This wonderful retreat includes 8 yoga classes held in a stunning yoga space which looks out on the surrounding natural beauty. The soundscape (the natural chorus of wind, birds, monkeys and 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 some yoga flow.

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.

If you have little or no yoga experience, the classes will be adapted and modified accordingly. Those who are not flexible are ideal candidates to begin a yoga practice. There is no competition involved in yoga, least of all with yourself. Everyone works from their own body awareness giving the best of themselves.

Every day is different at Tambo Ilusión although every morning starts with mindfully sipping a cleansing and alkalinizing cup of warm lemon water on your porch watching nature wake up around you followed by a morning yoga session and healthy breakfast. Afterwards, 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, observe birds and monkeys in their natural habitat. Cleanse your aura by taking a “baño de plantas”, enjoy a Reiki session (Reiki is a wonderful way to relax, heal and sooth emotions, stress and anxiety. This non invasive therapy will nurture and nourish you deep within and give you the time to relax, be still and receive), color or journal by the lagoon or in your hammock, etc. You will also have the opportunity to take a stroll with Johanne and escort Ayla, our equine friend. We will stop at a viewpoint on the way to admire the stunning sunset (weather permitting) and Ayla grazing benefitting from both equine and sunset therapy; both known to be soothing for the soul!

Essentially, the experience during this retreat is yours to create and is sure to be unforgettable!

You will have free time each day to dedicate to no one but yourself in this lush tropical jungle because you deserve it!

You will be encouraged to keep a journal for the week. Suggestions and writing exercises will be provided to get you started.
