Yoga with dogs - 10 nights

About us

Practice Yoga enjoying our adorable dog’s presence!

Retreat Bela Natureza Brazil offers YOGA packages where you can practice Hatha Yoga in the presence of our loving healing dogs. They will bring a lot of joy and extra-easiness into your Yoga practices. While classes are running the dogs stay away in their closed area.  

There will be 2 classes of Hatha Yoga a day and talks about Yoga theory and philosophy.  

During the classes you will be instructed on the deepening of asanas (body postures) and pranayama (breathing). Liberation, healing and knowledge of body, mind and soul. Awareness of the "here and now". Hatha yoga provides firmness and elasticity to the muscles. It helps the concentration, relaxation and balance of being.

No previous experience required. For all ages.

Additionally we offer various options for relaxing, expressing your creativity, enjoying unforgettable new places, or simply letting our dogs' love warm your heart. 

In our region there are a couple of interesting touristic attractions like local restaurants with typical Bahian food, surfing, diving, whale watching (seasonal), sea turtle project, etc ...

The package includes delicious vegetarian meals made from organic locally-produced vegetables. If you would like to eat some different dishes, there are very good restaurants nearby, or you can let us know for discuss.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
