The yoga retreat will take place in Casa Kiliku, in the Andes of Ecuador, close to the capital Quito and on the edge of a natural reserve. You will be located three kilometers from the village of Tumbaco, surrounded by high trees and mountains. The Kiliku is a little hawk living here on the volcano, the Ilal. For the people, it is the symbol of freedom and as it is seeing the reality from high above. It means that this place helps the yoginis to get a distance from their everyday life to fly into the experience of living in a yoga ashram, enjoying the green garden surrounding with flowers and old trees. The little village bus stops in front of Durgas Tiger Schools door.
