Weekend 24-26 November 2017 | Strathean Retreat Centre, Otaki
This retreat is open to everyone wishing to explore & benefit from an authentic yoga practice.
With practice yoga can enrich, inform and illuminate everything you do. The system of Yoga we teach is called Yoga in Daily Life which was developed by Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda (Vishwaguruji), an authentic Yoga Master who hails from a long lineage of great Indian Masters. While completely true to the authentic tradition of classic Yoga, it is designed to meet the needs of our modern times. It is a holistic system of health, encompassing the science of body, mind, consciousness and soul.
In this busy world we live in we all need a break sometimes. A retreat is an opportunity to find some tranquillity and space among our busy lives. The weekend schedules has been carefully designed for a balance between doing & being; programs & free time; challenges & nourishment.
