RESONS TO WALK THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
The physical way is one: the one you will walk, but the personal one is unique, is that you’ll be challenged to do and will be with you for a lifetime. It’s like living a small life in a few days, with a beginning and end, with meetings, and with good days and not so good ones. It is a way to meditate in movement.
There are many ways to walk it and lots of reasons to do it. The one we propose here is not the classic journey for weeks and to sleep in shelters. What we will do yoga every morning and then walk about 5 hours every day to our next destination. You do not have to carry your backpack and we will arrive to comfortable hotels to replenish our energy. A practical way walk and do yoga: two in one.
