About This Event

Join us for an 8 day, 7 night retreat in one of the most pristine locations in Southern Nicaragua, nestled in the coastal jungle and surrounded by the serene beauty of the sea. This retreat offers daily yoga and fitness, meditation and soul work, ceremony, nature therapy, and tons of free time to relax, unwind, and savour your time in the wild.

The Strength of Spirit retreat is all about finding the harmony of body, mind, spirit and soul. It is a space where we can support one another and be equally supported as we do the deep work of beginning to transcend trauma, injury and grief and we allow ourselves to step into the spirit of the heart and all of the strength, softness and courage that we hold within. As well, we will work with somatic reconnection with the physical body, so whether you want to kick back, go slowly and relax, or kick it up a notch and move the body to its full potential, there will be something for you! Most importantly, we will work with honouring the personal needs of each person on a physical, emotional and spiritual level, so you can go at your own pace, do the work or just relax, and know that your process will be supported and valued however you choose to engage.

Included in your price, which is based on double occupancy of the most amazing cabinas (private occupancy is available), are the daily yoga and fitness classes and all ceremonies and workshops, all meals and snacks, which will be vegan and locally sourced, a massage, a surf lesson, a salsa lesson (and possible salsa outing!), a jungle excursion, community engagement through beach clean up and sea turtle conservation, and a trip to town.

This retreat is a space for people of all genders, identities, cultures and expressions to find their inner harmony, and to do the work in community. We will work in a soft way but a powerful way through somatic expressions of the body, emotional expressions of the soul and spiritual expressions of the heart.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
