Day by Day of 6-day Yoga Retreat - Itacaré, Brazil
Day 1 - Welcome to Itacaré
At home. That's how your host will make you feel when welcoming.
Get settled before enjoying a private welcome dinner, but feel free to walk around and know the neighborhood. You are just a few steps away from the sand!
Day 2 - Cacau Farm
We head for a full-day excursion to a Cacau farm where we start the day with a yoga class in a beautiful yoga studio overlooking the river and the Atlantic Rainforest.
We continue the day with a brief tour around the Cacau farm and make our own chocolate from fresh Cacau beans. After having enjoyed a vegetarian lunch at the farm we head to a lagoon hidden inside the rainforest for a refreshing swim.
To finish off this perfect day, we will participate in a Cacau Ceremony, an act that is considered to be heart-opening.
Day 3 - Remote Paradise
Get your sneakers on because today we are making a proper hike through the jungle with the local "McGiver-ish" guide. The destination of the hike is nothing less than one of the most beautiful beaches in the region.
At this remote beach, we enjoy a yoga practice in front of the ocean, a delicious and fresh lunch on the beach followed by some beach-fun and relaxing.
Day 4 - Drop-in
Today we head to the beach with the Surf School. In order to get to the beach, we hike through the dense Atlantic rainforest, passing by waterfalls and the rich biodiversity of tropical vegetation. In between the two surf sessions we will enjoy a delicious local snack called Tapioca and freshly picked coconuts.
Day 5 - A day in the water
Today we take a boat along the river and head to a spectacular waterfall where we will have a swim and a picnic.
After spending some time in the Mangroves and the river we will enjoy a lunch in front of the ocean at Iemanja Beach Club followed by a very special activity: SUP Yoga (yes, Yoga on the water!).
Once we are done with yoga-ing we head to the beach where we will experience a dinner served on the beach that we will enjoy along sunset gazing, drinking wine, and listening to Bossa Nova.
Day 6 - Farewell
We will enjoy a delicious brunch made and served with lots of love by the staff of Vila Barracuda before it is time for goodbye-hugging and email exchanging with new friends from all over the world.
