Revitalizing Yoga Retreat Panama

If you have never been to Venao, Panamá, you are in for a treat. If you are returning for your second time, or your 20th time, you will understand the call of this magical place. This retreat is not about becoming a professional surfer or a professional yogi, is not about riding the biggest wave or achieving a strenuous headstand, but it is about your flow through life and also a lot about how much fun you are having in it. The surf boho chic culture and beach will be the home for a week of yoga, surf, meditation, relaxation, and top line fun.

Eco Venao

Eco Venao is located at the tip of the bay overlooking all of Venao Beach. Eco Venao offers relaxed eco-chic accommodation like no other boutique hotel in Venao. Rooms are spacious, and all the amenities are eco-friendly and home made in Panama with the finest ingredients. If you are looking to get away from it all, look no further. The retreat will be held down and across both the Casona and the beach town, which are just a 5-minute walk from each other.

Deluxe rooms

The retreat will be held inside one of the main houses called La Casona. Here is where you will all be sleeping if you choose to be inside a deluxe room. Located on a prime hilltop, La Casona’s breathtaking view alone is priceless. The colonial style architecture with high ceilings and thick walls combine luxury and solidity, inviting guests to feel comfortable and at home.

In order to look out over Playa Venao’s beautiful bay, you may choose to simply lift your head up off the pillow, or step outside onto your own private terrace.

Common spaces include a comfortable living room, terraces in the front and back of the house, and lovingly landscaped gardens, bordered by bird of paradise blossoms. The large, fully equipped kitchen, in combination with the bold and magnificent dining table, is certain to inspire many enjoyable meals during the retreat and where you will all nourish your holiday experience.

Depending on the number of people Yoga Retreats in Panama accommodates, Eco Venao also rents other houses around the same property that have the same facilities, but with some other different touches. All lovely and more adorable than the other one.

Hostel

Eco Venao is proud to include Playa Venao’s original surfer's hostel. It is the fruit of a restoration of the original 50-year-old farmhouse, which required vast amounts of patience and dedication. The time and love that has been put into the lodge can be felt the minute you enter it, and is often commented on by guests.

This surfer style dormitory has sweet style bunk beds that can accommodate you for a more affordable experience. The cool wood structure and ceiling fans, along with comfortable quality mattresses make this the perfect resting place after a long day of surfing, yoga, horseback riding, exploring, or simply having too much fun.

Wake up to the sound of howling monkeys and go to sleep with the hypnotizing sound of the waves rolling onto the sand right out front.

Check out the options for your stay at La Casona (more luxurious space), private casitas or inside the hostel dorms. Either option is great, and Yoga Retreats in Panama is confident you will find something you like.

When Katherine and her partner Sofia moved 6 years ago to this Area of Panama, they completely fell in love with Venao. There was something about its simplicity that the city never gave them and they really wanted to learn. Not much time passed so that they learned about the love of home cooking, home reading, long walks on the beach, and splurging some days on a few beers out in the local bar. They engaged in new activities of course such as learning how to surf.

The fun part of all is that they still don´t know how to surf, and maybe never will, but also accepting that is part of the big lesson surf has on them. There is a lot of surrendering to do with nature and the waves of the ocean are to me a mirror of their own life.

They never forget Pema Chodron saying that life will always come and hit them like a big wave, but the magic started right there when you can watch the sky from above, all full of sand up to your ears and eyes, and still be able to come back up, and surely have a great laugh.

There is so much related between surf and yoga, and they both add so much into each other. Surf gave them back that playfulness that they sometimes don’t have as yogis. Yoga gives to the flowy surf some balance and both together make great lovers.

They always try to remind themselves to have some time and a space to dedicate to them and to their inner child. Let’s be wild and playful and come to play, get nurtured, and smile.

A 35-minute flight to Pedasi from Panama City´s domestic airport or a 4.5 hours' car ride from Panama City, Venao Beach is one of Panama’s most beautiful beaches facing the big blue Pacific ocean. Coming to Venao, you will leave dusty towns behind, entering the rolling hills of the southern tip of the Peninsula of Azuero. A curvy road will take you past cowboys and rice-fields to this beautiful beach full of sunlight, Playa Venao surf, and good times.

The Azuero Peninsula

The Azuero Peninsula with its white-sand beaches, soft rolling hills, and world-class water sports is home to Panama’s most attractive small town, Pedasi­. A four-hour drive from Panama City, Pedasi­ is the home base for world class surfing, diving, and sport fishing. An increasing number of foreigners are moving to the area attracted by the beautiful scenery and friendly people with this special small town at the center of it all. The region is also famous for countries best carnival celebrations in Las Tablas and as the cradle of Spanish colonial culture.

