With this Yoga session in the desert, it's a real nature present that we are making you. Here is your activity step by step:

Ballestas Islands - Ecotourism in Paracas

You will take the road at 7 am until Puerto del Chaco to enjoy a first contact with the grand birds biodiversity on the Ballestas Islands in Paracas. You will board for two hours on the sea and have a marine lunch in the Paracas bay to complete your boat crossing.

After lunch, you will have enough time to rest (about two hours) before going to the immense Ica desert.

Doing Yoga in the desert: a unique experience in Peru

You will take the road to the desert on Buggies at around 4 pm. For the travelers who are not familiar with the Buggies yet, these are little cars like 4X4 adapted to the desert and driving through the dunes looking for thrills! Beyond the adrenaline rush, driving in Buggies will let you enjoy the amazing landscapes the desert is offering you.

After having felt so many emotions, you will finally enjoy your Yoga Flow session in the desert. The Yoga Flow, described as a "series of movements synchronized with breathing", relaxes your body in an open space, in this case in a completely natural environment, enabling a best oxygenation in a pure and contamination-freed area. All this enjoying a breathtaking landscape!

This exercise or discipline will be combined with Peruvian ancestral rituals, in gratitude for the elements surrounding you, such as the sun (el Sol / Tayta Inti), the moon (la Luna / la Killa), the wind (el viento / Wayra), the sky (el cielo) and the Earth (la Pachamama).

The Yoga session will last about 2 hours. Activity will end at around 6 pm.
