These last few years have left many of us with a difficult feeling of "stuckness", noticing our energies and inspirations muted, deflated, and stagnant. Even as certain things return to function, our inner worlds haven't yet had the chance to truly recalibrate to a level that fosters authentic forward movement.
This retreat is specifically designed to redefine our lives, find our creative potential, and rediscover the inner vitality that propels us forward both within our thoughts + within our lives. Through adventure, movement, intention setting, and reconnection to the magic of nature, this retreat will redefine everything and recalibrate you back to your highest vibration.

A colorful fishing village off the beaten path, El Gigante is located just over an hour north of San Juan Del Sur on Nicaragua's beautiful Pacific Coast.
The town is aptly named “big foot” when translated from Spanish to describe the gentle green foothills that meet the ocean with such ease. A town filled with untouched beaches, roaming farm animals, and dirt pathways; you’ll quickly remember the importance of slowing down and to embrace living simply.
The lifestyle and culture here very much embodies the phrase “Take it Easy”. Arriving here feels like taking one long exhale and a chance to just be.
Loretta is a Certified Pilates + Yoga instructor with over 10 years of professional training.
I was introduced to yoga 20+ years ago and knew from the start that it was going to be a part of my life. It touched my heart and soul, taught me how to breathe through the difficult times that life can throw. I knew that I had to share my love of yoga with the community and world.
I completed my 200 hour training in 2012. I have furthered my training in Restorative, Yin, Meditation, Pranayama, and Kundalini.
In 2019, my father was diagnosed with kidney cancer. During this time, I realized that moving and breathing were essential to staying grounded and present. This is when I completed my Reformer Pilates training and Cancer Exercise certification. My goal has always been to make the practice of movement (physical, spiritual and mental) accessible to every BODY and everybody.
Working full time as an independent Aesthetician. For fun you will find me in the hills hiking with the love of my life, Lasai (my man dog)
Cat Stahl is a certified Pilates + fitness instructor who teaches at Infinity Fitness Studios, a premier fitness + Pilates studio in Reno, NV.
I am a fun-loving, high energy, and free-spirited person. Being in nature and of nature (hiking, biking, camping, walking, paddling, etc), fitness training, and Pilates are my saving grace.
I am a journalist by education ( for years I made my living writing on fashion, beauty, shopping, and lifestyle for both newspapers and magazines.)
I am an artist and paint large scale florals, hearts, and feminine buddhas with golden halo’s.
Exercise, and self-care right my mind and my body. To me, they are as essential as breathing air.
I am blessed, privileged, and honored to make a living teaching pilates, and fitness.
Pilates challenges me to bring my best, and be my best. It reminds me to slow down, center, focus, be attentive, of intention, and breathe.
My classes go with the flow but we work hard. Nothing is cast in stone, I read my audience and navigate accordingly. I am very adaptable.
I love exercise that makes us think, reach, stretch, and strive. I love the transformation (mentally and physical) that comes with the advent of a dedicated, consistent practice.
I love when someone thinks they can’t, and then realizes they can.
With me you can expect a lot of leg, arm, balance, and core work. I believe in moving slowly and purposefully. I incorporate yoga, weights, strength training, and breathing into my classes and feel strongly about devoting the last few moments of class to unstructured quiet time. It is important to relax, un-wind, and reflect.
Lastly, I love possibility, and potential. I see it in every
thing, and in every body.
