Spend a week in paradise with amazing yoga, surf and epic company for a one of a kind experience in the beautiful beach town of Playa Gigante in Nicaragua! This retreat will not be your standard yoga + surf retreat. Because while that does sound great, most retreats are so planned out to the T that there’s little room for what’s really needed when you’re on a relaxing getaway: the relaxation.
The YESHH Retreat was designed with the idea that everything on the calendar is optional for you to join, leaving you room to breathe, enjoy the gorgeous scenery that mother nature has to offer, and move at whatever pace you’d like.
With 6 nights in a refreshing boutique hotel, you’ll be able to hang poolside or in a hammock with a book of your choosing, enjoy a delightful passion fruit marg over a game of cards, or practice that rusty Spanish of yours with the friendliest of staff.
In between those moments of downtime are options for morning and evening yoga with daily themes, walkable surf for beginners and the more experienced, peaceful beach walks, guided jungle hikes, and 4 phenomenal meals and beverages provided each day.
Included in the retreat are one in-house 60 minute massage and an incredible day trip where we’ll zipline over the canopies of San Juan Del Sur and explore the local beach town for lunch!
The YESHH Retreat has its own intention of embodying the flow of nature, resetting and renewing as we all need to do as humans, letting go of what doesn’t serve us and drawing in more of what does. Through all the available practices and activities, you’ll find the right medicine for you in the moment with an amazing crew of people right alongside you on this trip of a lifetime.

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.
This couple craves adventure as much as they value relaxation and downtime. James and Brittney wanted to host this retreat for dear friends and new ones who want to immerse themselves in the beauty of Playa Gigante, Nicaragua, in a way that feels rejuvenating to your body, mind, and soul - a must for anyone that works hard and plays harder.

Depending on arrival times, the first day is where everyone can settle in however they like...whether that is immediately hitting the waves, taking a nap, or just connecting with the crew. We will review details and the tentative plan for the week and kick off the good times right off the bat!
