At the end of the year taking a retreat supports personal time and space to re-evaluate if we are focusing on what is important to us in life. 

Begin with acknowledging what has been achieved and if need be revisit and reset intentions to creatively balance spiritual and worldly health and wellbeing effectively. 

By cultivating a steady, regular home practice of yoga, one can attain holistic wellbeing. 

  • the imbalances of the body are reduced and physical health is experienced:
  • the tensions of the mind are reduced and mental peace and clarity is attained:
  • the agitation of the emotions is eased and the emotions are balanced effectively:
  • the dissipation of the pranas – energy are checked and focused.  

When the body, mind and emotions are balanced and harmonized one attains and experiences optimum health. 

Make notes or keep a simple diary and at the end of your retreat take some time to re assess in the following way: 

  • What insights have been gained throughout the retreat to support health & wellbeing effectively
  • How do you intend to apply and consolidate in a practical ongoing way the benefits and insights gained during your retreat 
  • What challenges were met and how did you respond to them - responses and reactions

Celebration of Peace & Understanding

New Year Program

Start the new year with a commitment and offering of peace and respectful understanding towards each other with chanting and reflecting upon the sacred sounds of peace mantras and the divine names of consciousness from 8pm to midnight.   The ancient practice of havan for purification and transformation commences at 12 midnight. 

During the retreat create self-spaciousness to reflect on the year that has passed, respecting what you have learned and what you have practised in 2019, but not discounting the so-called setbacks as these are the very fabric of life and potential for positive change.


The most precious gift we can give to ourselves and others is peace and deep respect. Set a conscious resolve for peace, to overcome the obstacles that may stand in the way of fulfilling ones resolve. 

A sankalpa is like a constant light on the other shore beckoning you to move in that direction aligning both your inner and outer aspirations.

Committing to Yoga Practice
Renewal Message - be inspired 

If you do not find peace within, you will not find it anywhere else. The Goal of Life is the attainment of Peace and not the achievement of power, name, fame and wealth. Sw. Sivananda

Join us and others for this auspicious celebration to commence the new year with the lighting of a peace sankalpa candle.  Many candles of sincere intent illuminate the path of peace,  meaningfulness and actions valuable for yourself and others.
