     Join us on the Pacific Coast of Panama for a week of surf & yoga bliss.    WHATS INCLUDED:    Six (6) nights of luxury accommodations  Daily Surf Instruction (up to 2,  3 hour sessions)  Surf Board Rentals & Transportation to the breaks.  Post Surf Video Analysis   Daily yoga classes overlooking the Pacific Ocean  Yoga mats, yoga props provided  Three (3) healthy balanced meals each day  Complimentary use of SUP boards, Kayaks, and Bikes  Luxury Van Transportation to and from Panama City to Sansara, Cambutal  Organic bathroom products, high quality linens and beach towels provided  Local coffee, tea and filtered-water  Hypo-allergenic bedding and towels  Organic spa products in every cabana  Beach bonfire celebration (weather permitting)  Endless good vibes, rest, relaxation, adventure, belly laughs.    The Sansara Surf & Yoga Experience    At Sansara we believe Surf & Yoga are lifestyle practices that go beyond the scope of being on the mat, or in the ocean. During this week, experience the blissful energy of the waves and allow the mind body spirit to become one and the surf- yoga connection to be felt.     The Surf:    This week is designed with both beginner and intermediate surfers in mind. Allow Surf Sansara’s expert surf coaches to support you on your way to riding the waves and improving your technique. With two sessions available daily throughout your week, this immersion will expedite your surf journey and tune into your potential.   We pride ourselves on our unique teaching techniques, holistic hands on approach and deep understanding of the local surf breaks.   Whether you’re a beginner wanting to stand up on the board for the first time, an intermediate surfer wanting increase your wave count, or advanced surfer looking to test your skills on our empty point breaks, our expert coaches and guides have tips, tricks and technical advice READY to guide you to the next level.   Surf into Yoga :   We are constantly combining these two practices at Sansara. In fact our first "surf" lesson always begins in our yoga shala. It is here where our surf coaches tap into the mental and physical components that yoga offers, and present them on a surfboard.   This demonstrates to all our of surfer/yogis the beautiful synergy that is about to take place.   Between surf sessions, we offer daily yoga classes. Together we roll out our mats, connect to breath and stretch out those sore surfer muscles.

     Join us on the Pacific Coast of Panama for a week of surf & yoga bliss.    WHATS INCLUDED:    Six (6) nights of luxury accommodations  Daily Surf Instruction (up to 2,  3 hour sessions)  Surf Board Rentals & Transportation to the breaks.  Post Surf Video Analysis   Daily yoga classes overlooking the Pacific Ocean  Yoga mats, yoga props provided  Three (3) healthy balanced meals each day  Complimentary use of SUP boards, Kayaks, and Bikes  Luxury Van Transportation to and from Panama City to Sansara, Cambutal  Organic bathroom products, high quality linens and beach towels provided  Local coffee, tea and filtered-water  Hypo-allergenic bedding and towels  Organic spa products in every cabana  Beach bonfire celebration (weather permitting)  Endless good vibes, rest, relaxation, adventure, belly laughs.    The Sansara Surf & Yoga Experience    At Sansara we believe Surf & Yoga are lifestyle practices that go beyond the scope of being on the mat, or in the ocean. During this week, experience the blissful energy of the waves and allow the mind body spirit to become one and the surf- yoga connection to be felt.     The Surf:    This week is designed with both beginner and intermediate surfers in mind. Allow Surf Sansara’s expert surf coaches to support you on your way to riding the waves and improving your technique. With two sessions available daily throughout your week, this immersion will expedite your surf journey and tune into your potential.   We pride ourselves on our unique teaching techniques, holistic hands on approach and deep understanding of the local surf breaks.   Whether you’re a beginner wanting to stand up on the board for the first time, an intermediate surfer wanting increase your wave count, or advanced surfer looking to test your skills on our empty point breaks, our expert coaches and guides have tips, tricks and technical advice READY to guide you to the next level.   Surf into Yoga :   We are constantly combining these two practices at Sansara. In fact our first "surf" lesson always begins in our yoga shala. It is here where our surf coaches tap into the mental and physical components that yoga offers, and present them on a surfboard.   This demonstrates to all our of surfer/yogis the beautiful synergy that is about to take place.   Between surf sessions, we offer daily yoga classes. Together we roll out our mats, connect to breath and stretch out those sore surfer muscles.

