The Focus of this
Yoga and Meditation Retreat….."Free the Spirit"
Unburden the body, mind and spirit by letting go of expectations,
ego, preconceived ideas, outdated beliefs, attachments, comparisons,
expectations, competitiveness, force, and other self limiting notions
and beliefs resulting in greater health, happiness and peace of mind. So
join us with an open mind and open heart.
The Benefits of
this Yoga and Meditation Retreat:
-Tips on cultivating a healthier lifestyle.

power and flexibility.

-Recognizing your strengths with positive thoughts.

focusing on it will help us to find the concentration.

More about Yoga & Meditation:
Meditation is the continual, uninterrupted conscious ability to
hold your mind at its quietest and calmest state. This awareness can
only be achieved through great discipline and the practice of getting
past the shallow, busy thoughts that plague each and every person’s
mind. Our minds produce thoughts on conscious and subconscious levels;
at times we may be thinking negatively without even realizing it.
Meditation brings about an inner awareness that enables the person
engaging in it to detach themselves from the unnecessary brainwork.
The purest form of happiness comes from a less polluted mind that
filters negative activity from its space. This can be likened to
a spiritual journey. And certainly a quest for vision. Meditation sharpens the
mind while in that very state, but it also gives a person the
necessary tools to change the thought process in many other
situations. Anger, jealousy, and frustration are a few of the many
feelings that a person has the ability to control. By realizing a
specific emotion is present (much like the way you are aware of your
state of mind in meditation), you can then separate yourself from that
feeling; it is not a part of you, just another passing thought.
Meditation allows a person to learn different “thought behavior”. It
is essentially self-manipulation of the mind.
The very reason meditation has such a profound effect on numerous
lives is that the process enables us to be our own witness to every
aspect of thought and live “in the now”. A meditative lifestyle
ensures that a person can live life this way as much as they choose
to. The power of now is achieved through conscious thought and causes
a person to feel more grateful and content on a daily basis.
Venturing deeper inside of your self by the power of meditation
detaches people from emotional baggage, their ego, and the solid world
in which we live. The true personality can shine through when negative
thoughts are not present in the mind. The mind is an abstract space
that is seldom calm, but when settled it benefits a person to an
Everyone deserves a time out, and when you have the chance to take a break, there are many options
available. We hope you will join us on one of our retreats in Bali
or Thailand or other places.
A Yoga Vacation, Holiday, Getaway or Retreat offers the opportunity for a
spiritual journey, vision quest, healthy fun adventure to fascinating and exotic places. In addition to an
Asana Practice, utilizing
various styles of Hatha Yoga to
strengthen, cleanse and purify the body, our retreats also include Meditation
and Pranayama (breathwork).
Researchers have conducted studies on people who meditate and have
found that they are often happier, more apt to be able to concentrate
for long periods of time, and able to calm themselves efficiently
during a state of panic, anger, or frustration. People who engage in
meditation often feel that they lead more fulfilling lives. The human
nature causes most humans to have insatiable appetites for material
and superficial things, however, once these desires are overcome with
the power of mediation, life can be lead to the fullest.
