Culture and Yoga Immersion to Cuba with Seane Corn
Saturday April 16th – Saturday April 23rd, 2016
With Seane Corn
Join Seane Corn this coming April on a unique journey, a Culture and Yoga Immersion to Havana, Cuba! We will spend the week stretching our boundaries, learning about the art, dance, music, history, social justice and politics within this “off-limits” island. Prepare to absorb and grow. We will weave daily yoga into this journey through one of the most fascinating cities in the world! Engage with and come to understand the Cuban people and walk away with a deeper understanding of Cuba’s story – past, present and future.
Satya Retreats is excited to offer this unique cultural immersion in collaboration with Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation. Satya Retreats and Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation (CCJF) are partnering to create a personal and transformative experience that will last a lifetime.
Since 1998, Cross Cultural Journeys Foundation has offered legal People-to-People experiences in Cuba. During this time they have built meaningful relationships with local organizations, NGOs (non-governmental organizations) artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, doctors, architects and everyday citizens.
We are thrilled to be offering this very special immersion, combining Cuba’s rich culture and history with Seane’s gifted yoga teachings!
