HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR ANNUAL RETREAT TO CUBA: Havana, Vinales & Cayo Jutia
This special island that has been for so long been kept a secret from so many of us has quickly become a YFBP gem. We are completely enthralled with the magic and passion of this beautiful place. We are in awe of it’s people’s ingenuity and perseverance.
We have had the honor to now visit three times and are planned to return in December 2016.
Our last visit was yet another deep dive into the culture by way of yoga and a willingness to wander. Lead by Heather Lilleston and Stephanie Wang along side our brilliant home team of Cuba Educational Travel.
The group photos that happen at this beach are never short of amazing. NEVER.

Very likely our favorite visit of Havana is the Lizt Alfonso Dance Academy. These hard working, dedicated kids always grace us with the most profound performances every time.
Here, Heather gives back with a little yoga moment for the Alfonso squad.
