This town in the province of Córdoba offers a unique landscape that has made it one of the favorite places for those seeking relaxation with the practice of yoga, tai chi, and a series of wellness techniques, as well as alternative therapies.

In this quiet, meditative place, stands the renowned Shobogenji Zen Temple, the first in Latin America dedicated to Buddhist practices and a retreat for the local and international shanga community. Yoga enthusiasts enjoy this discipline surrounded by lush vegetation and extensive wildlife that lives in this wide valley, which also has rocky slopes that invite contemplation. Several tour operators offer three-day packages at this magnificent site that include Buddhist meditation, mantra workshops, Hatha yoga, and reading Buddhist texts, among others.

This fantastic place of Rio de Janeiro is located between the beach and the mountains, two perfect places for relaxation and the connection of body and soul. Yoga practitioners find in Lumiar, a natural area protected by the Brazilian government, the necessary elements for meditation with the clean air of the Atlantic Ocean.

The extraordinary beaches of golden sand and crystal clear waters are perfect for long yoga sessions and then visit the various restaurants of the place that offer a lot of quality gastronomic options. Hatha yoga retreats include meditation, shamanic healing, mantra bonfire, vegetarian meals, relaxing massages, and nights of accommodation, among others.

This site, located in Cartagena, is one of the most popular retreat spots in Colombia because it's away from the noise of the cities and perfect to disconnect from the daily routine.
