Jéssica Martínez from SupYogaPanama
The first branch of it in 2012 was ViniYoga at Akila Yoga Institute. A certification that she carries in her heart is Yoga Nidra by Ezequiel Anguizola. Not long ago she did a diploma in Psycho-Physical Culture at the University of Panama, focused on Hatha Yoga. When she needs to disconnect from everything, she takes refuge in the sea practicing her favorite hobby: Stand Up Paddle. She a few years ago she joined both disciplines and found an incredible fusion. After dreaming it, feeling it, practicing it and studying it in depth, she decided to be – and create – the first floating studio platform in Panama: SupYogaPanama.
We will sail to Isla Bartolomé, a beautiful virgin island with crystal clear waters. You will learn to take the rudder and the sails of the boat, to set it on course. You will learn to position the sails according to where the wind comes from and according to where we are going. If we are lucky we may see turtles, manta rays and even dolphins, what we will surely see are fish and coral.
We love the sea and nature, but we like eating a lot too. In the kitchen we say that “life is already very sweet and does not need sugar”. Get ready to enjoy a menu of 100% local and natural products. Nothing processed, nothing with added sugar. The sugar will be that of pineapple, papaya, watermelon and the fruits that are grown in this beautiful corner of the world. All the vegetables and fruits come from the Saboga Island itself or from Chiriquí, in the Panama region. All legumes, rice, flour … everything that is not vegetable, comes from Panama too. Everything except plant milks and olive oil!
You’ll spend one night in Saboga Island, in the coolest place to sleep around nature. The camping area is located between palm trees on the seafront. The dawn light will wake you up so you can enjoy the sunrises, which are beautiful. All tents are equipped with mattresses and sheets. Showers are among palm trees and warm water but do not worry, you’re in the tropics. The bathrooms are dry, which means that no water is used, they work with the sand from the beach. It is a sustainable form of baths, which does not consume water because during the dry season, water is scarce.
