About Us


Atmavicara comes from the Sanskrit language and means discovering one's true nature. AtmaVicara is the main practice of knowledge (Jnana Yoga), which itself is traditionally regarded as the highest of the yoga’s because it takes us most directly to liberation.


Atmavicara is designed for holistic and transformational experiences. It is the creation of a few friends who experienced profound changes in our lives & health after traveling the world, practicing meditation and yoga.

Being inspired to share this with others we make Alternative Yoga Travels and different courses in a variety of languages. All we offer is based on our personal experiences and our values; honesty, kindness, genuineness and quality.

Our yoga courses are mainly focused on alignment and therapeutic approaches. We do believe yoga can heal as we have all experienced it personally.

We also believe these courses and journeys are tools towards healing the mind & body and living a happier and free life. It is said that “In making a path like the Buddha, we discover our own capacities”.


We offer alternative traveling while exploring this beautiful planet and practicing yoga, meditation and different spiritual and healing practices.
