Our Retreat led by Ari Brasil and Julie Baker was designed to revitalize and harmonize your mind and body. What distinguishes Iyengar Yoga is the very high degree of attention paid to alignment.

A strong practice that incorporates dynamic, static and restorative postures to firm the body and steady the mind.

THE GUIDES

  • TESTIMONIALS

    “ I went to Brazil May 2018 and the experience was amazing. Ari and Ryan took care of everything. Everyone was so open and kind. Food was incredible, and I'm not vegan; accomodations were just rustic enough to feel like an adventure, without actually having to forgo comforts. Swimming under a waterfall was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I got to experience a piece of the culture. My only critique was that I definitely recommend more Maracatu! ” Cayley, California, 2018
  • TESTIMONIALS

    “ I went on the Terra Retreat to Brazil in May and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life so far. Ari did a fantastic job of curating the entire experience from the lodging, the hikes, plan{e}t medicine ceremonies and morning yoga, everything was perfect. Not to mention, the food was off the charts amazing(If you went just to eat you'd be happy you did). Throughout the retreat I was given space to expand into a more full expression of my truest self and that in of itself is absolutely priceless. Ari is dedicated to making sure that all of the participants' needs and desires are met and she is absolutely one of the most generous and loving souls I have ever been in contact with. If you feel even slightly called to it, I can say for sure that this is a space you can put your fullest trust into and upon returning home you will find you have gotten much more out of it than you ever could have put in. Take the leap! “ Jeffrey, Maryland, 2018
  • TESTIMONIALS

    “ Ari really sets the bar high when it comes to yoga retreats. Truth be told it was actually allot more than just a “yoga retreat” Each day was jam packed with so much fun and adventure. Not to mention 3 nights of ayahuasca/ kambo ceremonies , needless to say our scheduled rest days were much appreciated. All in all my time in Brazil was something special I will cherish the rest of my life. Super grateful to have gotten to meet all the amazing people who participated in the retreat. By the end of the 10 days we had become like a little family which made an already awesome trip even better. To Ari, thanks again for everything! best of luck with your future Terra Retreats and I hope to participate in one again soon! “ Austin, Connecticut, 2018
