A cultural, yogi adventure of "green medicine"
with Christine Chen & Will Schneider
Join us at Mhai Yoga, a beach town retreat center near Playa Megano and Playas del Este, 30 minutes from Havana. Discover a totally different experience for your practice in a place that calls yoga "green medicine" - a place where yoga is only allowed to exist as an alternative medicine.
We'll enjoy practice and organic meals together, mixed in with locally-scheduled Havana day trips and cultural exploration in Support of the Cuban People.
We will also practice with Eduardo Pimentel, the "godfather" of Cuban yoga (pictured).

good to know...
Prior to the retreat we will send out an email with all the information you will need. Below are some answers to the most frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
LEGALLY ENTERING TO CUBA
We are travelling to Cuba with a General License in the ‘support for the Cuban people’ category.
As a part of our retreat we will be doing a yoga practice with Eduardo Pimentel. In addition to being an absolutely amazing opportunity, this also is how we are able to support the Cuban people. We will also be partaking in community tours and other activities led by local Cuban residents. Some of these activities will cost a little extra.
We will provide you with documentation to present at Customs on your way back to the U.S. to prove your travel was legal.
CUBAN TOURIST CARD
Airlines should provide you with the necessary Cuban tourist card before you embark (double-check when booking). Prices range from US$50 to US$100 depending on the airline.
If you are an American citizen, it is requested that you arrive with the cash you will need for the trip as you are currently UNABLE to withdraw money with American credit or debit cards. You can use USD or Euros to pay for activities at our Mhai Yoga Retreat Center, however, outside of Mhai you will need to pay with CUC. There is a fee for exchanging in Cuba, so decide when and how much you will exchange. You will need CUC to facilitate any transactions off-site.
