What made you decide to set up a Yoga & Meditation Retreat? 

I felt the need for a retreat centre, where anyone with the need to explore, rejuvenate, practice yoga and meditation, could come and relax in a purpose-built safe supportive environment. There is an emphasis here on awakening to what serves you, letting go of what does not. We share with our guests the eastern traditions of self-enquiry balanced with western insights and wisdom. We allow our guests the opportunity to explore their own innate spiritual nature in an environment specifically designed for empowerment, and awakening, through the practice of self-awareness.
