About this trip

Susan Meymand (200 E-RYT), a phenomenal yoga teacher from Dallas, Texas is providing this amazing Cuban life meets yoga experience this January! About Susan:

"I am in no hurry to get people balancing on their hands or standing on their heads.  Those advancements become available when the time is right, and when they are needed, not out of forcing.  There is no rush.  I prefer to build in an intelligent, purposeful way, creating strength and freedom from the inside out.  That’s not to say that my classes are not challenging.  They most definitely are.  But just in a more smoldering, deep way, not in a ‘hey look at me!’ way.

I love bringing people together, providing a space and time where people can actually connect, have a meaningful exchange, and feel a fullness in their heart as a result.  And what other better place to come together than in Cuba?  It’s hard to define, but there is just something especially enchanting about this country.  The people are genuinely welcoming, the music is incredible, the scenery beautiful, and the dancing is out of this world!

So, please come to Cuba with us!  You may know no one when you arrive, but you will have new friends in no time, and that in itself is a treasure.  Let me help you connect with your own inner self through yoga and meditation, so that you can connect with the world around you in a deeper, more meaningful way, and live the fullness of life that awaits you."

Guest teachers include Janan Araujo-Siam (200-RYT and Baptiste Tier One Certified) from Houston and Eduardo Pimentel (Iyengar-trained master) from Havana, Cuba.
