Take a trip to the tiny Caribbean island with a lot of soul by read­ing this piece on “the grand­fa­ther of Cuban yoga.”

Excerpt:

The con­di­tions are minimalist—students rest in Savasana on a small area of tiled floor space, sur­round­ed by emp­ty walls with peel­ing paint and views of lush, fer­tile jun­gle out­side. [Eduar­do] Pimentel dreams of one day sell­ing his apart­ment for a larg­er space, so that he can open a yoga stu­dio of his own—which as of today, would be the first of its kind… Cur­rent­ly there are six non­de­script loca­tions in Havana that are rent­ed out for pub­lic yoga class­es. Few props are avail­able: straps, blocks, even yoga mats are dif­fi­cult to come by, as slow Cuban com­merce con­tin­ues to lim­it the impor­ta­tion of many every­day goods.”
