A fresh start to re-energize and embark upon a healthier path.

With all the toxicity in the world today, all of our bodies need a break from time to time – a fresh start to re-energize and embark upon a healthier path. AmaTierra offers 7-night detox programs for those seeking to cleanse and purify in a safe way, guided by a certified natural health professional in a serene and beautiful environment.

AmaTierra’s quiet rainforest environment offers the ideal setting for rejuvenation and restoration. The sounds of nature instill the ambiance around you with a calm serenity to disentangle any stress in your mind, allowing you to cleanse your entire being.

AmaTierra approaches detox with the mentality that different people require different types of cleansing with respect to their unique bodies and respective lifestyles. Call it different strokes for different folks. We cater your detox program to suit your body type, physical constitution, lifestyle and diet.

Some people do well with juice fasting, while others need more nutritional support, for example. Some may need a focus on liver cleansing, others on the colon or kidneys. Registered AHG Herbalist, AmaTierra Owner and Wellness Director Jill Ruttenberg works with you personally to guide you through your detox program. You’ll feel safe and nurtured, knowing that your program is specifically designed for you.

The body does not exist separate from our thoughts, emotions and spiritual state of being. Feeling supported in a serene environment conducive for contemplation and rejuvenation of your whole Self is very important when cleansing. AmaTierra’s tropical rainforest setting, emanating “Beloved Earth” energy with all the life, sounds and sights of nature, provides the ideal atmosphere for you to unravel layers of stress from the inside-out. Following your detox program, you will re-enter your life at home knowing a more relaxed and clear-minded version of your True Self.

For a deeper understanding of our holistic, personalized detox philosophy and learn the type of detoxing that may be best for you, read this article written by Jill Ruttenberg, Registered Herbalist & Nutritionist, AmaTierra Owner & Wellness Director.

Hardwood furniture and a locally harvested teak wood ceiling bring the ambiance of the forest into your room.

    How to get started on your way to a Cleaner, Clearer Self

    First, think about what you really want to achieve from a detox, and be sure you are doing it to enhance your health, rid your body of accumulated toxins and make a new start toward healthier living. Detoxing is not a healthy way to lose weight, as lasting weight loss requires diligence and lifestyle changes; however, our program can help jumpstart this kind of meaningful change in your life.

    Second, inquire about availability for the time you would like to come. Individual Detox is offered at AmaTierra all year long with the exception of the month of October and peak high-season dates December 20 through January 3. Scheduled detox retreats are offered from time to time for you to join a group of others committed to detoxing the right way (see our retreat calendar to find a detox week that works with your schedule).

    Upon booking, we will send you a questionnaire for you to fill out and return to us, after which you will receive suggestions on preparing for your detox program.

    From all of us at AmaTierra, we applaud you for taking health matters into your own hands and having the desire to make a change that will improve your quality of life for years to come.

      Staying at AmaTierra is one of those experiences you won't soon forget. I was looking to disconnect from my hectic NYC life and find some quiet, good food, and yoga, so I signed on for the 7-day retreat. I got much, much more. The little resort was tucked in the middle of a beautiful rainforest. Yoga every morning was set to the backdrop of vivid green jungle and rolling hills -- and set to the music of tropical birds. It was simple, stretching yoga... so if you're not used to doing it, you'll still enjoy this experience. The wellness spa was really good. As a New Yorker I've had many a good -- and bad massage. I was not disappointed by the services. Jill is a true healer. Bob is an absolute sweetheart. I went in the end of July, which is the "rainy" season. But it was wonderful!! It rained maybe once a day for an hour or two and the rest of the time it was sunny, beautiful, and not too hot. I highly recommend AmaTierra and will certainly be back.

      As a seasoned retreater, Costa Rica was further afield than usual for a detox. But so, so worth it. The owners Jill and Bob cannot do enough to support you in every way through the detox process. The retreat is heaven – hidden away from the masses, high up in the jungle, surrounded by the mind-blowing scenery and nature. The yoga studio is the highlight with breathtaking views. Jill’s knowledge and experience is second to none. The staff could not be friendlier. The organic food was nourishing and nurturing and the treatments outstanding. With time to do excursions to waterfalls, a rainforest trek and a zip-lining adventure through the canopy of the rainforest all organised by Bob, I didn’t want to leave but came back feeling transformed with a new lease of life. Can’t wait to return!

      I had an amazing week at AmaTierra. I arrived frazzled and overwhelmed, and left a week later feeling healthier, stronger mentally and physically, and rested. The setting is undoubtedly beautiful; but the hidden beauty is in the spiritual growth experienced within. Daily yoga, meditations, massage, delicious and nutrient-rich foods, light hiking and swimming are all part of the daily experiences. The warmth of the staff and ease of their routine is comforting, Bob is a warm and humerus host, Jill is an exceptionally gifted herbalist and a lovely host; they combine their efforts to provide an inviting wellness center in a soothing environment. Thank you Ama Tierra!

      We have stayed at Amatierra on past years and have even welcomed in the new year of 2011 with other guest and staff. We couldn't wait to take friends for a short stay. Amatierra has a wonderful energy. It is a positive and refreshing energy that helps clear away all the other little things that clutter our brain. Bob and Jill are the best hosts in Costa Rica. They are like family. This warm hospitality carries over to the staff. We had lunch when we first arrived and we all had massages in the afternoon. Dinner was served at 7 and it can only be described as wonderful, flavorful and "clean". We all very much enjoyed the meal and Bob had an excellent Malbec that we enjoyed with the meal. Before breakfast the next morning our wives attended the morning yoga session and meditation. If you are looking for a great place to chill out then Amatierra is the place for you.
