The capital of the Philippines. Mod cons available.
Optional tours:
Walking Tour of Intramuros (walled city) with a Cultural Dance & Dinner on Day 12
Culinary Walking Tour of Chinatown with a Jeepney Ride on Day 13

El Nido
Remember the movie 'Beach' with Leonardo di Caprio? Apparently Alex Garland's book was originally inspired by the beauty of El Nido.

Endless white beaches, crystal clear waters and an underwater world, that will take your breath away. A destination that truly looks like paradise. The beauty of El Nido is hard to describe, you have to see the place with your own eyes.

The highlight of our stay are the island hopping tours showcasing nine islands for three days including a buffet lunch.

Please be advised that we will be traveling for six hours on the van to reach El Nido from Puerto Princesa OR taking a chartered flight straight to El Nido from Manila subject to availability.

Yoga session once a day either before or after the island hopping tour.

Port Barton
Port Barton is a small coastal village in San Vicente, Palawan. It attracts mostly non-luxury seeking, status anxiety free vacationers. It has in recent years become a popular choice for budget backpackers and other adventurous international travelers, who appreciate and enjoy the remote, rural, relaxed, friendly atmosphere and natural beauty that this quiet and peaceful beachside village, on the edge of the rainforest, has to offer.

There is no electricity, except from 5.30pm till midnight. There are no banks or ATMs. There are no doctors or hospitals. There are no five star hotels etc. Internet access is limited.

Yoga on the beach twice a day!

This is a three-hour drive from El Nido and another three to Puerto.

Optional tours:
Island Hopping
Mangrove Boat Tour
Diving/Snorkelling

Puerto Princesa
Aptly nicknamed “the city in a forest.” It’s been named the Philippines’ cleanest and greenest city.
Optional tour: Underground River tour

Vaccinations
For your peace of mind, please consult your GP.

It's More Fun in the Philippines!

Disclaimer:
This journey is not for
Before applying to take part in this experience you must understand that what we offer is not a luxurious yoga holiday. This is a journey to the remote islands in Palawan. We do not guarantee that you will have a nice relaxing time. In fact we do not guarantee anything.

It might be bad weather, it might be rough waves. Limited privacy. Barking dogs, crowing roosters, mosquito bites, jellyfish stings, that is the nature of an island experience, the unexpected, the unknown, stepping outside your comfort zone. Yoga sessions will take place where there is space.

We love it, but we understand that this is not everyone's idea of a good time.

...is it YOURS?
