About this trip

Join Alma Retreats, www.myalmaretreats.com, and Stacey Clark for our 4th year down in Nicaragua.  This time the magic will take place on Little Corn Island, a small island off the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua where time slows down and the beautiful turquoise sea and warm coconut bread nourish your mind, body and spirit. On the mat, you can expect some feel good flow, yummy yin, meditation, mindfulness practices, the chance to hear your own voice and the chance to put your 2017 intentions into action. After feeling relaxed and restored, we head back to the mainland for a taste of something magical off the mat....the "Alma" behind Alma Retreats. 

The retreat begins with your feet buried in the sand and ends on the back up of a pickup truck as we drive through coffee country, hike down to waterfalls, spend a day with local farmers, learn to make tortillas, and journey to the places in Nicaragua most people don't often to get experience, the places that transform you. 

This retreat provides everything and then some.

After a 5 year yoga practice in New York City I felt things begin to shift inside. with each shift, came the ability to hear my own voice, to what i wanted most, THE chance to be the person i felt like on my mat and the person i felt like when i traveled: alive, free, inspired, relaxed and at peace. Prior to an overworked life in NYC, i had traveled the world AND takEN roads less traveled. one such road led me to a homestay in the highlands of Nicaragua where a friend had an unexpected allergic reaction to a bug bite. With no buses for 2 days, the family made it their mission to locate a pick up truck, get us back to the city and care for my friend. Over that time, we shared coffee and tortillas and got a glimpse into another life. That trip became the first of many and the beginning of a relationship with Jane at Cafe Luz and the projects she supports, more specifically, EL LIBRO VOLADOR. EL LIBRO VOLADOR brings books and materials to remote communities in the highlands of Nicaragua. Fast Forward 4 years, over 12 retreats down in Nicaragua, thousands of dollars raised for El Libro Volador, hundreds of hours on the mat in some of the most breathtaking places in the world, Alma Retreats came to be more than it sought out to be. Alma Retreats is a collaboration of teachers, healers, nurterers, and creators committed to a practice of open heartedness, gratitude, and self discovery. ​ Alma retreats offers retreats and something more. we are about local relationships and ethical travel. we provide week long opportunities to unplug, to be that person you are on your mat, the person you are when you travel: free, alive, relaxed, at peace...at home. Join us and see for yourself! ​ ABRAZOS, STACEY CLARK FOUNDER/ OWNER OF ALMA RETREATS Yoga Teacher, writer, founder and owner of Alma Retreats, Stacey has spent the last decade practicing and learning yoga.
