Ted Travels: Exotic places to practice Yoga in Latin America
Travelling halfway across the world can sometimes get the body out of balance. If you have clients that are looking for a holiday of a lifetime in Latin America combining the holiday with wellness we have the places for you.
Latin America´s ancient cultures have been known for practising the art of wellness with traditional medicine, the Incas and the Mayans created their ¨Sweat lodges¨ to release the toxins from the body. Until today, sweat lodges can be found in many spas, and the locals keep their ancient roots and ways using hot stones and herbal medicine. We can book your clients in for a day of relaxation and wellness to experience these ancient traditions.
Travellers wanting to embark on a spiritual journey, Latin America not only keep alive their ancient roots, but also we can suggest the best places to practice different sorts of yoga and meditation.
We can organize a yoga session in Lima, by booking a half day health and wellness Yoga and Meditation activity where they can relax while rejuvenating on a Sound Healing session. This experience involves a Kundalini Yoga practice where the experts will share their homemade vegan snacks and recipes, but also a stroll through the bohemian neighbourhood of Barranco to visit some of its iconic spots!
In the Galapagos Islands we recommend a stay on the main island at Galapagos Safari Camp, this place not only offers a great way to see the ecosystem but also has an incredible viewpoint where guests can have a relaxing session of yoga and -why not- a cocktail afterwards!
Clients travelling in Mexico will be delighted to stay at some of the villas dedicated to the ultimate yoga, meditation and Pilates classes. Puerto Vallarta and Tulum are just two of the many places where your clients will be truly relaxed while they soak up the warm breeze of the sea, the question is: the Caribbean or the Pacific Ocean?
How about yoga inside a dome? Located in a quiet natural setting with views of the granite peaks, EcoCamp in Torres del Paine is just the ultimate place for maximum appreciation of nature while clients balance their chakras. The Camp offers different kinds of Yoga practices that will allow guests to feel rebalanced and re-energised after exploring this incredible park.
In the Sacred Valley, there are many opportunities for clients looking to connect with Pachamama. But that’s not all, the Amazon and the Atacama Desert are two impressive landscapes that are embedded with spiritual meaning and where clients can connect with their inner self and nature.
We have many other options for your clients travelling in Latin America, from wineries to National parks, talk to one of our agents so we can suggest the most interesting spots for this practice and get your clients an integrated holiday experience like no one else!
