Wow! I can't believe it happened... my dream of putting two of my deepest passions together and having an international yoga retreat came true, and it could not have been any better. The amount of gratitude in my heart is over-flowing and it was an experience I'll never forget.
From the moment we got to Nica, we were one. Everyone opened their hearts to the experience, as well as each other. I can't begin to explain the joy filled days we shared in detail, because I would go on and on. In brief, our days were filled with two daily yoga practices and meditation, relaxing on the beach, surfing, gorgeous sunsets, delicious foods, howler monkeys, beautiful magpies, sloths, a visit to the Masaya volcano, zip lining through the jungle, exploring Granada and San Juan del Sur, a hilarious night of dancing, and ended with an emotional yet empowering closing workshop among forever friends.
Living in the jungle above Playa Maderas was absolutely breathtaking! Located right outside of San Juan Del Sur, aways away from any hustle and bustle we found our slice of paradise. Together we took in all that this amazing experience had to offer. Allowing the salt air of the Pacific and the canopy of the jungle to become our home away from home. We created new intentions, new friendships, and new memories. With clear minds, open hearts, and inspiration from our lives- we all learned many lessons on this retreat. I am so proud of the growth I witnessed among all my students. April, Laura, Jen, Katelynn, Jenny, Sara, Brittany, Veronica, Hayley, Heather, Antonia, and Taylor- you are each beautiful inside and out, and strong as sh*t! The world is yours and I have no doubt in your ability to live true to yourself and be you! Thank you for the lessons each of you have taught me. I am forever grateful.
To all others reading, get ready! More retreats to come! Drop a comment with a place you may be interested in taking a yoga retreat to :)
