If you answered YES to any of these questions then, PRESS Pause and take time out for yourself, and attend this retreat for Balanced and Healthy Living

Mastering life while staying healthy and balanced is AN ADVENTURE.

Join us for an exciting week nestled in the jungle and steps away from a secluded tropical beach in panoramic Playa Grande, Panama. There is no better place for you to be. Our 7 Day/6 Night retreat vacation will challenge and inspire you.

At the retreat you’ll experience mind and heart shifts as you discover how to take the “Quantum Leap” to transform your life and make it better than just “good enough!” Join Betty Franklin, Mental Fitness and Wellness Specialist, as she delivers her teachings and shares her knowledge through activities and conversations that are enlightening, thought-provoking and fun. Discover you … and find clarity, as you strategize your actions and learn to optimize your environments. You will leave with an encouraged heart, clear mind and strengthened stamina.

But it’s not all learning … yoga is available, to calm and focus your mind while strengthening and toning your muscles; spend time exploring the exotic parts of Panama which lie off the beaten track: glide around a tropical mountain lagoon on your stand up paddle board; visit an Indigenous Village; hike through a cloud forest; visit a colorful and vibrant local market; and spend time on the beach or lying in a hammock reading your favorite book.

The retreat is at the beautiful Istmo Retreat Center in tranquil oasis Playa Grande, Panama.  Istmo Retreat Center is located 90 minutes outside of Panama City and 10 minutes away from Coronado.
