Yogascapes Ecuador Yoga Retreat with The Pachamama Alliance

This is an extraordinary opportunity to travel with purpose, both to tether your heart to your purpose in life and to take a stand for our precious earth by supporting a beautiful project that protects one of, if not the most important natural habitats in the world. On this special journey, we will spend time with the legendary Achuar, whose courageous warrior spirit is dedicated to protecting the pristine rainforest on behalf of us all, and the deeply spiritual Sápara whose commitment to the healing power of the forest and finding viable alternatives to oil exploitation has preserved their culture against all odds.

THE HEART // Our mission at Yogascapes is to heal the world through healing the individual and the community. The more we explore the world, the more we learn how important it is to have the gift of our inward journey expressed by making a stand for what we believe in and we believe in saving this beautiful planet that gives to us without ever asking for anything in return.  We embark on this journey to visit two indigenous cultures who embody the inward journey and the outward protection of mother earth. As Yogascapes grows we commit to supporting these cultures, not just so that we ourselves can learn from them, but so that we can help them protect the pristine rainforest for all people now and generations to come.

Mashpi Lodge

As you descend into the forest of Mashpi, you are let in on a secret. The curtain draws back and you’re led in to the backstage of the universe, stepping between the spotlights of the sunshine filtering down through the canopy as tropical birds and howler monkeys orchestrate the soundtrack. Perhaps it’s here where the most exciting event is enacted.

Here, every element, from the leaves of every shape, size and colour imaginable to the drops of rain that bounce off them and the animals they quench, plays its role in the greatest show that most will never see, working together in incandescent harmony.

This place, this steaming, breathing, living entity, where the air is rich with life and clouds linger like disembodied spirits, is not only the lungs, but the soul of the Earth.

Casa Kiliku Yoga Retreat Center

The Retreat Center Casa Kiliku is a place created by artists. The furnished houses and appartments are built by materials from our volcano, with bricks or adobe and wood. Every space is unique: you can enjoy living in the Andes in “The Tower”, in “The Palm Suite”, the big “Star house” or in the little “Garden House”. You can participate in dance or yoga classes in the Sala Kiliku or give a workshop yourself. You can stay on the big terrace and chat with other guests who are staying here. Or just lie in the hammock and read or meditate on treetops dancing in the wind.

La Casa Hostel in Ayampe

Five years prior to getting married to Arian, José moved to Ayampe with a dream to create a community-based home where you can share your culture, stories, and values with travelers from all over the world.

Together, we strive to provide a haven for the traveler who desires their independence and privacy, while still having the opportunity to share stories, meals, and adventures with other travelers. We like to say La Casa doesn’t have guests; it has a family… so you may come solo, but you will leave with a family.

One of our favorite thing to do as retreat designers is to find the most enchanting, unique and breath taking yoga retreats around the world. While others might limit themselves to actual retreat centers, we are experts are finding boutique hotels, spas, eco-lodges and design hotels that create the perfect retreat space, even if they aren't specifically yoga retreat centers. Places where the architecture, the food, the yoga space, the nature, the activities and the people create a potent combination of nourishment, rejuvenation and transformation.
