Location: Santa Marta, Colombia
The purpose of this Yoga retreat is to revive our creative fire and explore different Yogic practices to provide you with the tools to develop your own personal practice for self-realization through Asana (physical movement), meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), philosophy & education.
Each day of the retreat will be focused on a different chakra of the body to develop an awareness of the chakra system and leave us cleansed and refreshed after the retreat! We will also offer afternoon activities for the group to bond, explore and see the beauty of Colombia!
Our retreats offer an intimate space for our students to grow individually and as a group. We believe in the power of community with family style meals, partner yoga and beach cleanups. We also encourage self-study, silent walks and individual space for our students to connect with themselves. Along with Yoga and meditation, each day of the retreat will offer an excursion of some sort to the surrounding sacred waterfalls, native riverbeds, indigenous tribe towns and national parks.
The Gitana Del Mar Beach Resort is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains alongside of the Caribbean sea. The lush land of Colombian offers a vortex of sacred space with limitless waterfalls and rivers streaming from the ice caps of the sierra nevadas. We take the time to hand select our retreat locations to find the most suitable, luxurious and eco-friendly resorts to privately host our retreat groups. Connecting to the culture of each country and the natural beauty of the land is so important to our retreats as well as connecting to to local attractions and community of our resort. This eco-chic boutique resort is small and cozy and privately rented out to our retreat for the duration of the week to keep the retreat intimate. We offer triple occupancy with 3 twin beds or a queen bed with a twin, double occupancy with a queen bed or a private room with a queen bed.
