Come indulge with Mother Nature for a life time experience, with Anahata Eco Yoga Retreats in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

Join us on this 5-days, 4 nights yoga, wellness, and adventure retreat opened to all levels of yoga practitioners.

Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a mystical and exotic region declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. It is the land of the Arhuaco, Kogi, Wiwa, and Kankuamo indigenous tribes who through daily meditations and rituals maintain their deep commitment to restoring the balance between the spiritual and the ecological world.

Through the practice of self-love, yoga, meditation, sound baths, kirtan, sacred ceremonies, organic food, daily excursions, and wellness treatments we will heal and recharge. We will also learn about the culture of the Wiwas and explore the jungle, waterfalls, sacred lagoons and mysterious rivers.

Playa Koralia

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta has an ecosystem unlike any other. Reaching a height of nearly 19,000 feet, this multi-peaked volcanic massif is the world’s highest coastal mountain. There are multiple ecological zones; wetlands and mangroves along the coast, tropical rain forests, deserts, alpine tundra, and finally at the top are the snow-capped peaks. Thousands of plants and animal species have been found here, including 628 bird species—about as many as in the United States and Canada combined.

Playa Koralia is an eco-chic luxury hotel located on a virgin seashore where the snowcapped Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta tumbles into the the Caribbean Sea. It is one of the dreamiest and most secluded beaches on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.

There are 17 bungalows dotted around Koralia’s grounds with relaxing hammock-strewn porches. Cabins have a touch of rustic jungle romance with open roofed- bathrooms allowing a great perspective of the Sierra Nevada’s starry nights.

Enjoy dining amongst the leafy palm trees in Koralia's open-air dining space and experience the richest and highest quality natural flavors. An organic farm feeds the gastronomic restaurant’s menu.

Playa Koralia prides itself on being the only Sustainable Certified hotel in Colombia.

“The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness.”

Sakyong Mipham

Morning Sun practice
led by Shayne Cohen

Vinyasa Yoga is an energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while synchronizing their breath to their movements. Shayne’s classes integrate a dynamic flow with the application of precise alignment, meditation, visualization, intention and chanting to create an inner journey towards healing and empowerment.

Classes begin with chanting to prepare the mind for a deeper state of consciousness and meditation during asanas (physical practice.) Shayne likes her students to recognize yoga as a sacred practice, she believes if it’s not devotional then it’s not yoga. Each class is designed to systematically stimulate the organs, glands, nervous system and move freshly oxygenated blood to the entire body as you release tension and simultaneously develop faith and intuition.

Daily Excursions
e.g. Pozo Sagrado

Thanks to a special permit from its inhabitants, guests of Playa Koralia can discover a true natural treasure forbidden to mass tourism.

This magical Pozo Sagrado is reached after an easy hike into an indigenous reservation. You will encounter multicolored fish that swim in these cold waters and discover beautiful waterfalls where you will experience a hydrotherapy like no other.

Evening Moon Practice

Mind Body Sound Bath Yoga

Designed for all levels. It can be described as a Ying Yang Yoga class with a mix of Hatha. You will experience a beautiful combination of stress relief and deep stretching engaging not just your body but your mind and spirit as well. Class will finish with a sound bath awakening a sense of love and devotion.

Sacred Ceremonies

Kirtan is a sing along of mantras, through which we find our way back to our core, our heart and our relationships with each other.

Chanting mantras connect us with the spiritual wisdom. These ancient chants contain a transformative power and healing energy. We will sing, drum and dance to express our love and devotion.
