Yoga Retreat Meets the Wonders of Cuba

In July, Cuba Wellness Adventures and insightCuba will join forces to create a people-to-people tour designed for travel aficionados and yoga enthusiasts alike.  

The trip will feature daily early morning yoga classes taught by Cuban and American instructors followed by an insightCuba renowned people-to-people Cuba tour. Participants will enjoy the opportunity to practice alongside Cubans, and experience heartfelt and energizing classes that will help them make the most of their people-to-people cultural adventures.

Highlights of the tour include performances by talented musicians in traditional bands called piquetes; exploring the colorful town of Remedios by bicycle taxi; traveling between provinces by antique steam locomotive; and learning about the soul of Cuban dance. 

The Cuban yoga community is vibrant and growing. Many Cubans brave daily obstacles, such as lack of transportation or practice space—but this often strengthens their commitment to yoga and the joy with which they approach their practice.

Cuba Wellness Adventures, founded by San Francisco Bay-area yoga and dance teachers, was formed to facilitate meaningful cultural exchanges through yoga, music, dance and holistic health practices. The instructors have almost twenty years of experience living in, and traveling to Cuba, and dancing and practicing yoga with their Cuban counterparts.

Cuba Wellness Adventures works with Cuban Yoga Association president Eduardo Pimental, who has trained yoga instructors in more than fourteen Cuban provinces. Participants will appreciate his humor and grace, and the dedication of the Cuban teachers and association members.

This trip represents the perfect choice for couples or families with different interests. Early morning yoga classes are optional. Even without them, you’ll enjoy meaningful, engaging experiences with the lifelong residents who give Cuba its spark.
