Yoga - About


Om (or Aum, ॐ), the sacred syllable, is one of the most sacred Hindu symbols and mantras (the chanting of sacred words or sounds). OM is considered the primitive divine vibration of the Universe representing all existence. The mother of all sounds, AUM is equivalent to AMEN in the Christian tradition. The sound AUM allows to purify body, mind and the surroundings. To listen to OM

It is with the intention of creating a special place to gather, practice, share and learn about healthy living that Johanne started her yoga project at Tambo Ilusión. Johanne is now pleased to invite yoga teachers to offer their retreats in the beautiful conservation area of Tambo Ilusión.

Yoga space

One's yoga practice begins as one enters Tambo Ilusión property and is embraced by Pachamama or Allpamama (mother earth). Its striking natural setting: the mountains, the valley, the natural spring which has formed a gorgeous lagoon and stream, the beautiful tropical foliage and the sounds of nature make ACP Tambo Ilusión a marvelous setting for a beautiful yoga practice. The "maloca", a round structure built of natural materials from the local area, was built with the intention of being a yoga space as well as a space for holding sacred traditional ceremonies, full moon women's circles and other such events. The spacious "maloca" has a beautiful wooden floor, is screened-in, has a great view of the surrounding nature and is equipped with yoga props and accessories. It has a good "om-bience".

In August 2014, Tambo Ilusión was featured in "El Comercio", the most prestigious Peruvian newspaper who published an article about the top 5 refuges to practice yoga in Peru. We are thrilled and we have no doubt that Tambo Ilusión is a wonderful place for holding retreats.
