Join Brisa in the Heart of the World
June 22-29th, 2024
Join us and embark on a spiritual quest in the Heart of the World. Our week together is designed to support your needs & inspire you. From a day at the spa, to riding horses at the beach; from practicing yoga, to reading a book by the pool; from hiking to an enchanted waterfall, to attending a spiritual ceremony; this week is your gateway to a transformative journey of self-discovery, relaxation, and deep connection in one of South America's most awe-inspiring natural landscapes.
THE EMPOWERED YOGA RETREAT EXPERIENCE
Nourish yourself from the inside out through yoga and meditation, connection and friendship, adventure and fun, and through living authentically and fully! This is a judgment-free zone for you to celebrate and be yourself. We are here to support you as you find your own kind of zen.
Deep Connection with Nature
Our retreat takes place in a secluded and private oasis, the Gitana Del Mar Resort, allowing you to connect deeply with nature and life itself.
Daily Yoga and Meditation Sessions
Led by experienced yoga instructors, our daily sessions offer a holistic approach to yoga, catering to all levels of experience. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced yogi, you'll find guidance to deepen your practice. The sound of ocean waves, the scent of tropical flowers, and the gentle rustle of palm leaves in the wind will accompany your yoga and meditation practice.
Immerse yourself in the rich indigenous culture of the region. We offer opportunities to learn from the local Kogi and Wiwa communities, gaining insights into their sustainable way of life, spiritual practices, and traditional wisdom.
Stay in eco-friendly accommodations that blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings. Gitana's Eco-Chic Bungalows are the ideal place to experience the beauty and peace of Colombia's beach jungle. Each bungalow is designed with a very distinct architectural feature that the indigenous from the area have been utilizing for hundreds of years - the palm roof. Not only are these structures made from sustainably and locally harvested palm fronds, the vaulted ceiling design keeps the rooms cooler and more fresh than any other available man-made material.
Gitana's kitchen works with the local fishermen of the area to bring the freshest seafood available. This sea to table approach combines healthy ingredients together in a coastal themed, fusion-style menu with Colombian, Latin and Asian flavors. Their ever-evolving selection is a unique combination of the traditional dishes and flavors from Colombia along with other recipes from around the world. They are passionate about supporting their community and use the most local ingredients available, including fruit, veggies and herbs from our own gardens and fresh-caught fish and seafood from our regional fisherman.
*The chef can accommodate any vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free requests
