About this trip

This heart-filled yoga retreat set amidst nature's sanctuary, will offer you the space to dive deep into your wondrous soul. Experience ocean-front living and be inspired by the dynamic movement of the rolling waves. Recharge and reconnect to source through this immersive yoga journey. 


Anchored by nature's five elements, we will flow through an experiential and intentional yogic progression. From arrival and grounding into the layers of earth, we will set roots as a community to form the foundation for our experience. Earth connection paves the way to surrender to the flow of the water element, the infinite ocean that is within all of us. From there we transform into the fire, the burning discipline of desire that opens our eyes to the infinite possibilities. We tend the heart fire through honoring the sacred winds and fanning the internal flames through the recognition of prana, the eternal life force that connects us back to source. From the earth to the ethereal realm, we see and understand how our unique experience of the microcosm is an individual reflection of our connection to the greater macrocosmic universe. Our voyage culminates in the realization of the five elements within us and all around us. All is one.


Our retreat size is intentionally kept small to allow for individual support. With the two of us, you will be receiving undivided attention, catered to your specific needs.

Accommodations

Rancho Majagual is an enchanting private property perched perfectly on one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in Nicaragua. Nestled amongst over 120 acres of lush tropical gardens, capture a sense of seclusion alongside a breath-giving view of the waves rolling in to Playa Majagual. Catch some rays while lounging poolside, or opt for a dip in the ocean and lose your gaze to the skyline. Relax and make yourself at home. Savor free time in the open air rancho, where we'll dine together and discover who believes what happens in Nicaragua stays in Nicaragua. 


The main house, El Rancho is set amongst the property's lush tropical gardens. In keeping with Latin American design, the bedrooms are located on the perimeter of a central great room, offering maximum privacy and quiet when resting. Each of the home’s five bedrooms have their own A/C unit and private ensuite bathroom with hot water. The vibrantly colored, hand-painted floor and bath tiles were handmade by local artisans.


Featured on the property are three beach front villas, or Ranchitos. Located just steps away from the ocean, walk out your door directly onto the the soft white sand. The two room Ranchitos offer a comfortable king-sized bedroom, private ensuite bathroom and an adjacent living room with a queen-sized futon couch. Lounge on your private front porch and drink in the abundant fresh air.

Your retreat leaders

A typical yoga class with Marjaneh will not be a typical yoga class. Be ready to get deep into your breath and body and move into a space that is uniquely and playfully you. The carefully choreographed rhythm of music and flow will allow you to dance into the realm of your breath, your movement, your unknown. Prepare to explore your body and its unique capabilities, to open up and challenge your mind … and, on some days, perhaps even to defy gravity, becoming the super human being that you were truly born to be. However, the most important aspect of my class is not what you do on your mat, it’s what you do off it. Marjaneh's greatest hope is that you let go of outside thoughts during our precious time together, then take what you learn with you as you step out into this gorgeous world.


Tiffany lives in constant awe of the beauty of nature that surrounds and resides inside each of us, which is reflected within her teachings. Her organic, creative classes celebrate the harmony of breath and movement and feature an intelligent evolution of yoga asana, turning the complex into easy to grasp. Her fresh, innovative sequencing will holistically empower your body, mind and soul. Tiffany's love for living, breathing and being yoga is simply infectious.
