So many wow-moments everyday.
So perfectly curated and well taught Yoga lessons.
The warmest welcome, the hardest goodbye.

Yoga, Meditation & Movement

We have daily yoga classes in our yoga terrace/shala, and once a week at our beautiful beach platform, which is roughly a 10 minute drive from the center. 

We aim to teach a holistic yoga practice where you can go home with practical tools to slow down and connect to yourself. Generally speaking, we practice a more slow-paced yoga style at our retreat. Depending on the teachers present on your retreat, we have the facilities to offer a range of yoga styles from: hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, bhakti, aerial, Iyengar, yin and restorative yoga. You will have warm, welcoming, qualified yoga instructors with whom you can chat to regarding your personal yoga practice.

We also offer other inspiring & creative workshops. An example of these include: pranayama (breath-work), ecstatic dance, mantra meditation, partner yoga sound healing gong bath, and more.
