" Let Go - Colombia - Yoga Retreat surpassed my expectations. At the risk of sounding cliche, the five day experience truly did change my life. Andres is highly educated in the four paths of yoga. He is a brilliant teacher with a grounded and gentle approach, for a well rounded and balanced experience. Gitana Del Mar is a resort unlike any other in the heart of the world. I highly recommend the spa treatments. I look forward to the next retreat." - Megan O'Bannon
