Y&AWW HIGHLIGHT: Cuba Yoga Retreat + Art
November 6-11, 2018 in Cuba

Our Yoga + Art Retreat is a new creative retreat collaboration taking place in Havana, Cuba with a group of inspirational women who have been longtime friends and travel companions around the globe. Together we will step back to an era of luxurious mansions and colorful vintage automobiles, with the distinctive clave and timbale rhythms putting a swing in your every step. And yet, for all of its faded retro charm, Cuba has a decidedly youthful, modern face as well, with über hip art galleries and restaurants.

Darcy Vasudev is the founder and artist at Henna Lounge based in Oakland, California who will be leading our creative process in Havana through henna adornment, photo tutorials, and painting workshops with local artists on the ground.
Aimee Martinez is the founder of Colectivo ART based in Los Angeles with her finger on the artistic pulse in Cuba. She will be curating our art experiences through gallery and museum visits and artist introductions and studio tours in Havana.
