The Heart of Joy and Vitality!

Natalie Davidson and Willow Conolly would like to invite you on a soul filling adventure to Panama! We offer the time and space for you to enhance your vitality and remember that your true essence is – JOY.


We will enjoy 7 days and 6 nights at Istmo. It is a family owned and operated full-service yoga retreat center in Playa Grande, San Carlos, Panama, located only 1.5 hours from Panama City.
