“There is nothing prettier than a girl in love with every breath she takes.” – Atticus
During the Salty Souls Experience, we will step on the mat every day! Our intention is to accompany you into exploring beyond the practice of the poses. We will explore with you different styles , and will be introducing meditation, conscious breath-work, and mantra singing. A nice flow, inspired by many months spent in Bali!
We aim to help you develop strength and become more graceful, but also become more aware and in tune with your body. Yoga is for us a way to create mental space, so we can generate a whole new flow of awesome ideas.
This practice promises to be highly invigorating, no matter what your level is
“You think adventure is dangerous…try routine, it’s lethal.”
Ecuador is a pretty epic country to explore. Here are the highlights of the bucket list we’ve lined up for this trip:
✓ Trek into the jungle
✓ Wrestle in a mud pool
✓ Navigate the equatorial coast in a fisherman boat
✓ Snorkel the colourful water around Salango Island
✓ Experience a shamanic Temazcal ceremony
✓ Start a dance battle in “la calle de los cócteles” on our night out in Montañita
“We are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with.”
This experience is most probably the best occasion you’ll ever have to finally surround yourself with 14 active and inspiring chicks who have dreams as big as yours! The Salty Souls is your tribe, it’s a community of girls that want to do things differently. We can only imagine what projects, trips, ideas or sister-like friendships will arise from getting all the coolest women together for 9 days.
Above all, this experience will allow you to connect with yourself. To give your body & mind the space to remember what truly makes you vibe.
“Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn
To live this experience to the fullest, you’ll obviously need some very good fuel, and that’s why we thought of including a delicious & healthy menu. The Salty Souls’ approach is all about eating clean, without compromising the pleasure. We believe in finding the right balance.
Our cook chooses fresh and local ingredients to create finger-licking meals full of superfoods, which will make you feel physically awesome! The menu is vegetarian (with fish) and dairy products are optional.
You’ll undoubtedly be heading back home with a bunch of new recipe ideas.
The Beach House
Every morning you will wake up to the sound of crashing waves in a homely beach house facing the ocean, only a few footsteps away from the sea! Yep, the Salty Casa, located in Playa Ayampe, can accommodate 10 people in double or quadruple rooms with private bathrooms. There is a large swimming pool, a sundeck, a wood-fired pizza oven, a pool table, a slackline, a nice chilling area with hammocks hung in between palm trees and enough space in the backyard for yoga & big communal meals!
