About this trip

This is the kind of week that changes you forever. Deep in the jungles of Panama at the end of the road, you find yourself. You find the one you have been looking for, the one you've been running from. You recover compassion for yourself, you regain your playful spirit, you laugh, you cry, you dance, you release. Finally. A deep sigh. You make new friends, you try new food, you get on that surfboard, you swim under the stars. The sisterhood awaits. This is THE women's retreat. Come see for yourself.

Ladyvana is hands down the absolute best thing I have done for myself ever! Words cannot describe how immensely special this experience was alongside 23 remarkable women. I entered the retreat with high expectations, given what I had heard about these retreats in the past, and the experience exceeded anything I could have ever expected! Ally does an incredible job of knowing what the group needs each day and curates the retreat to the groups needs. With the perfect balance of relaxation, self reflective work and time to bond with others, I came to the retreat feeling depleted and like a shell of myself and left the retreat feeling full, feeling joy and well equipped with the tools needed to maintain the growth made during the retreat. I am honestly shocked at how far we all came in just 5 days, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything and look forward to joining another one in the future! I highly recommend this retreat to any woman - you deserve it!

One of the most impactful weeks of my entire life. Ally Maz is an immensely unique soul. She has an incredible gift of bringing women from all walks of life together to bond, heal, and transform. Every single aspect of this experience was impeccably planned and executed. Sansara Resort was beautiful and every detail was crafted perfectly. I most appreciate Ally's ability to make each attendee feel seen, heard, and special. I cannot recommend Ladyvana and Ally Maz enough. This is the best money you'll ever spend on your personal improvement and growth.

This was my first time attending a 6 day retreat. I attended solo not knowing anyone. Ally has curated her retreats flawlessly! From start to finish. She is so thoughtful and puts her heart and soul into the experience. I went into the retreat feeling a bit lost. As many mothers do, we can throw ourselves into our families and forget to give ourselves the same care. I came away with so much clarity and feeling empowered with the tools and teachings from Ally. Not to mention all the amazing women I met. Many new friends AKA soul sisters! If you’ve always wanted to take time away to reconnect to yourself but felt too guilty to do so…(mom guilt is real.)Do it! BOOK it! Life is NOW! Thank you, Ally and Lady Vana Retreats for this unforgettable experience. I will forever hold these memories of this week in my heart. I’ve never laughed so hard and cried so much all in the same week. Looking forward to attending another Lady Vana Retreat in the future. 💫

Incredible is an understatement. I’m not quite sure there are words to describe all of the feelings that this trip brought me. Spending a week with Ally, a group of strong women, and in an astoundingly beautiful environment was everything I needed and more. The flows were balanced and well thought out, taking into consideration the activities of the day or previous days. The meditation and journal prompts were insightful, thought provoking and engaging. The breath work was otherworldly - this was a new experience for me and Ally so gently and carefully took us through such an awe-inspiring breath work practice, giving assistance or comfort when needed. I would like to say that this trip changed the trajectory of my life, providing me with tools to tackle day to day challenges or ghosts from my past. It also brought me close to an incredible group of women from all over, who now support, love and care for me. These women represent the type of people that Ally attracts - kind, generous, passionate. I am beyond grateful for this experience and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing one of her retreats. Ally is so wonderful to be around. Her spirit and vibes are contagious. Her energy is everything. Highly highly recommend Ally!

I'm still basking (3 months later) in the expansion of the week in Cambutal Panama at the incredible Sansara Resort, with the most amazing teacher and mentor, Ally Maz. To sum up my experience into words seems unattainable, but the word that has stuck with me since is 'magic'. Ally has created such an incredible platform that is, ladyvana, a place for all types of women to come together, with themselves and with others, to learn, to create and to expand. I think every women whatever age should have this experience. I went in not knowing what to expect and I came out with a full heart, laughter, lightness, energy, abundance... the list goes on. More women need to come together, because when this happens, magic happens and the world becomes a better place. If you are unsure if you should go and are reading these reviews to get a better understanding, take this as your golden ticket of knowing that the time is now and to just do it. I hold this experience in a safe place in my heart, forever and always. It's exactly what I needed, when I needed it.

If you believe in the definition of a miracle is as a shift in perspective, Ladyvana isn't really a yoga retreat, it is a journey of creating miracles. Panama 2023 was my 2nd Ladyvana trip, and I can say with certainty now that the magic I felt the first time in Mexico was not a fluke or a one-off experience. Ally is such an incredible conduit for deep work and connection, and brings a beautiful balance of joy, humor and power to her retreats that makes the impossible feel easily accessible. Both retreats I've gone on have been truly life-changing experiences, and each one has helped me find exactly what I needed at that moment in my life, even when I had no idea what I was looking for. The women I have connected with on these trips have become friends for life, and I am so grateful to be part of this sisterhood of amazing, supportive, vulnerable and authentic women across the world. From helping plan before the trip with hotel recommendations for Panama City and packing lists, to navigating challenging logistics to get us all to Sansara quickly and safely, Ally truly went above and beyond to make sure everyone was supported throughout the entire journey. If you have been thinking about joining a Ladyvana retreat, consider this your sign to do it!
