What is Hatha yoga?
Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga derived from one of the six schools of Hinduism. It is the science of yoga which purifies the whole physical body by means of shatkarma (six cleansing practices), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), mudra (seals), bandha (locks) and concentration, as a prelude to raja (Kingly) yoga and samadhi (higher state of awareness commonly referred to as “bliss”). All of which are accessible during your retreat.

We value providing intimate learning experiences. This means that we typically limit the number of guests to around 20 per group. Our aim is to provide personalized experiences where everyone can interact and feel a sense of community.
