About this trip

Join the Founders of Alma Retreats, Stacey Clark and Souljourn Yoga, Jordan Ashley for a very special and unique retreat: a week of yin and yang, movement and meditation, social change, and life altering adventure in some of the most incredible places in Nicaragua. 

Starting at the ocean and immersed in nature,  we will spend time on our mats experiencing coastal life and magical Nica sunsets. Our home base will be Verdad Nicaragua, steps away from the beach. 

From there, we will head to the colorful artisanal town of Granada where we will spend time at The Girls Home - a non-profit that provides a safe and caring environment for vulnerable girls who are unable to stay with their families due to distinctive circumstances. While in Granada, we will stay at Hotel Plaza Colon  - a former  colonial house from the 1900's that has now been transformed into a serene and sustainable boutique hotel in the heart of town.

The last stop of our adventure will be coffee country, where we will hop into a pick-up truck, journey through a tobacco plantation, and arrive at a local family’s home for a tortilla making lesson, taste a cup of coffee straight from the source, and an experience that many people who travel to Nicaragua never get. After a full day of adventure, we will return to Granada for a final night’s sleep. 

Our week together will not only be relaxing and nourishing, but transforming  - a trip you will never forget.

The retreat surpassed any expectations I had! The hosts were so thoughtful, knowledgeable, fun and kind! Every venue was beautiful. The trip was packed with wonderful programming that allowed us to experience Morocco and bond as a group. I loved every minute of the trip!! I can't wait to do another and can't wait to visit Morocco again!!

From the moment I arrived in Nicaragua I felt a sense of comfort and calm for the retreat that was before me. Stacey from My Alma Retreats coordinates a flawless series of logistics; myself and a handful of other retreat goers were pleasantly escorted to an incredibly villa on the pacific coast of Nicaragua for our first few days of retreat and recharge. Jordan and Allison led our group into several morning and evening yoga sessions that were mindfully choreographed and guided our group through the chakra system, element by element. Our days were blissful and entirely up to us how we wanted to spend them. We were spoiled by our fabulous personal chef who cooked amazing, colorful, nutrient and flavor rich meals three times a day. We headed into Granada midweek to give back to the local community through a heartfelt and fulfilling engagement with the young girls of UP Nicaragua; a philanthropic initiative to education the girls of inner city Granada on healthy and sustainable vocational options for their future. To say it was moving is an understatement; we hugged, conversed, practiced yoga, and shared empowering motivation to encourage them to continue striving for their dreams. We finished the week in the absolutely breathtaking countryside on a mineral rich, warm, inverted volcano lake, at Laguna Apoyo. Yoga sessions took place on a platform perched just above the lake, at sunrise and sunset, with the sounds of nature offering support and serenity; a truly majestic experience. Our final adventure took us into the city of Esteli, where we learned about the rich culture of farming; tobacco, Coffee and coco, that sustains the rural communities of Nicaragua. We donated books to the library bus initiative, offering mobile literacy for the rural communities of northern Nica. The experience was transformative, energizing, relaxing and majestic. I highly recommend for any adventurous spirit seeking a way to connect to culture, connect to your higher self, and give back in ways that are deeply moving. Flawlessly planned and executed by Stacy of My Alma Retreats. Flawlessly energized by Allison and Jordan.

I cannot speak highly enough about this transformative experience to Nicaragua. Jordan plans the most unique trip fusing together relaxation for the mind and body with an immersive cultural experience giving back to the local communities. I feel refreshed and inspired and cannot wait to sign up for my next retreat!

Dear Jordan and SoulJourn Yoga team, What an adventure. Prema Peru was an action packed and exciting journey. Most of all spending time with the girls of Sacred Valley Project was the most memorable especially shopping in the markets, learning their culture and making them smile! I wish we could have spent more time with the high school girls however because this visit was planned during the weekday they were doing their studies. I also think the flow of events would be smoother if we did not do sit downs for lunch. This took a lot of time out of the days where there were activities planned. A solution could be to grab food quickly somewhere or bag lunches. My most favorite meals were at Sacha Munay, Cola de Mono & Sunday we are at an incredible local spot in Cusco that was delicious! The activities were wonderful from ziplining to hot baths to Machu Picchu! The beginning of the trip was good paced and relaxing with plenty of time to enjoy yoga classes and gong bathes. This helped to acclimate to the elevation as well. I found that there were too many activities which made it confusing to know what was going on or what to pack in the middle of the week. Highly recommend to stress lots and lots of bug spray when in the jungle. Many people were eaten alive! We also had one man down during the mountain biking which was scary and thankful he is OK. However would be best to include travel insurance into the price based off the activity levels instead of making it an option. Overall I rate 10 out of 10! Incredible experience to give back to the girls and to experience Peru. Loved Sergio our guide, Che Che our driver, and Raoul ! They were wonderful. Maybe good idea to recommend to bring money for tipping them as well. Thank you again! Wonderful time!
