"Off the beaten path Brazil and Yoga ex "
This retreat was exactly what I needed and truly changed my life. I hadn’t practiced yoga much to this point but the intro to yoga on the backdrop of the incredible Brazilian beaches and the mountains was incredible. For the first time I truly understood the value and how yoga and meditation can change your life if you commit to it. Jessica is an incredible yoga teacher and it was so fun practicing with her as she walked through everything and when in the mountains we tried various types of yoga that I never had before including partner yoga, and acro yoga etc. Within just one week I could already feel myself and my body getting stronger and felt more grounded and at peace. I would’ve never felt the connection I have discovered to yoga if it wasn’t for this retreat and for that I am incredibly grateful. Jessica, Claudia, Aline and others were all very kind, attentive, and accommodating to any needs as they came up. The highlight of the retreat was the shamanic healing ceremony, I had no idea what this was going to be like or what to expect but the experience changed my my entire perspective on the whole universe. The shamans are incredible people who show unconditional love and the power that resides in nature but also in yourself. I will forever be connected to them and this whole experience. It’s not what I was expecting but know it was what I needed, I would go back and would absolutely reccomend to others as well.

"Life changing retreat! "
First, Jessica is a fabulous host and incredible yoga teacher. Despite juggling with her family life, she always made sure my needs were met at all times. Aline, who works with her, also ensured I always had a good time and catered for all my needs and desires. The ayahuasca ceremonies with the shaman were life changing. I am so lucky and grateful I experienced ayahuasca surrounded by these caring people. I could not have asked for better! It was far stronger and life changing than I could have ever imagined. Highly recommend this retreat for people who are ready to make the change.

"Best ever all-round yoga and cultural experience in Brazil"
I loved the accessibility and generosity of our host and yoga teacher extended to me for the entire time I was there. I loved the thought that has gone into the program I participated in and how Jessica is able to give a well rounded yoga experience as well as sharing all the wonderful things she loves about Brazil and Lumier.

"Tranquility, peace, transforming practice makes you yearn for more so much "
The whole experience of the yoga retreat in Lumiar was perfect.
From the personalized and flexiabke organization by Jessica, to the homey feeling of the paradise farm in Lumiar, mouthwatering food and most importantly a learning practice beyond yoga.
An opportunity to meet wonderful team that really care for your every need while giving you the space and tranquility that you want.
Lumiar, only 2h30 from Rio, will have you wanting more and planning your return.

"Allemaal net niet goed."
De yogalessen, massages en andere activiteiten waren hoofdzakelijk goed.
Ons afscheidsetentje in een restaurant vlakbij was erg gezellig.

Todo está organizado como para que uno pase una estadía perfecta. Los lugares donde se desarrollan estas actividades son bellísimos, tanto Lumiar como Buzios. Ademas del excelente nivel de las clases de yoga y meditación impartidas, aportan mucho los comentarios relacionados con yoga como estilo de vida. El grupo de gente allí es de gran calidad humana. La comida es muy sana, orgánica y muy rica. Las excursiones ofrecidas todos los días son increíbles! Desde paseos en jeep por la selva hasta recorrido en bote por Arraial del Cabo. Todo conspira para que uno pase una estadía genial!!! Combinando yoga, meditacion, comida sana, musica local y excursiones increíbles!

Me gustó absolutamente todo. La hospitalidad de la pousada, las comidas, las excursiones, las playas de Búzios. Y por sobretodas las cosas, las prácticas de yoga y las meditaciones. La filosofía que siguen del yoga es ideal y aprendí mucho.
I had a great time in the retreat! Jessica hosted us with warm and good environment that propitiated a nice bond between us all. We had yoga classes in the morning and by the end of the evening everyday, which was great to start and finish our daytime. Jessica shared with us some of her knowledge and experiences and encouraged us to explore ourselves. The house is placed in a beautiful location in the mountains and has a good weather this time of year. In my case, since I love radical sports, I was thrilled to have the chance to get some adrenaline on waterfalls and repel rides.
