Muay Thai immersion in the forests and mountains of Chapada Diamantina
Much more than Muay Thai training, an immersion within oneself. The setting for this experience is in the mountains of Vale do Capão, in Chapada Diamantina, a region with one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Brazil, in addition to stunning nature, preserved by a community that lives in balance and respect the environment.
In this 4-day immersion, you will have Muay Thai classes outdoors, visiting the mountains, waterfalls, and rivers of Vale do Capão. All this combined with Yoga classes and self-knowledge through the philosophy of martial art.
Training in nature enhances not only the body but also mental health. An ideal adventure for those looking to improve their stamina and relax.
Day by day
Day 1 - Welcome to Chapada Diamantina
Our immersion will take place in Vale do Capão, district of Chapada Diamantina. The best way to get to Capão is by car or by executive bus from Salvador to the city of Palmeiras. A transfer from Palmeiras to Vale do Capão can be hired on your reservation. This is the day of check-in when you can settle down calmly and enjoy the structure of the inn with swimming pools, gazebo, resting from your trip. Before dinner, around the campfire, we will do a briefing on the immersion, providing useful information and presenting practices with minimal impact during the stay in the Valley. Afterwards, a delicious dinner will be available at the Avalon Restaurant.
From today onwards, all our days will begin with practices of meditation and hatha yoga at 6:30 followed by a delicious breakfast in the Inn. At 09:00 am we will depart to today's destination, which will be the beautiful ‘Águas Claras’, a delicate and beautiful ecosystem existing in a crevice with enchanting waterfalls and river. Our training precedes our arrival in this little hidden paradise. On the way back, we'll go straight to lunch at the house of Dona Lora, known not only for cooking but also for her knowledge of medicinal herbs in Vale do Capão. After the meal, a well-deserved rest on the banks of the Riachinho de Lençóis precedes swimming and calisthenics training. At night we will have free time for rest and the night in this beautiful valley.
Once again our day begins by working the mind and body with meditation and hatha yoga. After breakfast, we will head towards Ponte Velha, in an exuberant setting, where the specific training of kicking Muay Thai will take place. After enjoying the nature of this scenario, with river baths and calisthenics, we will have a picnic lunch and descend the Rio Preto to a place of exuberant beauty with waterfalls and a stone plateau, followed by a refreshing bath in the waters of Chapada and a beautiful sunset at Rodas Waterfall.
On our last day, after yoga and breakfast at the Inn, we will jog towards one of Brazil's highest waterfalls: the breathtaking Cachoeira da Fumaça. From its top, we will practice a hand stroke correction training session looking out to one of Chapada Diamantina's most beautiful views. We will also enjoy a refreshing bath at the "maternity". Once again, our lunch will take place on the trail, with a super healthy kit carefully made to meet your bodily needs for today's intense challenge. On the way back, we will end our immersion, visiting Riachinho Water, enjoying a beautiful beautiful sunset in the Valley.
Inspired and renewed, we will return home even more connected with nature and with ourselves, looking forward to the next adventure.
