About the place

Our yoga retreat in Colombia is located on the shores of the Caribbean Sea. The resort lies at the foothills of the impressive and magical Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the world’s highest Coastal Mountain Range. This area is referred to as the Heart of the world, not only because of it’s geographical location, but more importantly because every single ecosystem exists and thrives in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is here in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada, nestled under the shade of majestic coconut palms is a place where you can disconnect from the hectic world and appreciate the simpler things in life. Find harmony with mother earth as she offers up the sun, empty virgin beaches, fresh salt air and unforgettable panoramic seascapes. Gitana del Mar is a relaxing world where time moves slowly and you can reflect and appreciate all that life and nature have to give. Escape for a while to life by the sea. Feel the raw energy of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Discover peace on empty, white sand beaches. Rise with the sun over the Caribbean and fall asleep counting falling stars in the Milky Way. Indigenous Cultures Protecting the Heart of the World The four existing indigenous tribes (Kogi, Wiwa, Arhuaco and Kankuamo people) are ancestors of the pre-Hispanic Civilization, known as the Tayrona. They still practice and follow the Tayrona belief of “Aluna”, which is the belief that all reality is created by thought. Every object or being has both a spiritual aspect and a physical reality, both of which originate in thought. These people have been calling the Sierra Nevada Mountains their home for hundreds of years. They refer to this area as “The Heart of the World” because they believe that what happens in the Sierra Nevada also happens everywhere in the world. They are committed to restoring the equilibrium to Earth by daily ritual practices, mental discipline and meditations. All of their efforts are to help protect the Sierra Nevada and the world from destruction. They have plenty to protect, including multiple ecosystems, such as: wetlands, mangroves, tropical rain forests, desert, alpine tundra and finally reaching snow capped mountains at the summit. Through all these varied ecosystems, thousands of species of plants and animals have been identified, including dozens of which can only be found here. For example, almost 630 different bird species have been identified here, more than the US and Canada combined. Many rivers also flow from the mountains, including three large ones that empty the some of the freshest water in the world right onto our beaches. These stunning rivers are all within a 15 minute drive from the property and provide fun adventures, calming fresh water and breathtaking vistas. Our Eco-Chic Bungalows are the ideal place to relax. Each bungalow is designed with a very distinct architectural feature that the indigenous from the area have been utilizing for hundreds of years…. the palm roof. Not only are these structures made from sustainably and locally harvested palm fronds, the vaulted ceiling design keeps the rooms cooler and more fresh than any other available, man-made material. Let the soothing sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep after a full day on the beach and exploring the area. Our simple, clean and comfortable rooms are equipped with full private bathrooms, outdoor showers*, fans*, down pillows and plush sheets and towels.

Instructors

Chelsey Korus
Chelsey Korus’ teaching and movement philosophy comes from her passion for life and her inspiring nature that allows her students to live their best life. As a perennial student herself, she approaches her life through the lens of constant learning and is able to share her wisdom to help other achieve their brightest and best futures. A notable yoga instructor based in Los Angeles, Chelsey infuses her classes with the movement knowledge she has gained through over a decade of alignment-based yoga asana immersion, classical ballet, capoeira, and daily acrobatic training. Her powerful yet down-to-earth approachability is a compelling combination that has landed her on Live! with Kelly and Michael and PopSugar as well as Fitness, Shape, and Women’s Health Magazines. Having traveled the world as an AcroYoga performer, Chelsey is looking forward to the blend of movement, culture, and spiritual studies that have yet to unfold. “Practice and all is coming.” Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Chelsey is grateful for her training from numerous guides on her path, including the teachers and students at Vira Yoga NYC, NYU’s CAP21 program, Capoeira and Ballet schools all over the U.S, and master Lu Yi. She continually immerses herself in the practices of martial arts, classical and modern dance, gymnastics, and acrobatics, and brings aspects of these styles to every class she teaches. Chelsey has become a renowned name in the Acro Yoga world, taking it from the streets of New York City to international performance venues, commercials, print work, and corporate events. Clients include Wanderlust Festivals, Mercedes Benz fashion shows with Venus Williams and Vivienne Tam, Under Armour, and Intel. Over the course of her fitness and modeling career, she has been featured on PopSugar and the Kelly and Michael Show, and in Prevention Magazine, Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, Women’s Health, Yoga Journal, and GNC’s “Respect Yourself” campaign.

    "Wondeful Retreats! "
    "I left the retreat refreshed. Loved the Yoga sessions they energized me for the day and relaxed me for the night. The teacher Shannon and Micah were amazing in that I lost myself in the yoga and the fabulous surrounding. The food was plentiful and very yummy. As a first time rock climber I was exhilarated to make it to the top of a tricky climb that I thought was far out of my skill. But the instructor talked me through step by step and I made it to the top. And the group was wonderful." - From Yogascapes Facebook page

    "Fantastic yoga experiences"
    Deciding to attend the Women’s Spring Awakening retreat, was probably the best decision I have ever made for myself. Never have I felt so rawly accepted for who I was down to my core. Any woman would benefit from this retreat. - From Yogascapes Testimonials page

    "I had a life changing week of pilgrimage in Scotland with Yogascapes and am most grateful. You are paying for a quality that goes beyond comfort and security in travel but provides a spiritually enriching experience that is priceless. Thank you to our teacher Abby Tucker and to our Yogascapes guide Hayley Ebersole for creating something more magical than I could have ever imagined." - From Yogascapes Facebook page
