About the Retreat

This retreat offers a rare and truly transformational opportunity. The program is carefully crafted to help you tap into a wellspring of vitality and clear restrictive thought and movement patterns. Enjoy lush accommodation set along pristine beaches, delicious vegetarian cuisine tailored to your Ayurvedic constitution and specialized therapy sessions led by highly experienced practitioners.

Daily Schedule

Start your day with yoga and meditation before workshops exploring somatic movement, dance and meditation. Dance is an expression of what you carry within and in its purest form does not require an audience, it’s just your body’s way of speaking to you through joyous and playful movement. Afternoons feature Ayurvedic treatments and consultations with doctors. See the full retreat schedule for more details on the daily program.
