Nicaragua Surf & Soul
A yoga retreat at maderas beach
March 5-12, 2016
Join Gaby G and Brian Tobin on a week long yoga retreat designed to nourish the whole being. We will come in from the cold of winter, and literally warm ourselves to the bone in the powerful equatorial sun of Nicaragua! We will be hosted by the Buena Vista Surf Club, a secluded jungle eco-lodge overlooking the surf at Playa Maderas.
Each day we will awaken our spirit in the jungle treetops that surround the infinity yoga deck. Imagine practicing with views of flowing ocean water, blue skies, and tropical flora and fauna. The sounds of jungle and ocean will quiet and soothe your soul. We will shift our daily rhythms away from work and technology so we can move with the natural rhythms that surround us. Your relationship with yoga will deepen through two practices daily, including opportunities to experience pranayama, mantra, and meditation.
While surfing is included and accessible to retreat guests, you are free to enjoy your time in the jungle and on the playa any way you choose! Some guests choose the path of simple relaxation while others explore recreational activities like ATV tours, hourseback riding, zipline adventures, sailing, turtle watching, or a myriad of other trips and activities. We will share two family-style meals daily and most dietary restrictions can be honored. Accommodations are shared however each cabana offers guests privacy, including a private bathroom. Private rooms are available for a greater fee – Inquire directly with us.
Reset your energy and open to the potential of what life has to offer. We will practice yoga, relax, adventure, immerse ourselves in nature, and cultivate a strong sense of community. Enrich your yoga practice and allow yourself to surrender to the natural flow of your life.
