Adventure and Heart, Retreat to Colombia


Anna’s retreats have become the gift I give to myself. I never thought I would be a yoga retreat person. I am not especially “good” at yoga and I can be shy in a group of people. But none of that matters. Anna creates an environment that welcomes and everyone and gives everyone a place. I have now been on four and I’m looking towards the next one. If you are even considering one, please say yes. Something about the magic lingers in a way that a regular vacation just doesn’t.

Journey with me to Santa Marta, Colombia, where the wild jungle of the Sierra Nevada mountains meet the white sand and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Daily yoga, gourmet, locally sourced meals, private beach-front accommodations, surfing, lounging and whatever else your heart and body need. Disconnect to reconnect with the healing combination of nature, yoga, community and intention.

THE REGION

Located on the northern coast of Colombia is the oldest city in Colombia, Santa Marta. This area is the jewel of Colombia and known to indigenous peoples as ‘the heart of the world’. Remote and beautiful beaches along the Caribbean Sea abut the wild jungle of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Its also the gateway to the stunning Tayrona National Park. Here, lush jungle scenery edges right up to the white sandy beaches and turquoise water for which the park is famed. Set alongside the Caribbean Sea, these are some of the best beaches in all of South America.

THE YOGA

Explore the duality of softness and strength daily. Yoga will take place in an open-air studio with a panoramic view of the ocean. Morning will be deep & strong, each class building on the last. Ample time for pose tutorials, pranayama and mediation. Evening will be softer, restorative and a sprinkling of deep stretch.