     Bethany Lee earned her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification in Puerto Rico, studying under Power Yoga leader Renee Fussner. For fourteen years, she has brought passion and authenticity to her everyday practice. Her love of Yin Yoga, inspired her to take on additional training and certification (50 hours) in Mexico, studying Yin Yoga combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and meditation. She’s been certified in New York under Rose Erin Vaughn, building her skills in TCM, acupressure, healing and human anatomy.  Bethany believes that clean, healthy living combined with a daily yoga practice can bring about benefits for mind, body and spirit that cannot be attained any other way. Her Yin classes centre around meditation and activating meridian lines and acupressure points. These ancient traditions in a modern setting provide remarkable benefits, including increased energy, mobility, better sleep and reduced anxiety, stress and tension. Her Flow and Power Yoga series get the heart pumping, while her meditations provide calming visual journeys after every practice. Bethany’s teaching and courses will appeal to students who are seeking a deeper mind-body connection, are looking for ways to reduce stress and anxiety and see the value in a balanced, healthy lifestyle for body and soul.   Because she is truly passionate about living well, Bethany Lee founded  Barefoot Naturals , a botanical beauty company specializing in all-natural skin formulas for sensitive skin.

This is the perfect time to prepare for the transition of the end of the year and the journey that lies ahead.

     As a B.F.A Dance major at The Boston Conservatory, I began practicing yoga to supplement my dance training. Over time, yoga became a way for me to reintegrate not only physically, but emotionally. Fast forward a few years and injuries later, I began to pursue more extensive studies in the anatomy and physiology of the practice and I made the shift to teaching yoga full time. I left the dance performing world behind, but infuse its knowledge, detail, somatic awareness, and passion into my work.  Through my various studies, I discovered Threes Physiyoga, a method that merges physical therapy with yoga. My group classes, workshops, and private lessons combine corrective exercises and knowledge from the physical therapy world with and around the Kula Yoga style vinyasa practice. This challenges and evolves the ways in which we move and breathe, and sheds light on how we can create more efficiency and clarity in our individual mechanics, as well as rehabilitate and prevent some future injuries and pains.

     The classes I lead are taught primarily in the vinyasa style with emphasis on alignment, therapeutic work, pranayama, bandhas, and thoughtful and creative sequences. My intention is to offer a practice that creates the space and clarity needed to not only promote health, strength, and wellness, but to help you build the bridge between your body and spirit.    5Rhythms (by Gabrielle Roth)   As a long-time student and now a teacher of the 5Rhythms®, I strive to lead people out of their thinking heads and into their dancing feet so that they can remember who they are without the chatter of the mind. Through the dance, we cultivate awareness to our moving bodies, the space we are in, the people around us, and open the investigation to our relationships with ourselves, another, and the collective. With practice, we give way for the dance to trance us, allowing ourselves to disappear and be found and be everything and nothing. The 5Rhythms® practice has the ability to take us on a cathartic experience of our own journey through life, one in which we can retrieve our soulful right to be at peace with what and who we are.   The 5Rhythms® is the fastest way I know into spirit.

Students can expect to be greeted with a smile, a bit of yoga philosophy, some breath work, and a whole lot of strength-building flow. She is passionate about encouraging students through advances in their physical practice, managing stress, and moving beyond perceived limitations.  Anna trained with Rudy Mettia and Travis Eliot from Santa Monica Power Yoga, has been greatly influenced by Michelle Anderson, Shiva Rea, and Livia Cohen Shapiro, and has been practicing yoga for 18 years. When she’s not teaching, Anna is passionate about music, eating delicious vegan food, her Italian Greyhound Dottie, and going on adventures.

