Rise and Thrive in Panama
Renew, Relax and Adventure Retreat

Sunday March 30 - Saturday April 5, 2025

Join us for the ultimate rejuvenating experience at our retreat in Cambutal, Panama. Start your mornings with invigorating active yoga sessions, designed to move your body and energize your spirit. Led by Suzette Hanson, these sessions will set the tone for an empowering day ahead.

As the sun sets, transition into a state of deep relaxation with our restorative yoga classes. These gentle practices are tailored to soothe your mind, release tension, and restore balance. And, to enhance your relaxation experience, Dr. Sara Poldmae will incorporate acupuncture during Savasana. Drift into a state of bliss as you receive the healing benefits of acupuncture, amplifying the rejuvenating effects of your yoga practice.

In between yoga sessions, indulge in plenty of leisure time to bask in the warmth of the sun or explore the myriad adventures that Sansara has to offer. Whether you're hopping on a bike, paddle boarding, surfing or sunbathing by the pool, our retreat provides the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure.

Discover the true meaning of rejuvenation and leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to thrive.
Allow yourself to be open
  • to new outward experiences,
  • opening up space for inward growth.
