9 Days Reflecting Through the Journey Yoga in the Andes

Reflecting Through the Journey: Yoga, Writing, & Adventure in Ecuador

Experience adventure travel in a whole new way! Join Blythe & Maeve for a playful, exhilarating yoga adventure in Ecuador this summer, where we will explore breathtaking vistas and immerse ourselves in Ecuadors fascinating, unique culture. Enjoy a daily yoga practice, search your inner landscapes through meditation, and reflect on your experiences with creative journalism.

Our daily practice will compliment our itinerary perfectly, allowing us to experience a deeply relaxing Hatha & Yin yoga class after an exciting day of adventure or start the day off with a soul soothing, uplifting yoga practice that will open up our mind, heart and senses for a day of exploring. We will also have the opportunity to take in our surroundings and share our experiences through daily quiet time to write in our journals, draw from what is around us, and collect memories. Each one of our journals will be a unique reflection of our travels, observations, yoga practice, and how it all affects our state of being on the journey. It is ours to create!

While connecting with the deeply personal aspects of this retreat, you will also have plenty of time to enjoy your small community of travelers and experience together the natural and cultural highlights of this breathtaking region. Find peace and rejuvenation in a sparkling mineral pool surrounded by a tropical cloud forest paradise. The very next day, immerse yourself in the serenity of the windswept highland plains and end the day next to a cozy, crackling fire. Travel at a relaxed pace from the worlds highest active volcano to the welcoming arms of a remote community overlooking a spectacular canyon. Take advantage of this truly unique leadership team as Maeve and Blythe bring a beautiful balance of creativity, neuroscience, journaling, meditation, vinyasa flow, yin yoga and fun! Join us for the trip of a lifetime on the equator.

    "I should start by saying that we crafted this trip with the help of Nicole and her agency Amazon Andes Sky. [...] I believe our experience would not have been the same without her nor would the planning process have been as effortless. The AAS team acted as travel planners, advisors, reservation makers, errand runners and support staff providing us with a wonderful trip which included private drivers, guides, travel and excursion suggestions, detailed itineraries, and terrific hotel recommendations."

    "As far as the trip itself: Edu, the AAS rep was waiting for us at the Quito airport and got us to our hotel in the city. The Casa San Marcos was perfectly located in the historic district. We had a very nice room along with excellent breakfasts. After a couple days in Quito, we headed south to Cotopaxi for some mountain biking. On Nicole's advice, we biked with the Biking Dutchman (our guide was Fernando) and it was one of the high points or our trip. After our day of biking, our AAS private driver, Santiago, met us and we continued south to the Quilotoa Loop. He was a very pleasant and informative guide and made our trip through the mountains interesting and enjoyable. We stayed at the Black Sheep Inn which we greatly enjoyed. The Quilotoa Crater hike was tough but fun. If I had it to do over again, I'd be more open to Nicole's horseback riding suggestion; another guest at the inn said that was the high point of her trip. Santiago continued with us on to Banos where we said goodbye and continued onward on our own. Banos was our favorite town and we really liked the hotel, Posada del Arte. The room was quite nice and the breakfasts were the best that we had on our trip. We visited "the swing at the end of the world." If we had been able to spend more time, we'd have ridden bikes along the river. After Banos, we continued on to Tena where we white water kayaked, another highlight for us. We enjoyed the hotel, the Casa Blanca, and the owners, Gary and Michelle, made us feel right at home. Gary also served as our whitewater guide and photographer. The tourism in Coca seems to be limited to embarking on and returning from rain forest trips on the Napo River. We had run out of time by then, so I'm not able to comment on the river trips. After my son spent a day visiting his new boss and the company compound (oil well drilling) we flew to Quito and then back to the US."

    "Thank you very much, Nicole!!! You answered our pre-trip questions quickly and thoroughly. I appreciate that you provided such detailed instructions about where we should go and what buses to take when we were on our own. Thanks also for calling the hotels to make sure we arrived without any problem. And especially thanks for clearing up the confusion at the hotel in Coca where no one spoke even a word of English; your team took care of that issue and got us going again without delay. You and your firm have my heartiest recommendation."

    "A+. I loved the fact that you were so accommodating to our dietary needs. Also, I think that everyone enjoyed the trip more because you were so flexible and just rolled with the issues that came up. I also love how you were taking pictures for us because I'm not good at taking pictures all the time. I'm so excited to see them!"

    "We had an amazing time in Ecuador with Amazon Andes Sky! They were so attentive to our needs and were dedicated to making sure we enjoyed our stay. There were no worries when it came to language barriers; Nicole and Greg communicated with the locals when we couldn't. I am especially grateful to Nicole for her attention and help when I wasn't feeling up to par. Before we left on a trip to the jungle, she arranged for me to have a fire in my room at 08:30 that night when we were scheduled to return. We got back late and went straight to dinner with packs and all. Nicole excused herself to make sure the fire was started as planned, called the staff when she found out it wasn't, and waited in the room herself to make sure it was done. I was a happy lady! We will definitely visit again!"

    "Is it wrong that I loved every single thing? I loved the adventure; a trip of a lifetime. You two were so accommodating. The trip was peaceful, relaxing, challenging, and fun. The food far exceeded my expectations. I cant believe they did such a great job accommodating gluten AND dairy free! I would definitely come back. Thank you, thank you!"

    "Start to finish, this was a phenomenal adventure. We experienced the real Ecuador to a degree we never could have on our own. The welcoming people, the breathtaking landscapes, the hummingbirds and waterfalls, rainbows and volcanoesit all works to transform you in ways you cannot anticipate. What an amazing country! The level of personal service provided by Amazon Andes Sky staffs really defines above and beyond. They were tireless in ensuring our needs were met at every turn and truly gracious in accommodating our special requests. We expected guides and interpreters, but we got so much more. They were our caretakers, comedians, companions, photographers, dance partners, water carriers, pamperers, personal shoppers, purveyors of comfort, and ultimately, our dear friends. Ecuador offers so much, and the best way to experience it is with these guys!"
