Experience  authentic connection to yourself, community and the natural world in the lush coastal beauty of Nicaragua.

with Dayna Seraye & friends

Ready for an adventure of heart, soul & nature?

Immerse in practice and play on this 7 day retreat in the bounty of nature. Together, we will shed our skins to experience deep healing, connection and nourishment. In the spirit of sacred reciprocity, we will give back to the land and local community through meaningful seva (service) projects.  

Come as you are, and be prepared to
soften into who you really are.

De-stress,  renew, and enliven yourself with...

Integrative Yoga 

Start each morning with a invigorating yoga journey integrating asana, kriya, pranayama, mantra, meditation and free movement. Explore yoga as a state of consciousness we take with us into our day.

Authentic Relating 

Attune to yourself as you build trustworthy, empowering, nourishing connections with others through the practices of authentic relating. Learn communication skills that will serve you deeply in your life. 

Seva & Culture

Give back to the local community and the land through meaningful service projects, including supporting the baby turtle sanctuary, working with the local village school and cleaning up the beaches.

What's so life-changing about a yoga adventure, anyway? 

Over the years, we've journeyed to Costa Rica, Bali, Peru and India offering incredible retreats of transformation and inspiration. We've perfected the balance of an ample amount of relaxation and downtime, with experiences that bring profound growth and expansion. In the spirit of Hanuman (the monkey superhero whose famous leap gave the splits pose it's name), we explore generosity, devotion and being in service as a way of life.  

For the first time ever, we feel called to adventure to Nicaragua!

This retreat will support you to reset and grow on all levels - body, heart, mind and soul. 

Why Nicaragua?

Similar to Costa Rica fifty years ago (before widespread development and popularity), Nicaragua is a natural paradise of coastal forest and pristine beaches. Nicaragua is considered one of the safest countries in Latin America, and the locals are welcoming and friendly to visitors. 

We will enjoy the gorgeous, secluded beach and breathtaking views from our hilltop retreat center, where we will practice everyday and nourish ourselves in nature and community.

Verdad Nicaragua Retreat Center

On the Pacific side of Nicaragua, Verdad is situated on the hillside overlooking the beautiful sandy beach of The Costa Dulce Surfside Community at Playa Escameca, which is just north of Costa Rica.

At Verdad, we will experience the real Nicaragua: the open and generous people as well as the magical setting. Located in a tropical dry forest, we will be surrounded by a plethora of wildlife, including howler monkeys,  lizards of all shapes and sizes, four species of sea turtles (that often come lay their eggs on the beach), as well as a wide array of birds that make for a bird watchers' paradise.

Fresh, Local Cuisine

Be prepared to enjoy healthy, delicious food all week long, prepared onsite with local, fresh ingredients. We will enjoy freshly picked greens and herbs from the garden, produce from the local farmer’s market, seafood from the shores of the beach below us, and fresh eggs and homemade yogurt from local suppliers. 

Meals will be enjoyed in the beautiful dining area overlooking the ocean, or poolside. Fresh fruit, juices, tea and Nicaraguan coffee will be available all day.

Thank you is my mantra for this experience.

Hanuman Adventures was one of the most transformative journeys of my life. I laughed. I cried. I broke down. I broke through…and I learned about the beautiful balancing act of self-care and sacred service. The law of reciprocity is potent. Love happened… Thank you is my mantra for this experience. I will never be the same. – S.S.

To describe it in one word...AWESOME!

One of the highlights for me were going to see the underprivileged children at the school were we served them. It was an absolute pleasure to meet them all. The whole adventure was transformative and life-changing. To describe it in one word...awesome. - C.R.

I'm so taken by how kind everyone is...

I've learned so much that has opened my mind to more possibilities, both for myself and for the world around me. I'm so taken by how kind everyone is, and having a sense of community in a way that I wasn't feeling before I came here was really special. - M.H.
