Patagonia

Yoga + Adventure

Patagonia is a remote and rugged region that spans the southern end of South America, often referred to as “the end of the world.” Join Vajra Sol for a yoga adventure in the pristine, wild, and stunning mountain scenery that takes your breath away.

Our Patagonia retreat is hosted at the award-winning and environmentally sustainable EcoCamp, located in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. You are invited to explore the vast landscape on guided hikes, including to the base of the famous “Torres,” commence and end your day with yoga, enjoy gourmet meals, and share all with new friends before falling asleep under the star-filled sky of your cozy dome. Be ready for an extraordinary yoga adventure!

Retreat Highlights

yoga

Get ready to drop into soulful yoga sessions with majestic mountain views. Most days, we will enjoy a morning and afternoon yoga practice with the retreat group. Our morning practice will be more energizing with vinyasa flow yoga. In the afternoon, we will restore and meditate, including the highly restful practice of Yoga Nidra. All yoga will be led by your retreat guide, Sandra, and will be accessible to all levels.

hiking

The best way to explore Patagonia is on foot, with an expert guide and your fellow travelers. Hikes include an excursion to Laguna Azul, or Blue Lagoon, for a 3 mile nature walk, a visit to Grey Lake and Glacier that will include boat trip, and maybe a glimpse of an Andean condor, and finally, a 14 miles trek to the Towers base. The Torres del Paine consists of three gigantic granite monoliths, the remains of a great cirque sheared away by the forces of glacial ice.

ecocamp domes

Remote and first class, EcoCamp Patagonia is an innovative leader in environmentally sustainable design, creating the world’s first lodge in geodesic shape in 2001. They offer accommodations inspired by the region’s ancient nomadic inhabitants. All domes are immersed in nature, resistant to the Patagonian elements, cozy and warm, and have ceiling windows to look up at the starry night sky.

About the Retreat

Patagonia High Mountain Adventure

Our Patagonia retreat is about disconnecting from technology and reconnecting with nature, with ourselves, and with those that share our journey.  Patagonia is our most physically demanding retreat, culminating with a 14 mile trek to the base of the Torres del Paine monoliths. The group will meet in the gateway to Patagonia, Punta Arenas, where will enjoy a nice meal and stay in a 4-star hotel. The following day, the group will transfer to EcoCamp Patagonia in Torres del Paine National Park, where we will stay for 6 nights, practicing yoga, hiking the Andes, exploring the beautiful Patagonia region, and connecting with fellow retreat guests.

Guest Reviews

trip advisor

“My husband and I recently returned from Vajra Sol’s trip to Peru. Sandra led such an amazing retreat and it was obvious from the start. Everything was taken care of from the moment we touched down in Cusco until our return back to the airport. We are already looking forward to joining her on a future retreat!”

Vera, New York

“This was my 5th time with Vajra Sol and I loved every moment of it. Sandra is over accommodating to your needs. The scene and location of your villa and yoga experience is out of this world. Trust me, this is the best retreat out there for YOGA, SUPING and Surfing.”

Steve P, Conneticut

“Go on one of Vajra Sol’s retreats; you won’t regret it. You may even
conquer some fears and surprise yourself, like I did. You will make new friends and have memories to last a lifetime! This was a life changing experience for me!”
