Relax and Renew at Santa Catalina Retreats, Panama


Tranquil.  Remote. Simple.  Peaceful.  These are the perfect ways to describe a fantastic and perfect yoga, surf and wellness retreat.  Where is such a place that can meet all these criteria?  If you were imagining a quiet surfing town on the Pacific coast of Panama, you’re right.  Santa Catalina Retreats specializes in soothing the mind and bringing the calming ocean to your front porch.  They offer many different types of yoga including Hatha, Ashtanga, Integrated Vinyasa and slow flow Vinyasa. You don’t need to be a pro at yoga or even a beginner.  Santa Catalina Retreats welcomes all who are willing to learn and take the first step of a healthier lifestyle.

The Santa Catalina Retreat

As anybody whom has visited the ocean can tell you, simply focusing your mind on the waves is a great way to reduce stress and is a great way to exercise.  The remoteness of Santa Catalina follows this philosophy perfectly.   The beach and retreat has no noisy vacationers nearby to disrupt your peace and concentration or party-goers being a nuisance. What it offers is a tranquil escape to recharge the soul through yoga, surfing, massage and eating healthy.

To truly embrace the natural beauty of Santa Catalina and have a unique experience, Santa Catalina Retreats often combine yoga classes at the beach, in a tranquil open-air tree top studio, and at a breathtaking ocean view yoga deck.

Yoga isn’t the only specialty of this unique resort.  If you want to give your surfing skills a try, they also have surfing classes.  Combining yoga with surfing is a great way to enhance and build your core-strength, and offer you the time and space to be truly present and mindful.  On top of this, Santa Catalina Retreats also gives you the opportunity to get out and explore the area.  They offer complimentary bikes, kayaks, paddle boards and snorkels to give you the chance to explore the area in any way imaginable.  Want to see the area by boat?  White sand beaches are only a boat ride away.
