About us

5 Day Power Yoga Retreat

Join me for this five days Power yoga retreat in the Amazonian jungle cloud forest of Peru for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to practice yoga, meditation, and partake in a spectacular morning hike with deep meditation and yoga practice with extended guided Savasana in mist above clouds! Offered in an all-inclusive yogi food detox package at the most stunning location in Moyobamba, Peru, the Puerto Mirador hotel, originally built by the Peruvian government as part of a wider national effort to increase tourism in the country. The 5 acre land was selected just above a valley overseeing mountains, and as such abounds with mist! Fruits growing on the property include mangos, oranges, pomarrosa, yellow and green coconuts, guava, etc. This 5-day Power Yoga Retreat is designed to help you purify your body and mind through daily postural practice with pose variations for beginners to advanced level practitioners, 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 hot springs for natural joint/pain relieve and stress reduction, and finally Thai, shiatsu, or deep tissue massages are also available. 

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 daily hummingbird and toucan visits, locally-grown organic food, a huge land to walk, meditate, and practice yoga, various flowers and scents, the Puerto Mirador is a paradise in the orchid jungle.

This 5-day Power Yoga Retreat is designed to help you purify your body and mind through daily postural practice with pose variations for beginners to advanced level practitioners, a yogi vegetarian diet supplemented with Amazonian detox juicing, morning meditation in the mist and evening star gazing, as well as visits to the hot springs for natural joint/pain relieve and stress reduction.

This program includes daily Hatha Vinyasa yoga classes, a spectacular sunrise mist meditation and yoga excursion atop the Morro de Calzada on a natural panoramic 360° viewpoint, a complimentary 30-minute massage of your choice to alleviate any body stress or pain you may have from the beginning of your stay, and an opportunity to breathe fresh air, slow down, and observe the present moment while training your body and mind in this unique jungle oasis where hummingbirds and toucans 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.

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. Vegetarian meals included in this package, but can be changed to vegan if preferred. There is also a restaurant on location with full menu options and vegan and raw-vegan options are being added as we speak! (I personally predominantly eat raw-vegan superfood smoothies and will teach you how to make them).   

Hatha Vinyasa Yoga

Daily yoga classes take place in nature, La Casa de mi Sueño offering several spaces to practice 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 the Amazonian flowers, and a soundscape of birds, insects, and leaves in the wind. The morning practice is designed to invigorate you, while in the afternoon we will work to fortify and restore, with 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. 

Hiking and Camping on the Morro de Calzada

The Morro de Calzada is a hill of about 575meters/1886 feet that stands in the middle of the Alto Mayo valley, 13 km north of Moyobamba. It takes about 15-20 minutes by bus to La Calzada district, 20 minutes walk to the foot of the hill, and about 1.5 hour to the top. The Morro features calcium formations and a natural panoramic 360° view point, with a climate typical of wet cloud forests, warm by day and chillier by night, with mist during late and early hours of the day. We have included plenty of buffer time to climb the hill slowly and relax on top after arrival before practicing yoga. We will carry some personal/double and larger tents, food and mats with us, and there is also a wood gazebo on top of the hill where we can relax. There is a groundskeeper that patrols the hill to keep order, and as such the area is safe.

I began practicing kung-fu at 15 years old 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 more physically challenging experience with still plenty of time to relax in hot springs, hammocks, and see the hummingbird and orchid sanctuary, then this 5 Day Power Hatha Vinyasa yoga detox retreat with hiking camping yoga excursion is definitely for you! 












      

If on the other hand at this time you feel like a more relaxing yoga retreat, my 5 Day Restorative Yin Yoga retreat offers you in lieu of the hiking yoga trip an excursion to Tingana eco-reserve for a morning quiet canoe ride through waterways and forests where monkeys, birds, and other animal species are waking up…(and our yoga practice there!). 

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

Venue Highlights

Accommodations at the Puerto Mirador hotel
A unique opportunity to stay at this eco-garden lodge that was build by the Peruvian government as part of a wider national effort to increase tourism in the country. As such, the location was selected in Moyobamba overseeing a valley surrounded by mountains, with large clouds of mist moving in from the valley. The land at 5 acres is huge, with many fruit trees growing all around. 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.). The hotel is walking distance from the Mirador of Tahuisco - which is a collection of small pedestrians-only streets with some shops and restaurants.

Accommodations

Rooms are all equipped with modern bathrooms with hot water and flushing toilets, a double/queen size bed, private balcony, a ceiling fan (not needed), and mini-bar.

Directions

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 collective/taxi station is 5 soles. You can also ask for a taxi/collectivo straight from Tarapoto airport to Moyobamba, eliminating the mototaxi ride to the collective station.
