ESCAPE TO SHAPE takes you on an exclusive & magical journey to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, considered by many the gem of South America. Each six-night session is limited to a maximum of 17 guests, so that each person receives the attention and quality of service they deserve. Join us and experience the charm and sophistication of this 500 year old Spanish colonial walled city, uniquely located on the Caribbean ocean; a combination of luxurious accommodations, daily yoga and exercise classes, rich Spanish traditions, narrow cobblestone streets lined with impressive architecture and splashed with cafes, restaurants, boutiques and artisans, grand cathedrals & plazas full of life. Additionally, experience the natural beauty of Cartagena, set on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea, with its long strands of sandy beach, lush vegetation, exotic fruits and palm lined islands just miles off the shore. Guests will also enjoy relaxing massages, Salsa dancing lessons, Spanish language lessons and cooking classes on how to prepare traditional Colombian favorites at home, yet with an ESCAPE TO SHAPE, healthy twist.
While in Cartagena, ESCAPE TO SHAPE offers guests a rare opportunity to stay in an exclusive 16th century restored mansion within the colonial city walls. Imagine walking out the heavy wood doors into the narrow balcony lined, seductive streets of colonial Cartagena, steps away from famed author Gabriel Garcia Marquez's home and haunts. Traditionally decorated with a swimming pool in the courtyard center and many rooftop terraces designed to soak in the sun as well as the magnificent skyline of church domes, bell towers and the Caribbean Sea, a stay in this private home is a unique experience in and of itself. Complete with spacious suites, numerous balconies and terraces overlooking the cobble stoned Cartagena streets and lots of indoor and outdoor space ideal for practicing and inspiring each yoga and exercise practice.
