About us

7 days of sustainable spiritual yoga retreat in Nature among likeminded people. 

OUR PRINCIPLES:

YOGA

Yogic philosophy and practice create the environment here at Shanti Dom. Practice of asanas, pranayama, meditation, nonviolence, honesty, acceptance, selfless service and many other aspects of yoga create a very healthy, bright and positive atmosphere among everyone here.

ECOLOGY

We eliminate usage of chemical elements in construction, farming and other spheres of our life. We use only natural compost in our garden so the vegetables and fruits we grow are absolutely organic and eco friendly. We do not leave any garbage behind us, everything is recycled by us or by special organizations.

ENVIRONMENT

We take care of the surrounding flora and fauna, cleaning the nearest forests and rivers, constructing bridges, building houses for the birds and ants, etc. One of our next projects is the renovation of a marshland that is attached to our farm.

VEGETARIANISM

We eat only vegetarian food (including dairy). Some vegetables and fruits are grown in our garden, the rest we get from local organic farms. We practice this diet for many reasons but especially because we don’t believe in violence. Since we don’t eat any type of meat there is always other protein (beans, nuts, diary, etc.) in our daily ration. We charge only 1 USD per meal just to cover our expenses.

VOLUNTEERING

We are always happy to welcome volunteers ready to help us to create this small and bright island of harmony and happiness. We don’t use any paid work in the project (except for a few things we can’t  physically make without professionals), so any type of help is both needed and highly appreciated. Profit made by the project goes towards its further development. Our progress is attained thanks to the enthusiasts from all over the world.

LOCAL CO-OPERATION

There are several small villages around us, and each of them has many elderly people who live alone and are happy to receive any help from us. We look after their animals, work in their gardens, and help clean their houses. They thank us with fresh cow milk, honey, and precious gratitude. Some kids projects are also taking place here.

I had the most fantastic YTT 200 experience here in Belarus. The place being so secluded, quiet and tranquil made it an incredibly raw and natural experience for me. I enjoyed being in touch with nature and with myself, without distractions of normal daily life. Belarus is a beautiful country! I felt that the training was well prepared and that I was sufficiently prepared to become a teacher by the end of it. Elena has years of experience, training and teaching and she was a wonderful mentor and guide for us. I created close bonds and very special memories in Shanti Dom. This is a place full of peace and light, and the experience has been life changing. I started teaching the moment I arrived back to my country, and my life has transformed. Thank you!!! I enjoyed every single second, and would go back and do it all again in a heartbeat. Kate (UK).

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.
