Ayurveda-style stress-relieving Retreat

One week in the mountains near Villa de Leyva, Colombia.

Small group: Only 10 participants per retreat!

"There are processes in life that seem driven by a higher force, which help us remember who we are, rediscover our essence, harmonize our well-being, and reconnect with our truth."

This is one of them…

What are we going to do?

- Leisurely savor every single moment: smell the grass after the rain, listen to cowbells, observe the majestic mountains, and taste a peach freshly picked from the tree. Oh, the simple things!
- Temporarily erase urban memories of hurriedness, traffic, hustle & bustle, and smog
- Nourish ourselves with fresh food of vibrant colors and flavors, grown according to tradition
- Indulge in relaxing Ayurvedic massages and Shirodhara treatments
- Get a personalized diet and nutrition consultation
- Have a experienced palm reader decipher the meaning of your hand lines
- Experience forest baths, excursions to waterfalls, chanting circles, rejuvenating yoga nidra relaxations, rituals, live Mandalas, a little yoga, some contemplation...
- Ayurveda lectures and do-it-yourself treatments
- Stroll along the cobblestone streets of a 16th-century, very cute town
- Slow down and relish life

Were are we staying?

Our center is located 12 km (7 miles) from Villa de Leyva, a charming colonial town located three hours from Bogota, in Colombia. We are in a heavenly environment, surrounded by majestic mountains, small farms that supply us with organic products, beautiful waterfalls, and plenty of silence. The center, inaugurated in 2005, features modern rooms with private bathrooms, a yoga shala, a treatment center with two rooms for Ayurvedic treatments, expansive gardens with ponds, an organic orchard where we grow fruits and vegetables, and a small temple for meditation and rituals.

How do we get there?

Simply book your flight to Bogota. We’ll be waiting for you at the airport to whisk you to our center in Villa de Leyva. We recommend you arrive in Bogota by 2pm so you can make use of our private group transportation. If you arrive later, we will still pick you up for an additional cost.
