During the retreat, you will stay at Playa Bonita, Santa Marta, Colombia. Playa Bonita Eco Cabanas is a beautiful collection of sustainable and chic eco cabins, gently nestled between miles of endless Caribbean coastline and lush and green mountains. Each is designed with local materials, private bathrooms, ceiling fans, hammock, and a welcoming and comfortable tropical decor.

During the retreat, you will experience an authentic yoga sequence, meditation, and eco adventure along the warm golden sand beach and lush Colombian mountain tops.

The yoga practice

Let go. Receive. While immersed in the natural oasis of coastal Colombia, you will partake in playful and flowing bilingual asana or prana Vinyasa sessions each day. Guided in both English and Spanish, you will cultivate a basic awareness of the five prana vayus or winds and identify how energy flows within yourselves. Once prana or chulel is brought in, it is divided and directed into five different movements and areas inside of the body.

Each vayu has its own specific internal location, function, benefit, and direction. Experience and learn how to control this primordial life force energy that circulates through you. You move with the pulsation of the universe to open up every energy center in your body and enjoy the bliss of being alive. Life Force Project refines your body temples as vessels for the divine to manifest.

Included in this program is a day excursion to Tayrona National Park and an adventure to sacred waterfalls.

  • Wendolyne Omaña

    Wendolyne has been led to the path of yoga through the lineage of Prana Vinyasa by her teacher Monica Mesa Dasi, a senior teacher, assistant, and teacher trainer for Shiva Rea's Samudra Global School of Living Yoga. In addition to her Prana Vinyasa certification, she has pursued other trainings over the past few years that have kept her in the path of service and healing. Currently, Wendolyne is a family advocate for under-served populations. She is thrilled to share her spirit and the transmissions of the elders with you through this opportunity with The Life Force Project.

The retreat will be held in Playa Bonita, Santa Marta, Colombia. Located directly on the beach with the towering Sierra Nevada Mountains to its back, Playa Bonita is the perfect place to harness the relaxing vibrations of the sea and the power of the mountains.

The Caribbean coast of Colombia and Tayrona National Park is one the most stunning coastlines in Latin America. This remote paradise is a remarkably virgin system of crystal clear rivers, turquoise beaches, abundant rainforest, and a roof of a billion stars to light up the Colombian sky at night. Tayrona is quickly becoming a hot spot destination among adventurers from all over the world.

    "I truly feel so grateful that everything lined up for me to go! It was such a unique experience that could never be recreated again. I loved the location, the food, and having such experienced and knowledgeable teachers (both John and Sarah). The packets of information were a great aid to the learning and getting an aloe plant to work with definitely heightened the experience. Overall, I came back with a stronger connection to nature, myself, and the community around me. I definitely felt like I was on a higher vibration. Oh, and I love the air plant necklace."

    "The entire weekend was inspiring and insightful. The retreat house was magnificent with beautiful views of the water, and a great layout to allow for group intimacy and separateness[ if desired].Jon was a compelling teacher who invited the group to embrace difficult concepts which he made accessible and understandable. He was always available for individual discussions if questions arose. I appreciated his passion and the depth of knowledge about the subject. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Paige, went out of her way to respond to each individual 's dietary needs and incorporate them into her menu. The attention to detail in that regard was extraordinary. The paddle boarding and kayaking made for a welcome break, and allowed members a great opportunity to metabolize the complex concepts they were integrating.The weekend flowed beautifully. It was restorative and uplifting."

    "I knew David when he was in his corporate role, when he was known as the bulldog. His persistence and go get ‘em attitude served him to lead a successful real estate career. He was the guy you wanted to have a cigar and a scotch with after a long day’s work. I also had the pleasure of traveling with him through Colombia after he decided to break away from the daily grind to embark on his transformational journey. Not only was David an amazing, highly competent and engaging host, but the perseverance I saw behind the office desk transformed seamlessly into a truly inspirational soul searching guide. He’s still the guy I would like to have a cigar and a scotch with - right after a nice long yoga or meditation session."

    "During his stay with us at the Peace Retreat, David was always enthusiastic and engaging. He was both serious about his yoga practice yet light-hearted and fun to be around. I look forward to working with David again in the near future."

    "I began working with David as a healer and mentor. Over the years I have seen David’s unshakable commitment to working on healing himself and mastering the techniques that would serve him in passing his passion and his skills onto others. David has always been willing to dig deep within himself to get to ever greater levels of self-realization. What has emerged is an authentic, grounded and wholly compassionate individual with a true love of his life and his work and the skills and techniques to guide others through their own transformational journeys. Now I have the pleasure of working side by side with David to help him turn his dream and his work into a reality."

    "Kudos David! The Ranch in Carbondale is beautiful, calming, and an amazing place to open your heart and feel alive. From meditative hikes to group workshops, organic and local foods to soaking in the Jacuzzi under the stars the retreat left me feeling rejuvenated, aware, and with a higher understanding on bringing my aspirations and goals to fruition. David is a great soul and the Life Force Project will certainly bring you one step closer towards enlightenment."
