The Ibitipoca Yoga Retreat is a 8-day wellness program organized deep in the historic countryside of Brazil, among beautiful valleys and mountains of Minas Gerais. The program includes daily Hatha yoga sessions, full board based on an organic vegetarian menu and reviving experiences in the middle of splendid preserved nature. Take a deep immersion and connect with yourself, combining the four elements of earth, water, fire and air, worked through meditation, yoga, healthy food and outdoor activities. Enjoy the recharging energy of remote villages, go horse-riding or e-biking, swim, hike and experience the slow lifestyle of the Brazilian countryside. Discover the former farmlands which have been carefully converted into shabby luxury boutique lodges and lofts. Admire the picturesque hills, the preserved rainforest, black-water lakes, sacred waterfalls and mesmerizing top-hill views. The program includes accommodation at some of the best small country hotels in South America, with a lot of comfort and charm. It is an excellent choice for a group of friends, couples or families who like active trips, good organic food and luxury design hotels. You can start either in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte or Juiz de Fora, and we will adjust the trip depending where you arrive. We can tailor this itinerary to suit your plans by changing the length of the trip or the order of activities.
