Yoga & Carnival Retreat (Brazil)
Your days in Itacaré
We have designed a schedule to fit the needs for your body, mind and soul. However, in case you have a hard time relaxing in between our scheduled activities or if you wish to prolong your stay, we have good options for you. Tell us on spot if you wish to join more yoga classes, try stand up padling, sign up for massage, healing, surf, vegan food course, ziplining through the Atlantic rainforest, deep sea fishing, coloring your own scarf from roots hand picked by you from the jungle or if you simply want to learn how to make THE Caipirinha. We got you covered!
Getting settled before enjoying a private welcome dinner around the pool at our hotel.
We head for a full day excursion where we start the day with a shorter yoga class followed by our first samba-lesson. We will find ourselves learning how to move our booty's to the Samba rhythm in the middle of the jungle. It doesn't get much more Brazil than this! We continue the day with a brief tour around the land of a chocolate farm and make our own chocolate from fresh beans. After having enjoyed a vegetarian lunch at the farm we head to a local lagoon for a refreshing swim. When it is time to head back we get picked up by boat and get to enjoy the magnificent views of the jungle from the sea side. We ancor our boat in the best spot to watch the sunset while popping a bottle of bubbly and eating some snacks. In the evening we all meet for dinner at the hotel poolside-style.
Today we all get to try SUP Yoga with our Retreat Manager Bella as the master. She is a certified instructor and will make sure you all get to work on that balance of yours. We will have lunch at Iemanjá Beach Club overlooking the river and after that, our Samba teacher Keu will join us once again to make sure we are ready for the day to come.
The main Carnival eventday is here! During the day we will take it easy in order to save our energy for all the dancing that is about to happen from the evening until the morning! We start the day with some yoga at the beach followed by a relaxed beachday sipping coconuts and swimming in the deep blue. For lunch we will be served a pick nick on the beach in the shade of the coconut trees.
The afternoon is free for everyone to take a nice siesta slumber because as soon as the sun sets we will join the most famous Carnival bloco, a street party group, of the region: As Desconcentradas Bloco! It is a girl-only bloco where we all get sprinkled up with glitter, drink Caipirinhas, dance and laugh all night until sunrise! To make us all look as festive as possible we will have a makeup artist visiting us at the hotel (because today more is simply more). We are all wearing the same t-shirts in the bloco but feel free to go bananas on the rest of your outfit. There will be loads of accessories available to buy at the streets before the carnival, which also serves as great memories back home.
Everyone will be allowed to sleep in today! We all gather for lunch at noon and then everyone will get a massage to recover from yesterdays crazy samba explosion. Because yes, your body will need it. During sunset we all meet for a slow and stretchy yoga at the beach followed by dinner in town.
Get your sneakers on because today we are making a proper hike through the jungle with the local "McGiver-ish" guide. The destination of the hike is nothing less then the 5th most beautiful beach of Brazil – Prainha. At the remote beach we enjoy a tasty pick-nick, do a class of yoga and relax in the sun before heading back home.
Enjoying a nice breakfast before it is time for goodbye-hugging and email exchanging with new friends from all over the world.✨
Welcome to our hidden tropical oasis, a small family owned hotel close to the beach. You will be staying in bungalows where all the rooms have a terrace facing the poolside. If you ever get enough of the sun you have plenty of palm trees and banana leaves to hind beneath. The rooms have air condition, safety box, a fridge and of course a bathroom. Rooms sleeps one or two vagabonds.
In the reception you find a lounge area and always a happy face. If you look to your left you will also find a bar and (most of the time) a bartender who can provide you with a piece of heaven. Healthy choice or mood booster is up to you, we are in Brazil – everything is allowed. Even for yogis!
