Join Minerva and local Cuban instructors, as she partners with Cuba Wellness Adventures, for an all-inclusive transformative yoga retreat of a lifetime! See and experience the real Cuba in a conscious way, allowing you to support local artists and businesses, taste local cuisine, indulge in Cuban history and culture while deepening your practice as a yogi.
Wake up in a historical colonial home located in Santiago de Cuba and experience the world renowned Lotus Flow, which includes vinyasa sequencing, conscious alignment and meditation. Minerva will guide you through an intimate dance on your mats with your breath, moving you deeper into your bodies and connecting with your spirit. Each morning practice will end with a delicious Cuban breakfast prepared by local chefs.
Each day looks different. Ayurveda tips and dance classes will be offered daily as well as opportunities to experience firsthand the brilliant culture and sites that outline the beauty and history of Cuba. Day trips include hikes, museums, historical sites and visits to the beaches. Santiago de Cuba has played an instrumental role in the evolution of Cuban literature, music, architecture and politics placing us in the heart of it all. We will be steps away from plaza Parque Céspedes, the archetype for romantic Cuban street life. The plaza is surrounded by symbolic buildings with rich histories, such as the Town Hall, the Home of Diego Velázquez, the Cathedral, the former San Carlos Club and the Casa Granda Hotel—a treasure trove of Colonial, Eclectic, Rationalist, Neoclassical and Modern architecture.
Be sure to pack an abundance of curiosity, love and swimwear. Some days will include a second yoga practice either in the park or yoga on the beach, with the local yoga community. Other days will include personalized dance lessons so that we're ready for the lively Cuban dance scene and fiestas.
The evenings will encompass even more unplugging and unwinding surrounded by the beauty that is the glittering cultural capital city of Santiago de Cuba. Live music – sol and rumba and dance parties – both at the beach and near the colonial home. This holiday is more than just a Cuban vacation or a yoga retreat it's a myriad of ways to connect with the beautiful Cuban people and culture. Travel consciously, practice Karma Yoga, and deepen your asana practice alongside the other limbs of yoga. Secure your spot today!
