CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA: Atmananda Yoga Retreat – to be announced
Truly a gem of the Caribbean – the port town of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia has been a beauty and delight to visitors for centuries. The tropical waters of Cartagena, with their purifying power, will refresh and awaken your body, mind, and spirit. Flow into the Atmananda Yoga Sequence and free yourself from physical and emotional tensions and blockages – elevate your soul to pure bliss. This winter, a paradise of relaxation, revelation, warm ocean breezes, and adventure is waiting for you on the coast of Cartagena!
A Touch of Heaven
We’ll spend 7 days in our own private heavenly mansion, centering ourselves and deepening our yoga practice. Each day yoga teacher Jhon T (owner of Atmananda Yoga Sequence in NYC) will guide us into the sacred vinyasa practice – opening ourselves to the power of transformation, quieting our minds, and opening our hearts. By the time we go home we will be refreshed in our bodies and our souls ready to make positive changes in our lives. If you would like to learn more about Jhon T, I invite you to watch the video on the right. –>
Filled with delightful little shops, intimate cafes, charming colonial buildings, and quaint restaurants – you will be inspired by this Caribbean town. Even Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez loves this wonderful city (he grew up near by and later lived in the city) and used it for the backdrop of his famous book; Love in the Time of Cholera. But don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to explore town in between daily yoga lessons!
Truly you’ll be staying in one of the most stunningly beautiful and oldest historic colonial homes in Cartagena. Casa Pombo has roots dating back to the beginnings of Cartagena, which was settled in 1533. In 1804, this aristocratic mansion belonged to Don Manuel de Anguiano, commanding officer of the Royal Army who was a hero in the War for the Independence. This majestic mansion was renovated by the famous master architect Alvaro Barrera in 2007, and it is considered one of the most prestigious and exclusive residences of Cartagena. During your stay, you’ll be taken care of by dedicated personnel who will give you all the special attention you need and deserve as if you were in a grand luxury hotel.

“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul.”
