I just got back from a wonderful stay at Equilibrio Yoga Art Nature Retreat. It combines modern conveniences with a truly out in the selva feel. The casitas have large screened openings on 3 sides for a view of the native birds, plants, and butterflies while also furnishing a modern, enclosed bathroom and dressing room. The totally private open air shower has hot water. The "Hangatorium" available for gatherings and meals is truly unique with a high conical ceiling of thatch. There are guitars and drums for those so inclined as well as a high stage for groups wishing for drama. A yoga floor is on this lush property for early morning yoga as well as other times of the day. I participated in a beach yoga session on the fishing beach where 3 locals also joined in. Lying on the warm sand was truly relaxing. Other sessions were held on the nearby beach where the sunsets were spectacular. Horseback riding and massages are other activities offered. Canoes and kayaks are also available for another access to the beach. The meals were all delicious, and there was plenty of safe drinking water and refrescos (fruit drinks). For those interested in Nicaraguan culture, the nearby village is a delight to visit with many friendly, family oriented people. Since I was involved in a service trip, we had ample opportunity to meet villagers and help furnish books for their library, build gardens, build solar ovens, help with school music and craft projects, and teach English. However, I could also see my husband and I going there for a quiet retreat to enjoy the rainforest surroundings and the beach. After meeting the villagers and their beautiful children, I would also still want to do something of use to them. The selection between family and friends is difficult, as my husband and I went with part of our family as well as some friends.
