World-class yoga in Mindo’s cloudforest
Yoga in Mindo, Ecuador
We are a small and attentive Ashtanga Yoga Shala, just outside of charming mountain town of Mindo, Ecuador, the adventure gateway to the lush cloudforest on the western Andean Slope just 2 hours west from Quito.
Our property is located at the end of the road and included in the recently designated Unesco Protected Biosphere, 1100 sq miles (1700 sq kil) of pristine unroaded Forest. There just aren’t many places like this left in the world, and a truly special place to practice yoga!
We teach traditional Ashtanga yoga, beginner to advanced, all are welcome. Enjoy our unique morning yoga/hiking packages, starting the day with one-on-one private yoga instruction.
We work with each student individually, giving tips and correction as needed. You are going to learn some really cool stuff.

“There is truly a stripping of all of the thing that we tend to accumulate here and I couldn’t love it more.”Rachelle Robinett
DETOX & YOGA IN MINDO
After yoga, enjoy a tropical fruit smoothie and a hike through the forest.
When yoga practice is finished, we nourish with a delicious and satisfying organic, fresh picked tropical fruit smoothie. Eat bright!
Afterwards we take an inspiring hike on our spectacular hand built private trails in untouched cloud forest. You will pass natural springs, tropical birds, HUGE trees, beautiful waterfalls and great views from the top of mountain. It’s a challenging hike good for all levels. Please wear appropriate shoes and clothes, long pants, socks and sleeves.
“Wendy Green is a fabulous yoga instructor. A real master. There are a few times in my life when I have stumbled upon real masters of their craft, and Wendy is definitely one of them! The jungle forest garden and outside yoga studio that she has designed and built is beautiful and comfortable, very inviting and functional. Her knowledge of the body, long time yoga instruction experience, great sense of humor and awe for the natural world make her the perfect private retreat host. I feel stronger, braver and smarter after sharing many a yoga class with Wendy. Highly recommended!“
Plant Medicine Ceremony
If you are interested in participating in a local plant medicine ceremony, please include this in your inquiry. I work with a nearby, exclusive retreat center that offers limited spaces to my guests; combine your yoga morning program with a special night of ceremony and introspection.
They offer San Pedro, ayahuasca, kambo and temazcal ceremonies, all of which provide detoxifying effects at the physical, mental and emotional levels.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Everyone can learn a ton from Wendy, whether a beginner or an experienced practitioner. I recommend a stay at her place, but if it isn’t possible, joining the morning yoga classes is a must for any seasoned yoga practitioner traveling through Mindo. I hope to return to Mindo to practice with Wendy sometime soon!“
