Our dear friend, We Are Local contributor and experienced Yogi, Amanda Gutmanis, has teamed up with locally owned Finisterra Travel to offer an amazing 13 day yoga trip – Colombia Yoga Journey into Magical Realism. Taking off on March 1 this tour promises to guide participants on a journey in inwards and outwards:
“On this Colombia Yoga Tour we have a chance to travel inwards through daily yoga practice, while you adventure outwards through three unique regions in beautiful Colombia, dubbed the land of ‘magical realism’, and home to the Amazon, the ‘lungs of our planet’. We will work our way through the framework of the chakra system with daily asana practice. This is a unique opportunity to explore inner and outer landscapes! Sustainable tourism practices are very important to us so we endeavour to support small local businesses and communities.”
What a way to explore a landscape — vamos!
- Participating in daily yoga classes that dovetail with the geographic locale & the itinerary of each particular day with 500 hour certified yoga instructor Amanda Gutmanis
