Stillwell Yoga + Surf Retreat

Sunday January 8 - Saturday January 14, 2023

Drop into a week of pure bliss at the beautiful Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort on Panama's Pacific Coast. Join Karyn Stillwell for a daily rhythm of yoga and meditation, surf, delicious food and lots of fun in a gorgeous jungle paradise.

Soak in the sunshine, swim in the warm waters and enjoy a true rejuvenation for your body, mind and spirit.

Morning yoga practices will be juicy vinyasa flow sessions, and afternoons will include restorative yoga, yin yoga, and mini workshops. We'll receive expert surf instruction from Sansara Surf and we'll have plenty of time to practice our new skills. Off the mat, enjoy the saltwater pool, take a 4WD to amazing tide pools, hike the jungle, explore the village, get a massage, connect with like-minded yogis, or simply revel in the beauty of your surroundings from your very own hammock.

No surf experience necessary. Open to beginners and seasoned yogis alike.

Spend your days soaking up the sun, eating delicious food prepared with local produce and practicing yoga in a gorgeous beachside yoga shala.

Karyn Stillwell Retreat Host & Yoga Instructor

Teaching yoga is my dharma and it fills me with joy, purpose and passion. I was fortunate to find my calling at an early age and I traveled to India at 21 to begin my yoga studies. My early training was rooted in the lyengar tradition followed by the Ashtanga tradition and my teaching reflects a balance between focused alignment and breath-centered flow. 25 years later, my love of yoga continues to shape and guide my life, both personally and professionally.

I strive to teach a thoughtful and dynamic class, and while I emphasize good form and focus, I aim to cultivate the deeper, less tangible gifts of the practice. I am also a longtime Thai Massage practicioner, which had given me a greater understanding of mindful movement, anatomy, deep listening and loving kindness. I live between the Olympic mountains and the Salish sea and I enjoy cooking good food, laughing out loud and being a mom to a tween and two cats.
