Full Description

In addition to two top-notch daily yoga classes and being immersed in the friendly, welcoming Cuban culture, you’ll have the opportunity to practice yoga in a park overlooking Old Havana, experience local cuisine, tour this unique and vibrant city, visit a world class organic farm, paddle board in a beautifully calm lagoon, try your hand at kite surfing (all optional), choose a spa service, or simply relax on a hammock. This retreat is about you, and you choosing to do whatever will make you feel your best!

Each day begins with an optional sunrise meditation on the beach (worth waking up early for!), followed by an hour and a half of a moving meditation and yoga class. The vinyasa flow style yoga taught by Kathy Parsons, is a creative sequence of hatha poses designed to encourage students to connect their body, mind, and spirit through strengthening, lengthening and opening. The classes are set to inspiring music and incorporate a special savassana massage. The classes are suitable for all levels of yogi’s.

KP’s aim is to have every student finish class feeling lighter and more grounded than they were when they started (and smiling and laughter is encouraged!).

The second yoga class in the late afternoon or evening will be more restorative in nature or will be an alignment-focused workshop. These will be led by one of the most experienced, talented Iyengar trained teachers in the world, Eduardo Pimentel! He has been called the Grandfather of Yoga in Cuba, and he’s also a warm and kind person with an amazing sense of humour.

Everyone has the opportunity for a one on one yoga session with Eduardo!

There are three organic, healthy meals served each day by an expert local chef using only the best ingredients grown nearby. Although mainly vegetarian, there will be fish and chicken served at some of the meals and there is unlimited coffee and tea (We’re healthy, but not restrictive! If you feel like a cuba libra, beer or a glass of wine, there is a local bar on the property).

There is lots of free time in the afternoon to read on the beach, grab a bus to Havana, or to paddle board on a beautiful nearby lagoon. For those who would love to try a new water sport, you can sign up for lessons with the experienced and talented teachers from Havana Kiteboarding Club!

We’ll also have a salsa dancing class (to get you ready for a night out in Havana if you so choose) and of course, hammocks at your disposal ☺

After dinner each evening, there will be a workshop or a bonfire and plenty of time for socializing or taking time for yourself.

To book, please contact Kathy at and she'll direct you to our booking agent!

WARNING: You will feel so light when you leave this retreat! You will not have access to wi-fi all of the time, so it's a great opportunity to really Disconnect to Reconnect!!!
