During this retreat, you will spend nights inside the old walled city of Cartagena in a fully staffed private mansion of Travel Colombia Direct. This house is fully staffed within famous Old City walls. Your accommodations are chosen for a quiet setting, air conditioning, pool, and internet access. What a beautiful open space on the property for practicing yoga!

Travel Colombia Direct has operated bespoke tour groups in Cartagena for over nine years and has access to dozens of luxurious and historic old city mansions. Currently, they have two mansions on hold, Casa Tejas which has a capacity of 14 guests, and another mansion that is slightly smaller. Both have courtyards with a pool, air conditioning, balconies, and large, clean rooms. The property they end up using depends on how many guests sign up for the retreat. All properties are comfortable, luxurious, clean, fully staffed, and have air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

The smaller property will be very similar. It will just have fewer guest rooms. Room allocation depends on people booking retreat. Couples will share a room as well as friends coming together. Singles will be placed with another single (same sex). All rooms have a double bed and a single bed. If there is an odd number of participants, one single will be placed in a smaller room. If you would like to be guaranteed your own room please inquire, there is an extra fee for private rooms.

Program

This is the second retreat Blue Sky Cartagena has led to Cartagena. There will be various class levels and styles offered, from energetic Vinyasa flow to gentle or Restorative with sound baths. During the retreat, there will be a combination of gentle and advanced classes offered. In addition to daily yoga classes, there will be daily meditations, sound baths, and traditional Vedic fire ceremonies (Agni Hotra) for peace and healing.

Yoga classes will incorporate ancient mantras (with harmonium) and sound baths with Tibetan singing bowls and bells. You will practice mindful silence (Mauna) each morning. You will leave the retreat renewed in both body and mind, and with enough experience and knowledge to bring your yoga practice home with you. This retreat could very well change how you perceive yourself and the world around you.

You will practice yoga outside in the courtyard when weather permits, and inside with AC when the Caribbean sun gets too hot. You will also take a day trip by private boat to a pristine Rosario Island location, where you will practice yoga and meditate to the sound of the waves in true tropical paradise. On the islands day, a modern speedboat with a professional skipper, shipmate, drinking water, insurance coverage, and a full tank of gasoline is ready for a day of exploring.
