True Nature Yoga Retreat 

in the Cloud Forest of Ecuador

Friday, August 4th - Saturday, August 12th, 2023

Join the Waitlist!

Join Vanessa and Meg on an intimate Yoga retreat adventure, this Summer! Located in the Cloud Forest of Ecuador, on the outskirts of the small town of Mindo, La Lomita is an off-grid/ solar-powered hacienda that expertly combines rustic & luxurious, for a breathtaking, cloud forest experience.


Our hosts are located approximately 2 hours from Quito.

Chocó Andino de Pichincha, where Mindo is located, was declared a new Unesco Biosphere Reserve. Covering an altitudinal range of 360 to 4,480 meters, this encompasses a region considered to be one of the most biodiverse hotspots in the world. With a biosphere representing over 270 species of mammals and greater than 450 species of birds (in the Mindo region alone),  the Cloud Forest boasts a diverse flora & fauna, unlike anything most have ever seen. Known for outdoor lovers, this area offers an array of activities such as hiking, biking, zip lining, birding, night walking, mountain climbing, river tubing, horseback riding, coffee and chocolate making, frogs singing, gondolas, and a butterfly garden. Let's add some great food, yoga, meditation, and relaxation to the mix for an experience of a lifetime.
