What Others Are Saying
“I am an avid traveler and have wanted to experience Cuba for years. I was excited to find Life Force Project, which combined my love of yoga and passion for adventure and new cultures. The experience exceeded all my wildest expectations! Consider this: beautiful sugar-sand beaches, dancing at the Havana Social Club, street art and Rumba, deliciously prepared fresh food everywhere, horseback riding, a cigar plantation, yoga every day, in the mountains and on the beach – and all in one incredible week. Our instructors were truly gifted teachers and our Cuban guide made sure every experience was authentic. We became a close-knit group of travelers and I keep in touch with the friends I made on this adventure. You need to go on this amazing trip!”

“The yoga, activities, and food were well planned and everything fell into place very gracefully. I was present, graceful, relaxed, and at peace, which typically does not come easily to me. The yoga practices were well planned and incredibly therapeutic. I learned a lot about myself, let go of some tough stuff, and feel lighter.”
- Sarah Kelly, Porchlight Realty (Colorado)
“This was just amazing. My first time to experience this and with no doubt, I want to do this again and again. I experienced positive energies and it shifted the way I think about things and my life. I definitely wan to practice this more and more.”

"The entire weekend was inspiring and insightful. The retreat house was magnificent with beautiful views of the water, and a great layout to allow for group intimacy and separateness[if desired]. Jon was a compelling teacher who invited the group to embrace difficult concepts which he made accessible and understandable. He was always available for individual discussions if questions arose. I appreciated his passion and the depth of knowledge about the subject. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Paige, went out of her way to respond to each individual 's dietary needs and incorporate them into her menu. The attention to detail in that regard was extraordinary. The paddleboarding and kayaking made for a welcome break, and allowed members a great opportunity to metabolize the complex concepts they were integrating.The weekend flowed beautifully. It was restorative and uplifting."

David is a great soul and Life Force will certainly bring you one step closer towards enlightenment."

"On yoga retreat with Life Force, I was given the space and inspiration to free myself from any imposed or perceived limitations of myself. I was surrounded by boundless nature and souls that seek to manifest their truest and purest forms. In a sherbet sunset yoga session, with flocks of parrots flying over head, whilst climbing physical and metaphorical mountains, I found myself at the top, looking around me... in community of other truth seekers, filled with love.... I tapped into my own heart's desires and the fear, intimidation, paralysis, and insecurity I had felt in my daily routine floated away with the high mountain clouds... It cleared space in my mind's eye, in my spirit to dream the big dream that has always been inside of me. It grew and it spoke to me and I listened... the only difference is I now believe in it. I believe in myself and my decision making abilities, my capabilities and the true freedom of taking a leap of faith... a leap into the unknown that will show what I need to see. I don't want to live in fear anymore, I don't want my doubts to keep me stagnant. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am forever changed and forever grateful! Namaste!"
-Erin, Yoga Teacher
"The nursing profession is both fulfilling and exhausting. So it's critical to figure out how to do self care. The retreat in Nicaragua made it very easy. The food was fresh, delicious and healthy. The yoga instructors were excellent. I learned how to surf! I appreciated having all the details and arrangements managed. It provided a pleasant sense of security. The retreat really allowed me to relax and recharge. I returned to my job with a fresh perspective and more energy. I'm so grateful to Life Force for the retreat."
