Yoga Retreats

Residential Yoga Retreats

To know and understand yourself in the world we live in is difficult, we all have so many balls in the air at once. The family and work take up so much of our energy, often we are so busy that we forget who we really are. We have to be Father, Mother, Sister, Brother, worker, cleaner, gardener, the list is endless.

A Yoga Retreat gives you time to stretch your body, expand your breath, relax, meditate, find quiet and find laughter. It is a time to take a break from being the person everyone else expects you to be including yourself.

We think we relax when we watch television or read a book but this is not really deep kind of relaxation. These things keep the mind ever active. The purpose of Retreat is to give the mind a rest, to get into the body, to be in the present moment. It is wonderful to be for a while with others of like mind.

Retreat is the way to expand your knowledge of yourself and refresh your mind and body.  Working with the process of Yoga is a wonderful way to access your potential to open your heart; increasing your life force and focusing the mind to obtain inner stillness and peace. Helping you to obtain your goals in life, being accepted and accepting others. Classical yoga is designed to enable you to transform the way you see yourself and understand our relationship to the world you live in. Retreats give us a safe space in which to work, that may not be available in the outside world.

You can come alone -it often is the best idea as you really get the space to look at who you are. A Yoga Retreat is a space for personal development on deep levels. It is a space to rejuvenate body and mind. It is time for you in a most potent way.

A Yoga Retreat is a Safe space where we respect ourselves and others, put aside our judgemental attitudes and take the time to be who we are, warts and all.
