We're kicking things off in Cartagena, where the mix of modern and historical holds a unique charm. We'll explore the culinary, historic and cultural sides of the city while getting in our workouts! Then we're heading north along the Caribbean coast to Santa Marta. We'll soak up the sun and spend time in the one and only Tayrona National Park, the ideal hiking spot with the most beautiful beaches around!
Throughout the retreat, you will have daily workshops and movement sessions that are open to all fitness levels. These sessions will vary between Functional Bodyweight Training and Strength Training to build foundational movement, learn to prevent injury and build proper lifting form & technique. Also offered each day will be Breathwork - a powerful therapeutic practice designed to boost immunity and fuel presence - and/or other Restorative Practices to nurture recovery and relaxation.
We've got a week of unique local adventures and VIP experiences planned for you! In Cartagena, some of the highlights will be exploring the walled city, going salsa dancing and spending a day island hopping on our own boat through the Rosario Islands. In Santa Marta, we will hike through Tayrona National Natural Park, go horseback riding and explore the local cuisine! (All activities are optional).
With all the excitement and activities planned, there will also be plenty of free time to relax and chill. We will have beach days, free time to explore, try out some additional excursions or restaurants, or simply relax at our beautiful hotels.
