Indulge in sunrise and sunset yoga with breathtaking ocean views of Panama. A third surprise class including body sculpting barre, meditation, breathwork, restorative, inversions, and more will also be offered. Ring in the new year with them and happy new you!
Sansara’s pool seems to be melting into the ocean, surrounded by handmade cabanas with tropical hardwood furniture, winding flower-lined wooden paths, and original art pieces revealing the culture of Panama. Each unique room carries the essence of the inspiring couple that created Sansara (the hosts Janel and Mike) from the recycled wood pieces and showers made out of raw stone, to the aromatherapy oil diffusers made out of crystal stones.
Ewa and Valentina create a light-hearted, fun, and genuine atmosphere. Expect to make international friends, share your story, and get a new perspective on things while having fun and enjoying the endless complimentary activities offered. Dive into the ocean or opt for snorkeling, stand up paddleboarding, and kayaking which are available at all times.
You can try the free group surf class and ride your first wave with inspiring surf teacher Nic Jacobson in which surfing sessions are available daily. Venture out on complimentary cruiser bikes through the friendly community of Cambutal, get coffee, and waffles at cafe La Finca while enjoying the lush green landscape. A spectacular New Year’s Eve awaits with the paper lantern make-a-wish ceremony, beach bonfire, and custom fireworks.
Ewa Josefsson is a certified yoga instructor of Swedish origin, based in Miami Beach where she teaches Vinyasa and Power yoga classes.

Born and raised in Italy, Valentina is a full-time certified yoga instructor dividing her time between Marin County, California, and Matapalo, Costa Rica. When she isn't hosting yoga retreats or blogging, Valentina can be found trail running and baking a quiche. She has blended her love of travel and yoga and created a nomadic lifestyle combining the two. Valentina's unique background comes from learning with different teachers from Italy, California, and the Miami area. Her teaching is authentic, intuitive, and compassionate. She teaches alignment-based Power Vinyasa, soft flow, and Yin yoga.
Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort is located on a stunning black sand surf beach on the Pacific Ocean, surrounded by rolling mountaintops and dirt roads. The district of Cambutal is far off the beaten track.
You will enjoy three healthy balanced meals each day with local produce and fresh seafood (vegan options available). Fresh fruit, local fair trade coffee, tea, and filter-water will also be available daily.
Ewa Josefsson & Valentina Rose recommends arriving in Panama City on December 27, staying one night in the beautiful old town called Casco Viejo in order to catch the free shuttle leaving for your final destination morning of December 28.
Similarly, you may want to spend the night of January 3 in Panama City since the free shuttle arrives late afternoon unless you find a flight that leaves later in the evening. Contact Ewa Josefsson & Valentina Rose before booking your flight and they’d love to assist you with recommended travel plans including hotels in Panama City.
