Come home to Paradise

A couple of hundred kilometres north of Brasilia, in the state of Goiás, there is a divine little hide-away known as 'Alto Paraíso' (High Paradise).

Here you’ll find our new home, hidden amidst a lush, mountain tropical forest, rich with some of the most diverse flora and fauna on the planet.  A space where we meet as individuals, share as friends and connect as family.

Experiences at Ashiyana Brazil

Find Your Own Journey

Yoga Holiday

Beautiful ‘low-key-lux’ accommodation inspired by the architecture of Bahia; delicious, vegetarian food with a Brazilian twist; and surroundings that are both stunning and inspiring.

Our centre is a true ‘hideaway’ - 1.5km outside of the town of Alto Paraíso, and nestled on the hillside of our own private, little valley, Ashiyana Brazil is a sanctuary of silence and stillness.

Yoga Retreats

We’ve curated a broad selection of retreats that we think you’ll love, some created in-house and others by retreat leader friends.

All of our retreats include our chic, Bahia-style accommodation, sumptuous buffet meals, and a location that epitomises what a 'retreat' is really all about.

Yoga Teacher Trainings

The Ashiyana 200hr Yoga Teacher Training has become recognised globally as a unique and powerful journey of self-exploration, in the safe, nurturing embrace of like-minded souls.

Some go on to teach, others deepen their Yoga practice, and others simply give themselves the gift of a month exploring their body, mind and spirit.

Wellness and Wellbeing

Our Wellness and Wellbeing offer is the very essence of the ‘Ashiyana Experience’...

Each class, treatment and wellbeing service that we offer is rooted in our desire to support and empower you to become the best version of yourself.

Relax your mind, nurture your body, and allow your spirit to fly.
