Healthy Living with Miriam

* The holistic all-inclusive vacation you do not want to miss *

7 nights / 3rd - 10th November 2018

How about going on vacation and feeling like a million bucks during and after the break?


Join Miriam RM, Health and Lifestyle Coach and co-owner of Apoyo Lodge, for a week of relaxation, yoga, nourishing plant-based food, healthy habits workshops and other fun activities in and around the stunning Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua.

This retreat is the perfect setting for those who want to take a break from a busy lifestyle, reboot their body, reconnect with their inner selves, learn how to jump start or sustain a healthy lifestyle, all while being surrounded by a tropical dry forest and the pristine and healing waters of the beautiful crater lagoon.

There is space for couples, friends and single travellers of all ages. Whether you prefer to stay still or go out seeking adventure, there is something for everybody. This is a healthy, "feel good", all-inclusive vacation that gives you the opportunity to experience new things: from learning about plant-based nutrition to taking a peek inside an active volcano and exploring Las Isletas in Lake Nicaragua by SUP. It is also an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who, like you, care for the wellbeing of humans, animals and the planet.

Miriam stumbled upon veganism by chance almost 6 years ago, and once she started questioning her food choices, she wasn't able to stop questioning her whole life choices. She left a very successful and stressful career in aviation behind (together with some very poor life habits and some disastrous relationships) and embarked on a personal journey to discover some life purpose and reconnect with Mother Nature.

Fast forward four years and you find a certified Health and Lifestyle Coach, who is 37lbs lighter and has won the battle to many health issues with a balanced and delicious diet, enjoying a lifestyle free of cruelty and respectful to all earthlings and the planet. After living in 5 countries across 3 continents, Miriam now dedicates her time and efforts to help people all over the globe achieve their personal health and lifestyle goals in a sustainable manner through her one-on-one coaching, workshops and retreats: Spring Detox Camp and Healthy Living with Miriam.

In 2016, together with her good friend and business partner Maribel, Miriam opened Apoyo Lodge, a health and wellness boutique eco-hotel, and Nicaragua's first 100% vegan resort. Apoyo Lodge was created as a sacred space where humans, animals and Mother Earth can thrive in harmony, and to bring healthier plant based options to the Central American scene. Miriam lives full time at Apoyo Lodge with her partner Manuel, her step-daughter Yahoska, and a bunch of rescued animals. 



An agent of change. In the midst of a very chaotic yet lucrative, successful yet stressful career in travel nursing: life came to a screeching halt for Joanna. Something so painful and downright scary made her slow down. Way down. Earth-shattering news that had her questioning every corner and detail of her life, especially its authenticity. This external and internal struggle led Joanna directly to her yoga mat, where she had previously learned how to let go, find and bring light into difficult situations such as depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, the constant need and obsession for perfection, "failed" relationships, to name a few. 

Yoga has impacted Joanna in an infinite amount of ways and what began 6 years ago with the intent of becoming physically strong, later became an unexpected, life-changing, spiritual journey and now a way of life. With the support, encouragement, and guidance of her mentors, Joanna took the opportunity to complete a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Ubud (Bali, Indonesia) with Zuna Yoga. The Zuna Yoga philosophy and methodology of asana, Pranayama, meditation, and Ayurveda have led Joanna to the discovery of the most authentic version of herself.  She now assists others in discovering their most authentic and auspicious version of themselves. 

Joanna has been working as a holistic nurse coach by creatively & scientifically designing individualized health and wellness routines for her private clients. This method is proven to be a much more cost-effective soul-ution, rather than the typical treatment of diseases such as osteoarthritis, cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even depression. Joanna is an advocate for cultivating wellness from the inside out, as she believes it is the future of healthcare and the world we live in.
