Reiki

Reiki is an energy healing technique that can be used to treat physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues. Therefore, it can treat anything from stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia, up to chronic diseases. The older or more chronic the problem, the more treatments it may take to heal.The treatment is done through the transmission of ki (life force, energy, vital force, chi, and prana) channeled by the practitioner to the patient through the laying of hands.

Qigong

Qigong consists of a series of exercises combined with breath work directed at health and longevity. This is done by charging the body with new fresh energy, similar to Reiki, but without an intermediary. Oriental medicine focuses on achieving balance in all of your bodies, resulting in health, strength, and wellness.

Meditation

Meditation is a millenary technique for training the mind, calming it, centering it, and bringing it back to the present moment. There are hundreds or even thousands of studies that confirm the benefits of meditation both for the mind as for the body.

  • Tamara Allers

    Tamara Allers began her journey with yoga in 2009. She completed her first yoga teacher training at Ashiyana Yoga in Goa. From there, she traveled India taking her practice deeper into her body, mind, soul, and life experience. Her body consciousness was further expanded on through her schooling in Holistic Nutrition in Canada and completing her 500 RYTT. The foundation of her practice is rooted in Ashtanga. However, after 7 years of experience (both as a teacher and student), her teaching style has been broadened to include the yoga Sutra and the 8 limbs of yoga.

    "This wonderful place is really an oasis for people looking to get away from the bustle of life. Set in the jungle not far from the beach, it is peaceful. I love how the place is thoughtfully decorated, simple yet beautiful. Tito is a fantastic and kind host, making sure that everyone is comfortable and well taken care of. The other things I love are hot showers, a comfy bed, a hammock in front of each room to relax on, and Wi-Fi. I also met many wonderful people here and had a great time. I also had my first Reiki treatment here and it felt good. The only downside is that you would need to take a taxi into town to get food, but that is just 10 minutes away."

    "It's a perfect place to rest and enjoy the peaceful mountains of the coast of Ecuador. It's close to the touristic towns such as Montañita, Manglaralto, and Olon but far away enough to feel the relaxing ambient of this beautiful green space. I loved the surroundings, gardens, and decorations. My room was comfortable in every detail. It had space for clothes, a table, air conditioner, hot shower, and details that made the staying excellent. I met friendly staff and guests. It's also a perfect place to meditate and reconnect with nature. I loved it."

    "This is a fairly new one of kind retreat and healing place, where one can choose whether to go to the beach, go surfing, go bird watching, make your own barbecue and share with friends, take bicycles rides, horse rides, admire nature, and many more. You can also choose to re-energize, relax, and reconnect. It is a place where mind, body, and soul reunite. It's priced modestly indeed, very clean, and a friendly place. Just ask the manager, Tito, to book a room(s) for you."
