Retreats in Villa de Leyva, Colombia

The mountains and forests surrounding Villa de Leyva are perfect for hosting an intimate retreat. We can accommodate 10 participants in five modern double rooms, all with private bathroom. The group leader has his/her own accommodation in a separate small house. Communal Ayurvedic meals prepared with organic ingredients (mostly local) are enjoyed in the covered patio that overlooks our extensive gardens and orchard. We offer a wooden-floor, covered yoga room, a goddess temple for ceremonies, and two treatment rooms for massages and consultations.

This peaceful environment (only 3 hours from Bogota) is only altered by the sound of colorful birds and cowbells from surrounding small farms and our bull resident. During your stay, you will likely get to listen to the legends of the surrounding majestic mountains and nearby waterfalls and visit them if you wish. We sit on a very powerful energy vortex which is very conducive to meditation, healing and other spiritual practices.

We have been involved in the arts of healing and spirituality for more than 20 years. Ours is a non-dogmatic approach to life, which is suitable for everybody regardless of the beliefs or creed. Therefore, we offer you the following activities that you may use to spice up your retreat:
