The accommodation is arranged at the Magnific Rock. Perched on a 30-meter cliff face, Magnific Rock offers guests an unparalleled experience, with a variety of accommodation options, beautiful restaurant and bar, yoga, surf activities, and the best views of Popoyo's best surf breaks like Popoyo, Outer Reef, Popoyo River mouth, and Santana's. Amenities include onsite bar with live music, swimming pool, surf boards and paddle boards for rent, laundry service, and outdoor shower.

The retreat in a brand new year focuses on yoga and encourages you to dive deep into asanas. This retreat marks a pivot point. It is a moment to stop, feel, integrate, and consciously propel in a new direction. You will use the physical practice of Hatha yoga as a catalyst to crack open the rough exterior of your mind. The goal is to temporarily arrest the flux of emotion and feeling that keep you convinced of personality and habits, so that you may have a new experience.

This is available to all skill levels. Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, there will be an opportunity to grow. To truly receive, there is only one requirement, which is an open mind and heart.

A catamaran cruise is included in the package.

  • Ryan Jaqua

    Ryan is a certified personal trainer and yoga teacher by trade. His abilities stretch across the bandwidth of wellness to cooking, nutrition, life coaching, meditation, and art/music. Through his own example he seeks to foster a greater understanding of the necessity of balanced living and contentment in his students and clients. He seeks to bring to his students the most realized parts of his own yoga practice and life experience. With his roots in Anusara yoga, he has sought out dynamic teachings and practitioners

The retreat takes place in Nicaragua. The vast Pacific Ocean forms her western border, the balmy Caribbean Sea forms the east. It is a warm and friendly land of lakes and mountains, rivers and volcanoes, sea and sun. The country is divided into three geographic regions, the Pacific lowlands on the west, the mountainous Central region and the Atlantic lowlands on the east.

The country is multi-ethnic with no official religion. Nicaragua's population is very young, 60 percent are under 17 years of age. Mestizos of mixed Indian and Spanish blood make up the majority of the population and they are the originators of Nicargua's colorful folklore, music, and much of its religious tradition.

Three locally inspired meals are served daily. Special needs and food allergies can be accommodated, if informed in advance.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

The following dietary requirements are served and/or catered for:

  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)
  • Other dietary requirements on request
(If you have special dietary requirements its a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation)

    "I truly feel so grateful that everything lined up for me to go! It was such a unique experience that could never be recreated again. I loved the location, the food, and having such experienced and knowledgeable teachers (both John and Sarah). The packets of information were a great aid to the learning and getting an aloe plant to work with definitely heightened the experience. Overall, I came back with a stronger connection to nature, myself, and the community around me. I definitely felt like I was on a higher vibration. Oh, and I love the air plant necklace."

    "The entire weekend was inspiring and insightful. The retreat house was magnificent with beautiful views of the water, and a great layout to allow for group intimacy and separateness[ if desired].Jon was a compelling teacher who invited the group to embrace difficult concepts which he made accessible and understandable. He was always available for individual discussions if questions arose. I appreciated his passion and the depth of knowledge about the subject. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Paige, went out of her way to respond to each individual 's dietary needs and incorporate them into her menu. The attention to detail in that regard was extraordinary. The paddle boarding and kayaking made for a welcome break, and allowed members a great opportunity to metabolize the complex concepts they were integrating.The weekend flowed beautifully. It was restorative and uplifting."

    "I knew David when he was in his corporate role, when he was known as the bulldog. His persistence and go get ‘em attitude served him to lead a successful real estate career. He was the guy you wanted to have a cigar and a scotch with after a long day’s work. I also had the pleasure of traveling with him through Colombia after he decided to break away from the daily grind to embark on his transformational journey. Not only was David an amazing, highly competent and engaging host, but the perseverance I saw behind the office desk transformed seamlessly into a truly inspirational soul searching guide. He’s still the guy I would like to have a cigar and a scotch with - right after a nice long yoga or meditation session."

    "During his stay with us at the Peace Retreat, David was always enthusiastic and engaging. He was both serious about his yoga practice yet light-hearted and fun to be around. I look forward to working with David again in the near future."

    "I began working with David as a healer and mentor. Over the years I have seen David’s unshakable commitment to working on healing himself and mastering the techniques that would serve him in passing his passion and his skills onto others. David has always been willing to dig deep within himself to get to ever greater levels of self-realization. What has emerged is an authentic, grounded and wholly compassionate individual with a true love of his life and his work and the skills and techniques to guide others through their own transformational journeys. Now I have the pleasure of working side by side with David to help him turn his dream and his work into a reality."

    "Kudos David! The Ranch in Carbondale is beautiful, calming, and an amazing place to open your heart and feel alive. From meditative hikes to group workshops, organic and local foods to soaking in the Jacuzzi under the stars the retreat left me feeling rejuvenated, aware, and with a higher understanding on bringing my aspirations and goals to fruition. David is a great soul and the Life Force Project will certainly bring you one step closer towards enlightenment."
