Yoga in Cartagena de las Indias

My first stop in Colombia was in Cartagena de las Indias, situated on the Carribean coast, 1,5 hours away from Bogota by airplane.

If you are looking for a city where to test out several yoga studies, Cartagena isn´t your best choice. After googling (were you will find outdated information of studios that don´t exist anymore) and talking to several people I had to accept that there is no more than one place in the center (in the old town) were you can do yoga.

Sanctuario de Yoga

The place is called Sanctuario de Yoga were you get also a super cheap and tasty lunch menu every day between 12-3pm for only 5.500 COP. It includes a drink, a soup and a main dish, all vegeterian.

The direction is 16, Cl. 38 #5, Cartagena, Bolívar.

Yoga classes are from Monday to Friday at 8am and 5pm, price is 15.000 – just show up in case you would like to assit. Classes are about 1 hour and are based on the tradition of Inbound Yoga.
Also nice and following the same set of asanas is the Park Yoga on Sundays at 10am. The cost is what you would like to donate. The park is called Parque de la Marina.

In case you pass through Cartagena, it´s worth giving it a try as it´s quite an authentic place. If you prefer, you can also do your own practice. I usually went to the city wall where you will be able to find some shadow early morning.
