Panama – Disconnect to Reconnect:

Luxury Yoga + Surf+ Fitness Retreat

January 18-25, 2020

Sansara has created a rare and special place for the wellness inspired traveler to retreat. Your retreat stay will be a unique opportunity to breathe, unwind, tune into yourself, discover your current needs and desires, be inspired and take time to become the best version of you. Practice yoga everyday, learn to surf if you like, eat delicious food, explore the untamed jungle and connect with like-minded souls. Retreat to Panama and spend some time in an untouched, tropical oasis that promises to leave you feeling rested, rejuvenated and replenished.


Optional world class surf school in the pristine waters of Cambutal; certified surf instructors that are highly trained and motivated to help you, focusing on the fundamentals of surfing, starting from scratch, and guiding you to quick progression and surfing green waves in no time! Sansara is located in an area that is not prevalent to tourism- horseback riding, boat rides, local culture and hikes are available.

I attended my first ever yoga retreat with Melissa this year and would recommend Gypset Yoga Retreats to anyone interested in a retreat that makes one feel welcome, strong and nourished. Melissa put together a retreat that allowed everyone to participate in what worked best for them, with healthy, delicious food options, in a community setting in which I made new, lifelong, friends. Whether this may be your first retreat or you are looking for something new, give Gypset a try – you won’t regret it! Amber V. Minneapolis, MN
