Come get your feet wet! This fun retreat includes morning and afternoon SUP yoga classes in our gorgeous natural spring. If, at times the weather is not suitable, on land yoga sessions would be held in a stunning yoga space which looks out on the surrounding natural beauty. The soundscape (the natural chorus of wind, birds, monkeys and insects) will transport you to a place of natural serenity deep within yourself during your practice; especially in Savasana, the final resting pose.

There will be a variety of styles practiced during the retreat: Hatha, gentle, flow, restorative and yoga Nidra. Two sessions will be practiced on dry land in the beautiful yoga shala. Meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques) will also be practiced daily.

Discover a new way to play in the water participating in this refreshingly and playful SUP yoga holiday. Experience the peace that comes from practicing yoga in the Amazon rainforest, SUP yoga in the calm and warm waters of a natural spring, eating wholesome and delicious meals, becoming more connected with nature, falling asleep listening to the sound of fauna, etc. You can expect all your senses to be stimulated!

Take your yoga practice to a whole new level with SUP Yoga. The 360 degree view that this practice offers in inversions is spectacular. On the water, one feels totally connected with the environment. In addition, practicing yoga on a paddle board is challenging as being on an unstable surface increases the intensity of the practice, making it a complete workout. This practice demands more concentration too. Meditating on water is an experience not to be missed either. And you will soak up all the benefits of your practice in Savasana looking at the world upside down while floating with the water caressing your dangling fingers. Bliss! This practice feeds the soul. Come experience the freedom!

Everyone can learn and practice SUP yoga. Tambo Ilusión offers the ideal environment for beginner SUP yoga practitioners as calm water makes it easier with balance. If you are an experienced yogi then you shall dive in this amazing practice that will challenge you in a fantastic way.

You will also have the opportunity to take a stroll with Johanne to accompany Ayla, her equine friend (mare / horse), to her paddock and feed her. Along the way, you will stop at a viewpoint to enjoy a healthy drink while admiring the stunning sunset and Ayla grazing peacefully. This pleasurable activity offers both the benefits of equine-imity and sunset therapies, both known to be soothing for the soul.

You will also have free time to simply lounge in a hammock reading or napping, do a bit of bird and monkey watching and/or do whatever it is your heart desires.

You will be encouraged to keep a journal for the week. Suggestions and writing exercises will be provided to get you started. During the retreat, nights usually wind down around 9:00 p.m.

    Internet access?

    At Tambo Ilusión, we live in a low electromagnetic field area and pride ourselves of offering a digital detox experience to our guests thus there is no Wi-Fi service available.

    To have some access to the internet, guests can plan ahead and make an arrangement with their cell phone supplier about an international plan before their departure for Peru or purchase a prepaid SIM card at the airport in Lima but the quality of the connection on the land is not great. Also, there is Internet service in town, a 10 minute mototaxi drive from Tambo Ilusion.

    At Tambo Ilusion, it is possible to send a quick email to your loved ones to let them know you arrived safely and to make your check-in the day before your flight.


    We are located in the Amazon rainforest at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level. At times there are few mosquitos and at other times, there can be a lot, especially at sun down. It is recommended to wear long-sleeved, light colored, loose fitting shirts and pants, a light scarf, and socks, especially at the end of the day when mosquitoes are more active. When going into the forest, it is highly recommended to wear clothing that covers most of your body, keeping as much of your skin covered as possible.

    Always carry insect repellent (biodegradable if possible).

    The incidence dengue in the Tarapoto area is extremely low. There are no required vaccinations nor the need for malaria medication for the Tarapoto area.  There is no malaria or yellow fever in this area.
