Retreat to Recharge - Sansara Signature Retreat Collection

Sunday, January 15 - Saturday, January 21, 2023

Fill your days with Yoga, MELT Method, Meditation, relaxation, surfing, and adventure in paradise. Join us for an equally restorative and energizing experience for body and mind at the beautiful Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort located facing the Pacific Ocean in the stunning Azuero Peninsula of Panama.

At Sansara we believe we have created a rare and special place for the individual traveler to "disconnect to reconnect." Your stay here will be a unique opportunity to breathe, unwind, tune into yourself, discover your current needs and desires, be inspired, and take time to become the best version of you. It will not only offer inspiration and renewal during your stay, but Sansara will encourage growth long after you return home.

It is our sincere hope that you find whatever it is you seek here, and be open to unexpected growth.

ONE SPACE REMAINING!!!
Challenge yourself to
  • RECONNECT
  • WITH YOUR BEST SELF

MEET YOUR LEADERS

Our roots as two basketball-playing-prairie-girls is what makes us an effortless team in our roles as retreat leaders. Our individual paths led us from our native countries of Canada and USA to Cambutal, Panama over a decade ago in search of a simpler life: one full of community, connection, nature and of course, sunshine!

We believe in meeting you where you are at, and gently challenging you outside your comfort zone. We move intentionally but without expectation. We aim to inspire both your inner child and the warrior within. We have over 25 years of combined experience in health and wellness and love empowering you to be your happiest, healthiest self.

Our personal lifestyle and retreats share the same mission: Balance & Flow. We like our matcha as much as our margaritas. We wake early to surf and and can happily hammock away an afternoon. As we intentionally move through our days, we strive to keep ourselves, families, businesses, friends and community equally tended to.

During this week's retreat we look forward to hosting and guiding you for what will be an adventurous, fun, relaxing and transformative experience.

Janel Phillps Founder and Co-Owner of Sansara Resort

Sansara came to life out of a deep drive to create a sense of home for others, where all are welcome and encouraged to be curious and explore the depth of a fulfilling and empowered life. Janel is not only the co-owner and operator at Sansara but our primary yoga teacher at Sansara. She is known for her lighthearted but highly specific approach to the yoga practice and believes in the power of the practice. Encouraging students that every time one steps onto the yoga mat there is an opportunity for growth and greater understanding of the self, both physically and spiritually. When she's not on her mat, you can find her spending time with her beloved husband or running the beach with their 2 kids.

Stacy Fisher Founder, Fisher Fitness

Stacy is an Exercise Science graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and forever student of the human body. She has taught thousands of people across the world how to move with purpose since 2005. Her training style blends proven training methods to gain strength and flexibility, while simultaneously improving alignment and decreasing inflammation. Although Stacy established her business with the name 'Fisher Fitness', she believes true wellness extends far beyond "physical fitness". She offers a holistic approach for others to achieve "fitness" equally in body, mind, and spirit. Stacy lives in Jackson Hole, WY, and Cambutal, Panama with her husband and daughter. She loves to cook, dance, and travel this big beautiful world.

Liz Saville Retreat Coordinator

Liz is absolutely passionate about creating atmospheres for diverse groups of people to connect and share in her love of adventure, travel, sport and wellness. This will be the fourth retreat experience Liz has co-led at Sansara and she will be orchestrating daily adventures as well as ensuring that all your needs are met throughout the retreat process. She'll be the one supporting you through your six "best days ever". Liz is an educational consultant who lives in British Columbia, Canada where she loves to spend time in the mountains skiing and hiking with her husband and two kids.
