El Salvador

January 25-February 1, 2019

Our location this year is in the ommm-azing surf town of Playa El Tunco. Known for its consistent surf, numerous oceanfront restaurants, bars, cantinas and world class sunsets, Playa El Tunco truly has a style all its own!

Morning class will be followed by a healthy, complete breakfast and then we’re off on adventures or free time all day.

Sunset, then an incredible meal from the Balancé team.

Located just steps away from the endless blue waters of the Pacific. You’ll listen to the waves break in front of our oceanfront deck as you swing in a soft hammock, enjoying the sanctuary of Balancé. These luxurious suites are well equipped to make your stay exceptional, as each unit has AC, private bathrooms, purified water, premium bedding, and linens. When you are ready for your practice the beautiful yoga studio is but steps away. Look forward to a coconut water straight from the coco daily throughout your stay as an added thank you!

During your free time you will have ample opportunities to relax in the sun, splash into surfing lessons, journey into the local culture, eat delicious and healthy native foods, and treat yourself to spa-level pampering!
