What to Expect

A typical Day at the retreat includes a combination of connection with our earth and nature, restorative work in the form of yoga, education on self exploration and growth, therapeutic massage, community eating and plenty of time for self reflection and rest.


Every component of the retreat is optional offering individuals the flexibility to choose the best course for their journey and customize the amount of rest and self reflection time they require.


Daily offerings include – Morning nature walk, Vinyasa yoga flow, beginner yoga, three ayurvedic based meals, snacks, self exploration and growth workshop, nutrition classes, restorative yoga, sound baths and body treatments.  Additional evening community activities are offered for those who choose to participate.

Each day will offer structured and unstructured time to allow attendees to choose which activities to participate in and customise the retreat to their unique interests and bespoke needs.  Each day will offer new options and include three meals, snacks, yoga classes at all levels, self awareness/resiliency Workshops, Ayurvedic nutrition workshops, therapy treatments and plenty of time to hike, connect with the environment and rest.


Ayurvedic meals (defined by food prepared with ingredients to support imbalances in the individual doshas) are served during the retreat which helps in detoxifying and balancing the body for practices and can be customized to each person’s specific doshic needs (see more on doshas here). Besides nutritional value, we love to give a glimpse of the local food taste of the region we are residing in.


While the meals will not be strictly vegan or even vegetarian, they will be prepared to support the retreat practices and are considered “Clean Eating”. The food is seasoned with mild spices, which are an important part of the Ayurvedic diet.


Any  preference for Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-free diets can comfortably be managed.

Self Care Rituals

An important part of the retreat will self-care rituals.  Aligned with Ayurvedic principals and practices, a set of daily rituals will be introduced and attendees are encouraged to try.  In addition, each attendee will have one complimentary massage or facial included in the retreat and can opt into additional treatments if they choose.

Attendees will gain the knowledge of self-care rituals and practices to easily incorporate them into their daily life back home.
