A specific theme of this weekend retreat is spiritual transformation in the 21st century. This retreat will focus on evolution on the spiritual path and how practitioners can embrace life in the modern world from a spiritual perspective. This will create a new vision and a new potential to experience the joy of life through the eyes of a yoga practitioner.
An additional theme of this weekend is to facilitate the connection between individuals from all backgrounds who share the common goal of inner peace and a spiritual lifestyle. For this reason a focus will be on the bonding and sharing of experiences.
Connect with other like-minded individuals and engage with a community that has a fresh, exciting perspective of the emerging of a new consciousness.
The type of yoga we practice focuses on the activation of the 7 chakras and is both gentle and revitalising. This retreat is suitable for all levels and no previous experience in yoga is necessary.
