Program

To join this retreat, you do not have to be a skilful yoga practitioner. All levels are welcome, from beginners to advance. This retreat is a nurturing mixture of Vinyasa flow yoga, Pilates, Restorative yoga, and Bollywood dance. Calm your mind down on a meditation stroll through peaceful pathways and a pure mountain-fed lake. When the night falls, get together with new friends around the fire pit or let your stresses melt away in the Jacuzzi. 

Begin your day practising a one-and-a-half-hour flow yoga class in the spectacular yoga studio that opens onto large oak trees and gardens. In the late afternoon, enjoy an uplifting Pilates mat class that will tone your abdomen and bring balance to your spine. After this fun workout, rejuvenate your mind and body with deep Restorative yoga postures that will leave you feeling grounded. 

As you embark on your inward journey of renewal, you will feel a deeper sense of connectedness to yourself and the beautiful nature that surrounds the beautiful sanctuary. Outdoor areas also provide ideal places for lounging, reading, journaling, or rejuvenating with a refreshing afternoon nap.
