Over 9 days and 8 nights, soak in Panama City's historic district, Casco Viejo, learn to surf, ride a horse on the beach, stand-up paddleboard, & bike and explore your way through rural Panama - or skip all the above and chillax pool-side and line up plenty of spa services! - at Sansara Yoga + Surf, a luxury wellness resort on the Pacific Ocean 

WHAT'S INCLUDED
...a lot! 

LODGING

We'll stay in luxurious oceanfront, ocean-view, and garden-view cabanas and suites. All of Sansara's accommodations were designed to blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings of the resort grounds, thoughtfully fusing traditional, minimalist, and tropical design while featuring stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Many rooms have a private patio and all are just steps away from the warm and inviting waters of the Pacific Ocean. 

A LOT OF YOGA

 

We'll have ocean-side yoga classes every morning, afternoon, and evening by your favorite Thrive teachers, with special workshops on the physical and non-physical aspects of yoga to help you deepen your practice and special classes like Yin & Yoga Nidra sprinkled in. Classes every morning and afternoon will reflect a diversity of all your faves from the Thrive schedule, and every evening we'll do a wind-down Yin. Sansara provides yoga mats, blocks, blankets, and straps for our practices.

NOURISHMENT

Sansara's chefs craft locally sourced ingredients into vibrant, nutritious, unforgettable meals. Their fruits, vegetables, and eggs are farm-to-table, provided by independent farmers in and around Cambutal, and their fish is sea-to-table, caught daily from just outside Sansara's private bay. We'll enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner in their oceanfront restaurant, The Buddha Bar, and Sansara also has snacks, smoothies, fresh juices, house-made kombucha, and custom cocktails and mocktails available for purchase every day. Sansara accommodates a wide variety of diets, including vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, omnivore, and gluten-free, among other special dietary concerns and allergies. 

COMMUNITY. BEACH TIME. YOU TIME. SURF TIME. 

 

Lounge by the beach. Learn to surf. Read by the pool. Sleep in. Get a massage. Eat well. Go horseback riding on the beach. Do a lot of yoga. Hike through a jungle, to a waterfall! Go fishing. Stand-up paddleboard. Leisurely bike through rural Panama. All of Sansara's excursions have been managed and staffed in-house since Sansara's founding in 2013, which means these excursions are quality-controlled, consistently amazing experiences (i.e. very rare in the resort world!). And they also run their own in-house, world-class Surf School for all levels, especially total beginners, employing concepts from the yoga practice we all know and love to get us riding the waves. Naturally. [Excursions cost extra; learn more below] .

WE'RE ALL GOING.

From February 22 through March 2, we're taking the Thrive party to PANAMA. I wish we could bring the full Thrive teacher crew! But someone's got to stay and woman our shop. I'm stoked to bring two of our newer-to-Thrive teachers to Panama and reward them for being Thrive rockstars!
