A Yoga & 5Rhythms® Retreat to PANAMA

December 2nd-8th 2018

Join Ariel Karass & I in the paradise of Panama for a post-Thanksgiving Yoga, 5R & Surf detox and recharge retreat. Close out 2018 with wholeness, wellness, and lightness.

Where: Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort

When: December 2nd-8th, 2018

Cost: Prices start at $1900

Expect daily morning meditation followed by vinyasa yoga class. In the evening we will alternate between 5Rhythms® and restorative/yin practices. Three organic & healthy meals are served each full day of the retreat. The afternoons will serve as time to adventure and explore: surf, hike, kayak, bike, snorkel, stand up paddle, or just straight chill with a session at the spa or time in the pool.

Panama City is only a 5.5hr direct flight away from NYC. To get there, book a flight to Panama City Tocumen (PTY). We recommend arriving one day early to explore the city and settle in, but you can also take a redeye and arrive early on the first day. Complimentary transportation occurs from the Casco Viejo district in Panama City. A shuttle will bring everyone back to Panama City on the final day. Plan to depart that evening, or stay a night in the city and leave the following morning.

All prices are per person and include all meals, accommodations, one group surf lesson, yoga & 5R® at Sansara, as well as shuttle from the city to the resort. Excursions, alcohol, airfare, and hotel stay in Panama City are not included.

This is the perfect time to prepare for the transition of the end of the year and the journey that lies ahead.


Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort is comprised of specialized facilities including oceanfront accommodations, an open-air yoga room, onsite spa and organic restaurant, surf lessons and rentals, complimentary bicycles, guided tours, ocean front saltwater pool, and much more.
