New Year's Yoga Retreat in Popoyo, Nicaragua

DECEMBER 28, 2020 – JANUARY 1, 2021

2020 has been an intense year to say the least! Through the many challenges, we have remained open to growing and learning together. Now more than ever, we are longing for rejuvenating time with our beautiful School Yoga Institute Family! We can’t think of a better way to wrap up 2020 and step into 2021 than with an incredible SYI New Years Retreat!


Join us for 5 days, 4 nights at Magnific Rock, a slice of paradise in Popoyo with expansive views of the coastal Pacific Ocean. Together, we will begin 2021 with gratitude, reflection, inspiration and intention. This New Years retreat is designed to nourish, love, and support you from the inside out. We will honor our bodies with healthy conscious meals, unite our hearts with yoga, connect through sacred ceremony, and settle our minds with meditation.


Whether relaxing for you means reading by the pool, walking on the warm sand, drinking fresh juices and coconuts, surfing Pacific Ocean waves, or waking up slowly to the sound of the ocean, the beautiful Magnific Rock Retreat Center offers an unparalleled experience in the perfect location.

Concerned about Covid-19?

We know that health and safety are at the forefront of people’s minds right now. We are monitoring the situation closely and working with locals in Nicaragua to stay informed! As of now, the boarders in Nicaragua are open. Each attendee will need to provide a negative Covid test (testing is now free and available all over). The owner of Magnific Rock is confident that it should be no problem to enter the country and gather for this incredible retreat! All of the community spaces at Magnific Rock are open air with the exception of the bedrooms. We are excited that the weather in Popoyo is beautiful this time of year and will allow us to spend much of our day in the outdoors, soaking up sunshine and breathing fresh air!
