 What can I expect from this Yoga Meditation Retreat?

Meditation is easy to learn with a course but it may be hard to practice on a regular basis if you haven't gotten to the depth where you will start to reap great benefits.

When beginning meditation people often find that they need some kind of course or retreat to really “break through” and discover what meditation can offer. This 6-day Yoga Meditation Retreat is perfect for that.

Equally, for people who are practicing meditation on a regular basis, it is a great space to deepen your current practice and be able to sharpen your abilities to go within.

The group will be no larger then 6 participants, which enables each participant to receive plenty of personalized time and guidance.

During this yoga meditation retreat you will learn:

  • The mechanics of meditation as you are being guided by experts in the field.
  • Many forms, tools and techniques of going within.
  • How to calm your mind and take control over your emotions and thus take control over your life.
  • How to increase the feeling of peace, calm and happiness in your life.
  • How to connect to the Source and live your live from your connection.
  • The main obstacles re. meditation and how to overcome them.
  • How to find access to the discipline that lives inside of you so you can succeed in making it a practice that fits into your daily life.
  • How to tackle challenges in your life and find the answers / solutions fast through meditation.
  • Gain awareness of your body through yoga practice.

You will find there will be a nice balance between teachings, meditating, being together and sharing and time for yourself.

This yoga meditation retreat will truly be an unforgettable experience!
