I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.....
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, and more popularly in the English-speaking world simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic.
We are happy to open EcoCamp’s new yoga dome for our 2015/16 season! Our friendly yoga instructor will be leading stretching and relaxing yoga sessions each morning & evening!
We’ve been planning the dome for some time now, convinced there is no better place in the world to practice yoga than in the middle of Torres del Paine National Park, surrounded by wilderness and looking up at the majestic granite peaks from the heart of EcoCamp.
Like all of EcoCamp’s domes
, the yoga dome is constructed in an eco-friendly way
, using minimal excavation and built on a raised wooden platform so as not to disturb the underlying vegetation. Its shape ensures minimal external surface area and minimum temperature exchange through walls, while skylight windows ensure natural heat and lighting is utilised. As with all of EcoCamp’s domes it blends into the surrounding environment with its lovely green exterior!
- EcoCamp’s yoga dome will host daily 1-hour relaxing yoga session each morning at 7.00am for all EcoCamp program participants who want to participate and stretch their muscles before their day’s hike or nature walk!
- Each evening at 6pm a complimentary stretching yoga class of one hour will be given in the yoga dome, for all EcoCamp program participants. Yoga classes will alternate between Hatha and Kundalini yoga.
- Each night guests are offered a choice of yoga activities for the following day, in their group briefing before dinner. You can check out the full weekly yoga dome itinerary.
During the week there is the possibility of doing group or private yoga classes.
Group classes (2-12 people) are held every day except weekends (Saturday-Sunday) in the yoga dome with all guests (on programs or single nights) welcome to participate! These classes last an hour and alternate between Hatha and Kundalini.
Private classes are also available at EcoCamp, at any time of day, to be decided between the instructor and the student(s). Anyone is welcome to take a private class, guest or non-resident. The type of yoga to be practiced is at the student’s discretion.
