Patagonia

Yoga + Adventure

Patagonia is a remote and rugged region that spans the southern part of South America, often referred to as “the end of the world.” Join Vajra Sol for a life-changing Patagonia yoga retreat in the pristine, wild, and stunning mountains of Chile.

Our Patagonia yoga adventure is hosted at the award-winning and environmentally sustainable EcoCamp, located in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. Explore the vast landscape on guided hikes, including to the base of the famous “Torres.” Commence and end your day with inspiring yoga sessions. Enjoy gourmet meals and share all with new friends. Fall 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. We enjoy daily yoga practices in the Yoga Dome looking out to the vast Patagonian pampa. Our morning practice is more energizing with vinyasa flow yoga. In the afternoon we restore with a more gentle practice and drop into guided meditation sessions. 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 mile trek to the Towers’ base. 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 Mountain Adventure

Our Patagonia yoga retreat is hosted at a multi-award winning lodge in the heart of the Torres del Paine National Park. The group meets in the gateway town to Patagonia, Punta Arenas. There, we stay one night at a 4-star hotel. The following day, the group transfers to EcoCamp Patagonia, our home for six nights. After settling in, our days are spent practicing yoga, hiking in the park, and exploring the beautiful Patagonia region.

This is our most physically demanding yoga retreat, culminating with an optional 14-mile trek to the base of the Torres del Paine monoliths.

Because Chile is in the southern hemisphere, November through March is the spring to summer season.

The area’s remoteness provides the added bonus of being able to disconnect from technology. This allows for a week of digital detox.

Guest Reviews

trip advisor

“By far, the best was meeting new friends and spending time with new people getting to know them all over a week of learning, laughing, playing and socializing. We had a truly magnificent week overall. This was our 5th trip with Vajra Sol we always look forward to Sandra’s next adventure!”

- Chris, Ontario

Our goal was to get deeper into our (beginning) yoga practice in a beautiful, peaceful setting. We joined a wonderful group, who quickly became friends. Sandra was outstanding as a teacher … We were very diverse in age, experience, gender and background, yet Sandra connected with us all very quickly and (seemingly) effortlessly. As a wonderful bonus, she organized complementary activities for each of us that fit beautifully with our interests and abilities.

- Helen & Bill, Montana

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this experience, it is life changing … There is a perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Sandra is an amazing yoga teacher and teaches to all levels. I am an experienced yogi but there were also those who had little to no experience and they did great. The staff was warm and friendly. The food was superb. Definitely do not hesitate to book this trip.
