The YOga


This retreat marks a pivot point.   A moment to stop, feel, integrate, and consciously propel in a new direction.  We will use the physical practice of hatha yoga as a catalyst to crack open the rough exterior of mind.  Our goal is to temporarily arrest the flux of emotion and feeling that keep us convinced of personality and habits, so that we may have a new experience!

This is available to all skill levels.  Whether you are new to yoga, or a seasoned practitioner, there will be an opportunity to grow.  To truly receive there is only one open mind and heart.

The vast Pacific Ocean forms her western border, the balmy Caribbean Sea the east. Is is a warm and friendly land of lakes and mountains; rivers and volcanoes, sea and sun. The country is divided into three geographic regions: the Pacific Lowlands on the west, the mountainous Central Region and the Atlantic Lowlands on the east.

Nicaragua has a predominantly tropical climate, alternating between two seasons: rainy and dry (winter and summer). This is the result of its geographic location between 11 and 15 degrees latitude north and the humidity from both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans which give it a fairly stable season.

In the Central Region the rainy season lasts from May to October. The dry season occurs from November through April. During December the weather is more temperate. The warmest months are March, April and May, Nicargua's "sea season".

The country is multi-ethnic with no official religion. Nicaragua's population is very young, 60 percent are under 17 years of age. Mestizos of mixed Indian and Spanish blood make up the majority of the population and they are the originators of Nicargua's colorful folklore, music and much of its religious tradition.
