Eduardo helped me learn so much about my body, how to perfect my poses, my breath. Natalie is so inspiring, has a way of making each person feel beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for a better week, it was relaxing, educational, fun, the schedule was perfect and the food was delicious.

I had a wonderful experience! The schedule was excellent, there was a great combination of yoga, activities, workshops, excursions and plenty of free time to relax on the beach. My favourite moment was Eduardo’s class with his Cuban students. It was such a wonderful bonding experience to practice with Cubans and to see how yoga can bring two distinct cultures together despite any language barriers. The food was amazing, I love chef Ernesto, I want to take him home ☺.
Eduardo is full of spirit, he has immense amounts of wisdom to share about yoga philosophy and life. Natalie’s positive and loving nature reached us all. I wouldn’t change a thing (maybe throw in a brief Spanish lesson ☺)
Of course I’ll come back, hopefully sooner than later.

The week was very much what I needed, it was very rejuvenating week with a collection of very special people.Sun, sand, the ocean, fantastic food, yoga and great people sharing wonderful experiences, does it get any better?
The time with Eduardo was a special gift. His knowledge on yoga, his country and life is enlightening. His sense of humour and playfulness is genuine and infectious. He is a true leader.
Natalie’s eyes of concern and compassion and genuine desire of everyone to find happiness and enjoyment was always at the forefront of everything she does. Her beautiful smile and willingness to laugh at an instant made us feel very welcome. The food was excellent, far exceeded expectations. Cannot think of any way you could make this experience any better for a group.

Love is in the details. This is how I would summarize my experience with Mhai Yoga. It was through the attention to detail that Christine, Natalie and Alejandro set that solidified my love for the experience. It was a week infused with pure energy, wonderfully delicious food, great music, new learning, and sharing. Mhai Yoga was able to connect the fundamental elements of Yoga with that of a simple, untainted and honest life that I have personally experienced in Cuba for years. The ability to learn directly from Cuba’s Yoga Master, Dr. Pimentel, was invaluable. The experience was a rare opportunity to thoroughly enjoy all the physical senses and connect them to an individual spiritual awareness.

I loved the joy of life that she has. I experienced the most powerful yoga classes that I ever had with Natalie. Eduardo is a very special instructor who describes very well the sensations and the positions, I have learned a lot about my body. The excursions were wonderful, the location was beautiful, loved hearing the birds in the morning. The food was great, I have never eaten so good, taste so good and great for my body.

A great experience, the food was unbelievable, the yoga was superb and the whole week was an amazing experience, every day was different, with a very relaxing atmosphere. The excursions were so interesting and cultural, I learned a lot. I am new to yoga and I never imagined how much I would enjoy this week doing yoga in Cuba.
Michael, ON

The location was perfect, quiet and yet very close to Havana. The food was amazing, changed my opinion on food in Cuba and I loved both instructors. Natalie and Eduardo really listened to us and I felt like they were there every step of the way teaching and sharing with us. They both had different styles and I very much enjoyed the variety. Some classes were fun, and others were emotional, I enjoyed all. I feel so relaxed after this vacation; It was overall wonderful and unforgettable.

Food was amazing! The villas and the pool were great. This was my first time and it truly exceeded all my expectations, from the yoga, to the food, to the teachers, everything was amazing.

The experience of Cuba could only be had because of Mhai Yoga, no other retreat could offer this. I will hold this in my heart forever. I am honoured to know Christine and Natalie and so glad I made the decision to come, Gracias!!
