Yoga Retreat to Panama with Julia Paddison ​

Join Julia Paddison on an extraordinary journey inward; an opportunity to develop a deeper relationship with yourself through the practice of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.  Each day we’ll practice yoga and meditation together, and thrive on fresh, healthy, locally sourced vegetarian meals. Your belly will be feeling full, your heart feeling happy, your body feeling blissful, and your mind feeling recharged. This combination of yoga, meditation, sunshine, good food, and great company guarantees you the most incredible week in paradise!

During your week away in paradise, we want you to escape the stress of day-to-day life and allow each day to be as care-free and relaxing as possible. Istmo is only a short walk to the beach which means you can enjoy your day in the sun, lounging on the sand, or swimming in the Pacific Ocean. Or maybe you’d prefer to catch some shade while relaxing in a hammock with your favorite book. Don’t forget: naps are an important part of any vacation! For the adventure seeker, there are endless amounts of activities to keep you busy during the day, with excursion options, including surfing, use of stand-up paddle boards, cooking classes, massages, hikes, latin dance classes, day trips to local villages, and many more!

If you don’t have a friend to travel with, no problem! There are many wonderful people who are traveling alone on this trip. Please come along, enjoy, and make new friends.

Let’s keep it real, my friends: if your idea of a great vacation involves day drinking and/or late night partying, this retreat is probably not the best fit for you. However, if you are looking for an opportunity to fully immerse yourself into your yoga practice, potentially deepen your yoga practice, practice meditation and mindfulness, dig a little deeper within yourself, and overall, deepen the relationship you have with yourself, this is the exact experience you have been looking for! Students are encouraged to take their yoga practice, health, and safety seriously, by limiting or not partaking in alcohol (or other substance) consumption throughout the week, as a way to ensure that this retreat is indeed an extraordinary journey inward for all participants.
