Yoga Alchemy Release & Let Go Retreat, South Goa 7th – 13th January

India is no foreign land, it’s the Mother Land. Every year she calls us, and we always answer. Except this time around, you’re invited. We’re taking along a few friends to re-create the Akasha experience. Join us on a transformational retreat in the beautiful region of South Goa.

Release the constraints held tightly in your being, and restart your system on this 6-night retreat that will leave you ready and open for the magic that 2018 has to offer. High expectations and daily stresses create negative emotions in our physical body which can then create an ongoing cycle of frustration and bad habits. Quite often, instead of taking more energy in, we first need to clear and release that which we are holding on to.

This rejuvenating retreat will give you the chance to gently detox the subtle body, then set a solid, unshakeable foundation for the year ahead. Our beautiful location for this retreat is an oasis of tropical tranquility located in South Goa, in a remote fishing village situated in the lush, verdant foothills of the Western Ghats and minutes away from Goa’s most scenic and pristine beaches, Galgibag, Talpona & Patnem all within easy reach. This is a home away from home, Goa style.

7 Day Vino and Vinyasa Italian Yoga Tour Holiday, 24th – 30th June 2018

Join Silvia Mordini for her 7 Day Vino and Vinyasa Italian Yoga Tour Holiday. Silvia is a yoga teacher, healer, author and international guide who is passionate about Tuscany and has lived in Italy on and off her entire life, and is experienced in the culture! You will be guests at Antico Borgo di Tignano recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site focusing on Tuscan traditions. Stay in your own 10th century restored villa all with private baths. Peacefully nestled into the hills with epic views of Casole d’Elsa and Volterra in the distance, this is the perfect entryway into the Tuscan countryside.

Some say you can fall in love with a place just as you can with a person. This is certainly true of Toscana! The tastes, sights and people of Tuscany will nourish your spirit and renew your sense of joy. Experiencing life under the Tuscan sun is something that stays with you forever. In Italy, you slow down to enjoy each breath, each sip of chianti, each taste of antipasto. You may in fact realize that you are actually home: the home of your heart. And life will never be the same after that.

Tuscany teaches us to savor each moment and live inspired by the details that might have otherwise passed us by. Silvia’s years of guiding in Italy ensures that you will experience the joy of La Dolce Vita (The Sweet Life).

You will travel to many famous Art Cities, including: Florence, Monteriggioni, Siena, Radda in Chianti, San Gimignano, Castellina in Chianti, Tignano, Volterra, Petriolo Natural Hot Springs & Spa, The Mediterranean, Casole d’Elsa, and Colle Val d’Elsa. Lingering with iconic art, architecture, and design punctuated with wine, food, fashion, and fun, you will experience the real sensuousness of Tuscany and understand why it is on everyone’s bucket list! Many people decide to spend some time after our trip, to build on the foundation, and we highly recommend it!

This week is all about recharging. We will move at a relaxed pace; participation in any event is not mandatory and there will be plenty of time offered to explore on your own. You will certainly have time to re-learn the art of relaxation or as the Italians say “Il Bel Fai Niente,” set mindful goals, and renew your entire sense of wellbeing.

Nurture your Inner Self Retreat in magical Kodaikanal, India 28th February – 8th March 2018

Drawing from both the traditions of yoga and meditation, we introduce you to techniques you can use in everyday life to overcome the obstacles and stresses we face. The yoga classes we facilitate on this retreat are gentler than the other three retreats, and taught as a guided meditation. The hikes bring refreshment and revitalisation without being strenuous.

The premises are chosen for comfort, style and peace and the food is seasonal and uplifting, carefully selected for nutritional balance and grown locally. Witness for yourself your body, mind and soul respond to a week of regeneration in nature’s paradise in the Western Ghats.

With its mystical misty mountains and awesome eucalyptus forests, pretty coffee plantations and lush meadows Kodiakanal, known to its friends as Kodi, is an ideal site for the numerous eco- spiritual communities, eco-minded hoteliers and resorts, which have set up home here. Granite cliffs, forested valleys, lakes, waterfalls and grassy hills, border the evergreen forest beyond. Kodi can be understood as an energy centre. It is a place where magic mushrooms grow wild (the flora and fauna is generally surreal – take the Bengal Monitor as an example), the air is so pure and the waterfalls tells stories.

It is truly a magical place, an energetically charged wonder of the world. We have carefully selected the accommodation after spot checking a number of resorts over a period of months. We chose the resorts that employed the happiest staff, in the most stunning locations with the highest standards or cleanliness and maintenance. In particular we chose locations nearby the lively and bustling market town replete with chocolate, spices and pretty shops of pottery and crafts on the one hand and lush forrest and waterfalls within walking distance for the second half of the trip. We have also arranged for one night’s camping after short one-hour stroll around the farm, and ensured for the provision of good quality tents and sleeping bags on Day 4.
