Women’s Yoga, Drum & Dance Intensives


Celebrate Cuba’s Rhythm and Culture in beautiful Trinidad

With Cheri Shanti

Breathe-in the joy and empowerment of sisterhood in this drumming, dance and yoga journey for women in Trinidad, Cuba. The intensive experience is designed for women seeking escape from the daily humdrum and surrender to the total bliss brought forth by Cuban music. 4, 6 and 8-day interactive group experiences may be enjoyed on their own or combined with our renown cultural tours in Havana and beyond


Cheri is the founder of Wild & Wise, Lifestyle Design for Women. Cheri’s love affair with Cuba started many years ago as an outgrowth from her path as a ceremonial and professional percussionist in the U.S. The drum path led Cheri first to Cuba to study drumming, then dancing. She quickly fell in love with the remarkable, resilient Cuban people and the culture; her passion now is to share her Cuba discoveries with others. Cheri’s personal connections with the people enhance the uniqueness of the experiences under her guidance.

Author of four books, including “The Breath of Cuba: One Woman’s Love Affair with Cuba,” Cheri Shanti creates unique transformational experiences for individuals and communities around the world beginning in 2004. She earned a Master’s in teaching personal transformations via the expressive arts of yoga, dance and percussion. As a musician, teacher, dancer, poet and yoga disciple, Cheri uses these techniques to create team-building for participants that strengthen the individual soul path.


Cheri’s work also includes life coaching sessions empowering individuals to maximize their potential through self-development, spiritual learning, time in nature and the expressive arts of drumming and dancing.




Trinidad (est. 1514) is famous for attracting Afro-Cuban performers from all parts of Cuba. The music starts daily at 9 a.m., if one wishes she can dance the sun any day of the week. With natural beauty so accessible, travelers can also enjoy local excursions including horseback rides, hiking, bike rides to beautiful waterfalls, snorkeling or scuba in crystal clear seas, and sunsets on the terraza with nights spent dancing to traditional and folkloric Cuban music, reggaeton and rhumba.
