If you are like us, you crave adventure, bliss, sweaty yoga sessions, deep meditation, healthy, fresh food, no bullshit conversations and joyful plunges in warm oceans waves with other like-spirited people who share your zest for life!!!  

We are so psyched to offer you 7 days + 6 nights nestled in beautiful Sansara, a boutique beachfront oasis, nestled on the coast of Panama, dedicated to a soulful fusion of yoga and surfing.

Envision this perfect day! Wake up in your elegantly tropical, ocean front cabana to the sound of crashing waves of the warm Pacific Ocean.

Roll out of bed on no one’s schedule but your own and meander your way to morning coffee or tea, feeling the warm Panama sun on your skin.

Enjoy a soulful, sweaty yoga session, crafted and inspired by your deepest intentions, whether that be rocking a new pose or blissfully resting in child’s pose .

Enjoy a delicious, gourmet breakfast before you head out to your complimentary surf lesson with expert local instructors, where you will bring along a packed picnic basket to stay energized for your beach day.

Or perhaps you want to stay back, read a long-ignored book, and chill by the salt water pool, where you just may meet your new best friend or finally have that long, uninterrupted deep conversation with the bestie who you came with you on this awesome adventure!

Fill your hours with beach, surf, snorkeling, kayaking or siestas until our evening practice where we will dive deeper into  asana, meditation, intention-setting. Then, guess what? Do it all again for six more days!!!
