Nicaragua ~  February 25 - March 4th, 2017

3rd annual - Yoga, Reiki and Excursions Retreat 

with Angela Botta and Yuval Samburski

We're going back to the beach! Actually, we're going to be ON the beach!! Join us for a perfect winter escape and the gift to unwind, reenergize, and restore your energy...reconnecting to yourself and feeling at hOMe with an incredible community of yogis for a chill week of yoga, healing, surfing, culture and ceremony.  

We are so excited to host our Third Annual Yoga, Reiki + Excursions Retreat at Costa Dulce Beach Bungalows and Retreat Center in Nicaragua:

On a beautiful sandy beach, just 30 minutes south of San Juan Del Sur, you'll have a week off the beaten path, surrounded by natural beauty in the tropical dry forest, while living and breathing the beach. 

At Costa Dolce, natural living meets rustic luxury where every bungalow offers an ocean view, looking out to our private pristine beach. Wake to sounds of waves crashing, birds chirping and monkeys howling, find tranquility and peacefulness with stunning ocean views and epic waves!    

Come deepen your practice, while allowing space for a new perspective. Breathe, meditate, and receive Reiki from both Angela and Yuval while setting the groundwork for your own self healing. Explore the body in space, take time to flow mindfully and also slow down to "workshop" and investigate key actions required for a step-by-step approach to achieving a pose. 

As always, excursions are included and you'll have time to surf, horseback ride, visit a local village to learn about the native culture, and take part in a beach fire ceremony. Lots of free time to lay in a hammock, soak in the sun, or indulge in a spa treatment. You will feel inspired to find your own pace and to give yourself exactly what you need at every moment, AND you'll be fully supported to do just that for yourself! 

*** As a special GIFT from Yuval and Angela, we are happy to give you a 1-hr spa treatment of your choice (massage or acupuncture) for free, to help you further relax into "beach life" and exhale. This is from us to you, as a token of appreciation, simply for signing up :)

About Angela and Yuval:

Angela and Yuval are NYC-based yoga instructors and teacher trainers. Both are E-RYT 500, YogaWorks Certified and lead retreats and teacher trainings all over the world.  Known for smart, mindful, fluid sequencing with clear instructions of alignment, breath awareness and core stabilization throughout each practice.  You, as the participant, will have space to self-explore your body and your mind. As Angela and Yuval are both reiki masters, healing is an integrated part of most sessions.

On her mat, Angela feels she can be the most honest and true version of herself! Teaching is an extensive part of her own spiritual journey, and she encourages students to continually seek, question, explore, and unfold through the practice, looking beyond the physical to take the yoga state of being off the mat and into real life.

With experience in performance and art, Yuval is inspired by all creation and the undeniable power of breath and meditation.  His teaching is personal, nurturing and humorous, allowing for self-observation and a true teaching and learning experience between him and his students.

Testimonials -

"Angela and Yuval created a fun and supportive yoga community that helped me relax and recharge. I simply loved the tag team teaching they offered each day. It was like attending a mini teacher training because they broke down each pose which allowed me to build and strengthen my practice. Highly recommend this dynamic duo"! ~ Toya, NYC

"I had the absolute pleasure of joining Angela and Yuval in CR this past winter for a week of yogic happiness. A complete cocktail of body, mind and spiritual healing. Together, they have a natural way of sharing a unique package of heartfelt genuineness, humor, form and flow. Along with yoga, a few adventurous activities and carving out your own time, you are sure to have plenty of laughs and perhaps a few yummy tears". ~ Tara, Boston

"You are both VERY good teachers, and I'm picky!" ~ Karen, NYC
