About This Event

Look deep into nature & then you will understand everything better. During this week of yoga & conscious cooking we will dive into our own inner nature & look at what nature provides around us. We will be learning how to cook sustainably with healthy plantbased, organic & local produce, mindfully eating & transforming foods through fermentation. Not forgetting the most important components: deliciousness, sharing & joy.

There will be twice daily yoga classes giving us a chance to explore our inner landscapes & body movements. Becoming aware of our mind & own organic structure in which we reside. On Wednesday evening there will be no yoga as we will visit a local, organic market with beautiful fresh produce.

It will be an inspiring week of connecting, learning new delicious plant based recipes to take home, exploration & mindfulness.

All the rooms have big door windows so that nature can be enjoyed to its fullest. The house is refurbished with a barefoot luxury & in line with Yogaion's sustainable ethics, the house get's all its warm water by solar power and heating comes from an amazing masonry stove heating up the whole place if needed.

There is a swimming pool overlooking a beautiful valley of trees & bushes and in the valley there is an organic garden. All the rooms have a mezzanine with an extra bed and two beds in the bottom, they also have their own private, ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet.

All the food during the Yoga retreats is local & organic coming either straight from the organic farms down the road or from the farmers market. This means that most of the waste is biodegradable and for any other waste there will be a full on recycling program.

Why Retreat?

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

Reconnecting with basic goodness in an environment of people who share a vision for a better society. Wimberly

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.
