Program

This 8-day program is designed to give you the opportunity to explore a space of silence and serenity. The first couple of days start with a yoga and mindfulness practice in the morning, including meditation, breathing exercises, and asanas. Enjoy plenty of free time to hike, swim, and explore the island before settling into an evening Yoga Nidra practice. The following 3.5 days are spent in silence, including a morning yoga and meditation practice in silence, along with the remainder of the day in silence. Silence will be lifted after brunch followed by a satsang led by a great master and time to go into introspection. Over the final couple days of the retreat, afternoons will once again include yoga and pranayama. A sound journey with Tibetan bowls and a walking meditation will also take place in the evening.
