About this trip

The feminine spirit is as powerful as it is divine. As we move through life, we can become distanced from this source. Spend a week reconnecting in the hidden paradise of Laguna de Apoyo in beautiful Nicaragua. With the support of sisterhood and Mother nature, this weeklong ceremony includes daily yoga + meditation, fun and inspiring workshops, plenty of immersion with the natural elements, and sacred space to rediscover all that you are. Join Gaby and Sloane as we reclaim that which is healing, sacred, wildly abundant, and truly empowering - the love of the Woman.

Gaby Colletta
Whether on or off the mat, Gaby teaches yoga as the journey of rediscovering one’s true nature. By inviting subtle awareness and love-inspired intention into each movement, yoga becomes a cathartic and empowering practice. Her classes are rooted in strong Vinyasa, with an emphasis on self-exploration and soulful expression. Her sequences are dynamic, energetic and unexpected while using the power of the breath to move through each asana in one fluid dance. Centered on an intention, incorporating mindfulness and drawing inspiration from the natural world, philosophers, poets and thought leaders, Gaby’s style encourages creativity and positive transformation of the body, mind and spirit. Gaby is a 500-Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor. The foundation for her teachings has grown from a diversity of experiences. She graduated with a Bachelor’s in Media, Culture & Communications from New York University. With a curiosity for understanding the beautiful complexity of the mind, she found herself working in advertising. Witnessing the insatiable patterns of modern society, she was inspired to leave her corporate job in pursuit of finding ways to reveal the existing happiness that resides in humanity’s heart. Her greatest education is in the shared experiences of different cultures and people. She volunteered her way across Southeast Asia and Europe, drove her car into the heart of the Earth, learned from the land and the lessons nature has to offer. In 2014, she completed her Yoga Teacher Training rooted in Classical Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa. In 2016, she went on to study Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy through the California College of Ayurveda. Her advanced training took her into the depths of Tantric Philosophy. Gaby has been a practicing yogini for over nine years. When she is not leading yoga classes, she’s off hiking in the mountains, rock climbing, shooting photography or scribbling poems on napkins in a far corner of the world. Learn more at
