We came together through a mutual friend and before we knew it, we were planning this retreat as it is something that we had both wanted to do, to make the most of this beautiful place we call home, knowing that it holds healing energy, together with our knowledge and experience of Ayurveda and Yoga.

While many of you will know what to expect from Yoga Asana practice, you may be new to Ayurveda.

“The science of Yoga, which has become very popular all over the world in recent decades, is intimately connected to Ayurveda as its corresponding system of natural medicine. As Yoga and Ayurveda become better known, more interest is developing in their specific healing modalities as well. A new Yoga and Ayurveda therapy is arising, integrating their renewed mutual application using yogic tools like asana according to Ayurvedic guidelines as well as applying Ayurvedic therapies to aid in yogic healing.” – David Frawley

This retreat has been curated to allow the space for you to nurture and nourish your mind, body and spirit with wisdom rooted in Ayurveda and Yoga. Not only will we be of service to you throughout the day taking you through different aspects of attending to your health thus immunity and vitality, but we also hope to inspire you to carry the knowledge and practices away with you and guide you through in implementing them at home! 

Program for the day:

  • Welcome to your retreat, setting intentions, getting to know other like-minded people
