A week of true retreat in one of the dreamiest places on earth? We've got it covered. This six-night, seven-day retreat is all about refreshing your heart, body, mind and soul. Exhale the winter doldrums, soak in the sun, dip in the saltwater, be free and be you. Slow down and tune in to your capacity for healing, strength, balance and more. 


Elizabeth April and Checka Antifonario will lead this retreat at the stunning Sansara Resort in the small village of Cambutal, located on the Pacific Ocean at the southernmost point in Panama. Elizabeth and Checka bring over twenty combined years of inspiring, informative and dedicated teaching to this retreat, along with ever-present warmth and passion for life.


Our days will include two all-levels practices (mainly yoga with some barre sprinkled in for balance and variety) and the nourishment of three delicious locally sourced meals. During your free time, there is SO much to do - or not do! Bikes, snorkel gear, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards are all available for your use at Sansara. You can arrange a massage right at the resort. Interested in surf lessons? That's Sansara's specialty. Or maybe hammock or beach chill time with nothing on the agenda will be exactly what you need.

Sansara has become a world-renowned destination for the wellness inspired traveler not only because of its pristine location and luxurious accommodations, but because they treat their guests like family - which is why so many return again and again to this special place in paradise!
