Riding the waves of life as well as the sea require that you first find your center and then rise up to explore your potential. Situated in the heart of Central America, Panama is the perfect place for this process to ripen. Surrounded by the sea, bridging North and South America, youll have the opportunity to dive deeper into yoga, culture, surfing, and the audaciousness that is Panama.
Deplane in comfort at the Bristol hotel in Panama City. This boutique luxury hotel bookends our island time with all of the comfort and amenities you can expect: delicious food, amazing spa and luxuriously appointed rooms. Enjoy top notch service and all the flavor of Panama City right outside your door.
Get ready for barefoot elegance, island style. Each Island Plantation room is designed and decorated with natural comfort in mind. All rooms have gorgeous open-air bathrooms, front pool-facing patios, overhead fan for evening comfort (though the ocean breezes keep you cool) and a zen style that eases you into ‘island time’. Many rooms have one king bed and one twin with private bathrooms while the one upstairs suite shares a bathroom between two rooms with the trade off of a hammock-ed porch and amazing ocean and monkey-dwelling tree views.
The yoga practice mirrors the process of learning to surf. Through daily meditation, pranayama and Vinyasa flow, you will bridge your core work and centering to balance your asanas. Youll explore your unique potential through individualized variations and bridge all that mat work with the rhythm of the Pacific waves. Off the mat youll find center on your surfboards where both beginners and experts are welcomed, enjoy amazing cuisine, and soak up an unforgettable Panamanian experience.
This unique retreats blend of sun, surf, and self will help you not just center and refresh but open the door to new possibilities by bridging the gap between work and play, sun and sea, and heart and soul.
Debra, the instructor, will set the yoga schedule each day on the coast, generally during mornings and evenings. While your time in Panama City is guided so that you can soak up as much of the culture and vibe as possible, your time on the coast can be spent surfing, chilling, kayaking, swimming, waterfall exploring, etc.
A guided city walking tour of Casco Antiguo, a UNESCO world heritage site, a naturalist guided tour of the Gamboa rainforest, and a waterfall, tide pool, or cave walk excursion are included in the price.
Debra (Debbi) Murphy
Exploring the mind-body connection is Debbi’s life work. After years in the academia researching and teaching subjects that elevated one or the other half of that equation (doctorate in exercise science, master’s degree in counseling psychology), she turned her attention to the study of yoga, a perfect nexus of both.
This retreat will take place in Panama. This small coastal community is yoga surf giddy and the perfect paradise to relax, sunbathe, and stargaze. The remarkable location and additions exclusive to The Travel Yogi trips make this the perfect spot for the adventure-travel-surfboard-carrying-culture-loving yogi.
