The shared desire to co-create a magical retreat experience, grounded by the intentional practices of yoga and meditation, has long been percolating in our hearts and our minds. As such, we are so very pleased to announce the first international retreat offering between Yoga with Joshua and Yoga with Adrianne!
We have dreamt up a very special and exclusive retreat that will take you far, far away from the cold Canadian winter to an archipelago of islands bathed by the soft, healing rays of the Caribbean sunshine. And we feel that there is no better place than the hidden paradise of Bocas Del Toro, located off the Northern Coast of Panama, to unwind, soothe and recalibrate. When the edges of life are feeling just a bit too much, a week of softening into the beauty of nature; into the sacred space of communal practice; and into the simplicity of present-moment awareness; can be just the life-affirming reminder we’ve been looking for...and often, the realignment that our bodies, minds, hearts and souls have been craving.
We will begin our days gathered together in the open-air yoga studio, gently awakening through a hatha-inspired asana practice and morning meditation. Whilst palm trees sway and jungle wildlife serenades us, we will work up an appetite before indulging in an exquisite array of fresh, local and organic breakfast foods to support the coming day of exploration and adventure.
Our afternoons will be filled with ample free time, allowing you to take advantage of the many options our home-away-from-home and natural locale have to offer. You can tailor your retreat experience to be one of adventure: take a surfing lesson or go snorkelling amongst the coral reefs; hop on a bike (or a horse!) and explore the area; enjoy a guided hike or zip through the jungle treetops on a zipline. Or if you are looking to reclaim some time and space for quiet renewal: sink into a hammock for a luxurious nap; immerse yourself in a book; commune with the nearby nesting leatherback sea turtles; or gather around the lap pool and chat with your new-found friends. The choice is yours, the options are endless.
Later in the afternoon we will dive into a yin-inspired yoga practice that will support and guide you toward a meaningful integration of your retreat experience. Our intention is to help you find ways to take the gifts and benefits of your practice into all the areas of your life.
Our days will culminate over a sumptuous buffet-style meal with options for omnivores, vegetarians and pescatarians alike. Bluff Beach Retreat takes immense pride in providing only the very best--and rest assured that the copious amounts of fresh, local produce and fruit (some of which is grown on-site at the Bluff Beach Retreat Farm!) will keep you feeling vibrantly renewed from the inside-out.
Your evenings are yours - wind down with some solo restorative yoga practice or snuggle up under your covers for some extra sweet slumber. Ahhhhhhhhh...
So...next winter, when the warmth and the sunshine are but a distant memory, give yourself permission and the gift of seeking out some peace and presence in Panama. There are miles of beach, warm tropical ocean waters and a unique yoga experience awaiting you.
Please do consider joining us!
Peace, light and love
Adrianne and Joshua
