El Niño

About The Teacher

Always having lived in symbiosis with the jungle, Niño is originally from Rurrenabaque, Bolivia. He started his camino de las plantas at age eleven. In his teens he turned his passion for the plants and animals of the jungle into a career as one of the city’s most notable and adventurous tour guides.

Though he no longer works for any one agency and with several month long survival expeditions under his belt, he still has a deep yearning for the jungle where even a day or two in La Paz will leave his fingers itching to grab his machete and venture out into the wilderness he calls home.

At Age 27 he had an Ayahuasca vision of his to-be maestro Juan Flores. After searching for this mythical man, he finally found a new home as a student at the prestigious school for medicinal plants in Pucallpa, Peru. The centre was Mayantuyacu. When finishing his studies, he returned to his home in Beni with the goal to start a center of his own.

He is now the founder and maestro of Casa de Pawua as well as the former President for the Association de Medicos Tradicionales de Rurrenabaque.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
