WHO IS WELCOME?

Le Flaneur Urban Retreats are designed to welcome all levels of Yogis and artists, from beginners to advanced.  Jennifer's unique program is adaptable for everyone from working artists to those curious about exploring their creative sides: travellers, explorers, flaneurs. If you've ever wondered about yoga, meditation, art, painting, photography, arts and culture or just looking for an authentic place to experience and relax at the same time, this Cuban retreat is for you.

WHY CUBA?

Cuba is truly authentic.  A city frozen in time.  It forces you to disconnect from the high pace hustle and bustle, to reconnect with yourself, others and everything happening " real time".  It's the perfect place to be a flaneur- an observer, as life moves slower here, giving you that much needed chance to catch your breath to enjoy each experience for what it is.  The people are vibrant, beautiful and truly genuine.  They hide behind nothing, revealing their true colours.  History is written on their faces, on the buildings you pass, the places you stay, the cars you ride in, the music you hear, the art and Culture you see. It's all there, alive and beautiful. Then their are the natural attractions.  Which Cuba has always been known for.  The sun, the clear blue waters, the white sandy beaches, mountains and lush valleys.  I believe Cuba has something for everyone, from the outdoor enthusiasts, explorers, artists, history buff, to the people who just want a quiet place to relax and check in.
