The destination

Our Itacaré, Brazil Yoga Teacher Training program will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in your yoga practice and give you a deep sense of the rich culture that Brazil has to offer. The famous surf town - Itacaré - is located in the center of a very potent land that provides jungle, mountains, rivers, canyons and beautiful beaches to roam and explore. Deep in the Atlantic Rainforest, surrounded by lush green rainforest and bright blue palm tree lined skies, you will find yourself truly connected to Mother Earth.

Itacaré is the thriving cultural and spiritual surf Mecca of Brazil. Home to Brazil’s yoga, art and health scene, it provides a sanctuary in an idyllic, nurturing space, full of the revitalizing qualities of the abundant land. The opportunities for massage, surfclasses, yoga and more are abundant in this beautiful place!


Training location and travel logistics

Our training will take place at the famous Villa Estrela! The bungalows are all located in the same private and oasis-like tropical garden as our Yoga studio. The bungalows are a blend of a modern Scandinavian design and Bahian construction and each bungalow has a fully equipped kitchen, a living room with a dining area, a spacious bathroom, a comfortable bedroom, a bed with a deluxe mosquito net and a balcony or patio with a jungle view or garden. Air Con, WiFi, Cable TV and kitchen supplies are also available. The bungalow’s are located 50 meters from Concha beach so a morning-dip is simply a must. Rooms sleeps one or two Yogis.

You can choose to fly to Ilheus or Salvador. If you fly to Ilheus (a smaller airport where airfairs might be more expensive) you will only take a 1 hour cab ride to Itacaré. If you fly into Salvador’s International Airport, you can either take a cab ride to Itacaré (costs around 800 BRL) or cross over to Itaparica island with the ferry and from there take the bus to Itacaré (costs around 50 BRL). Both options take about 6 hours. The Soulful Kind would be happy to help you organize a reliable cab from Ilheus or Salvador if you notify us beforehand by email.
