When you are inspired…dormant forces, faculties, and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. — Patanjali

Ideal for…

The Hatha yoga classes, deep relaxation sessions and meditation instruction are experiential and uncomplicated.

These methods are ideal for beginners as well as those who wish to ‘deepen’ their already established yoga practice.

People of all ages, body types, walks of life, professions and dispositions are welcome.

If you seek to maintain good health; incorporate relaxation for wellbeing; or restore equilibrium, then these weekends away are ideal for you!

It is a weekend retreat vacation and not an ashram.  The cuisine will be vegetarian and non-vegetarian and wine will be served.  (And yes, there will be chocolate!).

The Powerful Owl lives in tree hollows and is listed as an endangered species.
