Angela Botta Yoga Retreat Nicaragua Program

In this retreat, you will have the opportunity to deepen your practice while allowing space for a new perspective. Breathe, meditate, and receive Reiki from both Angela and Yuval while setting the groundwork for your own self-healing. Explore the body in space, take time to flow mindfully, and also slow down to workshop and investigate key actions required for a step-by-step approach to achieving a pose. All levels of practitioners are welcome. However, a reasonable level of physical fitness and experience with Vinyasa yoga is assumed.

Reiki

Beyond your physical body, the layers of skin, muscle and bone, on a much more subtle level, you are proven to be an energetic system. Reiki (pronounced ray - key) is a 2,500 year old natural system of energy healing based on Eastern techniques used to harmonize and heal mind, body, and spirit. Reiki is derived from the Japanese and means “universal life energy” (Rei = spirit, Ki = energy).

Reiki is a very gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing practice which helps promote overall balance, reduce stress, and roots the body into relaxation. Energy healing can remove blockages on many levels, and is beneficial in creating and restoring harmony in all areas of life.

Along with many other ancient philosophies, Ki in Japanese, Chi in Chinese, prana in Sanskrit, or the Western terms light or life force energy, the concept springs from the same universal source of wisdom that connects us more deeply to ourselves and to the divine.

Included excursions

Excursions are included in the package and you will have time to surf, horseback ride, visit a local village to learn about the native culture, and take part in a beach fire ceremony.
