Peace is at the core of our being. Immerse in yogic practices dedicated to inner peace, reverence for the Earth, and global harmony.
Amidst the sounds and smells of the tropical rainforest, let the medicine of Nature heal your heart, soothe your spirit, and inspire your life.
This 7-day yoga Retreat is dedicated to mantras, meditation, and Mother Earth. Mantras are the Vedic gift to humanity. Chant, sing, and meditate using mantra and experience the bliss of this divine yogic practice.
In addition to practicing asana, learning mantra, and meditating with eyes open, we will create and partake in ceremonies and rituals dedicated to the healing of Mother Earth. Invoking the sacred essence of Water, Earth, Fire, Air, and Space, we will work with the elements in our bodies, mind, and heart to create new possibilities to envision and manifest health, happiness and harmony for ourselves, for others, and for the Earth.
