Restorative Yoga Retreat with Danika: Balancing the elements within
The holistic principles of yoga, ayurveda, and astrology teach that the universe and each of us – is composed of five subtle elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space.

In this rejuvenating and restorative yoga retreat, we explore and experience the joy of these subtle energies within us. Through asana, meditation, and discussion, we restore ourselves with a focus on breath awareness, easy movement, and gentle postures supported by props (blocks, blankets, and bolsters), which encourage opening and release. Retreat includes: four restorative yoga classes, five wholesome and delicious meals, accommodation, time to reflect, connect and enjoy Shanti’s amenities.
