About this trip

The Yoga Paddling Adventure offers 8 days and 7 nights of activities with daily yoga sessions paddling opportunities and several excursions exploring the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.
 


About the Lodging: Villa Del Mar

The property is located on the ocean in the center of the Gastronimica Routa, a restaurant rich area along Playa Salinas. There are two houses on the property, the smaller one houses your hosts Shanna and Lynn and the larger house with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths is for the participants.  The larger house was nearly destroyed in Hurricane Maria and will be back online for guests in November. I can add additional house photos at that time. 


There is direct access to the ocean from the house, a laundry house and a big courtyard for Yoga sessions. The large house has a marvelous porch with good cross breezes from the ocean. Meals will be held here. 


With this program most of our meals are included, anyone with an inkling and a good recipe is welcome to take on a lunch or a dinner for the group. The kitchen is comfortable with all the standard amenities.  We will always have coffee and tea available, you are on your own for any specialty beverages. 


The three bedrooms are set up in a traditional island layout, two with separate doors to the porch. The third is reached through one of the other bedrooms and has it's own bath. There are 3x double beds and a set of bunks. Our program is intimate in size with 5 to 8 people maximum and two hosts. There is a cozy living room, a good sized kitchen and a protected oceanside dining room. 


When we are in Puerto Rico this fall, we will take some videos.

I have been an innkeeper for the last 17 years, first in California just outside Yosemite National Park and now in the Northwoods of Wisconsin where I started practicing Yoga. Four years ago I started a successful Beach Yoga and Stand Up Paddle program at our Wisconsin resort, Cedaroma Lodge, with my yoga instructor. We are delighted to bring our successful formula for yoga, paddling and adventure south to Puerto Rico where we can enjoy our favorite outdoor activities year round! I will am scheduled to earn my RYT200 certificate this fall and our co-host instructor Shanna Steiin earns here RYT500 in November.
