Our 2022 Yoga and Meditation Retreat Itinerary
WELCOME TO NORONHA! A transfer will meet you upon your arrival at the airport and take you to your accommodation. During the afternoon, we will enjoy a welcoming coffee with your hostess, who will pass on some information about the retreat and instructions on practices with the minimal environmental impact on the island. After our meeting, we will continue to Bode Beach, where we will do our first meditation and yoga practice, followed by an exclusive dinner at Palhoça da Colina.
READY!? We started the day really early, paddling a Hawaiian Canoe during the first sunrise lights, exploring the bay of Porto Beach and its rich marine life from an oceanic perspective! From there, we continue to our first dive spot and the most beloved place by the locals. The iconic Conceição Beach. After our lunch break, a visit to Leão Beach, which is also the place for our yoga and meditation practices during sunset. At night, an exquisite dining experience at the Mesa da Ana.
NAMASTE! Our day starts with a light yoga and meditation session, preparing us for today's adventure: Visiting Sancho Bay, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, on a day with a lot of sun and water! During the afternoon we hike up to the Two Brothers Lookout before getting back to the sand for watching the sunset with bare feet. And by the way, tonight's dinner is different... LUAU! By the warmth of woodfire and the moonlights, listening to live acoustic music and feeling the sea breezes… Fresh grilled fish is on the menu!
WELCOME ABOARD! On today's adventure, we'll navigate the waters of Fernando de Noronha on a boat! Exploring several snorkeling spots, untouched beaches and incredible views. We might even have the dolphins company performing a bit of nature's show. Lunch is on board heading to Bode Beach, to end up the afternoon with meditation and yoga at sunset.
Today our morning meditation and yoga sessions go on at Cacimba do Padre. A charming beach to enjoy our practices to the sound of the sea waves and sing of birds. We will also free dive and snorkel, exploring its sea around Two Brothers, a main postcard of Noronha. In the afternoon, the nice hilly hike of Piquinho Trail and an amazing panoramic view of the island for a unique sunset meditation practice.
OM! Before breakfast, we start the day with meditation at the charming Museu dos Tubarões (Sharks Museum), connecting to its stunning environment. After breakfast, it is time for another great adventure: The water trail at Boldró Beach and the meeting with turtles, small sharks, stingrays, and of course, dolphins! After lunch, Conceição Beach, where we will contemplate its colourful sunset during our yoga practice to the sound of waves. On our last night, we will gather for a special dinner tasting more of Noronha's cuisine delights.
Even though at Yoga, we practice detachment and impermanence, we know it is hard to let go of this beautiful island. And for a special closure of this retreat, we will start with a sunrise meditation and yoga practice at Cacimba do Padre Beach, in a relaxation and freediving morning. We say goodbye at the airport and hoping to see you soon, we leave the doors open!
Inspired and renewed, return home from the 2022 Yoga and Meditation Retreat in Fernando de Noronha even more connected with yourself and our nature!
