Sol's yoga journey started in 2010. When she felt the transformation yoga had in her life, she started desiring to share the gift of yoga with others. One of her most influential teachers was Andrei Ram, and because of his teachings, she makes regular visits to his workshops in Santa Marta, Colombia to deepen her understanding of Raja Yoga. With this mindset, Sol gives every class from the bottom of her heart, creating an uplifting, safe environment for students who begin to explore and expand within their own body and consciousness.
Since 2001, Fabiana discovered the joys and benefits of yoga, a discipline to which she has dedicated herself to practice, study, and teach. Her appreciation of movement goes beyond yoga, since she has been a dancer from a very young age. Fabiana has trained in the disciplines of Ashtanga yoga, Dharma Mittra, and Iyengar styles, combining elements of each one to create a dynamic, inspiring, and alignment-based flow. Currently, Fabiana is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), as well as she has completed her yoga teacher training at Yoga London School (RYS) in London, United Kingdom.

"Wonderful relaxing retreat - intend to return!"
Gorgeous little island, transparent oceans in many shades, seagulls, pelicans and other birds flying, great vegetarian food, the sound of water, excellent semi - personalized yoga classes... and we got to play with dolphins!

"Heart and Soul"
The retreat is just perfect. Sensational location, two competent and kind instructors offering different styles of practices, hospitable meals with heart (go and see what I mean!) overall, my husband and myself enjoyed every minute of the experience.

"A few perfect days "
I am so grateful for the few perfect days I spent with Soma Yoga Cartagena in the Rosario Islands. The house is calming and beautiful, in a lovely and peaceful setting that feels like your own private getaway. The yoga sessions helped me dissolve into this environment and achieve deep relaxation and attention to enjoy the present. In addition, I loved visiting with the animals in the aquarium, especially the dolphins. Spending time with them after aquarium hours was a magical and healing experience.
Sol and Flaviana were extremely responsive, and made the entire experience seamless from the moment we met up at the boat dock. I enjoyed meeting and talking with both of them. They made all the guests feel so comfortable, only a few days felt like much longer.

" Couldn’t have imagined how amazing it would be!"
This retreat blew me away! Sol and Fabiana are both wonderful souls and we loved spending time with them! They have very different styles for yoga so it was a great balance. The house itself is incredible - sits right on the water. We slept with all windows/doors open and stepped off the deck into the most gorgeous Caribbean Sea to kayak and swim. The description of the retreat mentions the aquarium but I had no idea we’d essentially have the island to ourselves! Lilia cooked the most delicious food and everything was easy and comfortable and so relaxing. Can not recommend highly enough!

"PERFECT!! Beautiful place and wonderful yoga retreat!"
Where to begin! I honestly don't have enough words to express how incredible and perfect my time was with Soma Yoga Cartagena for the retreat in Islas del Rosario. Everyone, from making the reservation to the time the retreat ended, was so helpful, kind and terrific. Sol is an absolutely wonderful yoga instructor and person all around, always making sure I was ok, was enjoying myself, had everything I needed, and felt comfortable. She was always fun and easy to talk to and I learned so much from her about yoga, improving my practice, about her and beautiful Colombia. Second, the location! I could not have asked for a more beautiful and peaceful place to do a yoga retreat and spend time snorkeling, watching/petting dolphins, relaxing and finding a sense of peace and positivity! It is a beautiful house in a stunning location, practicing yoga on an island looking out over the water, and since there is an aquarium on the island, you have the special opportunity to visit it during a general tour/dolphin show as well as when it is just the staff--so a more private time to spend with the dolphins, truly unique. Third, the food is absolutely delicious! Lijia is a terrific cook and was always so upbeat, fun and positive to be around, adding to the overall joy of being there. Overall, this was the most magical and wonderful retreat! It felt like paradise and was hands down the best decision. I'm so grateful to have spent time there and would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you Soma Yoga!

"Peaceful, paradise healing retreat. "
I LOVED everything about this retreat! The environment is exquisite on your own island surrounded with turquoise, emerald green, fresh, clean clear water. Incredible new and fresh, clean light wood home with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Dolphins nearby waiting to be petted and talked to. Incredible nutritious, delicious clean and very tasty vegetarian meals, and of course, Sol and Fabi, joyful, kind, caring, attentive, relaxed, dedicated and experienced yoga instructors, and life affirming soulful beings to hang out with chill, laugh and philosophize with. These women are exceptional in every way and dedicated to healing and peaceful rejuvenation for their guests. I felt completely cared for in every way I could have every imagined. And I still can't believe what an incredible place I was just able to stay at! WOW!

"Best location "
The house and location were amazing! I'm a beginner to yoga and found the class pace just right. It was slightly challenging, but it never felt completely out of reach. Sol and Fabiana also helped with modifications for an injury I have. The food was so delicious and way above my expectations.

"Review for SOMA Yoga Retreat"
I loved the instructors and the peacefulness and tranquility of the island where the retreat was based. There were also lots of value add's such as the retreat being next to an aquarium that we had access to as part of the package. The food was also exceptional.

"Tollstes Yoga Retreat"
Die Stimmung war einfach unglaublich! Man muss dort gewesen sein um nachvollziehen zu können wie schön und idyllisches es dort ist. Hätte es mir nie so schön vorgestellt. Ich hatte wirklich eine gute Zeit und das Yoga war auch extrem gut und sehr professionell.
