The location: Ostional
In the small fishing village of Ostional, by the Pacific Ocean, you will enjoy an exotic environment with wild animals like sea turtles and monkeys. The village life in Ostional is very friendly and relaxed, all in harmony with the nature. In Ostional there are no fancy hotels or busy bars and the locals run the majority of the tourist’s activities which makes them of significant importance for your stay. Ostional Yoga retreat will not only bring you yoga on the mat it will also bring you spectacular yogic experiences off the yoga mat.
The village is one of the most beautiful spots in the world. Be informed though, that sometimes there is no electricity or water. The It’s Yoga Nicaragua staff is well known in the village and our local friends are going to do our best to see to it that you have every thing you need to be happy, safe and comfortable. You will return home after an enriching life experience from your visit in Ostional. There are not many places like this on the planet!
In Ostional we will practice yoga on a wooden yoga deck fronting the Pacific ocean. Our yoga rancho is located on the south end of the beach. At the yoga rancho you will find all facilities along with hammocks and chairs to relax and chill.
Your package includes 2-4 beds occupancy with private bath. The lodge is simple but very nice and located close to the yoga rancho on Ostional beach.
Single occupancy is also available.
While spending your time with us you will also learn about food and nutrition. We believe in a holistic approach to the yogic lifestyle where the food plays an important part. In Nicaragua you can find a wide variety of exotic fruits you might never have seen before. You can also find herbs, some with medicinal qualities, and many vegetables typical for tropical countries. During your stay you will enjoy home made, locally grown organic fresh food. Most people who visit us are vegetarians but we do have an abundance of fresh fish for those who enjoy a grilled fish for dinner.
First Breakfast: Tea before morning practice.
Second Breakfast:Nicaraguan (Rice and Beans) “Gallo Pinto” with a yogic touch.
Lunch: Fresh, organic locally grown vegetarian or vegan food.
Dinner: Fresh, organic locally grown vegetarian or vegan food and for those who eat fish we often have grilled fish in the evening.
Depending on the interest in the group we go hiking in the forest and we go on boat trips to other beaches or trips to San Juan del Sur. Contact us if you want to know more about special activities outside the yoga teacher training program.
Wen you enroll with us you will also participate in a selfless service project during you stay. We bring learning material to the local school as well as helping out with different tasks depending on the need. We also assist Paso Pasifico in their work with saving the sea turtles. Ask us for more information what is on the agenda for April.
