A Yoga Retreat is a place to learn to disconnect . It is a place to learn to meditate. It is a place to explore and heal. Disconnect from the mundane hustle and bustle. Meditate on what hurts us. Explore all that we have forgotten. Heal all that we have ignored.

A Yoga Retreat is usually a multi-day event : usually 2 to even 10 days. It is an event that brings together restless people. To people who are looking for something beyond physical life. People who feel that they lack tools to deal with their day to day . Individuals wanting to explore their inner world.

Yoga Retreats are usually organized by teachers trained in this discipline : people who have dedicated part of their time and a lot of effort to learn the art of each asana, how each pranayama works, how to guide a meditation and teach all this from love. and compassion.

We all know that a Yoga class can be very beneficial and that practicing daily is magical. But dedicating full days to self-study and refinement, to self-exploration and forgiveness, to self-listening and observation, transforms you to a higher level . Sharing several days with people in a similar situation, with a similar purpose and an attitude of openness and humility, is essential.
