If you have tried googling San Juan del Sur yoga, then you know that there is no shortage of yoga class, retreats and teacher training options that show up online. The reality is that many of the websites are outdated and the instructors have long since left town.
Zen Yoga is the first and only real yoga studio in San Juan del Sur with a variety of levels, consistent instructors and regular class schedules. No matter what day of the week it is, you can be certain of finding a quality yoga class available at Zen’s outdoor yoga studio centered in the heart of San Juan del Sur. Located just one block west of the church square and surrounded by Fundacion Tierra’s beautiful nursery gardens, this two-storey outdoor studio capturing sea breezes and ocean views is an oasis of oxygen.
Styles and levels of classes vary daily and there are several different instructors to choose from, so be sure to try more than one class. As mats are available within the studio, all you need is motivation and an open mind. While most classes are taught in English, a few are offered in Spanish. Tea and chilled water are provided for students after class in the Zen Den. If you need more than yoga to recover and escape then be sure to ask about Reiki, Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage options. The third Wednesday of each month, Zen offers their speciality Vinyasa Vino which is dynamic vinyasa flow class with live guitar followed by sharing wine and chocolate.
The Zen Den also features a variety of local art, jewelry, clothing and yoga products, so you may want to be bring a little extra cash to class. It is also the only place to purchase yoga mats and supplies in San Juan del Sur.
Lessons from experience: Like all businesses and homes located in the center of San Juan del Sur, Zen yoga is exposed to the sounds of the city. It is unlikely that you will make it through an entire class without hearing the church bells, a motorcycle or at least one announcement about a Movistar promotion. Our advice is to take a deep breath and be thankful that you’re able to practice yoga outdoors year round at Zen Yoga!
