Colombia

Yoga in Colombia

In Colombia you will experience the true meaning of diversity: dense tropical rainforests, soaring Andean peaks and the only country on the continent to have both Caribbean and Atlantic coastlines, Colombia offers visitors a bounty of ecosystems and experiences. Vastly improved security and tourist infrastructure and a flourishing yoga and wellness scene make it a better time to visit than ever.

Your Yoga Guide for Colombia

There was a time when just visiting this magical country would have been ill-advised, but exploring and doing yoga in Colombia is now a perfectly reasonable proposition.

In the past, Colombia developed the unfortunate reputation of being a violent and troubled nation, a no-go zone for independent travelers and tourists. A lot has changed in recent years, however, and as the country rebuilds itself, people who choose to explore it will be rewarded with stunning landscapes, resplendent colonial architecture and warm hospitality.

More Infos about yoga in Colombia

Many visitors to the country gravitate to the Caribbean coast, and for good reason. White sands, clear waters and great opportunities for diving, chilling in a hammock or deepening your practice on a yoga retreat await in this beautiful part of Colombia. To complement the beaches, the city of Cartagena boasts extensive and well-preserved examples of Spanish era architecture within its 16th-century walled city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

However, the biggest yoga community is to be found in Colombia’s vast, high-altitude capital city, Bogota. Yoga in Bogota is growing with studios constantly popping up all over the city, offering the widest variety of yoga classes in Colombia. Indeed, a local organization has started an initiative to bring yoga to both the victims and perpetrators of Colombia’s civil war. Dunna: Creative Alternatives for Peace, offers classes and teacher training to ex-paramilitary group members, and the people who were caught up in their violence, in an attempt further the reconciliation effort.

Colombia is one the world’s largest coffee producers and it is highly likely that at some point the beans in your morning pick-me-up started their journey in the Zona Cafetera. If you want to get closer to the source, there are now various accommodation options for yoga vacations and retreats in the heart of Colombia’s coffee growing region, in the Northwest of the country.

Yoga retreats / holidays in Colombia

Whether it’s beachfront or jungle, there are a variety of yoga retreats in Colombia.

If you want to get back to basics, the El Matuy retreat promises an electricity-free yoga experience. That means doing your asanas by candlelight and truly connecting to your body and the environment, in a beautiful beachside location.

The cool mountain air and lush forests of the Sierra Nevada Mountains provide an ideal setting for a yoga retreat at Aloha Ke Akua. When you’re not on the mat, trekking, waterfalls and locally harvested coffee are all waiting for you.

For a more urban experience, the Yogendra Ashram is in close proximity to bohemian Cali and offers Acro yoga and yoga teacher training courses.

What Yogis should know about Colombia

Yogis with a penchant for more adrenaline fuelled activities will want to head to San Gil, Colombia’s outdoor sports capital. Activities here include white-water rafting, paragliding, caving, and trekking. Once you get your fill of high-octane excursions, head to Barichara, one the country’s most picturesque towns, replete with cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and red-tiled roofs.
