3 Casitas Left!

A few highlights of this trip:

  • It will be just our group at Verdad - which only has 5 casitas and 2 pool rooms, secluded from 2 other retreat venues on the hillside. If we fill all 7 rooms there is a little house across the "street" with 3 more bedrooms.

  • We are looking at 10-18 people total. The yoga space is all ours, is outdoors (a covered palapa yoga deck) and has a view. You can hear the ocean. The breeze is delightful. Lots of wildlife. The beach vibes are dreamy, and the venue is new and modern.

  • 1-2 daily all levels yoga classes with Singer (all are optional). 4 meals a day included: pre-breakfast is the fourth meal!

RELAX AND RECONNECT WITH NATURE BY THE OCEAN

Hosted by Yoga with Singer (her 2nd trip to this location)

Verdad at Costa Dulce is surrounded by a seemingly endless tropical forest, expansive unobstructed views of sea and sky, abundant wildlife, gentle breezes and world class surf breaks. This community is untouched by overdevelopment and commercialism. As you marvel at the breathtaking hillside, you will experience the genuine Nicaragua on this trip.

After our daily yoga practice you will have many opportunities to explore the trails, surf, paddle board, horseback ride, fish, whale-watch, or simply, peacefully swing in a hammock or lounge by the pool with a good book.

We will unplug during this 7 night trip: We ask that Laptops or internet use takes place only in your own private lodging to respect other’s connection with nature during the week. Guitars and other acoustic musical instruments are welcome.
