What does it mean to really embrace your life? To embrace a country and it’s culture, in the beauty of what it is. End your 2017 with intention – and FUN! Join like-minded souls from around the world for a relaxing wellness week with organic, healthy food, energizing yoga practice and liberating dance classes. We’ll visit Havana and a local organic farm, we’ll have great conversations, we’ll inspire each other, we’ll relax and we’ll have a really, really good time.
Our resort is across from a beautiful, quiet beach, only 15 minutes away from Old Havana – recently named one of the 7 New Wonders of the World.
Spend your days relaxing and participating in yoga, meditation, hiking, and dancing. Lounge in a hammock or on the beach, and enjoying as much or as little activity as you wish. The warmth and friendliness of the Cuban people is unparalleled .
Out schedule involves morning yoga and meditation, 3 organic, home-cooked meals, afternoon yoga workshops, and evening activities. Free time after lunch, and two excursion days. Lots of opportunities to interact with Cuban people and international yogis, as well as spend some time to yourself.
Rivkah Rachel and Eduardo Pimentel will be guiding you through various classes. Rivkah is a fun and flow based teacher, Eduardo is a student of BKS Iyengar. Classes will range from Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, and Iyengar.
Suitable for all levels, these moving meditation classes will challenge each student to go beyond where they have been before, in a safe, authentic environment that encourages questions, smiles and laughter.
We also have a chance to have a group class with some of Eduardo’s students here in Havana! Whether you have been practicing for a decade, or have never stepped on the mat, you will find your place within our Cuba yoga family!
It is recommended that you have participated in at least a few classes before coming on retreat.
We have some amazing yoga workshops planned for you! We’re also doing a salsa lesson where everyone gets their own Cuban teacher, a full tour of Havana, a visit to a local Organica garden to learn about Cuban agricultural practices (very unique), lots of live music!
We know this is your vacation, and so we’ve worked to find that perfect balance of scheduled activities and free time. Havana is so close and we encourage you to go out and see it, above and beyond our guided tour. We also give you the option of SUP or kitesurfing lessons. Massages, facials, manicures and pedicures are available as well. Anything done in your free time is an extra charge and not included in your retreat price.
There are three organic, healthy meals served each day by an expert local chef using only the best ingredients grown nearby. (This is BY FAR the best food in Cuba. Forget what you’ve heard – this is the real deal and we’ll also explain why Cuban chain resorts have such a reputation for awful food!)
Although mainly vegetarian, there will be fish and chicken served at some of the meals and there is unlimited coffee and tea. We are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions so please let us know.
