About us

Bienvenido to Raíces Yoga & Culture Retreat in Puerto Rico. We provide our guests with more than just a yoga experience: in addition to our daily yoga and meditation classes, guests will participate in cultural activities that will expose them to the history, art, traditions, agriculture, and cuisine of this enchanted Caribbean island.

Our upcoming City Beach Retreat (May 5-11, 2018) will be at a modern home in the Ocean Park neighborhood of San Juan. Mornings will begin with a slow flow and meditation at the beach, a vegetarian/vegan friendly breakfast, and a mid-morning dynamic practice. Afternoons will be spend either doing voluntary work for hurricane relief efforts, or exploring the city. 

Each day will conclude with a vegetarian/vegan friendly meal prepared by local chefs and cultural activities where guests can learn everything from the history of Bomba to the delicious intricacies of Puerto Rican cuisine. We will also be spending time in the rainforest experiencing some of the best nature the island has to offer. We at Raíces Yoga & Culture Retreat look forward to meeting you!

“Raices Cultural Retreat was an excellent experience and one that I would recommend to others. The meals served were of superior quality. All the additional cultural activities and nature walks were an amazing complement to the yoga classes. I would recommend this retreat to any yoga enthusiast of any level, who also enjoys combining travel with yoga.” — Ciara, Bamako, Mali, New Year 2017 Retreat

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
