What to Expect

The Yoga Retreat program includes:
    yoga postures
    breathing techniques
    yoga nidra – relaxation, meditation
    focused action in the lifestyle, and twice daily group discussions on subjects of awareness from the text 
    eBook Yoga With Attitude
    one is encouraged to make notes or keep a spiritual diary throughout the retreat  

You are encouraged to observe the following subjects as part of a daily awareness/mindful practice:

    observation of physical actions
    observation of sense experiences
    awareness of thoughts
    awareness of emotions
    actions & reactions



Participation in Karma Yoga is awareness in action and is part of the ashram lifestyle rhythm.

The morning program of karma yoga – awareness is where you may be assisting in the organic veggie garden, kitchen, grounds, maintenance or in one of the other interesting and creative projects in the ashram.

The task is only the medium but the practice is to watch the stream of passing mental traffic as an impartial witness whilst fully applying and engaging oneself to the action in the here and now.

By paying attention with a positive attitude to our work, we can lift any task from the menial to the meaningful.

This mental attitude/spiritual ideal can be carried with you, away from the Ashram into your daily life and work for living an ongoing life inspired by a yogic culture.

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 

Feel Great Break - personal experience

Yoga Feel Great Break Retreat Comments

I was expecting the course to be more physical but found the focus on mind was actually really (if not more) useful
It is a great place to take some time out and reconnect with yourself
I feel a lot clearer in my direction. It gave me the time & space I needed for me
What was I looking for: "a combination of yoga, meditation, interaction & personal time/space
A fantastic way to have respite from a busy life, learn and experience to live life more consciously/meaningfully​ 
Gives a different perspective and time/space to learn
