Rest & Recharge at these Yoga Retreats
I spend at least 10% of my time at my desk job daydreaming about traveling (please don't tell my boss that though.) Usually, these dreams involve relaxing on some gorgeous coastline, practicing yoga, meditating, and just reconnecting to nature. These are the places I would do that at.

If This Wall Could Talk- Yoga on the Fortress Wall

Large arrow left

All those in the know know that Colombia has recently shed its illustrious past, emerging as a hotspot for the sophisticated traveler. And for good reason... from the grand colonial Spanish architecture to the charming cafe & boutique lined streets, the glorious private villas with balconies streaming with bougainvillea to the street plazas alive with salsa dancing & music, and the sultry Caribbean sunshine- Cartagena has something for everyone, all while maintaining its own identity.

... and then there is the wall. A rock-solid symbol of Cartagena's past - be it the conquoring of the Spaniards, the invasion of the Pirates, the days of Noriega or the endless people who have walked it over the past 400 + years, this wall has remained strong. And a sure way to be a part of this history is to bring your yoga mat to the wall at sunset and sweat it out...its also a sure way to get lots of attention, but, as you will quickly find out, the Colombian's are up for anything, anytime!