Pedasi­, the center of tourism activity in Azuero, benefited as the birthplace of Panama’s only woman president Mireya Moscoso (1999 - 2004), who beautified the town and built the locals recreational and other facilities. Pedasi­ is now hands down Panama’s most attractive small town, low key, no ugly commercial signs and friendly where Panamanians hang out on their front porch at night and foreigners come and go to local restaurants, businesses, and nearby beach, fishing, and surfing venues.

The town has a good beach, Playa del Toro. Nearby activities include sport fishing, surfing, snorkeling, horseback riding and whale watching in season. Pedasi­ is 30 minutes from Venado Beach, one of the best surfing beaches in Central America.

The Azuero Peninsula has attracted a small roster of celebrities, including Hollywood movie stars and the rich and famous who have bought large tracts of land as nature reserves, exclusive getaways or simply as investment properties. It has three upscale residential resort communities: Azueros and the beachfront communities of Andromeda and Costa Pedasi­.

Azuero is famous for religious festivals dating back to Spanish colonial times. Many towns have 17th and 18th-century churches. It is also home to Panama’s best carnival celebration in Las Tablas where thousands gather for a colorful, exhilarating, and raucous event.

Countryside life in the Azuero Peninsula is largely unchanged since the turn of the century. Visitors relish the way life slows down as if one were traveling back in time. People are friendly and prices are low.

The town of Chitré on the way to Pedasi­ is a good place to grocery shop and stock up on other supplies. It has large grocery and hardware stores, movie theaters, 3-star hotels, American fast food joints, etc. Here, the urban and traditional worlds comfortably mix. You will see both country people on horseback and businessman in SUVs talking intensely on cell phones.

    "I do yoga retreats yearly and even lived in an ashram for 2 months, so I'm very familiar with the benefits of these kinds of getaways. This year was different for me because I was introducing my boyfriend, to this whole experience and I was really hoping that he would embrace the whole thing whiteout feeling like it was a foreign world. I have to say that from the moment we walked in we felt welcomed, like a family.The food Kathy would prepare was wholesome and as good or even better than the food your Abuelita would make you. The love was the #1 ingredient. The Yoga was uplifting and sensorial, with music and aromas that would stay with you beyond your practice. The inner spiritual work was beyond the physicality of the practice. This was one of the most rejuvenating experiences for both of us, he got sold on the whole yoga retreat and wants to make this an annual experience.I could not agree more and feel that I will always owe you Kathy the gift of wanting to spend more time in the kitchen cooking with love, uplifting vegetarian foods for my friends, and family. You were so beautiful to see!"

    "I and my husband have had the great pleasure of participating now in several of the yoga and surf retreats with Katherine and Brian. The energy, light, love, nurturing and transformation that happens during these beautiful retreats is profound and I feel renewed and refreshed at a deep level every time I leave. I also see this happening for each participant that commits to the retreat, they leave feeling expanded, nourished and alive. It is not only a fun adventure with amazing people in a tropical beach paradise it is also a very safe and healing space that Kathy and Brian create for people to open up, allow their vulnerability and to be themselves. It really is a space of unconditional love, this comes through the food by the amazing and sweetie pie organic chef Erin, the powerful yoga classes, the workshops and the yummy hugs. Book in, you won't regret it, it will change your life. Personally, I can't wait for the next one!"

They are great teachers, full of love, and eager to share their knowledge and practice.The detox part was a bit challenging at the beginning if you never did it in your life, but after three days, it felt natural and easy. At the end, I felt very strong mentally and physically. I highly recommend it. As far as the place is concerned, El Valle de Anton, it was magical. Being surrounded by mounts and forests is perfect for meditating and recharging one's batteries.I will renew this yoga retreat experience."

    "It has been a busy week getting back to reality here in New Mexico! I'm barely getting caught up on e-mails. Just wanted to take a second to tell all of you to thank you! It was an amazing week! What a beautiful surprise to have started the journey with complete strangers (except for my dear friend Brian, of course), and at the end of it, feeling like each of you was a part of my family.I had beautiful moments with each of you, that I won't ever forget. There were moments during the week, with the sights and sounds of the ocean and the jungle that were so overwhelming, I felt as if my heart would burst! Driving back to the city was such a bittersweet experience, as we all were singing along to Natalie's playlist, I reflected with tears in my eyes as I said 'hasta luego' to the beach. I can feel everything that we worked on manifesting in my daily life. Trying to take a moment to really listen to everyone that comes into my office, and at the very least look every person in the eyes and not try to just hurry on to the next thing. Kathy, Grace and Brian, you are each beautiful rays of sunshine! I wish you love and success as you go on to share your practices. I have been raving to everyone that will listen about this experience and I hope to send more student your way!!I really believe that slowing down and really taking the time to understand each other could be the key to healing the world, one heart at a time. Know that each one of you has a home, if you ever come to visit New Mexico!"
