Note from Gisella 

Hi guys,  I am so excited to share this special Samba Retreat opportunity with you! 

We will be dancing Samba in the heart of Brazil's Carnaval, visiting the Samba Schools and experiencing the culture, people, places and spirit of this gorgeous land. 

People often ask me if it's safe to travel to Rio. And my answer is, it's not, unless you have someone to show you around that knows the ins and outs. That is one of the reasons I have put this trip together. I would love to help people be able to experience the beautiful spirit of Rio's Samba and to feel safe and be able to enjoy the full experience. 

I am also very passionate about this trip because we will be doing energy healing, inner study and bringing intention to our Samba as our connection to our dance deepens. 

I would love to show you the best of Rio. Come join me on the adventure of a lifetime  in the beautiful land of Samba!
