About This Event

Relax, restore, and rejuvenate on the breathtaking islands of French Polynesia. This 6-day,  5-night retreat will focus on Ayurveda and Yoga. Ayurveda is an ancient, holistic, whole body science from India, focusing on self healing.  Each morning rise with the sun and enjoy an invigorating Ayurvedic based yoga practice combining vinyasa flow, hatha, and ashtanga. Spend your day soaking up the sun, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, exploring the island by bike, or relaxing.   Group afternoon activities will include 2 Ayurveda workshops,  a tour of the island, an outing to see traditional Tahitian dance, snorkeling and of course some free time! In the evening, wind down with a gentle restorative practice, combining yoga nidra, guided meditation, yin and restorative yoga.  Ideas and concepts of Ayurveda will be explained throughout the week in an easy to use way.  Yoga teachers will receive 30 hours of Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance in the area of Ayurveda.  At the end of the week, you will walk away feeling more rejuvenated in the mind, body and spirit and the knowledge to maintain this in your daily life.

“Lauren is an amazing teacher! She is so knowledgeable about yoga and Ayurveda, and she shares this knowledge in such an understandable, relatable and generous way. Her warm personality and authenticity shows through in all her teachings. I challenge you to leave one of her classes without a huge smile on your face, it’s just not possible! Love X” — HANNAH D. “Lauren is the most amazing yoga teacher. The teacher I aspire to be. Visiting Tahiti and Lauren’s classes is on my bucket list. Novice or experienced at yoga Lauren will make you feel at ease. She has an amazing ability to know exactly what you need from your yoga class. I can not recommend her highly enough. Go to one of her classes and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed.” — ESTHER C.

The tropical garden, between sea and mountain, planted with many exotic species.

The decoration of Polynesian inspiration, neat and refined.

The Tikis (sculptures of Polynesian gods and goddesses): they watch night and day on the property and its occupants.

The many shops, snacks and restaurants of Maharepa, in the immediate vicinity.

The diving packages offered in partnership with Moorea Blue Diving, located just a few hundred meters away.

The “beach bikes” and the sea kayaks provided graciously.

The breakfast baskets, based on fresh and local products, proposed by the owners.

Advice and assistance from the owners to organize and book your activities (lagoon tours in Polynesian canoes, discovery of the inner valleys of the island by 4×4 or on horseback, scuba diving with sharks, educational approach of whales and dolphins …) from trusted providers.

Why Retreat?

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

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
