Our group will lodge at the most magical place: Las Flores Resort.

Here will be our home base for colourful meals,  adventure’s beachside, splashing in the pool, and private excursions. This experience is welcoming a variety of guests- families, singles, couples.


When looking for flights the airport is San Salvador, El Salvador.


A TYPICAL DAY:

Each morning, you can get up for dawn surf patrol or sleep in and meet up for a delicious breakfast. Optional mid-morning meditation and yoga ensues.


After morning mindful movement you have the choice for beach/pool time or more surf! Lunch is served in open air in the restaurant overlooking the beach break.


If you are up to it, painting sessions are mid afternoon where Estelle takes you on mindful art journeys and invites you to create meditative watercolour art inspired by wild El Salvador wild coast. We will be using our tropical vistas as inspiration, and work our way to a final memorable piece.


Dinner is at 3-courses of goodness in local El Salvador taste and delectable options for kids too. Upon coming home you will feel energized, rested and inspired.


All surf + art + yoga activities are optional and geared to adults. 

ALL PRICES ARE USD.


*Children are 2-12 years. 13 years or older are considered adults. Babies are free, but please make a note if they are coming in your booking. 



NOTE FROM ESTELLE:

I am just so excited that you are thinking of joining my family and I for El Salvador Experience 2023! This will be my fourth International Retreat. As a family, we have visited Las Flores Resort four times -each time more memorable and magical than the last!  


When our boys were little, Scott would surf before breakfast. We would have breakfast as a family, do beach/pool and then I would go up on the cliff for yoga before noon. Lunch is served, then siesta and art (or surf with kids!) is often before dinner. Scott often goes back surfing randomly throughout the day (because it’s right out front!), and we take turns caring for our children and congregate at meal times. I see community time being around meals, and art+yoga time being steeped in mindfulness. Your family can design the vacation you want around this but I also leave it open for singles and couples to join us as well!! :) Spa and other activities such as fishing are also available. 


This experience is not training, it’s a vacation. All activities are optional. It’s the first time I open it to a family-friendly experience. I am a little nervous but also excited at the prospect of being together with like-minded families as a community. More friends, more fun! 


The Art & Yoga activity package is geared toward adults and included everyday (except on your free day: Wednesday).

http://www.estellethomson.com/ Mom, Painter and Yoga Teacher. I have combined 20 + years of painting and yoga experience to infuse my teaching with profound and unique integration of body, mind and breath. My teaching is infused with the sacred, beautiful and wild. I have made it my mission for you to experience yoga and art as a way to unleash the freedom and joy within. I believes that through art and yoga you can tap into your own MAGIC.

Reviews

I had a wonderful time on the France Retreat with Estelle. It surpassed my wildest dreams of what a Yoga and Creativity Retreat could be. Beautiful atmosphere, amazing food, and an incredible teacher in Estelle. The days were a magical balance of activity and creativity and of course relaxation. A beautiful group of women gathered together and were held and supported in their journey by Estelle, who is a skilled facilitator and phenomenal guide.
By Lisa G for Yoga & Creativity Retreat on 20 Jun, 2019
Under the mindful and soulful direction and teachings of Estelle and along with 12 other beautiful soulful women I was able to: BE present - “FEEL” every part of the week- “THINK” about my intentions and actions in order to go forward to “DO” small daily acts of bravery in my life” - .... This was not a week-long journey to be “fixed” or “mended” but instead to be mindful through art- yoga -journaling -and music to search within for the tools we use and require in our own life toolbox per se. This was an amazing week.
