Yoga retreats are unique and transformational life moments that call upon introspection, observation of our body-mind relationship with food, and allow us to share with and learn from others in a community-based environment. The Amazon rainforest of Moyobamba is warm, teaming with life and morning mist, and allows us to reconnect with nature and Pachamama. With two lagoons, daily hummingbird and toucan visits, locally-grown organic food, and a strolling path around the property through various flowers and scents, La Casa de mi Sueño is a paradise in the orchid jungle with various enchanting spots to practice yoga, and is just re-opening to the public in 2018 from mid-April to mid-October. 

This 5-day Restorative Yin Yoga Retreat is designed to help you unwind in a serene natural environment, purify your body and mind through daily postural practice stretching connective tissues around the joints and ligaments, cleanse your body with a yogi raw-vegan gluten-free diet supplemented with Amazonian detox juicing, morning meditation in the mist and evening star gazing, as well as visits to the local hot springs for natural joint/pain relieve and stress reduction, and finally Thai, shiatsu, or deep tissue massages. 

This program includes daily Yin yoga and meditation practices, an enchanting excursion to the Tingana eco-reserve, a complimentary 30-minute massage of your choice to alleviate any body stress or pain you may have been carrying with you, and an opportunity to breathe fresh air, slow down, and observe the present moment while truly relaxing and reflecting in this unique jungle oasis where hummingbirds and sometimes also owls visit daily. 

Yoga is the path of union, and yoga practices help you come to the realization that there is a connection among the different aspects of ourselves.

This is to serve as a general outline, and activities and times may shift according to your and the group’s preferences 

Notes:

  • Participation: if you wish to accompany your partner without taking part in yoga practice, or if you wish to participate in some practices and take free days to yourself, it is indeed possible to do so. The experience is yours to create. 
  • Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advanced notice.

Yin Yoga

Daily yoga practices take place in nature, La Casa de mi Sueño offering several spaces on the grass, on the tennis court, and under the house. We will practice surrounded by a visual scenery of lagoons, greenery and hummingbird visits, the smell Amazonian flowers, and a soundscape of birds, insects, and leaves in the wind. Both morning and evening practices are designed to help you stretch and relax, with afternoon practices offering extended guided Shavasanas and double octave native flute to transport you to a place of stillness. My teaching style is hands-on alignment based with the use of props. The objective is for you to leave revitalized and inspired to apply in your daily life some of what you will learn here. 


Excursion to Tingana Eco-Reserve

Experience the beauty and authenticity of Tingana, a refuge for wild animals that takes you canoeing on a discovery trip through Amazon rivers filled with gigantic renaco tree roots. Here you can listen to the jungle and observe toucans and other birds, monkeys, sloths, snakes, and insects in their natural habitat. Tingana is composed of 25 families all involved in eco-conservation, 10 of whom also run their eco-tourism program. Many of Tingana’s residents used to hunt for work, but now the reserve has allowed them to earn a living by conserving the environment instead of depleting it. 


Accommodations at La Casa de mi Sueño

A rare opportunity to stay at this boutique eco-garden lodge, which will reopen from mid-April to mid-October in 2018 after years of not receiving guests. The rooms are spacious and all have a private balcony with view of the gardens and mountains, with modern private bathroom (hot shower, electricity, flushing toilets, etc.). You can sit, eat, and relax in hammocks in an open veranda below the rooms. The house is walking distance from the city center via stairs that lead from this small street to the Mirador of Tahuisco - which is a collection of small pedestrians-only streets with some shops and restaurants.

Weather, what to bring & how to get there:

Unlike the evening cold of Cusco or the hot and humid of Tarapoto, the weather in Moyobamba is extremely pleasant: warm but not hot and humid, ideal for yoga practice and enjoying nature. We suggest you bring light clothes such as shorts and t-shirts, and a pair of comfortable pants and a sweater for the evenings. Bring a bathing suit or two for the mineral baths and pools, a pair of running shoes for the hike, and a flashlight or headlamps for the night’s camping.  

From Tarapoto airport, hop on a taxi (also called collectivo) for Moyobamba. The cost is 20 soles (about 5-6$) and takes about 1h45minutes across unspoiled jungle, with always a stop to purchase fresh coconuts and other fruits on the way. The taxi or collectivo station in Tarapoto is about 5 minutes from the airport, and the cost for a mototaxi (similar to tuk-tuks in Asia) from Tarapoto airport to the station is 2 soles. I personally ask for a taxi straight from Tarapoto airport to Moyobamba, eliminating the mototaxi ride there, which I never have a problem to find. 


Benefits:

  • Pause and immerse yourself in nature in the Amazonian jungle
  • Deepen your yoga practice with daily Yin yoga practices
  • Learn new meditation techniques
  • Practice deep breathing with Bandhas (locks) and pranayama 
  • Learn yogi morning routine habits
  • Relax your body and mind in mineral baths while learning foot reflexology
  • Unique opportunity to stay at a stunning eco-garden lodge that is just re-opening to the public from mid-April to mid-October in 2018  
  • All-inclusive package: Just bring yourself and your smile! If you wish to learn some new vegan recipes you are welcome to participate in cooking when you feel like it. 

Yoga and meditation allow us to step back and contemplate, experience subtle different states of consciousness that help clarify our thoughts and value system, and provide us with intuitive knowledge on what brings us happiness in life. Come feel the music within you on this beautiful and rejuvenating yoga journey of self-awareness in the Amazonian jungle. 

I began practicing kung-fu at 15 years old and teaching it at around 18 through my early 20’s, and then transitioned through Tai Chi and Qigong. It was after moving to Japan that I progressed through yoga, which I have been practicing for 12 years now in Japan, Indonesia, India, Thailand, Canada and now Peru. Last year I became a RYT Yoga Alliance-certified Hatha Vinyasa yoga teacher studying under Pedro Carillo in Peru, and my teaching style is hands-on alignment based with the use of props. As a deep sea diver, I specialize in pranayama and breathing techniques.



















I offer you two different intimate retreat options: for those seeking a truly relaxing experience, my 5 Day Restorative Yin Yoga retreat offers you an excursion to Tingana eco-reserve for a morning canoe ride through Amazon rivers where monkeys, sloths, birds, and other animal species are waking up…

If on the other hand at this time you feel more like a physically challenging experience with still plenty of time to relax in hot springs, hammocks, and see the hummingbird and orchid sanctuary, then my 5 Day Power Hatha Vinyasa yoga detox retreat with hiking camping yoga excursion is for you! 

You can also design you own custom retreat with the dates/length, excursions, and yoga styles of your choice. Contact me for such requests.
