About this trip

MANY PEOPLE LIVE THEIR LIVES
STRUGGLING AGAINST THE CURRENT
WHILE OTHERS USE THE FLOW LIKE A MIGHTY WIND.


If you have never been to Venao, Panamá, you are in for a treat. If you are returning for your second time, or your 20th time, you will understand the call of this magical place. The Boutique Resort Eco Venao will be our home for a week of yoga (Kundalini, Bhakti Vinyasa & Acro Yoga) plus surf, meditation, relaxation, and top line FUN!


YOGA TEACHERS


Katherine Croston is a trained Vinyasa and Kundalini teacher as well a certified Health Coach and chef. Kathy’s focus is simple; to show people that their true nature is love and happiness. She understands that in order to be happy and free that human beings need commitment. A commitment to ourselves to be real, to be true, and to know when to let go of whatever is holding us back from becoming love. She believes in the power of the universe and that it is constantly working in our favor, we just need to align ourselves with it. She describes it as a telephone call, we need to dial the right numbers to get a hold of the right energy, and everything else starts unfolding. Her techniques address Vinyasa style alignment, Bhakti Yoga in its devotion and lessons in love as well as Kundalini yoga for its power for deep transformation and manifesting our highest self. Classes include Asanas (Postures), Mudras (Hand Energetics), Pranayama (Breathing Exercises), and Mantras (Sanskrit Repetition for Transformation).


Leonela Leal has dedicated her life to work on the dynamics of movement. Her parents encouraged her passion for gymnastics, whose art she rediscovered with the introduction of Yoga. Inspired by Love and energetic work, this connection resulted in a multidimensional therapeutic path. She became one of AcroYoga’s youngest certified teachers. Curious to expand in her practice, she also dedicated to the various meditation approaches and Thai Massage therapies. Exploring various styles of these wonderful practices, she feels that expression through movement is liberating and healing. She faithfully believes that each day is a gift and your vocation is to share this feeling.
