Good news, everything you learn in this course will add huge value to other modalities you already offer to enrich the suite of skills to boost your business and clientele.

This Yin Yoga course is open to all.


This 100hr Yin Yoga Training Foundation is specifically designed to:

At the Mala Dhara Eco Resort and Organic Farm, we like food, we like eating and we like to share. The Kin Dee Restaurant is the very heart of the Mala Dhara and reflects our attitudes and ethos. We like our food: fun, fresh, local, organic and quality in every way possible. We strive to pour our hearts out, laugh until it hurts and take the source, quality and taste of all of our ingredients seriously.

The Mala Dhara menu changes with the seasons, the harvests and the creative juices flowing through the kitchen. We don’t just accommodate vegetarian and vegan guests with options or alternatives. We prepare vegetarian meals that stand on their own jump off the plate, vie for your attention and delight your senses. There are no weak tofu dishes, bad lighting, and casual browns. The Kin dee Restaurant is not your typical vegetarian restaurant. Come and see for yourself.

Coffee-Cake At the Kin Dee you might find couples languidly lingering over each other and our vegan avocado chocolate dessert, wine in hand, the ambiance sheik and soft.

At the Kin Dee you might find friends and families laughing and joking, enjoying each others company over a pizza from our wood fired pizza oven.

At the Kin Dee you might find flamenco dancers on the veranda, stomping their hearts out after devouring our vegan lamb burgers and mojitos.

At the Kin Dee, you might find yogis on retreat, feasting on fresh veggie spring rolls bursting with edible flowers, dipped in our homegrown peanut sauce.

The Kin Dee Restaurant is open daily from 9am – 9pm. Group reservations can be accommodated for parties, weddings, flamenco dancers, yogis, families, cyclists, golfers, vegans, friends, film crews, etc….

Veranda Dining is limited to the dry season or when weather conditions permit. Please check out our menu and come and share our passion for your food.

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.
