About this trip

Join Maile for an 8 days/7 nights all inclusive Galapagos wildlife and yoga adventure.  Much more than a yoga retreat, each day we explore the many islands of the Galapagos with a naturalist guide.  This is a bucket list journey of a lifetime with boat trips, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking and practicing yoga will gazing at giant tortoises roaming the 12 acre retreat property.  The Galapagos is unlike anywhere else on the planet, and we'll be playing and exploring together, forging close connections while sharing special experiences.


We'll most likely encounter blue footed boobies, frigate birds, giant tortoises, sea lions, sharks and marine iguanas.  And, if we're lucky, penguins, manta rays, Darwin Finches, Yellow Warblers, Dark Billed Cuckoos and Galapagos Mockingbirds.
