The resort is on a beautiful, quiet beach, only 15 minutes away from Old Havana – recently named one of the 7 New Wonders of the World.

Spend your days relaxing and participating in yoga, meditation, and dancing. Lounge in a hammock or on the beach, and enjoying as much or as little activity as you wish. The warmth and friendliness of the Cuban people is unparalleled.

The retreat schedule involves morning yoga and meditation, 3 organic home-cooked meals, afternoon yoga workshops, evening activities, free time after lunch, and two excursion days. Lots of opportunities to interact with Cuban people and international yogis, as well as spend some time to yourself.

Rivkah Rachel and Eduardo Pimentel will be guiding you through various yoga classes. Rivkah is a fun and flow based teacher, Eduardo is a student of BKS Iyengar. The classes will range from Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, and Iyengar.

Suitable for all levels, these moving meditation classes will challenge each student to go beyond where they have been before in a safe and authentic environment that encourages questions, smiles, and laughter. Whether you have been practicing for a decade, or have never stepped on the mat, you will find your place within our Cuba yoga family!

It is recommended that you have participated in at least a few classes before coming on retreat.

During the week, everyone has the opportunity to practice with one of the most experienced, talented Iyengar trained teachers in the world, Eduardo Pimentel. You also have a chance to have a group class with some of Eduardo’s students here in Havana!

Besides yoga, there are some amazing yoga workshops planned for you. You will be doing a salsa lesson where everyone gets their own Cuban teacher, a full tour of Havana, a visit to a local Organica garden to learn about Cuban agricultural practices (very unique), lots of live music!

This is your your vacation, and there is a perfect balance of scheduled activities and free time. Havana is so close and you are encouraged to go out and see it, above and beyond the guided tour. There is also the option of SUP or kitesurfing lessons. Massages, facials, manicures and pedicures are available as well. Anything done in your free time is an extra charge and not included in your retreat price.

On this retreat, you will go on a guided tour of Old Havana which is one of the 7 New Wonders of the World.

Distances

  • Old Havana - 15 minutes

There are three organic, healthy meals served each day by an expert local chef using only the best ingredients grown nearby. This is by far the best food in Cuba. Forget what you have heard, this is the real deal and we’ll also explain why Cuban chain resorts have such a reputation for awful food!

Although mainly vegetarian, there will be fish and chicken served at some of the meals and there is unlimited coffee and tea. Rivkah Rachel is able to accommodate most dietary restrictions so please let them know. Cocktails and beer are available for purchase!
