reNEW - New Year's Week! - Yoga & Myofascial Release Retreat

About us

Fill your heart up to the rim. 

I’m so excited to announce this New Year’s Week beachfront eco-yoga retreat on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. My love for Latin America runs deep and I cannot wait to adventure southward. Please join me for a renewal week dedicated to profound body and spirit wellness Dec 30, 2018-Jan 5th, 2019.

Welcome to one of the most magical places on earth. At the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, this area is  known as The Heart of the World. Famous for Tayrona National Park, it is home to the tallest mountain closest to the ocean and supports five lush rivers that run from the mountains to the sea.

Colombia is an ecological wonderland, and in this specific area the wildlife is abundant, with 20% of Colombia’s 1921 different bird species, the most in the world. Along with the abundance of nature, the indigenous tribes of the land continue to thrive and care for the land. Throughout the retreat, we will be immersed in the ancient wisdom of the Kogi people, who are considered protectors of the Earth. The Kogis will share their knowledge and lifestyle practices of how they aim to live in alignment with the planet and inspire us to do the same. Connect further to yourself, based out of our magical home for the week, Gitana Del Mar.

There’s something else that makes this retreat so very special: our afternoon practices will emphasize self myofascial release, a practice that deeply compliments yoga asana, but is in itself a skill of self-care that will enhance the rest of your life.

30 CONTACT HOUR CEUS WILL BE ISSUED FOR YOGA ALLIANCE REGISTERED YOGA TEACHERS, YOGA THERAPISTS, AND BODYWORKERS (PT’S ARE PER-STATE, BUT LIKELY AVAILABLE)

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

-Mark Twain

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
