During this week long retreat, we will develop an attitude of mindfulness and apply it to a variety of yoga and meditation practices. We will explore self-analysis techniques and cultivate a perspective conducive to managing the mind and emotions. The object is to create greater self-awareness leading to more harmonious expression in our outer life.

The practices are supported by theory and discussion sessions, yoga classes and participation in the Anahata Yoga Retreat lifestyle, including periods of silence to compliment the inward journey.

This retreat is held in a tranquil and spectacular natural location overlooking the beautiful Golden Bay. This setting provides an ideal environment, away from daily distractions for your self-exploration. Suitable for all levels of experience with meditation and yoga.

In this course you will:

- Understand the purpose and benefits of meditative practices
- Develop a relationship with the mind and the ability to ‘lighten its load’.
- Be exposed to a variety of classical meditation techniques and SWAN self-analysis.
- Follow a classical progression of practices, allowing you to advance at your own pace.
- Includes Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra relaxation & Karma Yoga
- Mantra Meditation and Havan (Fire Ceremony)
