Explore Cuba

The lesson to take from Cuba, is that of happiness with the present moment. The people are always laughing, dancing, making the most of every situation, and hopefully after a week retreat to Cuba, you will too!

The Experience

  • The purpose of this retreat is to practice Yoga with a loving community, connect with the people of Cuba and understand the Yoga practice that extends far off the mat. Our mission of practicing poses, breath and mindfulness on the mat, is to share this awareness beyond just the yoga shala. Daily intentions, mantras and offerings will be encouraged to support your Yoga practice on & off the mat.
  • In collaboration with the Cuban Yoga community, we will practice Yoga with Eduardo Pimentel, the father of Yoga in Cuba, to learn about the history of Yoga in Cuba and have the opportunity to connect with Eduardo and his students.
  • Expect lots of time to rest and play, youโ€™ll be given the opportunity to participate in cultural offerings like salsa dancing, cuban cigar rolling, horseback riding & vintage convertible rides. You'll also the option to sit back and relax, completely designing the retreat week you desire.
  • This retreat provides an authentic experience to connect with the true island lifestyle. The island culture, organic food movement and white-sand beaches are a few reasons you may never want to leave Cuba, but what will end up capturing your heart is the people.

Ryann believes that yoga has the power to positively transform our lives. She earned her 200 hour yoga teaching certification while living and studying in an ashram in Mysore, India. She traveled to the birthplace of yoga in search of a traditional and authentic yoga education and experience. Once back in the states she became a full time yoga teacher and never looked back. 

She teaches a Hatha inspired class with an emphasis on breath, awareness, and body control. She aims to make each class feel steeped in Indian tradition and lineage. After a few years of teaching she decided that it was time to drive deeper into the transformational healing side of yoga and expand her knowledge as a teacher and student. She earned her 500 hour teaching certification in the magical jungles of Costa Rica with Passion Yoga.

Since her time in the jungle Ryann still teaches classes full time and teaches in yoga teacher trainings. Her path also led her to Fascial Stretch Therapy(fst) as a way to help speed the physical healing/recovery process and flexibility that yoga offers. With yoga and FST Ryann has a passion to guide people towards a more connected, positive, and healthy life.
