It’s my morning off and one of the last days here, so I decided to treat myself to a yoga session back at my favorite little spot in town.
La Buena Vida is an artistic hotel offering private villas, massage, yoga and a variety of sweet treats and healthy meals in there open air restaurant. The owners Michelle Miller and Mike Shogren are a young American couple who migrated to Panama in 2005. After traveling Central America for sometime they knew Santa Catalina was their new home to build La Buena Vida from the ground up. Well done my friends!
Following the signs to get to the studio was such a brilliant way to start the day. I think I liked the location and hike just as much as the actual practice!
At the final turn you reach the top of the hill that welcomes you with creative decor and a peaceful ambiance. A silence that’s only enhanced by the birds chiming in, as the wind brushes through the tree tops. Not to get all poetic, but this place really is a sight to feel.
I was the first to arrive and was invited in by Michelle. I’m sad to say that I don’t have a picture of her beaming smile, but trust my words, her calming energy and sincere eyes are a perfect fit for this little heaven in the jungle.
After completing class, I float back down the hill and return to finish up my days here in Santa Catalina.
To the wonderful girls that I got to connect with at La Buena Vida, I thank you for brightening my experience and I absolutely appreciate your shared energy. Peace, love and a gorgeous sunsets!
