Colombia Retreat with YogaScapes
Connect in Colombia
Welcome to one of the most magical places on earth. This area, at the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas is known as The Heart of the World. Known for the famous Tayrona National Park, it is home to to the tallest mountain closest to the ocean and supports five lush rivers that run from the mountains to the sea. In this specific area the wildlife is abundant, hosting 20% of Colombia’s 1921 different bird species, the most in the world. Along with the abundance of nature, the indigenous tribes of the land are what creates a powerful and sacred experience unlike any other. Throughout the retreat, we will be immersed in the ancient wisdom of the Kogi people, who are considered protectors of the Earth. The Kogi’s will share their knowledge and lifestyle practices of how they aim to live in alignment with the planet and inspire us to do the same. We designed this trip to bring you to a place that feels far removed from every day life and yet connects you deeply to the thriving nature all around to create an experience where you can release the busy-ness, cleanse by the ocean and nourish with practices that draw you into the heart and with community. We want to take you into one of the most biodiverse places in the world and connect you to a culture that has been thriving in the mountains for centuries, and most importantly integrate their teachings on how we too, can better protect our planet.
