Take a trip with me..... between the waves

Come with me to Panama, the land between the oceans, a tropical paradise of jungle and surf.  Journey between the waves of water... the waves of color... the waves of thought on a yoga retreat that weds jungle and ocean, yoga and nature.

Ashtanga practitioners of all levels of experience are welcome to join me for a 6 day yoga retreat in the quaint, little beach village of Santa Catalina in Panama. World renowned destination for surfing, diving, snorkeling, hiking and contact with nature.

Coiba National Park

Coiba National Park is an UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site and a must see while you are in Panama. Coiba is located just 37 kilometers (23 miles) from our shores, making Santa Catalina the gateway to the national park. This ecologically rich archipelago includes over 1,687 square miles of both marine and jungle habitat. Spanning over 430,000 hectares in all, makes it one of the world’s largest marine parks. Snorkeling you can expect to see reef sharks, sea turtles, eels, puffers, parrot and many other colorful tropical fish. Humpback whales are seen in migratory route from August to November. They both mate and give birth in this area. It is not uncommon to see a female humpback with a newborn calf.
