Who Is A Yoga & Meditation Retreat For?

Every Mind, Every Body & Every Soul!

The most common issue our guests face is that they struggle to ‘make time for me’ and to accept themselves as they are.

Many guests know they are in need of ‘something’ and often don’t know how or where to start to make a commitment to a daily practice and positive, lasting change.

Some are just in need of rest, recuperation and a supportive environment to further their practice.

Others are tired of the gym-yoga scene and are yearning for authentic, traditional yogic teachings.

That’s where we come in!

Our retreats are a gateway into the powerful ancient practices of Himalayan Meditation and Hatha Yoga and more.

What do I do after a retreat?

On our retreats we welcome you into our Ashram community which is here to serve you well beyond the retreat in your daily life.

After attending one of our life-changing experiences, such as the Soul Retreat or Soul Immersion, you will qualify for our exclusive Ashram Membership.

Membership will give you access to the Ashram for personal meditation and yoga retreat on a donation basis. 

You will also receive access to free retreats when you come back as a volunteer, supporting us in running our programs.

Now is the moment to take charge of your wellbeing; unplug, practice, destress and reconnect to your Soul!

General

Are your retreats and yoga and meditation religious?

No. The practices shared are at our Retreats are simple practical tools that can be used in a variety of ways (to enhance well-being, to investigate one’s experience etc.) For some, they are deeply spiritual. They are centred on a universal, inward connection to ‘life.’ We call that the Soul. 

The practices of yoga and meditation that we share have their origin in India (in the Himalaya and Nepal) and we celebrate and share the cultural origins of these practices (such as Sanskrit mantra and nature based fire ceremonies.)

 

We present all knowledge for your consideration and participation in activities is not mandatory. We endeavour to demystify the yoga practice and help you understand the relevance of meditation, yoga and fire ceremony in modern life.

Can I consume illicit substances whilst on retreat?

– No. This event is STRICTLY DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE.

– Cancellations within 45 days will forfeit all fees paid
