We will start our journey visiting a secret spot inside the biggest urban florest in the world (Tijuca Forest) where there is a beautifull whaterfall where we can get fresh. This place is only 25 minutes far from our meeting point. After that, 10 minutes by car latter we will be at the point to start our trail to the top of one of the most beautifull mountains in Rio de Janeiro, called "The Beautifull Rock" (in Portuguese, Pedra Bonita, the name speaks for itself). Up there we will stretch and relax our bodies a little bit with an delicious yoga practice in the sacred silence of the top of the mountain (yes! in the middle of this big metropolis we have this unbelievable bless) followed by meditation to silence the mind and to help us to contemplate the breath taking beauty of this place. In the end we will do some picnic and play some guitar before we take the trail back.
I was a lawyer but changed my life to become an yoga teacher and live with more balance and contact with nature and healthier lifestyle to mind and body. I already lived in Australia and France and love to do trails, go surfing and meditate in places of powerfull energy and beautifull views. My passion is to inspire and encourge people to be more and more who they really are and connect with their essence.
picnic Healthy snacks for us to share. Fell free to bring some of your preference.
carro (round trip) Transport from the Saens Pena subway to the waterfall and Pedra Bonita and then return to the meeting…
We will visit a little known waterfall in the heart of the Tijuca Forest. As it has no plates, only locals know how to get there, what makes the place more empty and special. Shortly afterwards, we will be making a pleasant trail through the woods, which starts at the hang gliding ramp, where we can see people flying before we walk about 30 minutes until we have the beautiful view of the entire edge of the city from the top of Pedra Bonita.
Don't worry if you have never practiced yoga or if you are not used to doing trails. The intensity of the activities is light. Our goal is to have fun and enjoy a pleasant day in this amazing city.
