Yoga & Hiking in Patagonia

This yoga vacation offers you the unique opportunity to activate and challenge your senses in a combination of personal awareness, active contemplation of nature and physical work.

 

During your stay in Puerto Natales you will have the chance to immerse yourself in the surrounding nature and explore Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. Glaciers, lakes and mountains form the backdrop of the excursions. Animals like Rhea, Guanaco and off course the impressive condor can be easily oberved. The town of Puerto Natales is surrounded by mountains and fjords. No matter where you are in town, you will always be able to see the mountains.

 

The Hatha yoga sessions all take place in a geodesic dome located outside of Puerto Natales on the shores of Ultima Esperanza Fjord. The dome has been built especially for the practice of yoga and meditation, giving warmth and protection while keeping in close touch with nature. A magical place!

 

The trip is suitable for both beginners and experienced yoga practitioners. Small groups of maximum 12 people. Outdoor activities are moderately challenging.

 

The program starts with your arrival in Puerto Natales. Please let us know where you will be travelling from so we can help you make arrangements to get to Puerto Natales if you need.
