This mother-daughter team will be hosting a retreat together in our beautiful yoga retreat Center in Havana. Join them for a week of movement, yoga, healthy eating and discovering Havana from February 21 to 28, 2016. This is your chance to take time for yourself, meet people from all over the world, reconnect with nature and disconnect from technology. This rejuvenating yoga-cultural retreat will bring you home feeling renewed and inspired.

The Retreat

A typical day begins at 7:15 am with a hot lemon water tea and optional morning mediation on the beach with Christine – our hostess and guide at MHai Yoga. Students are welcome to take advantage of the beautiful sunrise or breakfast is at 8am followed by morning free time. Our first class of the day will be from 10 am to 12pm.

The afternoon is yours to plan a trip into Havana, spend the day at the beach, go paddle boarding, take part in optional excursions or hang out at the retreat grounds.

Our evening yoga class is from 5:15-6:30 and dinner is served promptly at 7pm. After dinner you are welcome to hang out for night time programming or head back to your room for some quiet time.

We’ll go on group excursion to Havana on the Tuesday, with morning yoga in a park overlooking the Old City. This experience will be treasured in your memories forever.  Organizing your own trips into Havana later in the week is simple, either hop on the public bus (it stops right outside our resort) or just ask Christine to call a driver for you, it’s only 20 mins away.


We have three organic, healthy meals served each day by an expert local chef using only the best ingredients grown nearby: he cycles down the road to the local organic farm to get what he needs to prepare the meals. Most diets can be accommodated – and there are varied options available (including meat and fish), as long as we know in advance.

breakfast at 7:30-8,
yoga 9:30-11:30.

During the week, everyone has the opportunity for a one-on-one yoga session with one of the most experienced, talented Iyengar trained teachers in the world: Eduardo Pimentel. He’s been called the Grandfather of Yoga in Cuba, and he’s also a warm and kind person with an amazing sense of humour.
