  • Description


    This place is for the ones interested in yoga. Yoga has 12 branches, from way of life, diet, philosophy, etc. to the asanas or exercises. We will learn together sharing the experience.
    We do some light work to take care of our basic needs and lead an organic life out of the grid.
    There are not rigid rules or schedules. The only exception is not animal flesh eating while here. So you can be flexible.
    Usually I wake up early with the light of the day, take a snack, attend the cow and do some work. Around 11 am, we watch some video about the Vedic culture, meditate for a while and do the asanas. Then we have lunch and do some reading from our small library and then work a little more and at the end of the day we watch a Video and retire.
    We cook and have meals as we like, fruits and vegetables are freely available.
    This is an organic agricultural farm of coffee, bananas, avocados and other fruits, with a cow for milk and an orchard for vegetables and a lot of virgin pure water. Vegetarianism is practiced. There are 6 rooms made of brick and an area for camping under a roof of more than 5,000 square feet. An area for Yoga and Videos and we have some light work to reconnect with mother earth and for our basic needs of living.

    -This area is in a tourist road to Machu Pichu, the Amazon jungle and diverse ancient archeological sites, locally this is a small agricultural area producing tea, coffee and fruits.
    -If wanted I can provide guaranteed contacts with tourist guides to take tourists as far as Titicaca lake or a master of the Andean Cosmovision as well as one on the Mayan Cosmovision in Guatemala. This is a tourist commercially ridden market with no much legitimacy, so it is good to get the right contacts.
