mountain to dancing in the waves of the ocean to having so much fun at that incredible restaurant you took us to … I am so thankful that I decided to book your retreat. Once a year, women need this once a year (I’m already saving)”

– Past retreat guest

I needed time just for me

“I thought it would be easy to write about my experience but every time I start to get emotional, I miss it so much! Ok. First I want to say thank you. It was hard to have the conversation with my husband because (and I realize this now) I had never told him I needed time just for me. When I described the retreat he said ‘oh so you want to go on a vacation alone’. Yeah a lot to unpack. But in the end he was so supportive even though he didn’t fully understand why (I think?). The best way I can describe my experience is by sharing what my husband said when I returned: “I feel like I got my girl back”. Honestly LA, your retreat saved my marriage. We are communicating and connecting so much better and he now wants to find one like yours for us both to go on – so if you ever have a couples retreat, we are THERE!”
