The Space

Equipped with a sparkling pool, WiFi, and A/C, you’ll be able to enjoy comfortable 4-star hotel accommodations without losing the rustic touch that makes Gigante unique. Yoga will be held between a tropical open space underneath our beautiful grand palapa and a cliffside ocean view shala.
Breaks in the day are encouraged, so feel free to take a moment to relax in one of our day beds or hammock, and appreciate the cloudy blue skies, palm trees, and gift yourself the feeling of serenity. 

The Community of Playa Gigante

 A colorful fishing village off the beaten path, El Gigante is located just over an hour north of San Juan Del Sur on Nicaragua’s beautiful Pacific Coast. The town is aptly named “big foot” when translated from Spanish to describe the gentle green foothills that meet the ocean with such ease. A town filled with untouched beaches, roaming farm animals, and dirt pathways; you’ll quickly remember the importance of slowing down and to embrace living simply.  
 
The lifestyle and culture here very much embodies the phrase “Take it Easy”. Arriving here feels like taking one long exhale and a chance to just be. 

The Meals

 “By purification arises aversion for one’s own body and for contact with other bodies.” Saucha is observing purity of what is taken in by the senses, as far as food, and other things we put into the body, as well as what we listen to, what we watch, and what thoughts we allow our awareness to pursue. To live in our yoga fully for our week together, we will practice saucha and ahimsa, non-violence, in the foods we eat by maintaining a vegetarian diet. Any other dietary restrictions will gladly be accommodated for. 
 
Our onsite restaurant will prepare thoughtfully-crafted vegetarian cuisine that still highlights the delicious, fresh, and local flavors of Nicaragua.

Bonnie Brazeau, E-RYT 500 Yoga + Meditation Instructor

Bonnie is an E-RYT 500 certified yoga instructor based in Southern California. Bonnie’s yoga journey began at a young age inside a small Bikram studio in Ann Arbor, MI. She continued to hold a Bikram practice as a way to cross train for race running, until she discovered the Mysore style of Ashtanga yoga at age 21. Immediately hooked and in love with the routine, she dove in and became a dedicated practitioner. She completed her first 200-hour Hatha Yoga training with Gypsea Yoga School in February 2018.
 
Since then, she has studied many styles of yoga, and continuously studies various forms of movement. She has worked at 6 studios, created her own business surrounding private clients in San Diego, helped open a new studio and hire/guide a yoga team in the Cayman Islands, led retreats abroad, and taught YTT’s for her first school as a student, Gypsea Yoga School in both Costa Rica and Florida. She completed her 500-hour Advanced Vinyasa Yoga training under Jonny Kest, the creator of the yoga program in the United States for LifeTime Athletic.
 
 
 
Her practice now, though still stemming from an Ashtanga background, is more free flow and sensation inspired. She challenges her body to find new ways to move from each side of the mat, and finds passion and self-discovery through this intuitive style.
 
Her style of teaching stems from her personal practice. She reminds students that yoga classes are really just breathing classes and draws awareness inwards to focus on sensation rather than appearance. With this in mind, she is a strong believer that all of life is yoga and whether you are driving your car, catching a wave, or laying on your mat- if your breath can be found, then your yoga is present.
There is a place for both softness and strength. You will confront many emotions and experiences through this journey, and that is intentional. You cannot heal what you do not acknowledge. This journey will guide you to both physical and mental edges, make yourself intentionally uncomfortable, and remind you to soften into it to experience it all. We cannot teach what we do not practice. I can’t wait to be a part of this journey with you!
