Iztaccihuatl Hike + Yoga
Iztaccíhuatl Hike (3,960 masl): (Hiking + Yoga) (in náhuatl: Iztac, «blanco» (white); cihuatl, «mujer» (woman) “White Woman”). It has this nickname due to its shape of a sleeping woman and for an old Nahuatl myth. It is the 3rd highest peak in Mexico with an altitude of 5,215 m.a.s.l.
We´ll depart from Mexico City to Paso de Cortés (It´s called "Paso de Cortés" due to the historical conqueer Hernan Cortés who walked his troupes to take Tenochtitlan, which is now Mexico City). There we will have our yoga & breath work prior the hike, then we will start the hike towards the location for our main yoga class. Near to the yoga class a vehicle will be waiting for us to drive back to Mexico City. This experience is quite a nice relaxing adventure that will take you to a sensorial sublime experience.

Trekking / Hiking
Trekking and Hiking are oftentimes used as synonyms, but that’s incorrect! There are big differences between them.
Hiking involves a long energetic walk in a natural environment on established hiking trails or footpaths for a day or overnight. It’s done for pleasure, to reconnect with nature and calm the mind. Highly recommended to lower stress and to breathe fresh air. You should be able to walk for at least 3 hours.
Trekking involves a long vigorous hike in a wild natural environment for multiple days. It can be done off hiking trails and frequent navigation skills are required. It’s more challenging than hiking due to multiple days of hiking; it can be anywhere from 40km up to 24,00km and up. You must have good physical and mental condition to walk at least for 9 hours and multiple days in a row.
