A retreat is like a strategic withdrawal from your regular life to focus on something that inspires you

Hi friends!
Maybe you’ve pondered taking a break from your busy everyday life? To have time for yourself? Really connection with yourself? Retreat could be the answer! There are so many reasons to take a retreat, and here are just a few…

INSPIRE yourself
Create TIME and SPACE in your life
WITHDRAW from daly life
PAUSE and truly LISTEN
CONFRONT your fears, and OVERCOME them
Make HEALTHY choices
Get in touch WHO you really are
CONNECT with like-minded people
Reconnect with NATURE
HEKP others to make a positive change
CREATE memories of a lifetime

A retreat is like a strategic withdrawal from your regular life to focus on something that inspires you. The word retreat actually stems from the Latin verb retraho, which means to withdraw or pull back. Remembering that we are all human is an important part of allowing yourself to let go and create a whole new perspective on life, re-energize and motivate yourself into action. Your retreat environment should be harmonious with surroundings intent on diving in to connect and support physical, mental and spiritual growth. Most importantly, your retreat should foster an atmosphere of silence for listening where you can find peace and simplicity, encouraging mental integration.

Having the space to spend time in silent reflection to contemplate on what moves the soul are the true foundations of a retreat. For true and ongoing spiritual growth, it’s important to make a few lasting resolutions to improve your daily life at home. Be sure to write those down to remind yourself if you make a wrong turn. Most importantly, shake it off and begin again. Action with integrity will move you in the right direction. Every once in a while turn off your cell phone and unplug yourself from all technology. No one needs your attention more than yourself, everyone else can wait.

Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style

The Ashtanga Yoga Mysore is a traditional way for learning and deepening your Ashtanga practice. It is based on the weaving of body and breath movements into a deepening flow of yoga poses, a spiritual practice and an inner journey to the self. A private class in a group setting, the teacher doesn’t lead the whole group but holds the space for the practitioners, beginners and advanced together, to learn and refine each student’s personal practice. Ashtanga yoga will stretch every corner of your body and mind, inviting you to strengthen areas of challenge and inspire you to live with grace. Akin to a cooking process, the heat generated, the struggle endured and the peace cultivated bring together and reveal the flavour of your being.

The ancient tradition of Kirtan raises consciousness through group chanting. Kirtan is a form of devotional chanting whose roots go back to India over 500 years. It is a form of Bhakti Yoga (yoga of devotion) and has the power to open the heart. The singing is accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming while the audience is encouraged to participate by chanting, clapping and dancing. Explore kirtan and bhajans, connecting with the qualities of Indian deities. Kirtan uses the human voice and repetition to calm the mind and lift the spirit.
