Open Heart Journeys is a quality yoga retreat service created in 2005 by Francisco Morales-Bermudez.
We offer magical retreat experiences, as well as providing retreat leaders and yoga teachers the resources they need to create retreats for their students.
It is our intention to inspire you with the magic, culture and beauty of the locations we visit, while creating time for you to relax, connect with friends and practice yoga, during this heart-opening experience.
Our wish is that these deep, majestic journeys
will hum in your heart
and resonate in your spirit
for years to come.
The signature elements of an Open Heart Journey include:
The locations we choose are nurturing and healing environments to relax, retreat and develop long-lasting memories in culturally-rich communities.
Francisco & Esak practice Yoga daily so we've integrated this into our retreats for you to take your practice on the road.
We believe delicious & nutritious food not only feed the body but nourishes the soul.
In addition to daily yoga, each retreat includes Adventure Excursions to connect with our surroundings. We explore the Earth's natural beauty as well as the cultures and people that inhabit it.
Our lives are enriched by the communities & places we visit and we believe in giving back to them.
Want more insight into how to lead a retreat? Ready to co-create an Open Heart Journey? Then email us at and we will explore the needs of you and your group.
Francisco has been teaching yoga and traveling the world for a decade. Today he teaches yoga full time, teaches synergy partner yoga and leads heart opening journeys.
