6 Night Pure Luxury Yoga Retreat in Panama

About us

Join us in exploring the theme, “Imagine the Possibilities” with the beautiful backdrop of Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort. Our retreat will focus on allowing yourself to trust - to notice untapped corners of the self, and to trust your unseen capabilities. The stunning beauty of the Panamanian coastline is the perfect setting for this retreat. You will have the chance to awaken your spirit, mind, and body at Sansara Resort, where the mountains meet the sea. Reconnect with your body and escape the day-to-day with the gorgeous luxury of Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort.


Located at the southernmost point of Panama in the Azuero Peninsula, Cambutal is a small village in the province of Los Santos, and is approximately 5 hours away from the country’s capital; Panama City. Where the mountains meet the sea, this quiet and nearly untouched area of Panama provides the perfect backdrop for a relaxing vacation experience.

Experience luxury, relaxation, and wellness on this Sansara vacation. Enjoy Sansara’s inviting beach and pool front restaurant offering nutritious meals and snacks throughout your stay. Cool off in the stunning salt-water pool overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. And relax on Sansara’s tranquil open-air beachfront yoga studio faces the Pacific Ocean.

A day can easily become filled exploring the miles of picture-perfect Pacific coastline, surfing the warm waters, or lounging in a hammock under the trees. The beautiful community of Cambutal awaits you; and you are invited to come flow at Sansara.
