“OFF THE BEATEN PATH” YOGA RETREAT IN NICARAGUA
Yoga, Surf, and SUP Retreat in San Juan del Sur
I am thrilled to be sharing this long- awaited offering, which will most likely become an annual retreat. Join me for 8 days and 7 nights of Yoga, Surf, and SUP in the idyllic and relatively still undiscovered paradise that is southern Nicaragua. Often referred to as the next Costa Rica, yoga, surfing, and stand up paddleboarding will all be a part of the week’s activities, with plenty of time for strolling the private, secluded beach, relaxing by the pool, or checking out the shopping scene in nearby San Juan del Sur.

OUR VENUE FOR THIS RETREAT
Our venue for this retreat is Verdad Costa Dulce, a brand new resort nestled into a tropical dry forest, with breathtaking ocean views of Playa Escameca down below. Five freestanding cabins with decks overlooking the ocean and two pool rooms linked by beautifully landscaped paths are comfortable, beautifully designed, and will provide you with an amazing night’s sleep after a full day of activity. All rooms have private ensuite bathrooms, and WIFI.
