“There is nothing prettier than a girl in love with every breath she takes.” – Atticus
During the Salty Souls Experience, we will step on the mat every day! Our intention is to accompany you into exploring beyond the practice of the poses. We will explore with you different styles , and will be introducing meditation, conscious breath-work, and mantra singing. A nice flow, inspired by many months spent in Bali & Nepal!
We aim to help you develop strength and become more graceful, but also become more aware and in tune with your body. Yoga is for us a way to create mental space, so we can generate a whole new flow of awesome ideas.
This practice promises to be highly invigorating, no matter what your level is!
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Buddha
Our approach to physical training is said holistic, or 360 degrees; the mind needs to be stimulated, our food be clean, our soul must feel alive, and the agility of our body must be cultivated! Marie-Christine & Erika have been training with Brazilian masters in Ginastica Natural, a complete full-body weight training method which benefits your entire body and life, allowing you to develop strength, endurance, mobility, core stability, balance, flexibility, focus and coordination simultaneously – resulting in incredible physical AND mental fitness. Surf-style training is also the best preparation to face the ocean confidently!
Workouts will be suitable for all level. Bodyweight only. A willingness to get sweaty and a little dirty is the only requirement ;).
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
Empowerment is being embodied and conscious in our daily actions. It is when we move through the world connected to our inner knowing. It’s finding ways to cultivate, magnify and stand in our power. Inside of you, lives some unexplored forces, a higher potential that is waiting to be unleashed. It’s not just in some of us… it’s in everyone. And as we learn to be liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.
Over the course of 3 workshops, we will help you find or refine what it means to live a vibrant & purposeful life, and how to be more daring.
Time has come to unleash your greatness!
“You think adventure is dangerous…try routine, it’s lethal.”
El Salvador is still such a raw & wild country to explore. So here are the highlights of the bucket list we’ve lined up for this trip:
✓ Hike on the crater rim of the Santa Ana Volcano
✓ Watch the sunset over the sparkling blue volcanic Lago de Coatepeque
✓ Learn to skate & improve your coordination at Puro Surf Academy
✓ Try each flavour of Pupusas… and repeat.
… Hopefully, you’ll be adding your personal touch to this list!
“We are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with.”
This experience is most probably the best occasion you’ll ever have to finally surround yourself with 14 active and inspiring chicks who have dreams as big as yours! The Salty Souls is your tribe, it’s a community of girls that want to do things differently. We can only imagine what projects, trips, ideas or sister-like friendships will arise from getting all the coolest women together for 8 days.
Above all, this experience will allow you to connect with yourself. To give your body & mind the space to remember what truly makes you vibe.
“Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn
To live this experience to the fullest, you’ll obviously need some very good fuel, and that’s why we thought of including a delicious & healthy menu. The Salty Souls’ approach is all about eating clean, without compromising the pleasure. We believe in finding the right balance.
Our cook chooses fresh and local ingredients to create finger-licking meals full of superfoods, which will make you feel physically awesome! The menu is vegetarian (with fish) and dairy products are optional.
You’ll undoubtedly be heading back home with a bunch of new recipe ideas.
↠ Who ↞
Who Is This Experience For?
This adventure is for women aged anywhere between 18 and 108 years old, that are ready to ignite their passion for adventure! We are looking for vibrant, passionate and active girls, who are not afraid of getting wet & salty, who are willing to say YES to new challenges, and who are thirsty to learn, share and welcome new perspectives. Having a burning desire to be part of this is all you need; no prior experience in yoga, surf, meditation, hiking or backflippin’ is necessary.
Disclaimer: If you are seeking a super relaxing retreat, filled with pedicures and manicures… sorry, but this is not the experience you are looking for. We will get salty 😀 ! Also, if you are feeling super YOLO and wanna be off the hook and party ’til the AM, we would probably advise another kind of trip.

↠ Where ↞
Picture a rustic Spanish-style villa, nested on a cliff, over looking a black sandy beach, with endless crashing waves in its backyard. Yep, the Casa Salty Souls it is, located in Playa El Zonte. It can accommodate 12 people over two pavillons, in shared occupations with air-con. There is two large oceanfront pools, a sundeck, a nice chilling area with hammocks, a direct access to the beach and enough space for yoga & big communal meals!
About El Zonte
Playa El Zonte is located on the pacific coast, 1 hour away from the International Airport. It is a layback costal village, where you will mostly be surrounded by friendly locals, fellow surfers and sun seekers. It is a safe and pleasant area, where the invitation is to live simply, following the rhythm of the tides. The beach is divided by a river mouth and there are two main surf spots: A right point break and a beach break. One of the most unique thing about playa El Zonte is the beauty of its black sand beach.
