AYURVEDIC CLEANSE

 

AYURVEDIC
CLEANSE PROGRAM

Year-round Yoga Retreat. Start any day.

OVERVIEW

The Lotus Shores Yoga Retreat is a year-round immersion in the following practices: meditation in movement (asana) and stillness, nada and mantra (inner and sacred sound), and pranayama (mind and breath). Undertake life’s most important journey, the discovery of the Self, using the pathways mapped by these practices. Experience true sadhana, the act of reclaiming that which is divine in us, the truth and power of our being. This is experienced as the innate intelligence of our embodiment that is naturally in harmony with the cycles of the cosmos; we also know it as our ability to heal and uplift our selves and others. In this immersion, we will deepen our capacity to listen, love, and serve—by cultivating these karmas (actions) we become established in our essence-nature, from where we create more compassionate and loving relationships and live lives of true purpose.

 

This immersion is for someone who wants to experience more freedom, clarity, and joy in their lives by deepening an existing practice with the study of more subtle forms of yoga alongside asana (breath, mind, sound, etc.).

TESTIMONIALS

My time at Lotus shore was absolute magic during my six day yoga immersion. The program that Arianne and Leela have put together is the perfect balance of structure and flexibility. I found the structure I desired with the outline of the program and  the abundant class schedule. Everyday there were opportunities for me to join in on the yoga classes, meditation and pranayama practice, and healing sound bath.

ACCOMODATION

OPTIONS

 

SIARGAO ISLAND

Since it was discovered by surfers in the late 80’s / early 90’s, Siargao has then become the tropical island destination for surfers and non-surfers alike. It offers, for the yoga practitioner, the opportunity to practice in nature, close to the elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) which reflect the different dimensions and aspects of ourselves. We come away more embodied and with greater self-awareness.

 

The island has plenty of natural pools, lagoons, waterfalls and caves, one can visit between during or after the program. Tours, surf lessons, and other outdoor activities can be organized upon arrival, with the Program Coordinator and the front desk.
