yoga & adventures worldwide offers legal travel to Cuba for US citizens, one of the locations nearest and dearest to their heart over the past several years. The newly opened privatization of the island has blessed Havana and beyond with a deep expression of the underlying creative pulse that defines Cuba. It is our deepest desire to support this expansion for the Cuban people and to do all we can to help them grow as a culture and gain independence as a community.

Our yoga retreat in Cuba offer an insiders look at history, art, culture, music, and expression from a local’s perspective. Our itinerary is filled with Q&As with historians, art gallery and studio visits, yoga exchanges with local teachers and students in our classes, donations to local organizations working to aide families in need from natural disasters to economic hardships, and workshops in music and dance from Cuban Salsa to Ballet.

We’ll explore the city of Havana re-emerging as one of the hottest cultural centers in the world, loaded with rich history, incredible music, art, amazing food, charming people, and lots of soul with locals supporting locals. Adventurers will also explore beyond the city to the countryside for hiking, birding and eating more amazing food!
