New Years Week Yoga Retreat in Buritaca, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia Yoga Retreat with Dr. Ariele Foster

Fill your heart up to the rim. 

I’m so excited to announce this New Year’s Week beachfront eco-yoga retreat on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. My love for Latin America runs deep and I cannot wait to adventure southward. Please join me for a renewal 😉 week dedicated to profound body and spirit wellness Dec 30, 2018-Jan 5th, 2019.

There’s something else that makes this retreat so very special: our afternoon practices will emphasize self myofascial release, a practice that deeply compliments yoga asana, but is in itself a skill of self-care that will enhance the rest of your life.

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

-Mark Twain

At this movie-set-like, magical Caribbean beachfront, surrounded by stunning, snow-capped mountains and the nearby Tayrona National Park, your days will be filled with vibrant yoga, mantra, meditation, self-care and self-myofascial release.

Soak in the energy and rejuvenate in the sacred elements of sun, earth, sand, sweat, and cacao. Oh, and totally delicious food.


Because the best things in life aren’t things.

The hidden little town of Buritaca lays to the east of Tayrona National Park, where the fresh water Buritaka River empties into the crystal clear Caribbean sea.

We will stay in eco-chic bungalows, each individually designed, with hand-made traditional palm-leaf roofs made from sustainably and locally harvested palm fronds.

Each bungalow has its own private bathroom and semi-outdoor shower.

Our yoga practice shala is open on three sides to the view of the ocean and palm trees. We will fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean, and take dips in either salt water or the pool.



Feast three times a day on locally-sourced, gourmet Sea-to-Table meals. The menu is fusion-style (Colombian, Latin and Asian flavors), integrating the most local ingredients available, including fruit, veggies and herbs from the retreat center’s own gardens and fresh-caught fish and seafood from regional fisherman.

Fresh, tropical juices will be available and may include: Passion Fruit, Star fruit, Guava, Lulo, Mango, Pineapple, etc. Bottled water, coffee and tea will also be available.

The kitchen can accommodate any vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and allergy needs.


In addition to twice-daily yoga, activities (free of charge) include: pool, use of paddleboards, hammocks, beach-time.

Massage & Therapeutic baths and scrubs are available in the retreat spa for additional price.
