FLUENCY AND FLOW RETREAT DESCRIPTION

This unique 6-day retreat in exotic, coastal Panama, combines Spanish instruction, yoga practice, a beach setting, and local culture.  Top this off with comfy, eco-friendly accommodations and healthy, home-cooked tropical fusion meals prepared by a master chef, and you have the makings of an unforgettable holiday getaway. 

This retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga and for Spanish beginners, as well as those who want a review.  During the sessions, you will experience a stimulating yoga practice while receiving ample amounts of Spanish language input.  You will then be able to apply what you have learned during carefully designed, yet fun, communicative activities, and on excursions to restaurants, to a traditional marketplace, to a village of the Embera (one of Panama’s indigenous cultures), and to the sites we will visit on a tour of modern Panama City. 

But it won’t be go, go, go all the time.  There will also be plenty of time to relax, to swim in the Pacific, (just a 5-minute walk from the retreat center), to stroll along the pristine, deserted beach, or to just swing in a hammock.  Additionally, there are the options of massages and SUP (stand-up paddleboard) instruction.  No matter what you choose, your body, mind, and soul will be refreshed, rejuvenated, and energized by the end of your stay.
