Type of Event
As a general rule, this retreat starts every first Monday of the month except for the months of March and August where there are no retreats.
Price per person in double occupancy. If you are traveling alone, you can either join an existing group ( 620 USD for a private cabin) and we also offer private retreats (for one participant for 720 USD)
The retreat includes daily yoga classes (a total of 8) in our gorgeous yoga space which looks out on the surrounding natural beauty. The soundscape (the natural chorus of wind, birds, monkeys, insects, ) will transport you to a place of natural serenity deep within yourself during your practice; especially in Savasana (the final resting pose). Yoga props and accessories are provided. There will be a variety of styles practiced during the retreat: Hatha, gentle, restorative, yoga Nidra, and yoga flow if you are up to it! This yoga retreat is designed for beginners and intermediate yogis and yoginis. There is a maximum of 10 guests per retreat.
Hatha yoga classes will be held twice daily with the morning session being an uplifting, energizing class and the afternoon session designed to calm and restore mind, body and spirit. Meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques) will also be practiced daily during class. Every day is different at Tambo Ilusión. After your morning yoga session and breakfast, enjoy a swim in the beautiful private lagoon, walk along the 1.4 km trail of the protected forest to explore and hug a tree, get your hands in the earth to tend plants and trees or even put on a bee suit and visit the bee hives. You can participate as little or as much as you wish to in the various activities at Tambo Ilusión.
Another highlight of the program is the four hour hike alongside "Cordillera Escalera" mountain range (weather permitting). The walk offers beautiful views along the way to the river where you'll cool off swimming in the river and enjoy a picnic lunch.
All of the above activities are included and are also optional. If you prefer, you can simply lounge in a hammock reading, do a bit of bird and monkey watching, take a siesta or do whatever it is your heart desires. Essentially, the experience is yours to create.
Nights usually wind down around 9.00 pm.
You will also be encouraged to keep a journal for the week. Suggestions and writing exercises will be provided to get you started.
