As you may know by now, Jicaro Ecolodge is a big Yoga enthusiast and we offer daily yoga classes at our lodge. We love yoga so much and our location and property inspire such tranquility and peace that Adrienne Ward, owner of Big World Small Planet has chosen Jicaro as a venue for her world famous Yoga retreats and experiences.
On that note, 2016 will once again feature the Peter Sterios Retreat. Peter’s 5th annual retreat is designed to be a true one-of-a-kind experience.
Peter Sterios has been part of the American yoga community for over three decades and is an internationally recognized teacher based in San Luis Obispo, California. His popular video Gravity & Grace, was honored by Yoga Journal in their top 15 yoga DVDs of all time (2008). He is the creator of Manduka, a leading eco-yoga products company based in LA (1997). Peter is a writer, with articles appearing in Yoga Journal, Elephant Journal, Fit Yoga, and LA Yoga; an award winning green architect, specializing in retreat centers and yoga studios nationally and internationally; and co-founder of karmaNICA, a charitable organization for impoverished kids in western Nicaragua (www.karmanica.org). For the last three years, he was in a select group invited to teach yoga at the White House for Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity initiative. Peter’s teaching offers a unique insight to the evolving art of yoga, and his light-handed approach makes this accessible to any with a desire to learn.
This retreat week is designed to give you a taste of Granada’s city life with its colonial esthetic, interesting history and pedestrian-friendly streets as well as the beauty of an exquisite island surrounded by views of the stunning Mombacho Volcano.
What makes this retreat incredibly unique? During the week, Peter will be hosting the largest yoga class ever held in Nicaragua. The event will take place in the colonial city of Granada where our yoga group will stay and practice for the first two nights of the retreat. It’s an opportunity to be part of this historic occasion and to literally step into the culture and vibrancy of which Nicaragua has become recognized.
Continuing on throughout the week, we will travel by boat to Jicaro Ecolodge, an exclusive island which provides the perfect setting to delve deeper into your personal yoga practice while balancing time to relax & recharge. Sounds of the tranquil lake waters and surrounding nature literally soothe the mind and set the tone for a peaceful, soul-enriching stay on the island.