     Monica’s passion in life is to teach. She holds an M.A. in Elementary education and spent more than 15 years teaching elementary students, facilitating professional development workshops, and mentoring teachers and administrators in various school districts around the country. She began her yoga practice nearly 25 years ago as a means to calm stress during the daily rigors as a graduate student, which in turn led her to crave a deeper understanding of how the human body works.  Her love of yoga and movement as a desire for continued education led her to Kerala, India where she completed in an advanced training in the Tantric lineage. As an experienced teacher, with nearly 2000 hours of continuing education in movement, and as a life-long student she is committed to traveling across country to train exclusively with master teachers in the industries of yoga, biomechanics, functional movement and physiotherapy.  Monica is a movement educator, Reiki practitioner and Certified Yoga Tune Up® Instructor and continues to study directly with the creator of YTU®, Jill Miller. One of Monica’s top priorities is to teach students how to move effectively and intelligently. Without question, Monica has a passion for the human body and understands the human form on a considerably deeper level. Her intention is to awaken the importance of body awareness, optimal postural alignment, and functional movement patterns with every student she meets.  Committed to leading teacher trainings, hosting international yoga retreats and facilitating movement workshops, Monica’s overall objective is educating clients about their bodies.

      Charlotte  grew up as a self-proclaimed “non-athlete” until she discovered yoga at the age of 18 and acknowledged that she just needed to find an outlet that allowed her to feel both graceful and awkward at the same time. A few years after college, she developed a more dedicated practice and enrolled in a teacher training program at Konalani Yoga Ashram in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 2012. When Thunderbolt opened in 2014, she taught opening day and has continued to grow her teaching and her practice there ever since. As an E-RYT 200 senior teacher, she operates as a mentor for newer instructors and as the client relations manager for the studio as well. She hopes to always have the heart and soul of a student, her two main mottos are “make life colorful” and “move with awkward grace,” and she makes it her mission to bring yoga to any and everyone regardless of background or skill level. She believes in the inclusivity of the yoga practice, and she wants each of her students to own their authenticity on and off of the mat. Each class ends with the message she wants to embody and encourage in yoga and in life: “Be brave, be weird, be unequivocally you.”     

  

  	
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Founder and director of Thunderbolt Power Yoga,  Carly  grew up in Atlanta and attended The Westminster Schools and Virginia Tech, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.  During college, she began practicing yoga to escape her intense cheerleading training; a desire to find more purposeful friendships and cultivate a greater well-being kept her coming back. After a lifetime of perfection-based sports, yoga was the first thing Carly practiced where a perfect-ten mentality wasn’t required, and she delighted in yoga’s celebration of imperfection.  At only 24, she opened Thunderbolt as a community-based studio where instructors practice with each other, students make friends, and yogis count on clean spaces and familiar faces.  As a YA 200 E-RYT, Carly’s studied and practiced with influencers and teachers across the country.  In addition to teaching, she leads Carly Grace Power Yoga RYS Trainings, and generates content for her lifestyle/wellness blog,  carlygraceyoga.com .  When teaching, she encourages people to move like themselves, helps students be audaciously playful in their practices and lives, and hopes to inspire the “be for one another” mentality that shapes her business.

      Meet your Leaders:    Judy Smith LCSW/RYT500  Judy’s holistic psychotherapy practice and yin yoga classes are true restorative wellness. Her therapeutic practices encourage the unification of mind body heart and soul with the intention of living life in wholeness. Judy’s intention is to incorporate all practices of connection. She has spent 16 years on the mat and is certified in yoga nidra, meditation, cardiac yoga, pre-natal, senior and chair yoga, and yoga for people who have been touched by cancer. In addition, Judy has 25 years private practice as a certified hypnotherapist, in emotional freedom technique tapping and solution based holistic counselling.    S usan Kniseley-Foy  E-RYT200/RYT500/YACEP - Susan discovered yoga in 2001 and carried this gift with her through her life teaching abroad in Taiwan, Korea and Qatar during which she immersed herself in training in Anusara and Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow. She was amazed at yoga’s ability to calm the restless mind and create community, even in foreign lands. Susan’s teaching style is a mixture of energy, encouragement, lightheartedness and creativity. She brings lessons from these different yogic lineages with her; thoughtful assists from Ashtanga, alignment awareness from Anusara and offers a breath-connected Vinyasa flow. She strives to engage and empower her students and to help them find illumination in their practice in whatever way rings true for them. She considers yoga to be a constant lesson in “how to”…..everything…and finds it to be an essential pleasure and honor to keep on learning. On an extra special note, Susan is half Panamanian and fell madly in love with Cambutal as a child. Decades later, as a certified yoga teacher looking for yoga in Panama, she stumbled upon Sansara. Kismet, indeed.
