Enjoy a wellness adventure while you visit two hotspots of Ilha Grande and Paraty to calm your senses and inspire any ocean lover with daily yoga classes for all levels.

Yoga classes

There will be two daily yoga classes, a morning and evening class, based on the schedule and arrangements of the daily itinerary. The yoga classes are a mixture of Hatha, Vinyasa flow, and Iyengar combining relaxation, physical postures, and some meditation. The classes vary and are adjusted to the level of each student in the group. Beginners are welcome.

During the classes, you are encouraged to not go beyond your own comfort level. As a yoga practitioner, it is your responsibility to take control of your own wellness and flexibility during each yoga class. You should remember that it is not the stamina or flexibility that creates the experience of yoga, but your own personal experience of it.
