The Sapara are an ancient people, which have lived in what is now the Ecuadorian Amazon for millennia. During that time, they have developed an inseparable relationship with the land on which they live that directly defines their identity. Their knowledge of their environment (and thus themselves) through their language, stories, songs, and culture was recognized by UNESCO in 2001 as intangible cultural heritage.
Namaste Ecuador is a specialized travel itinerary for those who love both adventure and Yoga. This experience allows you to combine the very best of adventure tourism, without leaving behind your lifestyle, as you practice yoga in different locations throughout your trip. A regular day in this itinerary starts early with a delicious breakfast, mountain hiking and a relaxing Yoga session with one of our certified Yoga Teachers. What’s best about this itinerary is all of these things will be done while discovering Ecuador and its biodiversity.
Shamanic Journey is a unique experience, a concept that we are not faced with frequently. More than offering something that involves mere mundane sensations, we offer you activities that transcend. We will immerse ourselves in Andean traditions; where new perceptions will surface and knowledge will be attained through Temazcal Ceremonies and Tobacco rituals. With a Shaman, we will learn about the power of healing plants and foods; which will be served in a Pambamesa (a meal which is shared amongst a group of people, in the Andean tradition) giving a particular familiar tone to this spiritual journey.
