Living Big Retreat



Our mornings start with a peaceful and centered experience, beginning with seated meditation and chanting to set our intentions and cultivate a deeper sense of awareness. We then move into pranayama practices, focusing on breathwork to release tension and enhance our subtle energy awareness. The morning continues with an energetic asana yoga session that emphasizes proper alignment and tailored movements to meet the individual needs of each participant.


In the afternoons, we gather for insightful discussions aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of our yoga practices and their relevance in our modern lives. We explore topics related to our sense of self, identity, and the challenges we encounter in finding balance. These discussions set the foundation for themed workshops, where we delve into specific aspects of yoga, such as heart-opening postures, twists, inversions, or embrace a restorative practice for deep relaxation and rejuvenation.

Through disconnection from our daily lives, we create a space for inner exploration, allowing creativity to flourish and opening ourselves up to new possibilities. Together, we embark on a transformative journey, unlocking our potential to become the best versions of ourselves.
