MovNat Reconnect Retreat – San Rafael, Colombia


MovNat Reconnect:

A Fun and Regenerative Natural Movement® Immersion in Colombia, South America.

This is an all-inclusive event. Food, lodging, and transportation to and from the airport is included in the price.

Between the pandemic, quarantines, and hyper-digitalization of society, this past year has held a unique set of challenges for folks around the globe.

Many in our MovNat community have been able to maintain, and even gain, physical and mental resilience through their Natural Movement practice at home. And yet, we also know that fear, confinement, and disconnection have been dominating themes for many.

We’ve heard from family, friends, and our community, as well as experiencing it ourselves: These trends are putting new pressures on our personal, professional and interpersonal lives. It is with this awareness that we have created “MovNat Reconnect,” an expedition to reawaken your power, health, and freedom!

IMPORTANT: Scholarships are available for residents of South American countries. Please contact us for more information.

In MovNat Reconnect, we will expand our Practice of Natural Movement as we celebrate and reconnect with life, nature, and humanity. The guiding themes of this immersion are courage, connection, and regeneration, so that we can return home more “Strong to Be Helpful” than ever!

MovNat Reconnect will happen in communion with an extraordinary ecosystem: the jungles, rivers, and mountains of beautiful Colombia. Experience the thrill of exploring and deeply penetrating exotic, rugged terrain using MovNat’s principles of movement efficiency and adaptability. Imbibe the tranquility by surrounding yourself with the thrum of pristine forests and flowing turquoise clear waters that create this magical land. Do all of this as you learn, grow, and find your flow with a tribe of fellow travelers in this incredible journey of reconnection.

MovNat Reconnect is open to anyone who has attended a MovNat course, as well as anyone who is in good physical condition and is willing to practice the fundamental MovNat movements before the event. You do not need to be extremely fit or an advanced level mover to participate.

The Ecosystem: High Andean Jungle

MovNat Reconnect will be held in a very special space: San Rafael, Antioquia, Colombia.

Colombia boasts the second most bio-diverse ecosystem in the world, with unparalleled natural beauty and vibrancy. Lush forests, textured mountain vistas, and jaw dropping waterfalls are commonplace in this minimally impacted region of the world. The high jungle is as safe and diverse as any ecosystem in North America, making it a great place to learn, explore, and relax. Attention will be paid to understanding the local flora and fauna, minimizing the risk of incidence.

The country of Colombia is one of the safest travel destinations in South America. Here’s a great article on traveling to Colombia: Is Colombia Safe?

San Rafael is a quaint, peaceful town with an abundance of charming people and serene natural beauty. However, traveling to any foreign place, including within your own country, is an adventure and includes inherent risk. We encourage you to do your due diligence before traveling to ensure attention to safety and maximize the enjoyment of your experience.


Participants will connect and enjoy a dinner at Zafra Nature Reserve on January 26, 2022 while settling into the immersion center. Your Instructor Team will give a brief description of the days to follow. Each morning, we will meet together to share a breakfast, then head out into the jungle to enjoy a full day (with a lunch break) of movement lessons, explorations, and nature attunement drills. The last day will include a specially designed MovNat Reconnect Expedition that will solidify your newfound capability, confidence, and connection with the group. The immersion will end at 1 p.m. on Monday, January 31, giving you enough time to make an evening flight home or check into lodging at your next destination (such as exploring the city of Medellin or Colombia’s Coffee Zone).


This is an all-inclusive event. Food, lodging, and transportation to and from the airport is included in the price.

Participants will fly into the Medellin airport (MDE in Rionegro) on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. Transportation times to Zafra will be noon and 3pm and are included in the price. Participants are also welcome to arrange their own transportation and optionally arrive Thursday morning by 9am at the retreat center.

The immersion center is located in San Rafael, Colombia at the Zafra Reserve, about 2.5 hours taxi from the airport.

Three clean, healthy Colombian style meals (balanced with unprocessed proteins, fats, and carb sources) will be served a day and will be included in the price.

Participants will leave on Monday, January 31 by taxi at 2 p.m. from Zafra to the Medellin airport (cost included), or can arrange their own ride to the destination of their choice (cost not included).
