About Retreats

Retreats are offered by guest instructors or  by the co-creators of Shanti, Wendy and Darin who have been immersed in yoga for nearly 30 years. Guests are provided with an opportunity to go beyond the mental chatter of their mind and connect with the Stillness  or Presence that lies within them.  It’s a feeling of coming back home. The practice of shifting attention from the mind to the Stillness of the Heart brings depth; connecting us with the sacred dimension of our being, and anchoring our lives in a place of increased Peace, Joy, Love, and Freedom.

Disconnect from the “busyness” of life and give yourself the gift of a retreat at Shanti. Relax, reflect and restore waterside while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the countryside and our country inn. Find your sacred space.

Retreats with Wendy and Darin include;

  • Shared (3 -4 share), semi private (2 share) or camping accommodation
  • Delicious vegetarian meals served buffet style
  • Silent morning walk and walking meditation
  • Gentle hatha/slow flow yoga classes with an awareness of the body, breath, energy (chakras) and the Stillness of the heart (suitable for all levels)
  • Evening restorative yoga practice & yoga nidra (the yoga of deep relaxation);
  • Guided silent sittings/meditation
  • An infrared sauna session and the use of Shanti’s amenities – wifi, wellness tea bar, infrared sauna, canoes, kayaks, hammocks, and walking and cycling routes.

    You’ll also have plenty of free time to nurture yourself with a book from our collection, take a walk in nature,  or simply do your own thing. All scheduled activities are optional; it’s your retreat! Some retreats also include a special guest sharing an inspiring workshop, or musical performance.
