My 10 day retreat was a last minute decision to join my best friend Oil. It was the best decision I made as it was THE most beautiful, humbling experience I’ve ever had.Guru Uttam was so helpful from the very beginning, helping with visas, transportation, accommodation and excursions.From the moment I landed I had this overwhelming feeling of pure joy combined with excitement.
Our days consisted of intense yoga (I say intense as I don’t practice very often), yoga Nidra, meditating, chanting, pranayama, reflection & silence, sunrise on a mountain and a walk to a beautiful waterfalls.
Our hosts at the Ashram were so welcoming and friendly and made our stay so enjoyable. Being a catholic myself (who hasn’t been to church in a very long time-don’t tell my mum) it was heart warming to sit in the chapel every evening for either mass, prayers or chanting with these wonderful souls.The food was definitely a highlight during the stay. Home cooked vegetarian meals straight from the garden; it can’t get better than that.Our sweet host Guru Uttam is one of the most happy, positive people I’ve ever met. Never without a smile on his face, being in his presence was so calming for me. He was very informative and helpful and caring. A wonderful soul.I am forever grateful for this most wonderful experience and I will absolutely be returning for part 2. Namaste
