WHAT DOES A TYPICAL RETREAT DAY LOOK LIKE?
There is no “typical” day, as each moment owns an entirely unique process; however to give you an idea, here is a general outline for one of the days.

The afternoon and evening hours finish with a Yin yoga class in combination of reiki or a sound bath. All this will ensure a healthy appetite for a dinner and after you can relax in your room or the spa.

HOW BETREAT DIFFER FROM OTHER YOGA RETREATS?

Every moment and element of the retreat is designed to form an important part of the bigger transformative process.
