Ludisis Caridad Mones Castellanos
Ludisis trained as a dancer in her native country, Cuba. From an early age, she felt a great passion for the spiritual world. Her training as a yoga teacher took place in Indonesia exactly in Bali, the island of the Gods. Her goal is to share her practice with her students and help them to know more about themselves and yoga. She is passionate about spirituality and offers wisdom, guidance, and persistence to her students. Teachers who worked with her in Bali found her to be a kind, strong, and powerful individual, and she can be relied upon to act as the calm in the middle of a storm.
Guenther Schauer's passion for Thai massage began in 1995 when he visited Thailand for the first time. On that trip, he received numerous traditional Thai massages and he quickly grew interested in this wonderful technique. In this same year he began studying in several schools in Chiang Mai. A year later he began to practice as a Thai masseuse in Japan, where he was amazed by the improvement that his clients began to feel. Guenther set out to share the benefits of movements and stretches giving Thai Massage while traveling around the world. He is now a certified Thai Yoga Massage instructor.

"Experiencing the Real Cuba"
I mostly enjoyed the variation of activities and places to visit. Ludisis really listened to what I enjoy prior to the trip and tailored it to my needs. This included visiting a ceramics studio, art galleries and an unexpected visit to meet Ludisis's family where I was welcomed with open arms. There was a good balance of excursions and meditation time which was useful for taking some time out and reconnecting. Ludisis was thoughtful, kind, patient and shown a genuine interest in ensuring I experienced all aspects of the real Cuba.

"Good, bad, and ugly"
Lourdisis tried to tailor the Cuba visit to our individual needs. Went with my 16 year old son. I’m a very experienced retreatant, having attended more than a dozen yoga retreats. The people she used for transportation were nice and professional.

"One of my very best travel experiences!"
The instructors are what makes this a truly unique experience! Every detail was so carefully planned, though they were open and willing to accommodate individual preferences and modifications. Because of the small group and the thought that was put into every detail, I felt that I experienced Cuba in a very different and personal way. As a native Cuban and because of the love that she puts into her work, Ludi is exceptional. She offered insights that I don’t think I would have experienced otherwise. As a team, Ludi and Gunther work together to ensure the guests are happy and attended too always. They make a great team.

"Cuba July Yoga and Afro Cuban Religion Retreat"
Ludisis' has a patient and open teaching style. She has a genuine desire for people to unwind and heal while experiencing some of the real Cuba.
I enjoyed the chance to see a few different places in Cuba. Accomodation, transport and guides were all well chosen and organised.
A fun dance workshop with Ludisis and the chance to meet her family was a highlight.
The introduction to the Afro-Cuban religion was eye opening and a valuable part of the retreat (but only for those with a genuine curiosity or openess to other beliefs).
I'm happy I chose to do this retreat!

La experiencia ha sido mejor de lo que esperaba. Sobrepasó mis expectativas. El lugar, las actividades y los monitores son lo más. Me encantaron las clases de yoga y meditación y las caminatas por el bosque...
He aprendido mucho en estos días y me fui a casa con mucha paz interior, que es lo que buscaba. Sigo aplicando diariamente todo lo aprendido y la verdad que los resultados están siendo de lo más curioso, y a la vez agradables. Gracias Ludisis y Günther por vuestras enseñanzas y por aportar más luz a mi vida. Grandes profesionales y sobre todo grandes personas. ¡Un abrazo!
