5 Day Yoga, Art, Wellness Women’s Retreat to Colombia
August 1 - August 6| From $459
Intuition Eterno invites women from all stages of life, all backgrounds, and all levels to join us on 5-day yoga & wellness retreats to Colombia. This is our inaugural year, so we have kept costs low to as to make it accessible to anyone who may want to visit Colombia and return home feeling reinvigorated by a unique, entirely holistic getaway.
These retreats were founded and are facilitated by two 30-year old best friends based in San Francisco. Between us, we have 20 years of dance and yoga training, and have traveled to more than 30 countries. We can’t wait to suspend reality with you while we take this dreamlike adventure together!
Colombia is our destination for our Intuition Eterno retreats – the lush, enchanting, dynamic Colombia.
We offer two consecutive sessions in August 2018. You may join us for one or both. The SUN session will take place August 1-6 on the Caribbean coast. Our second session – MOON – takes place August 7-11, 2018, in the Andean foothills outside the vibrant city of Medellin.
Our first session – SUN – takes place August 1-5, 2018 on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, about 2 hours from the city of Santa Marta, where we will gather guests and transport them to the retreat site. To give you an idea of where we’ll be, imagine Pre-Hispanic times on the tropical coast: palm trees, stone ruins, wooden bungalows, flamingos (yes, there is a flamingo reserve nearby). Reserva El Matuy will host us in wooden bungalows on the beach, and though there is no electricity or wifi except at the front desk, it has everything else you need for a comfortable stay.
We will be guiding daily yoga and meditation sessions, playing around with movement, dance, and improv, as well as offering herbalism, sound healing, and ecstatic dance sessions. From our collective experience, we’ve found these activities to connect our bodies with our minds and spirits, which can produce this amazing feeling of centeredness and empowerment.
Ghazy is a certified yoga trainer, and is currently studying her practice in an ashram in India. She will be leading us in surya yoga flow in the morning, and a chakra yoga flow in the evening. She will also guide us in a 30-minute active dynamic meditation each day. Natalie is a theater and dance artist, specializing in expressive arts and somatic movement. She will facilitate workshops on somatic healing and dramatic expression to get us out of our heads and into our bodies.
During free time, you’re welcome to swim and surf in the sea, float down the nearby Palomino River, explore the nearby villages, or just relax in a hammock and sip on tropical fruit smoothies.
We will start the week by setting intention, and will close each day with a gathering circle so that we may support each other on this lifelong healing journey!
We will provide dinner on the first day of the retreat, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the second, third, and fourth days of the retreat. We’ll provide breakfast on the fifth day before departure from the retreat site. All meals will be cooked from locally sourced ingredients (organic when possible), and mostly vegetarian (though we will have meat and vegan options available by request, including no shortage of freshly-caught fish).
Natalie & Ghazy are your co-facilitators for this all women’s retreat. We have dedicated our lives to achieving true connectedness of the body, mind, and spirit…not an easy task but one that we have learned is actively cultivated through yoga, meditation, art, dance, plant medicine, ceremony, wholesome food, travel, and time with friends. We’ve carefully organized these retreats to incorporate all of these elements in less than a week – bound to leave you feeling reinvigorated, inspired, empowered. We are both 2nd generation immigrants and personally invite other WOC to embark on this seaside nymph adventure.
