Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Eric Kolesar from Higher Living Now

6 NIGHTS / 28th October - 3rd November 2018

Experience a piece of heaven on earth at Apoyo Lodge, a luxury boutique resort and spa tucked away on the shore of Nicaragua’s Laguna de Apoyo. This picturesque lake conceals a volcano that imploded and filled with mineral-rich water millions of years ago. The tranquil setting serves as the ideal backdrop for a retreat uniquely designed to bring your body, mind and spirit into alignment. 

You’ll wake up in a beautiful lakefront lodge and walk a few steps to the outdoor yoga studio overlooking the water. After a healthy gourmet breakfast, enjoy activities like swimming, hiking or reading in a hammock. Each day will have a unique focus designed to overcome common obstacles in our lives through workshops, yoga practice, guided meditation and plenty of time for both socializing and quiet introspection. There will be a day trip to the historic and extremely photogenic town of Granada, and an optional evening trip to an active volcano!

You’ll walk away rejuvenated, with a usable set of tools you can use every day to live with greater purpose and presence. As with all Higher Living Now retreats we use a blend of ancient teachings and modern science to raise our consciousness to live at a higher vibration.

With over 15 years experience in the wellness industry, Eric is a 400-hour certified yoga instructor, life coach, and Reiki Master.
