Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Ecuador.
Allow yourself to drift away in the breeze, in the sand, and in the waves of yoga & meditation. Join us for a holidays in the cozy beach town of Mompiche, Esmeraldas. From December 28 to January 1st, 2019, Durga´s Tiger School will be hosting a 5 day New Year, New Visions retreat.
Through meditation, yoga, shamanic journey, art and dance we will create a space to "go in", "re-visit", and "process" the passing year. On the 31st of December, we will make a farewell ceremony of all that has passed and celebrate all that is to come. Providing the accommodations will be Maracumbo Camping & Cabins, just a five minute walk from the shore. There will be the possibility to do a ceremony with the sacred Yage, a power plant from the Ecuadorian Amazon, that is used as a medicine from different cultures in Ecuador and South America.
To participate in the Yage ceremony, you need enough time to prepare yourself for the experience and also time to process all the teachings of the medicine, which is why we require that all guests arrive no later than the Dec 29th and stay 2 or 3 nights after the ceremony.
Included in the price will be two meals a day (breakfast and lunch), meditation, yoga, as well as extra workshops such as Nature Mandala Creation, mantra singing and Shamanic Dance.
This is time to harvest and reap the abundance of this fortifying life. Nestled on the edge of the ocean, we will feel the transformative power of this magnificent place.

Maracumbo Camping & Cabañas has shared bathrooms, showers, and a community kitchen for the people who want to cook for themselves at night. There is also free Wifi access for the people that need internet connection.
You will enjoy Vegetarian and Vegan Breakfasts and lunches included in the price. It’ s important for us that the people can stay focused on the classes that will always start on time and use their free time to enjoy and connect with the surroundings or do extra activities which can benefit your journey.
In the night, time you can go out for dinner, stay at the camping where there is dinner service too for 5 USD extra, or just cook for yourself.
