8 Days SoulTribe Fitness, Adventure, and Yoga Retreat in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua

Buena Vista Surf Club, Playa Maderas, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Fitness and Yoga Retreat Nicaragua

Ever felt like you wanted to be a bird or a monkey and be able to perch high up in the trees and look over the expansive jungle and ocean as far as you can see? This retreat is for people who want something different; to stay in a private cabaña amongst the trees, share family-style meals with new friends, watch the sunset and the stars from a treetop deck, and stroll five minutes to the pristine beaches of Playa Maderas. Your home for the week will be Buena Vista Surf Club, a breathtaking eco-lodge perfect for a week of chilled out comfort in the sun! The resort does offer Wi-Fi, but you’ll be encouraged to disconnect your phone and recharge your spirit!

You will find Buena Vista Surf Club off the beaten path in the pacific coastal hills of Nicaragua. You will find yourself in the midst of comfort, surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and exotic animals. There are couches for lounging, tables for playing board games, and beanbags to drag out onto the deck for sunbathing and stargazing.

At Buena Vista Surf Club, you are encouraged a digital detox. After all, you are amidst some breathtaking Nicaraguan nature. But for those who want to check-in with home, there is Wi-Fi access in the main lodge. Yoga will be taught on the open-air infinity deck. There is also a lower deck that is perfect for a shaded siesta in one of the hammocks or some yoga on a rainy afternoon.

Cabanas

There are six cabañas at Buena Vista Surf Club, built of hand-cut local Nicaraguan wood and are carefully situated in a way which has minimal impact on the environment. The calming interior accentuates the stunning nature and exotica which lies outside each cabaña.

All six cabañas are very much alike, they offer a simple and rustic, yet beautiful interior. All cabañas are equipped with fans and mosquito nets and have their own private bathroom. You will be provided beach towels which you can take with you to Playa Maderas, bottled water, and body wash.

Program

Feel stronger, clearer and more connected to you

Movement and play are a big part of this program. Your daily yoga and fitness classes are accessible and challenging for all, and designed to remind you that you can do anything you set your mind to - especially if you approach it with a sense of humor. You don't need to be a yogi or a fitness buff - you just need to be a human being interested in exploring, playing and growing through movement. If you’d like to dabble in the world of mindfulness and meditation without being too serious about it or want to learn to stand on your hands or on your head.

Start the day with a Vinyasa yoga class every morning with Nathania, get your workout on with Gary’s kickass Metabolic Effect workout (30 minute HIIT workouts at your own pace) and wind down with Restorative and Yin yoga and yoga Nidra meditation.

In between you can choose to:

  • Dig deeper and look at the way you’re showing up for yourself in different areas of your life with intentional group circles and discussions
  • Feel empowered as you face your fears with blood-pumping outdoor adventures that take you from “I’m not sure I can” to “OMG I did!”
  • Build confidence and strength and learn to stand upside down on your head and hands to see things from a different perspective (literally)
  • Rest and restore with guided Yoga Nidra meditations (also known as Yogic Sleep) that bring you to deep states of mental and physical relaxation
  • Connect to your inner kid with games and activities that remind you what it’s like to let loose, laugh with abandon and be at ease in your body
  • Nourish yourself with quiet time to hang on your own, read, enjoy a massage or connect one-on-one with incredible people from all over the world
  • Reclaim your power with adventures that make you feel alive!
  • Fear and stagnation can make us feel paralyzed in life. The best cure for inaction and fear of moving forward is to put ourselves in uncomfortable situations and learn to be ok with the discomfort. Life will throw us curve balls and undesirable circumstances; it’s how we react to those situations that determine our inner peace.

One of the ways to step out of the old comfort zone is with outdoor adventures! On this retreat, explore your limits mentally and physically in a safe and encouraging environment with a Volcano Boarding adventure!

Hike to the top of a volcano and slide down sitting on a board - a must-try experience! Always wanted to learn how to surf? There’s no better place than Manzano! Enjoy a beginner surf class or hit the waves on your own if you’re a pro.
