Join Susan Mondi Bowen for an unforgettable yoga retreat at Casa Alternavida in Puerto Rico!
Set in the heart of the El Yunque Rainforest, Casa Alternavida Retreat Center provides the perfect backdrop for yogis of all ages to explore renewal and transformation while connecting with nature.
Practice daily breathwork, yoga and meditation while overlooking a warm turquoise ocean. In Puerto Rico each day we will embark on thrilling adventure via activities such as a bioluminescent lake tour, afternoon trips to the beach, kayaking and paddle boarding, Afro Caribbean dance class and food tour of San Juan. (Puerto Rican cooking is somewhat similar to both Spanish and other Latin American cuisine, using indigenous seasonings and ingredients. Locals call their cuisine cocina criolla.) Join us for an incredible opportunity to experience yoga, natural adventure beach and renewal in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Located just off the Caribbean Sea, Puerto Rico is an unincorporated part of the US ( no passport needed), famous for its rich culture, lush landscapes, breathtaking beaches, and tropical climates.
