“Sansara” is a Sanskrit word that stands for “continuous flow.” In yoga, we achieve this flow through asanas, or postures, which stimulates energy pathways within the body and creates blissful change. It is the intensity of our attachment to the things we value, which interrupts this natural flow, thus allowing for stagnation and causes us discomfort. Only by transforming our attachments, do we enter a space of acceptance and gratitude for every moment in our life.
Sansara’s yoga shala is a beautifully designed thatched roof rancho facing the Pacific Ocean. It can be used in all weather and comes fully stocked with mats, straps, bolsters, blankets, handcrafted wooden blocks, sound system and tropical hardwood floors.

Massage Shala
The Sansara massage shala an open-air oceanfront sanctuary for relaxation and optimal wellbeing, all within the comfort of the resort's tranquil setting. The perfect way to escape the stress of everyday life, let us help you unwind from a day of fun, sun and surf!
