When I came to the island I really hoped I would find more places for yoga than in Cartagena though I hadn´t much luck searching in google. Still I believed to see some local signs of small studios – which wasn´t the case.
When I talked to the people, I found out the following: for strangers it is quite difficult to open their own business in the island as they try to protect the locals (which is a good thing by the way). Being said that, another strong factor is their religion. I heared from more than one person, they are extrenely catholic and as yoga “has some kind of base within Hinduism and Buddhism – they won´t practice it”. Strangers properly would – but if you don´t have a space to practice, yoga is actually only practiced by few in their own houses. Which is a pity having the view of those beautiful beaches. But like this one must just practice for oneself.
