Meet Shayne Cohen and Adriana Vergara of Anahata Eco Yoga Retreats in North Miami

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shayne Cohen and Adriana Vergara.

Meet Shayne Cohen and Adriana Vergara, the Miami duo introducing wellness travel. The girls behind your dream rejuvenating getaway, “Anahata Eco Yoga Retreats.”

Shayne, the creative and spiritual leader, recently shifted careers having previously been Miami’s fashion guru owner of Oxygene Bal Harbour. Adriana, the organizational and logistics expert, is one of Miami’s top art consultants.

The powerful Colombian born women joined forces following their shared passion for yoga and wellness. Having met only a year ago during one of Shayne’s classes, their friendship and common interests grew and quickly developed into the traveling phenomenon that is slighted to roll out four retreats annually in exotic and secluded nature destinations around Colombia.

Anahata Eco Yoga Retreats was born serendipitously as Shayne and Adriana had each recently been to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and had fallen in love with this magical place, which until recently was not frequented by tourists and is considered to be one of the most raw and exotic areas in the world. It is a mystical region declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve and the land of four indigenous tribes who, through daily meditations and rituals, maintain their deep commitment to restoring the balance between the spiritual and the ecological world. In fact, the BBC recently launched a documentary showcasing it. The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a place to go inward and connect with nature: the perfect location for meditation, yoga, and eating clean.

Shayne’s 29 years experience practicing yoga and her full commitment to its spiritual path, began under the guidance of world-renowned Sri Dharma Mittra. Together with Adriana’s prowess for organizing memorable experiences proved to be the perfect combination needed to make this happen. Anahata Eco Yoga Retreat is a unique experience where mind and body meet in the heart of it all. The retreat attracts those seeking wellness and adventure.

The experience is designed to help you to take a step back and evaluate where you’re at from a distance. It’s an opportunity for healing your mental and physical health. It’s a digital detox and a time to connect with nature on a deeper level.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Anahata Eco Yoga Retreats – what should we know?
Throughout the year, Anahata keeps its community together through unique spiritual ceremonies in private residences and monthly Kirtan’s at The Sacred Space Miami. Kirtan is the practice of spiritual chants that leave you speechless. You let go. You cry. The chills flow through your spine.

For a local Anahata spiritual experience of yoga, meditation, and chanting of mantras, Shayne teaches Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday’s at The Sacred Space Miami.

The next retreat will take place from September 5th to the 9th.

Attendees range in age from 25 – 67.

A typical day looks something like this:
Yoga, always in the AM. Then, jump in jeeps for exciting adventures up in the jungle. Spend time learning from the indigenous people. A complete nature immersion of waterfalls and excursions down the river to the ocean. Gourmet plant-based foods. Evening yoga and a ceremony. Mandala’s in the sand. Sound Healing. Cacao ceremonies. Breathwork. Meditations. Daily spa treatments.

Their previous retreat was attended by many of our notables like the owner of the Sacred Space Karla Dascal, Bal Harbour Shops PR Carolyn Travis, Spiritual influencer Tara Benmeleh and many more.

What sets Anahata apart from other retreats is that we are 100% eco-friendly. We will only choose eco-friendly certified hotels. They provide a deep cultural exchange, an off-the-grid experience while being encouraged to follow a healthier organic farm-to-table vegetarian diet.
