Itinerary for the Cartagena, Colombia Yoga Retreat« Back to Trip Overview
Day 1 (-/-/d)
Today you’ll fly into Cartagena, Columbia arriving in the late afternoon. Our gorgeous mansion is only 10 minutes from the airport – a quick van ride away from our very special home for a week. We’ll have a chance to gather together make new friends and have a wonderful welcome dinner together after settling into our beautiful rooms.
Day 2-6 (b/l/-)
On most mornings we will begin our day at 8:00am for a walking meditation to open our hearts and set our intent for the day. When we return to our mansion with our warm bodies filled with the rays of the sun we will begin our morning Asana practice – followed by meditation time. By then we’ll be ready for our delicious breakfast!
After we’ve eaten we’ll meet up for our introduction to Jhon T’s Atmanada Yoga Sequence – a fantastic experience. Jhon T. blends traditions of Hatha Yoga, Iyengar, and Ashtanga and elevates his practice by incorporating a vigorous Vinyasa series with stretches, balances, backbends and inversions to open and strengthen the body.
After lunch there will be time to relax, shop, walk the town or even go to the spa. In the late afternoon around 5:00pm we’ll come together for a spiritual gathering, followed by dinner. We might have fun cooking-in some nights, or perhaps pay the house chef to make something for us, or even go out to any of the fantastic local restaurants that Cartagena is famous for!
Jhon T also has some special plans for us – he really wants to share his love for his country with us and so on several days he has trips planned (to the islands, the mud volcano, etc). Please note that on those days our schedule will differ from what is stated in the above paragraphs. Also, if you are not familiar with Jhon T’s yoga – do take a moment to watch the video on the right –>
Day 7 (b/-/-)
We leave Cartagena today renewed and with a change of heart. New friends have been made and old friendships made stronger. We look forward to the challenge of bringing our new dream of inner peace and centeredness home with us!
