CUBA LOVE, a yoga retreat with Rivkah Rachel

Mhai Yoga & Wellness Retreat in Havana, Cuba
November 26-December 3, 2016

YOUR RETREAT:

Yoga, dancing and hiking… on the beach in the heat: this is Rivkah’s idea of a perfect week and she hopes you agree. Join like-minded souls from around the world for a relaxing wellness week with organic, healthy food, invigorating yoga practice and energizing and liberating dance classes.

LOCATION:

Our resort is across from a beautiful, quiet beach, only 15 minutes away from Old Havana – recently named one of the 7 New Wonders of the World.

Spend your days relaxing and participating in yoga, meditation, hiking, and dancing. Lounge in a hammock or on the beach, and enjoying as much or as little activity as you wish. The warmth and friendliness of the Cuban people is unparalleled – head into Old Havana, visit a world-class organic farm.

SCHEDULE:

Out schedule involves morning yoga and meditation, 3 organic, home-cooked meals, afternoon yoga workshops, and evening activities.  Free time after lunch, and two excursion days.  Email Rivkah for full detailed schedule.

YOGA

Rivkah Rachel and Eduardo Pimentel will be guiding you through various classes. Rivkah is a fun and flow based teacher, Eduardo is a student of BKS Iyengar.  Classes will range from Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, and Iyengar.

Suitable for all levels, these moving meditation classes will challenge each student to go beyond where they have been before, in a safe, authentic environment that encourages questions, smiles and laughter.

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.

We also have a chance to have a group class with some of Eduardo’s students here in Havana!  Whether you have been practicing for a decade, or have never stepped on the mat, you will find your place within our Cuba yoga family!

ACTIVITIES:

Besides yoga, we have all sorts of fun planned for you: Salsa Lesson, Spanish Lesson, Spa Night, beachcombing, a tour of Havana, yoga to live music, and bonfire with live music and folk dance workshop!

We also give you the option of a night out in Havana, a tour of las Terrazas biosphere and ecological reserve, or kitesurfing lessons.  Massages, facials, manicures and pedicures are available as well.
