Come and join Micheline Berry and Joey Lugassy for immersion into Brazil’s verdant wilds, pristine beaches, and waterfalls as well as its rich cultural heritage and intoxicating rhythms of the carnival. Satisfy your hunger for the uncommon, the eco-adventurous, the culturally authentic, and the gastronomically piquant. Your once in a lifetime curation of insider’s experiences will have you living like a local.
You will be staying first four nights at Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro and the next four nights at Maraú, Bahia.
Your Brazil yoga meets culture insider’s adventure begins with four nights in Rio de Janeiro on the non-touristic side of legendary Ipanema Beach. Experience Samba blocos (street parties), beach frolic, and radical eco-adventures by day and gastronomy adventures, carnival festivities, and samba dancing by night. You’ll be joined by master teacher and cultural guide, Lucia Cordeiro.
Following the Rio adventure, you will retreat into to the healing waters and Afro-Brazilian rhythms of Bahia beginning with a capoeira or percussion immersion with Mestre Cabello Rolim and an epic frolic in one of the favorite waterfalls. A hidden gem where the original Atlantic rainforest still touches the ocean, your home in Maraú Bahia is a stunning boutique collection of seaside Brazilian-Moroccan eco-chic bungalows.
You’ll frolic in crystalline ocean waters and waterfalls alike, enjoy healing bodywork, and feast on Bahian farm-to-table gastronomy. Here you’ll experience refined creature comforts aligned with a deep respect for the rainforest ecology around yourself.
This retreat will take place in various locations in Brazil. You will visit Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.
The retreat includes daily breakfast in both the locations, two dinners in Rio, and all meals in Bahia.
Enjoy hang gliding off of Pedra Bonita and healing bodywork. All these optional activities are subject to additional costs.
