Reset and Restore: A Balancing Beachside Yoga Retreat

with Jessica Sandhu in Playa Maderas , Nicaragua

From $1115 Per person

5 nights in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua
Sun Feb 07 - Fri Feb 12, 2016


Get balanced and connected on the beautiful beaches of Nicaragua’s Pacific coast this winter (February, 2016).

Enjoy six days of tranquility and wellbeing at an oceanside eco-lodge while practicing yoga twice daily, eating healthy and energizing foods, and recharging.

Each day, explore and reset the body, mind and spirit through yoga (includes gentler flows, movement-based flows, restorative and Chakra-based yoga—each session will vary), guided meditation, kirtan (call and response singing) and group discussion. There will be plenty of time to reflect in stillness and linger in the moment—and to experience the surrounding natural beauty, including Nicaragua’s best surfing spot.

The package includes an on-site massage and a zipline adventure in the lush Nicaraguan rainforest.

This retreat will leave you rejuvenated and inspired.

Can't say enough great things about this trip. The setting was beautiful, the people were wonderful and the experience exceeded my expectations by far. Be aware that this is an eco-lodge, not a 5 star resort, so expect insects and other creatures in your cabanas. I brought my own yoga mat and beach towel, but the resort provided both so that wasn't necessary - bringing soap and shampoo, however, is.
