Yoga In The Mountains Of Nicaragua
You will practice yoga overlooking the Nicaraguan cloud forest from our base at Finca Esperanza Verde, high above Matagalpa. Finca Esperanza Verde is a tranquil oasis far away from the heat of the lowlands. This working organic coffee farm turned eco-resort is the perfect antidote to frenetic city life. Once you step foot onto the property the stress of life back home becomes a thing of the past.
Our local guides will take us out to explaing trails that crisscross the property. They will help us spot howler monkeys, two and three toed sloths (we saw over ten sloths last year!), parrots, toucans, hummingbirds and so much more!
Ambuja Yoga is big on community and creating connection, so we will visit Mujeres del Plomo for a jewelry making workshop. The women of Mujeres del Plomo have created a women’s co-op with a powerful story of community, hardship and triumph. We love them and think you will too.
One of our favorite experiences at Finca Esperanza Verde is to have the local band come over to play for us as we roast marshmallows over the fire and dance under one of the most impressive banners of stars we’ve ever seen! It’s a perfect way to celebrate our time in the mountains. And it is completely surreal!
Yoga will be practiced in the covered lounge overlooking the jungle. An impressive view of rolling clouds, green jungle canopy, and abundant wildlife help us savor the present moment and the intense beauty of our surroundings.
Finca Esperanza Verde has truly embraced the meaning of being an ecolodge. The finca, a working organic coffee and vegetable farm, uses only responsible and sustainable methods of farming, 100% solar and hydropower electricity, a 100% carbon neutral thermo siphon system to heat water, vermiculture, composting, biodiverse landscaping, and fabulous farm-to-table meals. You will have the opportunity to enjoy Finca Esperanza’s fantastic coffee, grown and processed on site and feast on organic meals sourced from the farm’s gardens and nearby neighbors.
The Colibri, Tucan, and MotMot cabins have breathtaking views where you can watch the sunset behind the mountains as the sky begins its light show. Finca Esperanza Verde’s cabins are charming, simple and unfussy Their simplicity allows the surrounding landscape to rule the show.
You will quickly settle into the rhythm of life at Finca Esperanza Verde; sounds of the forest will lull you to sleep each evening and the howler monkeys will provide your morning wake up call. Your afternoons will be spent hiking and exploring with new friends that share similar visions and goals, cultivating gratitude for the simple and small things in your life, and discovering the types of relationships, friends and energy you want to surround yourself with when you get home.
You will be welcomed warmly from the moment you arrive at FEV and before your stay is over you will be plotting and scheming your return.

Autumn Adams, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP
Autumn founded Ambuja Yoga in 2014 as a way to not only share her love of yoga, travel & adventure, but as a way to cultivate intention, courage and grace in her students. She hopes her retreat attendees will leave her retreats with a feeling of purpose and with the ability to invite their intention into all aspects of their lives. She encourages her students to be conscious creators… to have the courage to take risks (both big and small), the courage to listen deeply to their body, to their gut, to their heart and the grace to “roll with the punches” on this messy path we call life.
