Four Day Yoga/Simple Living Retreat

Bermuda

Introducing a Four Day Workshop/Retreat at Kak’s Shanti

‘SIMPLE LIVING RETREAT”

THE OVERVIEW

This is an off-grid, simple living situation without the usual plumbing and power we so often take for granted. Here we are obliged to be mindful of every drop of water and every ampere we use. While we’re at it, we might as well be mindful of the fragile desert environment and the ecosystem at large!

Tune in to alternative ablutions! But don’t worry, here we have a solution for all your needs, though it may be a bit different than what you’re used to!
That is a key component of this whole concept…

Come armed with a desire to learn and relax. To learn relaxedly. This is not an intensive event!

The retreat consists of:
– accomodation (4 nights)
– one meal a day (4 x brunch)
– daily asana practice (90 minutes with teacher, 4 sessions)
– daily hour long workshop on interesting topics (4 workshops) 

– local knowledge/assistance

I will always willingly share local knowledge/maps/info for your afternoon gallavants and help as I am able.

 

THE WORKSHOP TOPICS

-Yoga philosophy, pranayama, meditation, karma yoga

– Simple living and basic permaculture techniques 

– Sourdough bread making, kombucha making, sauerkraut and other lacto ferments

 

 

THE ACCOMODATION; CASITA TARA

This is a treat! A brand newly built little “sleep out” made mostly of windows! Don’t worry, there are curtains for privacy but whoa, what a night sky view this provides; experience sleeping outside without sleeping outside! Of course there is always the option of actually sleeping outside with many strategically placed futons.

Casita Tara is only a bedroom. It has no electricity or anything else except a glorious view! Consider the situation “glamping”! (Camping but in a very comfortable, large, solid tent!)

THE LOCATION

Kak’s Shanti is located several miles up a county maintained dirt road, off scenic highway #9, 8 miles

from the East entrance of Zion National Park. This is a fairly remote location; come prepared! Snacks, water and any other necessities are a good drive away so plan ahead.
