WHAT MAKES THIS RETREAT DIFFERENT?

diffrence

KARMA YOGA – One remarkable aspect of our 10 day retreat is the inclusion of Karma Yoga or self-less work. This is where a positive relationship between a volunteer and the task can catalyze tremendous positive change, in both the giver and the receiver. Karma Yoga is however, never performed for ones own personal benefit.

During our Essence of Yoga retreat program guests will have numerous occasions to share their time and invaluable assistance by fulfilling certain volunteer tasks. This will facilitate a space where the locals, children and the guests can all grow together during moments of sacred connection despite cultural, lingual and economic barriers.
