Marimbea Music Retreat

In November 2018 we launched our first  Marimbea Music Retreat with two talented maestros of Marimba, the typical music from the Pacific coast, Adrian Sabogal and Ali Cauma.

As part of Prana's social commitment to the local communtity, we decided to use funds from the profits of ticket sales to donate locally made instruments to the musical groups of both Nuqui and Termales, which were presented in a free concert held at the Prana Property, a magical experience which resurected the passion of Music in this small Pacific coast community.  The weekend was filled long rehersals and spontaneous jam sessions, ceremonial shots of viche and special moments of strangers joinging through the love of music.

I recently returned from a yoga retreat with Prana Pacifico and everything about it was truly amazing! The location is unreal...the perfect place to disconnect from day-to-day life and reconnect with yourself, with nature, and with amazing people. Linsey was a fantastic host! Her enthusiasm for her work is contagious and her culinary creations are out of this world! I feel truly grateful for the time that I spent there, the people that I spent it with, and the amazing beauty that I experienced. You will not be disappointed!

It is a magical place that connects with emotions, the food is incredible, it is an experience full of introspection, the nature of the forest mixes with the sea, making a set of sounds and landscapes that can be appreciated from the rustic house on high of the island. Really highly recommended for those who want to meditate, do yoga, rest or any activity that leads to finding oneself.

Santosha - The Joy of Living

This retreat was our first alliance with the talented Paula Restrepo from Lila Yoga community, offering the theme of Santosha, or “complete contentment” as translated from ancient Sanskrit.

Our participants were certainly content to be spending 3 magical days with us in Pacific Coast Paradise with daily practice and ceremony including morning nasal cleanses, yoga and meditation and a mala making workshop. We closed the retreat by using our malas to perform a meditation of 108 oms and a gratitude circle where we gave thanks for all that we had shared and learnt during our sacred time together.

Holy Humpback Whale Watching Retreat

In August, our tribe flocked to the Pacific with our dear friend and experienced Prana instructor, Saskia Van Erven to see the majestic humpback whales as they cruised around the warm waters to mate and give birth.

We were blessed with wonderful whale encounters; tale whacking, flipper flopping and mama and baby whale breaching right in front of our boat, which was dwarfed by the enormity of these beautiful and playful creatures. Throw in yoga twice a day, mud masks at Termales hot springs, tribal face painting and a spontaneous jungle jam sesh in our closing ceremony and you get the jist of our awesome August Retreat.

Prana Pacifico shared with us peace, tranquility, joy, creativity, it was a very nice experience, an experience where we met ourselves, with nature and with all the people that came.

If you want to meet with yourself, disconnect a little bit from the city, from the problems, from the every day chores, this is a perfect place. There is a lot of nature to see, the place is magical and a great adventure awaits you.
Javier Orellana España
"It is an unforgettable experience, it is an incredible environment, also with whales that was one of the dreams of my life, to see a whale up close. It has been 4 intense days but totally relaxing with a lovely people, and again I have felt the skin again, we have all felt very close without bothering us, it has been a very special experience"

Connecting with the Elements Yoga Retreat

After her very sucessful 7-day chakra aligning retreat, Saskia Van Erven lead her second Prana retreat which focused on the elements of water, air, fire and earth and mother nature certainly put on a show!

Despite earth shaking storms at night, we were blessed with sunny days to enjoy the magic of our practice in paradise.

“ It was an amazing experience! The yoga instructor was really good, I had no experience of yoga before, but she guided me through the practice and showed me modifications based on my comfort and ability. The atmosphere was excellent, so much nature and no internet really helped to connect with the group and your own energy and soul. The food was great and all the staff were so kind and polite. I loved the experience and would definitely recommend it.”

Chakra Aligning Retreat

During the Easter celebrations of Semana Santa, Prana Pacifico launched it’s first retreat with Saskia Van Erven's wholistic Chakra Aligning Retreat.

Each of the 7 days was dedicated to one of the Chakras, starting at the root and finishing at the crown. The program also incorporated the elements and colours associated with each Chakra and the daily activities, ceremonies and meals complimented the theme to offer a holistic  transformation.  

Kai Rowe USA

"Going on the retreat with Prana Pacifico is an experience I will never forget.  From the amazing food, to the location in paradise--it couldn't have been better.  After the retreat, I felt more in touch with my yoga practice than I've ever felt in my life! Physically I changed: I gained flexibility and strength. Mentally I changed: I felt more alive, filled with positivity, and I was able to fully relax and be in the moment.  Spiritually I grew so much: I felt myself connect more with the Earth, the new people, and most importantly--  with my true self."

Shannon Christner USA

Joining Prana Pacifico Retreats was like being dropped into a magical paradise. I constantly felt safe, loved and cushioned with the beauty that surrounded us by the jungle and our collective happiness. You will not regret such an incredible experience as this. 

Zach Zumpano USA

They led a truly amazing, life changing trip. Every detail - meals, travel planning and side trips, the Yoga practice - was exceptional. Equally important, the people running the show are so positive, gracious, fun, and hospitable, they make it impossible not to have a great time. I can't imagine a better way to spend a week... I didn't want it to end! 

Aafke Maarleveld Holland

“The most loving people took care of us so we could have an unforgettable experience. Everything was just perfect, the location, the accommodation, the food, the music, the yoga and last but not least, the great atmosphere so you can truly relax, laugh, enjoy. As soon a I get the chance, I would go again, without a doubt”.
