RESET + CONNECT WEEK
YOGA & WELLNESS WEEK
6 - 11 NOVEMBER 2023
One of the biggest things missing from modern city life is a sense of community. So, we think any antidote to that should include some serious attention to connecting with other souls and the world around us.
Think of this like a yoga retreat, but for people that don't want to retreat. It's more like an opportunity to connect with a new culture and a new place at the same time as you take care of yourself.
ABOUT BIANCA DUSIC
"My goal, my passion, and my driving force is to help others feel seen and supported, to provide tools, resources and ultimately, to be a guide for others on their own journey toward inner peace and freedom."
We met our host Bianca, of bWithin, when she came to stay at Blue Apple Beach, and it was love at first sight. We are thrilled to welcome her back.
Past-Life Regression Therapist
Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner
Holistic Health Coach
WHAT'S IN STORE
Our purpose is to combine personal development with authentic cultural connection.
Bianca will run daily yoga practice and group sessions exploring breathwork, past life regression, emotional freedom technique (tapping) and therapeutic imagery.
Guests will also receive a one-on-one session with Bianca at a point during the week, to focus on a particular area.
Each evening, local specialists will join us for dinner and fireside chats on different aspects of Colombian culture, history and the arts, so that you can develop an informed sense of place.
The week also includes
a day trip to the stunning Rosario island archipelago in a private speedboat
a historical community led tour of the neighbouring village of Bocachica.
Blue Apple is an independent boutique hotel and beach club with eleven rooms, located on an island 20 minutes from Cartagena. We are on a quiet, sleepy beach, close to the village of Bocachica.
During the day, you'll see and meet people who visit Blue Apple for lunch and to enjoy a beach or poolside day. In mornings and evenings, the property will be exclusively for the RESET + CONNECT group.
The programme design allows space for additional activities (not included in the price) such as day trips to Cartagena city, horse treks around the island and scuba diving. Blue Apple is a PADI Dive Resort. If you are interested in doing your Open Water or another PADI certification, we can include it in the package.
There are 16 resident spaces for this week.
FOOD & DRINK
All meals and soft drinks are included in the price. Our talented Executive Chef, Pedro Mosqueda will prepare a special menu for the week, focussing on anti-inflammatory ingredients.
Menus to take into account dietary requirements, allergies and restrictions. We only serve ethical products which are sustainably produced. Most things on our menu are local and many of our herbs and leaves are grown in our own garden.
We understand that many people will be looking to give their bodies (and livers) a break, but just in case, we have a carefully curated wine list and all of our cocktails are made with local liquors and fresh fruit ingredients.
We don't want you to hide away. We want you to dive in.
