Yoga & Meditation in Roraima

26 December 2017 - 4 January 2018

 

Take a break and allow yourself to be in nature. Breathe and improve your connection to your inner world. Renew your vital energy, bringing peace to your mind and health to your body from the top of the sacred Mount Roraima.

 

A stunning trail along the Gran Sabana with the incredible view of Roraima will connect us to nature before reaching the top. We'll explore the top for four days. At the top, we will experience natural ponds, caves, a waterfall, and the triple point of frontier between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana.

 

Days: 10
Difficulty level: Medium
Trekking: 4-5 hours/day

 

 

 

The retreat, 'Yoga & Meditation in Mount Roraima', was done to set the intention to 'Recover our Original Vibration' and bring calmness and clarity to our mind. The program will allow you to experience the deep connection with nature and recharge your vital energy. Our greatest guru (master) is nature. Cultivating silence helps enrich this experience.

 

The program involves walking meditation, relaxation with focus on breathing, yoga, and silent meditation, allowing you to open a space beyond the mind and connect with your true source of wisdom.

 

Our trip to Roraima begins in Boa Vista. Here we take a van to Paraitepui, the nearest indigenous community of Roraima. We rest the first night to gather energy for the adventure that awaits us. This is where we start walking. We walked the trails of the Sabana for two days before arriving at the base of the mountain. The journey to the base leads us to unforgettable views of Sabana, endemic flora and fauna and various rivers. We came to the top through an arduous trail and spent two days there. The local experienced guide will lead us through unimaginable rocky formations, caves, a waterfall that forms in a deep hole, and the triple boundary point. In the next two days, we return to Paraitepui, where we take transportation to Boa Vista.
