Colombia Self-Realization & Empowerment Yoga Retreat
- 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!
- This retreat 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.
- Daily group excursions and jungle adventures to National Parks, Waterfalls and River Tubing are also offered, along with the option to explore individually. Our retreat will conclude with a Moon Ceremony and celebration on the beach.
- There is something for everyone to gain from this retreat experience! Begin your Yoga practice, expand an existing practice, dive deep beneath the layers of the Chakra system, connect with like-minded individuals, build community and a spiritual sangha, explore the lush land of Colombia and create an unforgettable experience.
