During the retreat, you will stay at Casa Kon Tiki, Hacienda Iguana, Nicaragua. The rooms you will be staying at are all equipped with air conditioner. There is also an outdoor swimming pool where you can relax and unwind.

The kitchen has an oven, a microwave, and a toaster as well as a coffee machine. A flat-screen TV with cable channels and DVD player as well as an iPod docking station are available. Up the spiral staircase, you will enjoy the large palapa rooftop lounge. Dine, play a game, or swing in a hammock among the breezy tree-tops and take a peek at the ocean just beyond.

Casa Kon Tiki also has a private beach area and bike hire is also available.

Daily routines differ depending on the day but for the most part you will start the day with a nutritious and balanced breakfast and an energizing yoga or Pilates class led by one of talented and experienced instructors.

Later, you can enjoy some down time, have a massage, go explore, shop at the local stores, take a dip in the beach front pool, or go a few steps further and enjoy the warm and beautiful Pacific Ocean. Around mid day, you and the fellow guests will meet together for lunch and then either head for a surf at one of the many local surf breaks or head out on one of cultural excursions included in the package.

After returning from the activities, you can unwind and relax before sunset yoga class and dinner. The local beach bar is just a quick walk down the beach and you are more than welcome to explore and enjoy a refreshing cocktail or unwind as they see fit.

Included in this program is a cultural exchange. This is called Karma yoga day when you will get involved into local community by experiencing local cooking and exploring local markets.

  • India Reinartz

    Starting her journey when she was young, India immersed herself into a surf culture. She has guided surf in Morocco, managed surf camps in Portugal and Nicaragua, and has traveled all around the world in search for waves, culture, and exposure. Now she finds herself wanting to challenge her strengths and embark on her own business adventure, so India created Papaya Wellness, a dream of hers to teach, guide and share her love for the ocean through playing in the waves.

  • Carly Chivers

    Yoga combined with a dedicated passion for surfing has led Carly all over the world. She has been surfing and exploring Europe, North Africa, Indonesia, Hawaii, and currently Central America. Her love for the ocean influences and inspires her yoga practice. After years of study, Carly took the leap to become a 200-hour certified yoga instructor. Since then, she has been sharing her contagious love for yoga and the peace she finds on the mat with students on retreats and in private classes.

The retreat will be held in Casa Kon Tiki, Hacienda Iguana, Nicaragua. Located in the beautiful sea-side Hacienda Iguana community, this luxury retreat is hosted in the stunning beach front house in Panga Drops, a world-renown surf break. This community has a number of amenities, shops, and restaurants that guests are more than welcome to explore. No driving necessary as pedal bikes are offered as well as golf carts are available for taxing guests around the community.

    "I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed taking classes from you while doing the honeymoon thing in Gigante. Your classes were very inspiring and brought me a lot of joy and relief from my chronic back pain. Your natural exuberance for life and your yoga practice is contagious and I left each day filled with gratitude and an inner calm.Doing the 108 sun salutations on the solstice with you and Carly was amazing, one of my absolute favorite memories of our entire trip. Thank you for providing such a sweet little oasis in the papaya grove; it is a very special place."
