About this trip

Retreat to this culture-filled tropical beachy village on the Pacific Coast of Southern Nicaragua for Find Your Flowstate 2.0. Enjoy an amazing getaway exploring beautiful Nicaragua and find your flow state with Laura Monk, Founder of Soulfish Experiential Yoga + Events in San Diego, CA.

This epic retreat is designed to eliminate the distraction we experience in our everyday lives, and fully immerse and connect your mind, body, and soul.  A week filled with movement, adventure, surf, relaxation, music, and community outreach will elevate your state of being into one of pure enjoyment and grounded consciousness.   The first retreat was so good we couldn't wait to get 2.0 on the calendar!

To be a Soulfish is to recognize that we strive to be neither selfish nor selfless-and instead SOULfish: surrounding ourselves with people, places, thoughts, energies, and activities that allow us to show up as our true selves.

Vibrationally based via movement, meditation, and music, the goal of attending a Soulfish experience is to leave feeling empowered to ride the waves of life with radical responsibility and empowerment.  Why not do just that while visiting beautiful Nicaragua?

The Space/Hotel

Equipped with a sparkling pool, WiFi, and A/C, you’ll be able to enjoy comfortable accommodations without losing the rustic touch that makes Gigante unique. Yoga will be held between a tropical open space underneath our newly built grand palapa and a cliffside ocean view shala.

Breaks in the day are encouraged, so feel free to take a moment to relax in one of our day beds or hammock, and appreciate the cloudy blue skies, palm trees, and gift yourself the feeling of serenity. 

The Food

 We have a full-service restaurant + bar to prepare meals and beverages during this retreat. Enjoy fresh, locally-sourced ingredients with delicious options for all dietary needs and preferences.  Experience delicious tropical fruits, fresh caught fish, local produce, and a thoughtfully crafted menu to keep you satisfied. 

The Community of El Gigante


 A colorful fishing village off the beaten path, El Gigante is located just over an hour north of San Juan Del Sur on Nicaragua's beautiful Pacific Coast. The town is aptly named “big foot” when translated from Spanish to describe the gentle green foothills that meet the ocean with such ease. A town filled with untouched beaches, roaming farm animals, and dirt pathways; you’ll quickly remember the importance of slowing down and to embrace living simply.  

The lifestyle and culture here very much embodies the phrase “Take it Easy”. Arriving here feels like taking one long exhale and a chance to just be. 

About Laura Monk

 Laura Monk

Soulfish Experiential Yoga

200 hr E-RYT

Having practiced yoga since she was 16, yoga has been a constant in Laura’s life in a variety of ways.  What started as something that could alleviate physical pain from athletic injuries, turned into a mission to find acceptance and acknowledge our responsibility to lean into the ebbs and flows of our path.  Soulfish was founded on the idea that in order to truly show up for ourselves, we should not be either selfish or selfless, but SOULfish- putting energy towards the things and people that light us up, and allow us to be authentically ourselves, mind, body and spirit.  This includes the highs and the lows of life, and most especially, all the moments in between.  Laura’s workshops, events and classes, focus on moving meditation in conjunction with music-driven sequences, which are all designed to get you to your flowstate- focused and fully immersed in creating your life by design.

Laura is a certified 200 hr E-RYT that resides in San Diego, CA.  Originally from Michigan and Chicago, Laura was drawn to the west coast for the energizing atmosphere, ability to camp, backpack, surf and ski, not to mention, the close proximity of many of her favorite music and experiential festivals.  Laura knew that there was much opportunity and growth to be had both in her personal life and career.  She has a background in commercial interiors, graphic design and event production, proving even more that life is not linear, and we all have many chapters.

Had a magical experience in Joshua tree! Loved the people food conversation and atmosphere ⚛️
By Kelsey B for Yoga Escape to Joshua Tree on Oct 03, 2023
This was the literal most amazing week of my entire life. Sam put together a perfectly balanced itinerary of movement and rest, group time and solo time, structured activities and free time. Everything was so thoughtfully designed and organized, from the food to the photography to the yoga to the surfing and beyond. I will go on any retreat Sam ever organizes because of how wonderful this one was.
By Casey G for Tropical Yoga + Surf Retreat (all levels welcome) on May 09, 2023
This trip was AMAZING! The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The grounds and pool were maintained daily. The staff was so accommodating. All of our needs were met. We forgot our snorkel masks at another beach bar/restaurant, and the staff insisted that they retrieve it for us. Literally everything was planned out for us: excursions, meals, hikes, horseback riding, fishing, etc. The travel was made simple. We were shepherded across the border of Costa Rica and Nicaragua upon both arriving and departing. Shuttle drivers had coolers available for us filled with cold drinks. We traveled for a yoga retreat, and the yoga classes were so good for our bodies and souls. We love Room to Roam and we will definitely be booking anther trip either to Nicaragua or to one of the other locations!

This was an amazing trip! The food was fantastic and abundant, and all of the people were genuinely wonderful. I really enjoyed this opportunity to grow in self love, reflection, expansion, and awakening with beautiful likeminded souls in the magic of Lake Tahoe. Thank you to everyone!

I can’t say enough about my wonderful experience with Kate, Ashley, Lorenzo and the whole staff at Room to Roam! This trip was truly magical. I was a little nervous to travel for the first time since COVID. Kate took such great care ushering me in to Nicaragua. I was very stressed at home prior to leaving and Kate kept taking things off my plate as I prepared to leave. Upon arrival we were greeted so warmly by the staff. I was instantly relaxed. Marco’s truly does make the BEST passion fruit margarita on the planet! My intention was surf and boy did I fall back in love with surfing, but I am really walking away with so much more- a complete reboot for my body, mind and soul! I’ll be back again soon! PS the food is out of the this world! Every single meal…. Mouth watering!
