Yoga, Fitness & Adventure Retreat
Istmo Retreat Center
San Carlos, Panama
November 30 - December 6, 2019
Escape to Panama for an equal parts relaxing and invigorating week of yoga, fitness, wilderness exploration, culture and adventure in one of the country’s undiscovered gems. Nestled in the jungle just steps away from a secluded beach, Istmo retreat Southwest of Panama City is designed to help you reset. Comfortable accommodations nestled among the wildlife, beautiful scenery and vegetation outside your doorstep - a perfect opportunity to sit in your hammock, read a book and really reset. This part of Panama offers the best of the beach and the jungle with options for sun & ocean lovers, hikers and culture seekers.
If you’re new to us, you should know that we’re not your traditional yoga retreat.
We’re here to ignite positive shifts in your life.
We’re here to challenge you to look at how you show up for yourself in your life and remind you of your power.
We’re about motivating your personal growth with a supportive tribe of open-hearted people who really see you.
We’re here to connect and challenge your body and mind so you go home sharper, stronger, calmer and more connected to your soul.
We’re here to remind you to live life YOUR way.
You’ll discover potential you didn’t know you had. You’ll make life-long connections with new friends and you’ll go home with a renewed belief in yourself.
If you’re at a pivotal moment in your life, processing a new direction, feeling stuck
or just need a FUN and meaningful moment to refill your cup, we invite you to read on and dive in.
Join a tribe that celebrates your uniqueness, lifts you up and encourages you to be you and do you, but also to be your best! You deserve to live life in a way that lights you up, but happiness is an inside job. SoulTribe Adventures help you reconnect to your inner power by instantly making you part of a tribe of people who gets you, supports you through every challenge and brings a new meaning to the word FUN!
We work hard, play hard and rest hard. We start to break through patterns that have kept us from our full potential all while building real friendships for life.
You’ll learn what it means to show up for yourself and for others, what it means to dig deep, and get closer to the inner confidence you find when you learn to really slow down and listen to your heart and your gut. Most importantly, you’ll come home transformed in some way.
We offer a Vinyasa Yoga class every morning, a daily Metabolic Effect workout (30 minute HIIT workouts at your own pace), and we wind down with restorative & yin yoga and guided meditations.
Thrilling adventures that encourage you to face fears and take you from “omg I’m not sure I can” to “holy $&*t I CAN AND I DID!!”
Inversion workshops where you learn to stand on your head & hands, build strength and confidence and learn to see things from a different perspective (literally)
Group circles and discussions that make you feel part of something, help you dig deeper and look at the way you’re showing up in different areas of your life
Yoga Nidra (guided meditations also referred to as “yogic sleep”) to bring you to deep states of mental and physical relaxation
Games & activities to encourage you to rediscover the kid in yourself and remember what it’s like to be at ease in your body and soul
Time to wind down quietly on your own, enjoy massages and spa services or connect one-on-one with incredible people you will feel proud to call your friends
You are welcome to do as much or as little as you like - at SoulTribe, the motto is “you to you.”

Have you had an interest in a yoga or fitness retreat but didn’t want to sit in silence for a week or show up and feel out of place physically?
Have no fear! Our yoga and fitness classes are challenging to all levels and we meet you where you are in your practice and physical abilities. Nathania loves to make yoga playful and accessible no matter how much or how little experience you have. Gary’s workouts are designed for all levels of fitness as well. He likes to say that his grandmother and an Olympic athlete could both get a good workout. If you want to dabble in the world of mindfulness and meditation, without being TOO serious about it, we've got you.
Do you feel like you need to put down your phone for a bit and disconnect with other amazing humans and reconnect with yourself mentally, spiritually and physically?
Let’s get out of the rat race and feel alive again all while making new friends, recharge our batteries, and create some new memories that will last forever!
Are you a little bit adventurous and that little voice inside is urging you to “get out and flex your holy sh!t muscles”?
We are a perfect fit if you’ve been looking for new ways to challenge yourself mentally and physically in a safe and encouraging environment. The best cure for inaction is to put yourself in uncomfortable situations and be ok with that. Our adventures span the realm of cave drop-ins of 300ft in Belize to zip lining on the longest line in Mexico to jumping from a 50ft pendulum swing. Regardless, we will meet you where you are and help you get to the next level in whatever area you’ve been stuck.
Ready to see how you stand in your own way so you can move through that and start living the life you deserve?
All you need to be is open to having a new experience and connecting deeply with others from all over the world. You can go as deep into reflection as you want, or keep it casual. If you’re feeling stuck or looking for answers, this is the perfect opportunity dive in.
Are you a little excited and nervous about doing something like this?
Good! That’s exactly what we want you to feel. From this place of fear and excitement, magic happens! You’re not alone. See what others have said just below. Know that we are going to do everything we can to make sure you have a great experience. All you need to do is show up with an open mind!
