Our Yoga style reflects the creativity and fluid movement of Vinyasa Yoga, the refined alignment and heart opening of Anusara Yoga, and the community building elements of Partner Yoga and Acro Yoga.
Our practice and lifestyle is embedded with Vaisnava Philosophy of loving service to the Divine. We see this practice as a way to purify and awaken our consciousness as well as inspire our daily lives.

How to get to Cali:
Coming from USA there are direct flights from Miami and Newark Airport, you can also call in Bogota (1hr) or Panama City (1hr)
If you come from South America there are direct flights from Quito, Guayaquil and Lima.
Airlines: American, United, LAN, Avianca, Taca and Spirit Airlines.
For flights within Colombia the best options are: Vivacolombia, Avianca and LAN.
If you arrive during the day there is a small bus that takes you from the airport to the Bus Terminal in Cali for approximately $ 4 USD (7,000 pesos) and takes around 30min. Ask for the “buseta” that arrives at the terminal.
Arriving by Bus:
We live relatively close to the North Bus Terminal, so if you are coming from the south of Colombia or from Ecuador you will have to go through all of Cali to get here.
If you are arriving from Bogotá by bus, you will arrive at the Bus Terminal when entering the city (from the north). The trip from Bogota takes approximately 10-12 hours.
From the bus terminal there are taxis with taximeters that can be brought to the estate for approximately 17,000 pesos Eco-Ashram. On Sundays and holidays and after 8pm you will be charged 1,200 pesos more than what comes out in the Taximeter. Make sure the taxi driver lights the meter when you ride the car.
