Healing activities and workshops that you receive during this retreat:
Afro Cuban dances workshops:
In these workshops, you will learn the main Afro Cuban dances and the representative dances of each Orisha.
These movements intend to imitate nature and contain a rich variety of songs, dances, touches, masks, and attributes.
The Afro-Cuban dance has come to save our existence, to corroborate our belonging to a legacy inherited from African grandparents, legends, and myths.
Orisha healing ceremony:
This healing ceremony will include healings with flowers, dances, songs, stamps, and herbs.
"Meet the Orishas" workshop:
In this interactive workshop, "Meet the Orishas", you will learn how our ancestors, in their efforts to hide their African religion and their magical practices, identified their African deities (Orishas) with the saints of Catholicism, resulting in a religious syncretism known today as Santería.
This workshop will be conducted by Afro-Cuban women practitioners who will share with you their knowledge which they have inherited from previous generations.
Excursion to the temples of Yemaya, Virgen de La Mercedes, San Lázaro, and Virgen de La Caridad del Cobre (in Havana):
On this healing excursion, we will visit temples of Catholic Saints (Orishas deities) that most visit the premises.
This will be a great opportunity to observe and recognize each Orisha while you are healed with the unparalleled tranquility and spirituality that characterizes these temples.
For this trip, Yalorde Yoga recommends you bring white clothes.
Afro Cuban music workshop:
A folkloric musical expression whose root is located in the African language brought to Cuba during the Spanish colonization on the island.
The hot music, sensual rumba, guaguancó, toque de Santo, songs, Abakuá, and Congolese songs, and the communication with the dead converge.
