Start your New Year off vibin’ high! Join Exhale Yoga Retreats for uplifting yoga, positive people, deep conversations, fun adventures, delicious food, hammock time and surfing. 
 
This is our 4th annual retreat in Nicaragua and we’re doing something special! We invited two of our favourite DJ’s to play the soundtrack to this epic experience in paradise.
 
DJ Sol Rising will be playing live during Rachel Wainwright and Ariel Swan's yoga sessions, and Marlon J English will DJ the notorious Exhale Jungle Dances!
 
Ride the flow of the yoga classes to the rhythm of the music and the waves of the ocean, as you connect deeper to yourself and others.

This yoga retreat offers a variety of yoga classes, which will ride the rhythm of the experience. From energetic, strong moving flows that support strength and flexibility, to deep relaxation and meditation.

We mindfully plan each yoga class to build upon the other, deepening retreaters' yoga practices and helping them connect within.

Our yoga classes are suitable for all levels and offer modifications and assists. We strongly encourage beginner yogis to join us, as this is a wonderful opportunity to find the inspiration to begin a personal practice. For experienced yogi's, this is a great place to deepen your existing practice and continue to grow.

Destination

The first 2 nights and 1 full day of the retreat will be spent in the beautiful colonial town of Granada. This colourful town is a must see when visiting Nicaragua. We will be staying at the classic Hotel Granada. Mid morning on January 4th we will head to the beach paradise location of Playa Maderas. 

Maderas Village is a boutique resort located on a hillside in the jungle overlooking Maderas Beach surf Break. It’s only a 5-minute walk to the ocean where some of the best surfing waves roll-in. It’s a great setting to reflect, invigorate your creative juices, enjoy deep discussions, live in the moment and rediscover your true self. Both Maderas Village and Exhale Yoga Retreats are working together to provide the best possible experience for you to relax and fully enjoy life. It will be good vibes & good times!!

Ariel Swan motivates her students to push past their limited beliefs and discover new frontiers of mind and body. She encourages students to strive for their absolute best, yet she meets this motivation with patience and a true desire to help others reach their goals. Ariel has a gift for making each student feel like they are in a private lesson, while uniting her class and their individual energies together. Coming from a dancer and Pilates background she can lead the class through a challenging, sweaty core firing flow but still has the softness to drop into a grounding restorative yin class. Ariels favourite quote is “May your heart be bigger than any challenge you face” ~ Dhyan Vimal and she lives by this each day.
