Enchanted Mountain in Santa Catarina is a beautiful and complete retreat center with fully equipped yoga studios, comfortable and cozy living arrangements and a full kitchen staff to serve our vegetarian meals.
To get to Garopaba, it is best to fly to FLORIANOPOLIS, BRASIL (airport code – FLN).
We will help arrange ground transportation at an additional cost from the airport to the retreat center.
At Enchanted Mountain Center, you will discover the magic of this unique meeting of mountain, forest, lakes and sea while you reconnect with the inner enchantment of peace and harmony within your being. The Center is located in the heart of the temperate rainforest on a site of over 50 acres with views of lakes, mountains, white sand dunes, and the Southern Atlantic Ocean. The Center has a feeling of peace and tranquility while at the same time, you’re only 20 minutes from the beach and 30 minutes from the village of Garopaba. The center is privately located at the end of a valley and is not walking distance from the village of Garopaba. Students who wish to leave the retreat during the breaks / meal times can hire a taxi to get to town.
The Yoga spaces are open and beautiful with premiere quality recycled hardwood floors which provide the perfect atmosphere for Yoga, meditation, or other activities.
The housing units for two to four people are spacious and comfortable, each with a private bath and decorated with Brazilian handicrafts. Each unit has ocean or mountain views and is surrounded with unique trees and vegetation of the temperate rainforest. The property has a natural pool fed by a spring of crystal water.
Keeping in mind that healthy natural cuisine is a foundation of well-being, Enchanted Mountain offers an excellent variety of vegetarian dishes lovingly prepared in a home-style kitchen. Most of the vegetable and salads are organically grown in our local area and breakfast is highlighted with a buffet of fresh tropical Brazilian fruits. The dining room offers both indoor and open air dining. The food we will enjoy for this month is very different from what you will be used to eating. Be prepared for simple cuisine prepared with love and not a lot of spices or extravagant flavors. The wholesome diet is part of a cleansing that happens these weeks. We are able to accommodate Vegan and Gluten Free diets. In past years, students have chosen to visit the town during free time for ‘other food’ to supplement the vegetarian meals provided. See the F.A.Q. section for photos of the meals.
