The conscious she retreat, January 11-19, 2020 

Girl power yoga in ColOmbia with Gopi 

Unite with fellow women to combine and strengthen our SHE power. Led by Bhakti Yoga DC founder Gopi Kinnicutt, we’ll enjoy yoga by the ocean, meditation, hiking and interactive group experiences to awaken our individual feminine strength and healing wisdom. 

3 days in Cali: Stay at the beautiful Shyam Ashram, a sanctuary just outside the city of Cali. At this oasis, the tropical wildlife becomes part of your happy place. From here we will venture out into the tropical forest, hiking and swimming in local springs and rivers, sharing, laughing and embracing our spiritual inner journey and SHE power. We’ll also spend a day in the city of Cali, a great place to shop for treasures, salsa dance, and eat good food as we tune into our feminine shakti, bonding, fun and excitement.

5 days on Providencia island: Experience clear blue water, snorkeling and the wonders of marine life. We’ll stay at the oceanfront Hotel Cabañas Agua Dulce, wake up to the sounds of roliing waves and practice yoga with sea breeze and sun. Providencia is a somewhat deserted part of Colombia’s coastal beauty, two short flights away from Cali (Cali to San Andres then to Providencia, flights included in trip). We’ll have time to unplug from the demands of city life and embark on a soul journey with fellow women. Each day will consist of deep healing yoga both morning and evening (varying between vinyasa flow, yin, yoga nidra and dynamic restorative yoga), silent and mantra meditation practice and self-exploration workshops. We’ll also swim and snorkel, enjoy good vegetarian food, laugh, shop and sunbathe. At the end of our time in Providencia, we’ll return to Cali International Airport (domestic flights included in trip package).

This trip will allow you to experience some of the beauty of Colombia: its culture, art, people, food and scenery from forest land to clear blue ocean. More importantly, it will connect you to your own feminine soul and introduce you to other beautiful kindred spirits. Make friends, strengthen your yoga practice and refresh your spirit!
