Program

Day 1: Sunday (May 27, 2018)

Arrive at Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA) and meet your local driver as you exit customs. Enjoy the two-and-a-half-hour-drive to San Juan del Sur. Get settled in your room, meet your roommates for the week, and go out to the beach. Enjoy dinner, a meet and greet, and learn a bit about Nicaragua before a gentle post-travel yoga and meditation session.

Day 2: Monday (May 28, 2018)

Wake up bright and early for sunrise yoga before a delicious breakfast of local fruit, fresh coffee, protein, and the Nicaraguan specialty, gallo pinto. Get ready for your first surf lesson which is included in your trip. Wind down your day with afternoon yoga, a healthy fresh cooked dinner, and time to reflect, sleep, or socialize.

Day 3: Tuesday (May 29, 2018)

After morning yoga and breakfast, pick your adventure for the day, such as another surf lesson, an excursion to one of the many hidden beaches in the area, or some time on the water. Regroup in the early afternoon to visit Traverse Journeys’ community partner, Barrio Planta Project.

Enjoy a semi-structured afternoon of yoga with the kids, art project, and time for some play and English and Spanish practice while learning about the importance of the non-profit project as a secondary education source for the San Juan del Sur community. Back at the villa, enjoy a well-deserved yoga session and healthy dinner.

Day 4: Wednesday (May 30, 2018)

After morning yoga and breakfast, use your free time for a hike, some surfing, or more R and R on the beach. Consider taking one of Angelena's optional workshops, Acro yoga or Thai massage basics. You could also head to town to check out a local art space, take a chocolate-making class, or get a massage. Regroup later to catch the sunset before a long evening yoga session and a well-earned meal.

Day 5: Thursday (May 31, 2018)

Follow an invigorating morning yoga session with your healthy Nicaraguan breakfast. Now that you have gotten to know San Juan del Sur and your fellow yoga travelers, pick your adventures for the day. Consider a private yoga session, a massage in town, or more R and R by the beach.

Join for an optional excursion to Hermosa Beach for a relaxing afternoon and spectacular sunset. Regroup after for special farewell dinner and time in the evening for reflection and socialization with your new friends.

Day 6: Friday (April 1, 2018)

Join in a short pre-travel yoga session that will get you stretched and zenned for your going home plans. Breakfast will be available extra early so that you will have time to pack up and prepare for five to six hours between leaving San Juan del Sur and your afternoon flight out in Managua.

The transfers will take people to the airport in groups according to their departure time, with the last group leaving by 12:00 p.m.

Included excursions

On day three, you will experience the work of Barrio Planta Project where you will spend time with kids doing yoga, play, an art project, and practicing English and Spanish.

Instructors

Angelena Stokes-Wickersham
Angelena’s love for yoga began a decade ago when she started it as away to stretch her body and support her active lifestyle of hiking and surfing in Hawaii, where she grew up. Over the years, yoga became a healing practice where Angelena found she was able to find space for herself, listen to her body’s needs and stay present through constant change. Angelena’s classes focus heavily on alignment, breath technique and self-awareness and often end with a short mindfulness meditation and singing bowls.
Adam Meringolo
Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 (Yoga)
Adam began his yoga journey nearly a decade ago while on the verge of collapse, and it precipitated a complete transformation in his life. Through the brilliant guidance of Shanti Kelley and later Annie Carpenter, Adam learned to establish ground while embracing wisdom, humility, and devotion in his practice. Adam teaches a challenging yet grounded flow, rooted in alignment and sustainability. His goal is to guide students toward honesty, precision and understanding in their practice.
