Invati Nicaragua Give and Receive Yoga Retreat
Come experience Nicaragua like you have never experienced it before!
First 2020 Invati Yoga retreat is to Nicaragua. Tara, Kelly and Klara will be your guides for this special retreat of giving and receiving.
Klara has been to Monty’s Beach Lodge twice in the past 3 years. Both were service trips combined with yoga.
“For anyone craving an experience centered on the power of belief, values, and impact – this is it. You will be comfortable, well fed and entertained – but mostly your soul will be enriched. That’s more than a vacation. That’s life changing.”
Monty’s Beach Lodge is owned and operated by Donald Montgomery – a Canadian who has taken “volutourism” to a new level. The work he (and his guests) do to better the community there is phenomenal. We are so excited to be a part of service during this trip!
The resort itself is on some of the most pristine beaches ever seen – There are 2 yoga decks – surf and sand – horseback riding, volcano hikes, SUP, turtle hatchery (on site), beach volleyball, swimming pool… it’s going to be amazing – and FUN! Monty and his staff are FUN, laid back and kind…
The waves in front of the lodge are great for beginner and intermediate surfers. Even advanced surfers have a lot of fun here. Waves fluctuate year round and depending on tide, swell and wind. If you would like surf lessons, you can sign up upon your arrival. Boards are available at the camp so there is no need to bring one unless you prefer your own. Boat trips to the sand break (10-minute boat ride) are an additional cost and can be arranged when you arrive. At Monty’s, stay and play, and experience all the warmth of Nicaragua. That experience extends to working with local charities and development groups.
We have many volunteer opportunities for each of us to participate in. Volunteer sites include the English Language Centre/Community Centre Jiquilillo, the Soup kitchen in El Limonal for families at the Chinandega Garbage Dump, the Wildlife Conservation – Turtle Hatchery, the Villa Esperanza Housing Development in Jiquilillo, Community Recreation ‒ Field of Hope, Elementary Schools, Medical Clinic and Outreach for Jiquilillo and Surrounding Villages, and the Vocational School for Jiquilillo and Surrounding Villages.
There will not be any mandatory activities – guest will be welcome to participate in the community service as much or as little as they wish (generally we agree ahead of time how much and what project we want to “get involved” with doing our time there.)
Meals and Accommodations are included – they are modest but more than adequate. There are 3 meals a day served at the lodge. They are fresh and locally sourced with limited options. There are set meal times and the kitchen is closed between meals.
Tara, Kelly and Klara will co-teach Hatha, vinyasa, supported alignment, restorative, pranayama, meditation and chanting.
Depending on single, double, triple occupancy, prices range from $1500-$2000 Canadian plus tax for adults, $500 per child, for 7 days including food and money towards community projects. We will fund a meal at the ‘garbage dump’ community – it is a half day event and feeds a whole community. (flights not included)
Singles, couples, families, friends and children are welcome. We want to be completely inclusive for this give and receive experience.
