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.

We are just back after a wonderful short break at Prema Shanti Yoga & Meditation Retreat and would highly recommend it. The beautiful couple Mara and Janardhan are caring and knowledgeable hosts who put their heart and soul in running the place. The morning meditation and evening yoga sessions are just amazing, and the meals served are super delicious and portions huge. The place itself is beautiful, clean, peaceful, blissful, private yet open and well laid out with a number of well thought out communal nooks to chat, read, rest, relax, meditate or just take in the surrounding beauty. The sights and sounds of the rainforest with its bird and animal life while lying in a hammock is a treat in its self. We booked via a google search not knowing what to expect, and so grateful to have left with a special connection with the place and the wonderful people who run it. Thanks so much Mara and Janardhan.

What a fabulous experience! Prema Shanti met my expectations perfectly. A relaxed, low key (but comfortable) and warm, welcoming environment, surrounded by gorgeous rainforest and the sound of various animals on your doorstep. Daily morning meditation was wonderful, and I really enjoyed the different styles of yoga each evening. There is a real focus here on teaching, learning, and practicing mindfulness. The communal meals served after meditation and yoga was a really lovely experience, and so tasty. I felt extremely relaxed here and the schedule was perfectly balanced to still allow time to explore the Daintree. Mara and Janardhan were a pleasure to meet and talk to. They have worked really hard to create a beautiful experience in their piece of paradise. Highly recommend for anyone wishing to switch off from their daily grind, slow down, and reconnect with themselves. Look forward to coming back!

After spending six days at Prema Shanti I feel completely rejuvenated. Mara and Janardhan are incredible hosts. They are around if you need help or have any questions, but not over attentive if you are after some solitude. By the end of the week there was an ease that felt like you were in the home of a friend. Even yoga beginners can do well in their classes. The limited number of guests mean that each person is encouraged to push themselves and improve their technique. I was pleasantly surprised with what I was able to pick up, and left with a great sense of achievement and the desire to continue to improve. Rooms and bathroom facilities are basic but fitting for the style of experience, and perfectly clean and comfortable. The rainforest setting is idyllic but comes with the standard precautions of living with nature – take mozzie repellent and keep your room door closed and everything is fine. I can not recommend this experience highly enough for anyone wanting to slow down, improve their yoga & meditation, and meet some wonderful people.

A great back to nature retreat in stunning location. Great yoga instruction and meditation, wholesome vegetarian food, and lovely hosts. The facilities are clean and simple, very natural and lots of relaxation spots. Good location to go exploring Cape Tribulation and easy access to nice cafes, lovely walks and stunning beaches.

I had the best 4 days at Prema Shanti Yoga in July. The setting is absolutely stunning, the food was delicious and both Mara and Janardhan are both incredible teachers who tailor the sessions for your level of experience. I will 100% be going back and recommending to friends. The perfect place to slow down, ground and rejuvenate.

We had a great stay. I was a beginner at Yoga and they really pushed me to show me how much progress I need to make in the future. It’s a beautiful location in the rainforest. They were very gracious to let me play their hang drum. Magical moments and beautiful people!

Incredible place. Incredible yoga teachers. Incredible food. It’s a place to ground and to stop and to feel. It’s also an excellent place from which to explore the Daintree. Mara and Jinarden are beautiful hosts who encourage you to feel the steps you take, to notice your breath, who are there if you want to talk of deeper things. A special place. Thank you ❣️
