Cartagena, Colombia

March 14 -18, 2017

Winter Escape Retreat:  Happy Inside and Out

Take a journey with me to the colonial walled city of Cartagena de Indias, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia.  Our home for the retreat will be Hotel Quadrifolio, a luxury boutique hotel set in a beautifully restored 17th century mansion in the historic center of Cartagena.  We will have the entire hotel to ourselves, with a gracious common area, dedicated yoga space, rooftop lounge with pool, jacuzzi, and 8 luxurious suites (this means space is very limited and early registration is highly recommended).

You will have 2 yoga sessions a day, a rejuvenating morning yoga practice and an evening restorative yoga including self-massage using therapy balls to unwind and release muscular tension from your day’s activities.  During your free time, immerse yourself in the history, culture and charm of Cartagena with cathedrals, fortresses, canyons, convents, theaters and museums.  For a day, we will escape in a private 38” speedboat to Islas del Rosario, to delight in the beautiful flora and fauna and to swim in the pristine Caribbean waters.

 

This is an invitation to thaw your winter contractions and create space for quiet reflection and unwinding, without taking away all the other things you love to do on your vacation – from yoga to swimming to sightseeing to even shopping and nightlife if you wish.  And Jet Blue's easy flight to Cartagena from NYC for under $500 will take stress off from your travel plans. 

Come join me in Cartagena, and find your happy place, inside and out – a place where sightseeing is matched with ‘just being,’ and the very best of luxurious accommodation becomes the perfect sanctuary for your soul.
