For a week, we will find our home on a secluded beach in Panama with one of our favorite teachers in the world: Gillian St. Clair.This is the perfect place for yoga lovers, and the opportunity to be completely in harmony with nature.
Her creative classes mixed with tropical paradise and fresh gourmet meals make this week-long retreat an absolute dream. Our days will begin by waking up to the gentle sound of the ocean, followed by daily yoga classes (that will likely inspire your practice forever). After we move on the mat, we will enjoy a delicious breakfast array with fresh tropical fruits, coconut, healthy cereals, freshly squeezed o.j., eggs cooked to your liking, locally baked breads, marmalades, cheese, and of course, our great Panamean ground coffee. We will continue with either surfing, snorkeling, excursions through the jungle, time on the perfect white sand beaches or simply relaxing and taking in the sweet atmosphere of our surroundings.
After a morning of activity or just relaxing, guests will enjoy a wholesome lunch, with international flavors, which could consist of different salads, middle eastern falafel and tzataziki sauce, Mexican quesadillas with fresh guacamole and Spanish tortillas, just to name a few. All meals are served with our homemade bread freshly baked & natural fruit juices, such as maracuya (passion fruit) and lemonade. Umm… yes please!
After a relaxing and fun afternoon, we will return to our mats to soak up more yoga and acroyoga with Gillian. When we retreat with Gillian, we sink into more understanding, alignment, depth, and authenticity within ourselves and our practice.
Next, the 3-course dinner at Al Natural is a very unique and a special experience. As guests make their way over, they are amazed at the transformation the restaurant has taken with its many brightly lit candles and soft music playing in the background giving it a romantic and magical feeling. This is a great time to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail and catch up with the other guests. His European background combines Creole & Belgian flavors which come together on a symphony of colors and tastes that keep everyone enthralled. Of course, the meal will close with a dessert that will tantalize taste buds as he elegantly combines local fruits with, for instance, shredded coconut, organic cacao, and… local rum. Guests have always raved about the food and we look forward to sharing it with you. The kitchen is very accommodating to people with dietary restrictions.
