THE FINAL RETREAT
YOGA + ADVENTURE + LOCAL CONNECTIONS
July 1-7, 2023
Joined by Jordan Ashley of Souljourn Yoga , Stacey Clark and Alma Retreats led the last of more than 20 life-changing retreats down in Nicaragua - a week of yin and yang, movement and meditation, social change, and life altering adventure in some of the most incredible places in Nicaragua.
Starting at the ocean and immersed in nature at Verdad Nicaragua, we spent time on our mats, days connecting around the pool and at the beach, exploring and enjoying Nicaragua's pacific coast and magical sunsets, with an afternoon spent at and supporting Fundación Proyecto Barrio la Planta and Souljourn's efforts.
From there, we headed to the center of the country to the colorful artisanal town of Granada, taking in the cobblestone streets, brightly colored buildings and houses, incredible churches scattered around the lively city, food and art, viewing the work from local artists and learning more about the projects of Casa Tres Mundos.
The last stop of our adventure was coffee country - where it all started over 12 years ago- , where we hopped into pick-up trucks, journeyed through tobacco plantations, hiked through the lush and breathtaking highlands, arriving at a local family’s home for a tortilla making lesson, tasting cups of coffee straight from the source - an experience that many people who travel to Nicaragua never get and those who join for a retreat with Alma Retreats, never forget .
Thank you to those who were part of this transformative and epic final retreat.
