February 17 - 24, 2018 in PANAMA!!!
4th annual - Yoga, Reiki and Excursions Retreat
Calling all yogis and adventure travelers! This trip has it all, and is NOT to be missed!
Join us for an incredible off-grid holiday where you'll gather with like-minded people to invigorate the mind and body, and to recharge the spirit.
We are SO excited to host our FOURTH Annual Yoga, Reiki + Excursions Retreat at the stunning Santa Catalina Wellness and Retreat Center in PANAMA: www.santacatalinaretreats.com
This is a perfect WINTER GIFT to yourself where you'll get to nourish and reconnect, unwind and reenergize, laugh with like-minded people and be quiet when you like; it's anything and everything you want to to be!! As always, we attract an incredible community of yogis + friends and our week together will be a beautiful, deep, hilarious, healing, active, and inspiring version of each of us!
In a charming and tranquil village, about a 5 hour drive south west of Panama City on the Pacific Coast, lies a remote and laid-back little surf town called Santa Catalina. Filled with raw natural beauty, this hidden gem of Central America is a natural paradise! This secluded ocean front spot is the perfect choice for a chill week of yoga, reiki healing, surfing, culture and ceremony.
Come deepen your practice, with a playful yet clear approach. You'll have space to explore both movement and stillness, making way 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.
Excursions as always are included! We'll surf, horseback ride, visit and shop at a local village, SUP paddle board + yoga and take part in a beach fire ceremony. We'll also have the chance to peak at the historic and world famous Panama Canal! There will be lots of free time to lay in a hammock, soak in the sun, indulge in a spa treatment and embrace the friendly locals. You will feel inspired to find your own pace and to give yourself exactly what you need at every moment + you'll be fully supported to do just that for yourself!
* All levels of practitioners are welcome; however, a reasonable level of physical fitness and experience with vinyasa yoga is assumed.

Angela and Yuval
"AMAZING!!!! I cannot say enough about this experience. First, let's start with the two wonderful organizers and incredible yoga instructors. Angela and Yuval brought so much love, experience and warmth to this retreat. They each taught with a different style and both were equally amazing! They were so helpful in really paying attention to each yogi in the room and helping to make their practice better. I really looked forward to each morning and evening practice every day! The group that came together was truly an amazing and inspiring group. We enjoyed each other's company all week long, laughed a lot, had great discussions and supported one another during our practice each day. I cannot wait to do another retreat with the two most incredible yogis, Angela and Yuval"! ~ Jeannine, San Francisco
"I had an amazing time on this retreat. Angela and Yuval were truly impressive with the planning, details, fantastic yoga and awesome excursions. I met a great group of people that will remain lifelong friends. The yoga instruction was incredible and it was a true break from the "real world". Huge kudos to Angela and Yuval for a retreat well done! I plan to join you next year and I can't wait"! ~ Denise, Phoenix
"Awesome trip! All logistics were well taken care of. Angela and Yuval are amazing yoga teachers. Highly recommend their annual yoga retreat to all levels of yogi!" ~ Wilma, NYC
"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
"Our retreat with Angela and Yuval was magical. It was the perfect amount of yoga mixed in with the perfect amount of adventure. The setting couldn't have been any more beautiful or serene. I treasure my memories of Guatemala and the time spent practicing with Angela, Yuval and the group ❤️ I can't wait for the next one!!" ~ Melissa, Tampa
