Yoga retreat in Cuba

7 Days Yoga Retreat in Cuba, Dec. 26th, 2018

Cuba is the most colorful place I’ve seen, not only for its beautiful architecture but also for its cheerful people. The pearl of the Caribbean gathers several races, cultures and religions that make it without a doubt a wonderful destination for yoga retreats.

Loaded with history and secrets, Cuba has an unrivaled wealth: Its people. We Cubans are positive, pure of heart and in solidarity. And maybe it’s our solidarity that catches the attention of visitors.

We Cubans share our music, our folklore, our food and even our funny words that sometimes we do not even understand.
