The Om Eco Yoga Park is an Ecovillage and Yoga Ashram. The Park was created in 2002 and it’s located just 25 Km. from the city of Medellín, among Antioquia’s green mountains and countryside; an extraordinary environment to tune in with nature. We are a community of people from different ages that have a holistic life style and that live with respect and in harmony with the environment, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
All the projects we work in have a sustainable character. The Park is an ideal place for Volunteering, Yoga Retreats, Mystic and Ecological Tourism. In our Organic Garden, we produce part of the food that we eat in our vegetarian/vegan outdoor dining hall, and we are currently developing a program in Eco-Buildings, with very modern, artistic and comfortable designs, using natural elements.
Throughout the year, volunteers and tourists from all ages and from all over the world come to the Park to discover their abilities, come in contact with mother earth, help us improve our community, learn languages and enjoy an attractive experience in a unique natural environment.
