Morgan Malia, Functional Medicine Health Coach & E-RYT

Morgan is a certified Functional Medicine Health Coach and E-RYT Yoga instructor.  She’s also a travel-fiend and life-long student; constantly scouring the planet, seeking to further her education in the fields of Functional Medicine, modern yoga research and traditional Ayurvedic studies.  After several unsettling diagnoses, Morgan began a journey to health in her late teens with the adoption of a diligent yoga practice.  She credits the holistic lifestyle practices of Yoga with saving her life and believes wholeheartedly in its ability to heal and transform from the inside out.  Cleansing has always played a big role for her as well, and finding Hacienda del Sol in 2017 has proven to be one of the greatest gifts in her journey, both personally and professionally.  Teaching since 2011, Morgan aims to support her students and clients in sharpening their senses to cultivate more intimate awareness of the ways their bodies, minds, and environments interact. She draws from her training and experience across a wide range of techniques, offering experiences that are therapeutic yet challenging in nature. Her intuitive approach meets individuals wherever they are on the path, shedding light on unconsciously held patterns and beliefs, and encouraging a sense of ease, happiness, and wholeness.

Sharlynn Stewart, Registered Nurse and Yoga Therapist

Sharlynn (Shar) has been working in the healthcare field for over 20 years. She has been coming to Hacienda Del Sol since 2005 and has been facilitating retreats, and offering yoga and massage there since January, 2011. Thus, she knows from experience what a magical place it is and how it will have a profound transformative effect on your life!  Shar is a certified Yoga instructor with over a decade of experience teaching, and is also a Yoga Therapist, Thai masseuse (trained in Thailand), and a Registered Nurse. She draws on an insightful blend of Eastern & Western perspectives to compassionately encourage our guests to have an optimal experience.  Shar is passionate about living a present, balanced and authentic life, with a healthy dose of humor! She loves to travel the world, explore new places, people and food, but equally loves to retreat into silent solitude. She is a mixed breed of gypsy and home body, originally hailing from Canada but now calls Costa Rica her home.

Will I need travel insurance?

We recommend you acquire travel insurance for yourself in the event of illness or trip cancellation/interruption.

What are colemas and why are they part of the cleanse program?

Both FMY and HDS believe that colon hydrotherapy is an essential part of cleansing.  HDS uses UV filtered water in their medical grade colema stations and it is tested regularly.  You can learn more about colon hydrotherapy here: (
