Program

The wildlife expert will guide you through the rainforest where you will come across some of the most amazing plant, fungi, and wildlife species on the planet. You will experience Mother Nature in an entirely new and unique way. Yoga will be held in a beautiful maloca overlooking the Tambopata River.

You will also trek to a secluded lake for a full day of yoga surrounded by blue-and-yellow macaws nesting in the hollowed palm trees. The yoga will be mostly Hatha, incorporating Iyengar and Vinyasa yoga styles.

Due to the heat and humidity of the Amazon Rainforest, you can expect every class to feel like a hot yoga class. This is perfect for those looking for a detox or even those looking to shed a few pounds. By the end of the retreat, you will feel rejuvenated, realigned, and reconnected with the natural world.

About the yoga

This retreat will cycle through many styles of Hatha yoga including Viniyoga, Iyenger, Anusara, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, and Restorative yoga. Jaren will combine these styles of yoga to create a peaceful, graceful experience, individualized for each student. You will use the sounds of the forest to connect with Mother Nature during the sessions, connecting breath and movement. Each yoga session can be looked at as a hot yoga class due to the extreme humidity levels and heat of the Amazon Rainforest.

Day 1

The retreat will begin in Puerto Maldonado, Peru, where you will be transported from the airport/bus station to your first night’s accommodation in Puerto Maldonado, overlooking the Madre de Dios River. Once you are checked into your room, you will be able to enjoy the views from the hotel, take a trip to the local market, or just take a stroll through the town.

At 6 p.m., you will all gather for a meet and greet session before the 7 p.m. dinner reservations just across the street! After dinner, you will answer any questions that may come up and go over everything you need to know before taking off into the rainforest early the next morning.

Day 2

Breakfast will be awaiting you in the hotel restaurant at 7 a.m. Just after breakfast, set off on your journey. The eco-lodge can be reached by a one-and-a-half-hour car ride followed by a half-hour boat ride. You will arrive at the lodge mid-morning with refreshments awaiting. Upon arrival, you will receive a tour of the lodge, including the beautiful Maloca, where you will do the daily practices.

Once you have been shown to your room, you will have the freedom to relax at your leisure or go ahead and take advantage of the maloca. Lunch will be served at 1 p.m. each day. After lunch, you will meet in the maloca for a stress-releasing yoga class, followed by a slow walk through the rainforest guided by wildlife expert, Mark Fernley.

During the walk, you will arrive at an enormous mammal claylick. Most herbivorous mammals gather here to eat and bathe in the clay in order to get the salty nutrients their diets lack. Quickly install a motion-sensor camera trap here that you will leave for the entirety of the retreat to see the abundance of wildlife in the area.

Return to the lodge just in time to get showered for dinner. Dinner is served at 7 p.m. each day. After dinner, meet back in the maloca for a yoga circle followed by a gentle yoga flow to end the day.

Day 3

Wake up bright and early to the roars of the local howler monkeys, one of the loudest land animals on the planet, around 6 a.m. this will give you time to do your morning routine before you meet in the Maloca at 7 a.m. for your grounding but energizing one-hour yoga class. After, you will have time to shower and prepare for the nature walk that will happen straight after breakfast.

Breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. each day forward. You will spend the morning slowly walking through the forest, listening to the natural sounds of the animals surrounding you, and hopefully spotting a few as well! You will return to the lodge with plenty of time before lunch for you to relax, socialize, meditate, self-practice, etc.

Lunch will be served. At 2 p.m., meet back in the Maloca for a one-hour yoga class followed by a group discussion. After, you will have the choice of joining Mark on a nature walk or staying around the lodge to relax. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. After dinner, Mark will offer a night walk through the forest! This is exciting because most animals in the rainforest are most active after dark!

Day 4

You will have an early wake-up call at 4:30 a.m. Take a one-hour boat trip up-river to spend the morning at the Chuncho Claylick watching hundreds of macaws, parrots, and parakeets in their natural habitat. This is the largest macaw claylick in the world! You will have a packed breakfast to eat while on the beach watching the macaws and smaller parrots.

Return to the lodge just in time for lunch. At 2 p.m., you will have an hour-long Power yoga class incorporating balance, followed by an inversions workshop. You will then have time to relax before dinner. After dinner, Mark will offer a night walk, or you can join an hour-long Restorative yoga class.

Day 5

Wake up bright and early around 6 a.m. This will give you time to do your morning routine before you meet in the Maloca at 7 a.m. for your 1-hour yoga class. During this time, Mark will be collecting the camera trap for you to review the footage at dinner. After, you will have time to shower and prepare for another exciting day!

Today, take your mats and a packed lunch to a beautiful lake where you will spend the majority of the day. Here, enjoy seeing the blue and yellow macaws nesting. There is plenty of open grass areas to do yoga, meditate, and have group discussions. Since this is your last full day together, relax at this lake and enjoy each other’s company. Return to the lodge in time to shower and relax before dinner. After dinner, Mark will offer the last night walk.

Day 6

Wake up bright and early around 6 a.m. This will give you time to do your morning routine before you meet in the Maloca at 7 a.m. for your 1-hour yoga class. After the last class, you will have time to gather your belongings and meet back for breakfast at 8:30 a.m. After breakfast, you will be transferred back to Puerto Maldonado where you will have lunch in town and say farewells.

Nature and wildlife

Here in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest situated next to the Tambopata River in Madre de Dios, you will find yourself submerged in the isolated lands of the Amazon Rainforest. Here, wildlife is some of the most unusual and interesting waiting to be found. You will be guided by wildlife specialist Mark Fernley who will lead you through the forest in search of anything that moves among the vast rainforest tree giants.

During each day's walk, you will be guided through the vast forest in search of birds, mammals, such as the stunning Jaguar, and primates, such as the mischievous Capuchin and the astonishingly loud Howler monkeys of the forest. During the exciting night walks lead by Mark, you will be in search of tree frogs, insects, and Peru’s species of snakes that come in a range of shapes, colors, and sizes.

During the time of this relaxing and wildlife educational yoga retreat, you will have the opportunity to visit the famous Chuncho Claylick. This Claylick is known to be the largest parrot claylick in the world, bringing many species of macaw and parakeets every day to feast on the clay and socialize, making it one of the largest Macaw gatherings worldwide.

Outside of the macaw community, you will also get the chance to get to explore a small lake where wildlife can flourish in the sun. This open area is a great location for you to spot birds and become one with nature.
