Yoga Retreats Colombia | The Best Colombia Yoga Retreats Reviewed

If you are looking for budget-friendly yoga retreats, Colombia is sure to tick a lot of your boxes. Not only is it one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to, but it is also one of the most spiritual. As it is still an up-and-coming yoga retreat destination your yoga retreat Colombia is likely to cost a lot less than anywhere else in the world.

I’ve chosen my favorite Colombia yoga retreats in Medellin, Bogota, and Cali. While you are in Colombia you really must do some traveling as it’s a magnificent country. You can read my Colombia travel itinerary here for inspiration.

Did You Get Travel Insurance Yet?

The Insurance companies I recommend are Hey Mondo and Safety Wing

Hey Mondo is great if you are looking for a great value flexible policy. They offer single-trip cover, annual multi-trip cover, and long-term travel cover. Safety Wing is great value, with monthly coverage starting at $39. It’s super easy to use, and it just renews each month. I currently use them as they offer me free cover for my son as part of my policy.

What To Pack For Your Yoga Retreat Colombia

Packing for a yoga retreat will depend on a few factors such as the location, duration, and activities planned during the retreat. However, here are some general items to consider bringing:

1. Comfortable yoga clothes: Pack comfortable clothes that you can move freely in. Depending on the weather, you may need layers or lighter clothing.

2. Yoga mat: Bring your own yoga mat if you have one. Some retreats may provide mats, but it’s always a good idea to bring your own.

3. Props: Depending on your yoga practice, you may need props such as blocks, straps, or blankets. Check with the retreat organizer to see if they provide these or if you should bring your own.

4. Water bottle: Staying hydrated is important, so bring a refillable water bottle that you can use throughout the day.

5. Snacks: While most retreats provide meals, you may want to bring some snacks to have between meals or during breaks.

6. Toiletries: Pack toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, and sunscreen. If you’re staying in shared accommodation, bring a towel and any other personal hygiene items you need.

7. Comfortable shoes: Pack comfortable shoes for walking or hiking, depending on the activities planned during the retreat.

8. Journal and pen: Many retreats include time for self-reflection, so bring a journal and pen to capture your thoughts and reflections.

9. Books or other reading material: If you have downtime between activities, you may want to bring a book or other reading material to unwind.

10. Travel adapter and charger: If you’re traveling to another country, don’t forget to bring a travel adapter and charger for your electronics.

Remember to check with the retreat organizer for a complete packing list and any specific items they recommend bringing for the retreat. And you can read my full yoga retreat packing list here or visit my Amazon list here.
