About us

Description

This weekend is an ideal introduction to Sivananda Yoga, and offers students a foundation to the philosophy and daily practices of classical yoga. During a weekend full of guided learning and practice, you will get a glimpse of the full yogic experience as you are progressively introduced to the practice of yoga asanas (postures), breathing exercises (pranayama), relaxation techniques, yogic diet, daily meditation, mantra chanting and yoga philosophy. You will be introduced to the 5 points of Yoga, a system to balance the body and mind into a state of maximum health. This weekend offers an immersive experience in the daily routine of yoga in the peaceful and beautiful natural environment of the Ashram, with daily classes, meditation sessions and wholesome, organic vegetarian meals. You will leave rested and refreshed with the basic knowledge of how to continue your practice at home.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
