About this trip

Join us on the Pacific beaches of Nicaragua for a week-long immersive retreat of yoga, meditation, adventure, and the best surf in the world!

Popoyo, Nicaragua is known as one of the most tranquil beaches on earth, with the a miracle of points, beach and reef breaks that capture the power of the frequent south swells and adds an all day dose of offshore winds funneling in from Lake Nicaragua to create great surf!


Don't know how to surf?? No worries! Our retreat includes surf lessons and time every day to practice. Also on the property is a yoga shala with 270 degree views of the ocean where we hold all our daily practice, meditations, and other retreat activities. 


Based on the shamanic medicine wheel and it's animal archetypes, each day focuses on a new level of empowerment, encouraging you to achieve and awaken your highest potential.
