Although yoga can, and should ideally be practised on a regular basis, a great way to accelerate your learning and achieve rapid transformation in your practices is to attend a yoga retreat. Our yoga retreats can be enjoyed by anyone, and no previous experience of yoga is required.
When you remove yourself from the stresses and strains of daily life and immerse yourself in an environment of complete tranquillity, your state of mind is also bound to change.
Practising yoga in a serene, natural environment has a profoundly calming effect. Just the setting itself provides a stimulus to move within and find inner peace and clarity. The practice of meditation and yoga in a tranquil environment allows for reflection on the breadth and depth of the experience we call life.
The deep peace and relaxation achieved by the end of a yogic retreat, will allow you to bring newly found strength and enthusiasm to your life back home, on and off the mat.
Our yoga retreats always host a limited number of participants. This allows us to devote personal time and attention to each participant. Our main focus on the retreat is the all-round development of the person, enhanced by the practice of yoga and meditation. The disciplines we teach are designed to work synergistically in order to evolve the practitioner’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual faculties and well-being. You will come away with greater clarity on your life’s purpose and the direction you want to take.
The first step is to relieve any residue of stress clogging the physical and psychic system, to achieve deep relaxation and reconnect with the intuition of the inner self. Our yoga and personal development retreats include twice a day yoga practice, silent meditation and a variety of workshops/lectures. Of course on top of this there will still be plenty of free time to rest, socialise with new and old friends and enjoy delicious vegetarian meals.
