Yoga Retreat Themes: The Foundation of Our Experience
This retreat is a dedication to deepen your yoga practice. We emphasize a holistic approach to expand your understanding of the full spectrum of yoga.
This retreat invites the opportunity to explore more then just the physical movements. We invite you to adventure further into the ancient practice of yoga and all that it encompasses.
The workshops will focus on “Yoga philosophy”, “Asana Alignment” and “Create Your Sadhana – How to Develop a Home Practice”, as a perfect recipe to fall even more in love with yoga.
Weekly Excursion : Elephant Safari – this week we head to Udawalawe National Park to visit the Sri Lankan wildlife. After we get into our jeep, we take a journey through the park to spot Elephants & other native animals in their natural habitat.
Sometimes we need to take a moment to stop restore and renew. This week’s offering focuses on releasing unnecessary stress that can so easily become our reality, with a holistic approach to finding wholeness in the body mind and soul. To heal is to become whole, to let go of the things that are no longer serving and invite the fulness that you are.
Enjoy teachings of embodied yogic philosophy, meditation and breath-work, and yoga practice of vitalising vinyasa each morning and restorative practices in the evenings. Through the tools of yoga allow your self to sooth through the essence of restoration.
The workshops focus on “Alignment & Myofascial Release”, “Embodied Philosophy” and “Pranayama & Meditation”

This retreat offers a transformative journey through the chakras to find union of body mind and soul. This opportunity in studying the chakras is to learn how to master each one’s essence and unite them all into a unified field of abundance. Through learning, analysing and healing the attributes of each chakra one can experience balance in all areas of life both internal and external. Knowledge of our subtle energy system empowers us to maintain balance and harmony on the physical, mental and spiritual level.
The workshops will focus on “Introduction to the Energetic Self”, “Empowered Wisdom” and “Open to Bliss: Biodynamic Healing”

The Alchemy of the elements invites on a journey through the 5 mahabhutas – the 5 elements – earth, water, fire air and Space. The building blocks of creation. Through the marriage of yoga and Ayurveda this retreat explores the foundations of the elements and how they can be cultivated to create a wholesome and balanced experience.
Each day is dedicated to one of the 5 elements practiced through yoga, specialty workshops, journaling and meditation. Through the ancient wisdom of eastern philosophy and Ayurveda we learn how to harness the foundations to find a balanced life.
