Retreats offer a time to ground down and reinvigorate the senses. Adventures take us to new places, stir up our curiosity and wonder, and nourish our feelings of gratitude. As we ground our feet in new experiences we find presence among the ever changing nature of beautiful endings and exciting beginnings.
Join us in the tucked away paradise of El Paredon, Guatemala for 5 nights, 6 days as we immerse ourselves in daily surf, yoga and adventure.

On this retreat, Jenny and Milan will lead you through all the yoga and meditation to move your body and feed your soul.

Jenny believes in practicing what feels good in your body and recognizing that there isn’t one right way to do things that works for everyone. She strives to create an inclusive environment in her classes and with clients, so that everyone knows, YES yoga is for you too. In group classes she focus heavily on foundation and alignment to safely prepare you for more challenging postures later on. Jenny will encourage you to turn inwards, draw intentionality into your practice and, with kind attention, recognize your strength both physically and mentally in each moment.
Milan’s classes are all levels and playful. Her goal is to empower her students to let their bodies surprise them with their inherent strength, flexibility, and resilience. Her Vinyasa classes are structured around an energetic flow that includes several minutes of warm up, sun salutations, core work, balancing postures, backbends, arm balances, inversions, and hip openers. Students are encouraged to focus on their breath and play on their edge. Students leave these classes energized and up beat.
Milan’s restorative classes are curated to her students needs. They generally incorporate deep hip openers and invite opportunities for deep pauses. With stillness, we are able to dive deeper into our minds and find clarity and ease both physically and mentally. Ultimately, students are able to achieve a state of deep relaxation, allowing them to sleep soundly.
