"This retreat was incredible! "
The horse coaching and yoga were both very relaxing and gratifying... the hikes were an awesome personal challenge. I can’t wait to go back!

"Yoga and horses... yes!"
From the minute I was picked up I felt at home with Mira. She and her assistant Charlie have so much love; for the horses and animals, for their guests, and for life overall. They are extremely collaborative and intuitive to ensure the retreat meets your needs, skill level and comfort zone, both for the yoga and the horseback riding. Charlie got me to ride bareback on my second day! And they are just a pleasure to be around and to get to know, we had so many wonderful conversations together.
I found that the yoga and horseback riding went very naturally together, especially as they practice natural horsemanship which centers around the relationship with the horse. Mira goes to great lengths to build trust with the horses and you can see it in their lively and kind spirits, which extends to your own. I enjoyed the yoga, meditation and journaling which were very centering, and the addition of the horses helped you be centered while still being with other beings. Easier to do with horses than co-workers!
I don't often repeat vacations, but I would come back to Mira Andes in a heartbeat.

"An Amazing Personal Journey in Paradise"
The retreat was at a lovely hacienda/resort in a beautiful setting surrounded by the volcanoes and mountain ranges. The accommodations were great along with the well-groomed grounds, friendly and attentive staff, horses and other animals, cozy yoga studio, hot tub, delicious meals and daily detox juice, and many personal touches by Mira. Mira is a wonderful instructor guiding us through a journey of self-reflection, journaling, yoga, connection with horses and nature, and meditation. She guided us through many different styles of yoga and adjusted the activities based on our interests and needs. She is very motivational, kind, compassionate, insightful. Her enthusiasm for yoga, meditation, making connections with others and oneself , nature and horses was infectious and inspiring. The retreat was a great experience and journey for my adult daughter and I, individually and with each other. It has made a profound impact on us. Thank you, Mira. Mira is one of those people that you meet who makes a positive and lasting imprint in your life.

"An unforgettable experience"
Everything was perfect. The place is beautiful with a relaxed and calming energy. Every detail is neat and it's a real haven of peace. All the people and animals live in complete harmony. The yoga and meditation classes are very professional. Different styles of meditation and yoga are offered each day while there is a good balance between both. The Daily journaling was also a very good experience. I did coaching sessions with the horses and this experience was fantastic. Mira is very professional and she knows perfectly what she does. She is calm and cheerful and is very attentive. Her support and explications allowed me to fully enjoy this experience with confidence. I took with me some strong and unforgettable moments.
In addition to the yoga, meditation and coaching classes, there were two excursions to discover the region. One in Cotopaxi National Park and one in Laguna Quilotoa. I really enjoyed these two trips, which allowed me to see more of the Andes. Charlie and all the staff are very professional, kind and attentive. I loved everything in the whole retreat and I will come back again without hesitation. Thank you to all of you who made these moments unforgettable. With love. Joanne

"Fun, relaxing and all around wonderful experience"
This solo vacation was more than I could have expected and more! From the accommodations to the food to the activities, it was quality all the way! I am both an experiences yoga and horseback rider. The classes were catered to each day and modifed for each person. The horses are well taken care of and we'll trained. The staff are all kind and friendly from the horse trainer to the receptionist. There is a Jacuzzi on site which we used a few nights! Just being in the mountains and seeing the views every morning was so lovely in and of itself. I would recommend anyone to this retreat who wants to be in nature, meet lovely people, be around animals, eat fantastic food and just relax with yoga and horses. I will be going back in the future!
