OUR STORY

“I am losing my way and finding my soul”

HOW IT ALL STARTED?

every good thing starts with a sprained ankle, right?

After spraining my ankle in the middle of the Ecuadorian amazon, I realized that several physical rehab exercises were actually Yoga postures and there was no turning back: I experienced genuine physical, emotional, spiritual and mental wellness. I started making positive decisions for my life, incorporated healthy habits into my routine and discovered that my ability to self-regulate was just one breath away.

While I was cultivating my own practice I spent a few years cooking vegan pastry with Ásanna –my personal brand–, and when I needed a change, tourism arrived to stay. I worked as a Leader Tour around South America, scorting people from Quito to Buenos Aires, from Lima to Rio de Janeiro, and even though there wasn’t that much physical stillness, Yoga helped me taste the quietness of the mind. It also took me to Costa Rica, where I got certified as an instructor with a trauma sensitive approach methodology.

“I REALIZED THAT TOURISM, YOGA, MEDITATION AND HEALTHY FOOD WERE NOT SO FAR FROM EACH OTHER”

DID WE REALLY HAD PASSENGERS BEFORE WE WERE AN AGENCY?

On 2017, a vegan couple from Germany contacted me through my personal blog: they had the dream of visiting Peru and were looking for recommendations. I was beyond excited and my long answer was a proof of that. Their response opened the most beautiful door of my life: if this is your job, why don't you organize the trip and come with us? We’ll go for 5 weeks. In that moment I realized that tourism, Yoga, meditation and healthy food were not so far from each other. In that moment Transversal Travel was born.

Over the years we've gone deeper in what we are most passionate about: being by your side while travelling inside and out. Today we are the result of believing that other kind of tourism is possible. One that combines personal well-being and Union with nature. A tourism that, through Yoga retreats, group tours and tailor-made travels, allows us to reset and uplift mind, body and spirit.

See you on the route!

With love and in service,

Jana

ONE JOURNEY, MANY FACES

JANA RODRIGUEZ

FOUNDER OF TRANSVERSAL TRAVEL, YOGA TEACHER & TOUR LEADER

I’m a woman fascinated by the ancestral teachings and in the constant quest to share wellness experiences through the world. I was born in Peru, I graduated with Honors as a Social Communications Bachelor and founded Transversal Travel, where I work as a tour leader and Yoga instructor.

For many years I shared with rural communities in the peruvian desert coast, highlands and rainforest, organizing and registering trips with volunteers. I also dedicated my time and work to marketing, photography, healthy cuisine and mainstream tourism.

In 2018 I got certified as a Yoga teacher in Costa Rica under the Akhanda Shakti method, a trauma-sensitive approach. In 2019 I got trained in First Aids and in 2020 I’ll deepen in the teachings of Yoga at the foothills of the Himalayas in India.

I am an enthusiast of Ayurveda, Kirtan, numerology, the nervous system, conscious communication and eating, social art, conservation and initiatives to address climate change. I am convinced that a single person cannot do everything, but can do something and that will be good for the world if it comes from a place of love.
