Tell us about yourself and your yoga retreat
Andrei Neagoie and Craig Young founded TranformationU with a shared vision of spreading our passion for a healthy life. We have compiled leading edge advice from the top minds in fitness, nutrition, business performance, personal development and have created simple and effective ways of helping our clients implement these into their own lives.

We have also been very fortunate to have connected with some great minds who make up our advisory board and trust in this diverse group of individuals to help guide our ideas and contribute to our programming.

What styles of yoga you offer? Does your yoga retreat specialize in one?
We offer yoga classes in Vinyasa and Hatha practices.

What makes your yoga retreat unique?
You will be taken to a remote part of Nicaragua where you will spend 8 days living at a beautiful eco-lodge. Here you will be guided through daily meditation, yoga, surfing and other activities. You will also attend daily sessions designed to enlighten and inspire.

This adventure will help you to upgrade your personal performance by introducing you to healthy habits, routines, and thinking embraced by some of the biggest experts in the world of health, neuroscience, habit formation and stress reduction. Through self analysis and a week of exposure to new information and experiences, you will be guided to create an action plan for a new life of health, balance and vitality.

Note: This trip is remote and off the grid! It’s an adventure not a spa get-away. It’s an immersion in nature that will become an experience ingrained for life!

Do you or  your yoga retreat provide other services other than yoga?
Yes! We are providing daily surf Lessons, habit formation sessions, and a Local school visit. We also offer massages, horseback riding, and if we are lucky, a chance to help release baby turtles back into the ocean.

What’s your favorite yoga posture? And why?
Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) because it is the best pose for myself to energize my body, while also getting my energy centred. Plus who doesn’t love being challenged by a handstand!

What teachers or teaching styles have inspired your practice?
Kathryn Beet, T.K.V and Kaustaub Desikichar. With that said, I love practicing all types of styles because there is so much to learn in all of them.

When did you begin practicing and/or teaching yoga?
It all started 10 years ago in my university dorm room. After one session, I was hooked and my body and mind needed some more! The love just kept growing and growing from there.

When did you open your studio/business?
We are brand new and launched on January 13th, 2015. We are excited to make this experience a life changing moment for our clients. Can’t wait to share this journey with you all.
