SAMPLE DAILY ITINERARY:
Day 1: Welcome and Orientation
Day 2: Tour of Quito - Teleferico Cable Ferry Ride, Yoga Practice, followed by Quito City Day Tour
Day 3: Yoga, Amazon Cascade and Nature Tour
Day 4: Yoga, Equinox at the Equator – Farmer’s Market, Intiñan Solar Museum & Temple Del Sol
(This tour will provide a fantastic setting to practice yoga on location. Great for photos and video, it is also a very spiritual environment. Being centered at the Equator is quite a special and surreal experience.)
Day 5: Yoga, Otavalo Traditional Market and Cuicocha Crater with Yoga Practice
Day 6: Yoga, Tumbaco - Swimming Pool & Chiche Canyon
Day 7: Yoga, Mindo Rain Forest - Zipline, Hike and Swim
(This is a great day to connect with nature, water and fulfill that adrenaline seeker's rush by zipping through the jungle like Tarzan and Jane. A big treat is eating the chocolate bars and brownies in Mindo. The cacao that makes chocolate comes from Ecuador that gets distributed around the world and for that reason the chocolate in Ecuador is the #1 place to enjoy it. It is quite heavenly and chocolate lovers will be thrilled.)
Day 8: Yoga, Papallacta - Hot Thermal Springs, Visit School and Departure
(A great way to give back to the community is to give the gift of Yoga Practice to a school. MVI Ecuador says, "The Ecuadorians were so thrilled to learn and practice yoga for the first time." You as a student will act as instructors for the participants. A great way to rejuvenate during the week is to indulge at the Hot Thermal Springs. This will be the best feeling of wellness and rejuvenation a person's body will feel. The volcanic properties from the water help alleviate all stress and the body gets a 100% recharge.)
