About Us

Your hosts, Mara Staffieri and Janardhan McIntosh are a husband and wife team who through our vision for a yoga retreat centre where people could come and share with us our passion and love for yoga and meditation, created the Prema Shanti Yoga and Meditation Retreat centre.

My wife and I met through yoga; we both experienced personally the positive transformational power that yoga and meditation can make in ones life; we both felt the need for a retreat centre where anyone with the desire to learn can come and share with other like minded people in a safe nurturing environment, the practice of yoga and meditation.

We are both committed to making a positive difference to others through sharing with you our life experiences, stories and practices.
