An unforgettable & rejuvenating Coastal Yoga and Sea Kayak Retreat in Panama
January 15-23, 2022
Join us for a unique trip that offers yoga, sea kayaking, SUP, and other fun activities, while discovering the diverse beauty and culture of Panama. Treat yourself to this dream holiday, which will rejuvenate and awaken your adventurous spirit. You’re worth it!
Days 1 – 3: We meet in Panama City and immediately head to a beautiful retreat center on the Pacific coast for three days of yoga, healthy meals, and relaxation. Optional activities include stand-up paddling, surfing, massage, village visits, and hiking. This is a great way to start the adventure!
*All levels of yoga practitioners welcome! Mats and props provided. Leigh Lubin, founder of Yoga Currents in Valdez, Alaska, is my co-leader.
Days 4 – 7: (*The following is from previous 3 years of trips. 2022 may see a change. We will either return to Guna Yala on the Caribbean, as stated below, or head to Santa Catalina on the Pacific side, to explore the beautiful Coiba Island National Marine Park.)
We will travel to the Caribbean coast of Panama for four days of island hopping with sea kayaks, snorkeling, lounging in hammocks, sipping from coconuts, and immersing ourselves in the fascinating Guna culture. The Guna are an indigenous group of Panama and we will be staying in and exploring their semi-autonomous territory, called Guna Yala (aka San Blas Archipelago). The saying goes there is an island for every day of the year! Guna Yala is a diverse tropical paradise and the Guna are happy and enthusiastic to share their traditional ways of life with visitors.
*No previous kayaking experience is necessary. All instruction and equipment will be provided, including colorful hammocks and coconuts.*
Days 8 – 9: Back to Panama City. Our final day will include visiting Casco Viejo, a picturesque and historic “Old City” on the Pacific coast. Here we will dine on traditional Panamanian cuisine and bid our farewells after an incredible journey together.
*Private transportation to/from all destinations, comfortable accommodations, wholesome meals, hammocks, and kayak gear will be provided. Airfare to-and-from Panama is not included.
