Las Catalinas in Playa Danta is becoming a hotspot for stand-up paddling (SUP). So it makes perfect sense that this location has been chosen for a SUP & Yoga Teacher Training Certification Retreat. Presented by the Yoga Energy Studio, Your Zen Yoga and Pura Vida Ride, the six-night, seven-day retreat will take place Aug. 23-29, and is offered by 500-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainers and World Paddle Association Certified Instructors. You can become a professional SUP & yoga teacher or simply learn how to combine paddleboarding with the ancient tradition of yoga. For more info, email
