It is about showing the path of the heart and following your intuition and introducing to them a certain lifestyle that might inspire them to see the world in a different way. Vikaralifestyle combines daily exercises, breathing meditations, yoga and acrobatics, quality nutrition, connection to nature and working on your lives goals.

She is a direct disciple of professor Eucaris Navarro, who is also her mother. In 2010, after six years of practice and training, she obtained her certification as a yoga instructor at Escuela Ymaa Zhenhe and has been dedicated since then to teaching both adults and children.

This retreat will take place in Olon, Ecuador. Olon is a small, sleepy, and charming village. The beach in Olon is clean and sandy, which is good for surfing and hiking. Migrating humpback whales can be spotted from the beach from August to November and sunsets are spectacular all year round. The village is authentic with a real sense of community: fisherman selling their daily catch, coconuts on the beach, local produce of fruits and vegetables, parrots, pelicans, pirate birds, and palm trees.
