This amazing week in a boutique hotel provides the backdrop, space and time to focus on you. In addition to yoga and heart-felt community, you will have easy access to the breathtaking beauty of the Gulf of Chiriqui Marine National Park with its unspoiled islands of tropical jungle. The National Park covers 60 square miles of islands and ocean, and is known for its green iguana lizards, humpback whales, dolphins, many species of turtles, stingrays, monkeys, and hundreds of types of exotic birds and tropical fish. 

As Above So Below is a yoga retreat that offers two daily yoga classes with a focus of connecting to yourself in a whole and loving way. Morning classes will energize the body and awaken the mind and evening classes leave you feeling renewed and refreshed. This retreat is appropriate for all levels of yoga practitioner (even the beginner!) and is designed to invite a deeper understanding of self and a greater connection to one another.

In addition to the wonderful retreat package, participants have the opportunity to:

About Tra Kirkpatrick
Cat Clement
Yoga Ambassador

Cat Clement has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and started teaching yoga in 2012 after completing her Kunga Yoga 200hr teacher training at the Wilmington Yoga Center with Kristin Cooper-Gulak, Katie Serino and Noelle Cavenaugh in Wilmington NC. She was drawn to the Kunga Yoga model as it is a model of yoga geared towards service. Being an avid animal rescuer for many years it was kismet for her to find a style of yoga that was focused on giving back to the self so that you can be available to give and make space for others. Cat continued her studies in yoga while teaching and gained her 500hr teacher training from Wilmington Yoga Center in 2013 which focused studies of Thai Yoga, Ayurveda, Non Violent Communication, Anatomy & Physiology, Musculoskeletal Anatomy, and the 5Elements Flow. By studying many modalities of yoga and philosophy she brings a style of yoga that crosses boundaries and allows the student to begin to explore their own style and rhythm. Her classes are strong and powerful asana flows along with pranayama, mediation and yoga philosophy weaved throughout. Her passion lies within that of yoga as a way to renew the self so that you may be available to others and teaching that yoga can be practiced on and off the mat.

My yoga retreat, As Above, So Below, was fantastic. Our "tribe leaders" Tra and Cat were fantastic and worked very hard to make sure that everyone was enjoying themselves. They coordinated the yoga planning, accommodations, meals and activities for our group of 15. They left no stone unturned and I would not hesitate to join them again.
