Inner Peace Yoga Retreat Cartagena
The Inner Peace Retreat is open to all levels of yoga practitioners. Classes will be geared towards beginning to intermediate practitioners, but all are welcome! Regardless of how long you have been practicing yoga, classes will be tailored to fit your body and your individual needs. Kick-start and deepen your yoga practice and leave the retreat with enough knowledge and experience to practice yoga and meditation on your own. During the retreat you will bring stillness to your mind with traditional daily fire ceremonies (Agni Hotra) for peace & healing, silent meditation, & vibrational sound healing. You will cleanse, heal & strengthen your body with locally sourced fresh juices, vegetarian food & daily yoga classes.
Leave the retreat feeling strong, clean, and connected to the light and peace that is your true self.
The Inner Peace Retreat is a carefully designed all-inclusive 5 Night stay, combining high quality yoga classes with meditation, yoga philosophy, sound healing & cleansing vegetarian food. We aim to provide you with a transformative yoga experience in the most beautiful of Latin Caribbean settings.
During this unique 6 day retreat, you will spend your nights staying at a delightful private holiday house within the UNESCO World Heritage city walls of Cartagena de Indias. Explore the city & practice yoga at our retreat center. You will have a day trip by private boat to the Rosario Islands and will practice yoga at various stunning locations. There is truly no place like the sunny, laid back, and vibrant Colombian Carribean! We can think of no better place to find inner peace and happiness. Come join us in the sun. <3
