Travel to this eco-guesthouse in the Amazon’s mountainous jungle, spend time coming back to yourself in this astounding natural environment.

This fun retreat includes morning and afternoon SUP yoga classes in the gorgeous natural spring. If, at times the weather is not suitable, on land yoga sessions would be 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.

For the SUP, the 360-degree view that this practice offers in inversions is spectacular. On the water, one feels totally connected with the environment. In addition, practicing yoga on a paddle board is challenging as being on an unstable surface increases the intensity of the practice, making it a complete workout. 

Meditating on water is an experience not to be missed either. And you will soak up all the benefits of your practice in Savasana looking at the world upside down while floating with the water caressing your dangling fingers. Bliss! This practice feeds the soul. Come experience the freedom.

This fun all-inclusive wellness retreat will help you connect with nature and take your yoga practice to a new level. 

The cost of this retreat includes 6 SUP yoga classes in the gorgeous lagoon, premium quality SUP yoga equipment, 4-night cozy accommodation, delicious and nourishing whole-food plant-based breakfasts, lunches and suppers.
