YOGA INVIERNO EN CUBA
March 3 - March 10 2018 | Havana, Cuba - Playas del Este
Join Tim in his third annual yoga and cultural retreat in Cuba. This is a special trip, and a chance to filter the many colors of Cuba through the lens of yoga. We will tour Havana, visit an organic farm, practice with Cuban yogis, learn salsa, visit the mountains so see a self sustaining artist community, and much much more.
To meet U.S. Treasury Department requirements, this 6-night/7-day itinerary will include a full schedule of cultural events, which we'll balance with plenty of time for beaches and Havana nightlife!
During the retreat, the Godfather of Cuban yoga, Eduardo Pimentel, will be a featured instructor. Pimentel has trained more than 12,000 yoga practitioners while aiming to develop a prominent Vipassana community in Havana. Eduardo has taught many Cubans about yoga and has even been featured on national television. You can find out more about Eduardo in this mini-doc about his life and mission.
We will stay about 15 miles east of Havana at the sweet Mhai Yoga retreat center. The staff is even sweeter than the beach. This is an incredible trip that includes
- Locally sourced, personally prepared organic meals
- Air conditioned rooms, many with ocean views
- All activities and transportation in Cuba
- A full schedule of meaningful activities
- Gorgeous beach and pool access.
- 2 yoga classes daily with Tim and Eduardo
- Available spa services and treatments.
- Life changing Cuban magic.
Due to recent changes enacted by the White House, we will be required to make use of a third party firm with Treasury department licensing to keep our travel legal. I have reduced my pricing and so as Mhai in order to help defray some of these costs. There is still hope we will be able to get around this additional charge- but its best to budget for it.

Reserve your spot with a deposit of $500 here. Balance in full will be due Nov 1st.
This is not the trip for everyone. You will have the very best of what Cuba has to offer, but by American standards this can feel a little spartan. It is a beautiful opportunity to navigate the difference between needs and wants. Please direct questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have concerns.
