Traditional Hatha Yoga Shuddhi Gathering

Thursday 06 January, 2022 - Sunday 09 January, 2022


Shuddhi is the Sanskrit word for Purification. Gather Together to Cleanse Your Mind and Body as You Feed Your Heart and Soul


In the same way that a room collects dust and clutter and needs regular cleaning, the body and mind can collect toxins or blocks that create imbalance or sluggishness in our systems, eventually leading to ill health and disconnection from our higher source. A regular inner clean-up and the development of positive lifestyle habits are key to maintaining health, wellbeing and spiritual transformation.

Gather together to learn traditional Hatha Yoga, detox cleansing practices and mindfulness meditation to activate and purify the body and mind. The Traditional Hatha Yoga Shuddhi Gathering is wonderful preparation for the body, mind and energy before meditation. So while this can be attended as a stand-alone gathering, we highly recommend joining us for the Power of Awareness, for a far deeper silent meditation experience. If you choose to book both the Traditional Hatha Yoga Shuddhi & Power of Awareness Gatherings as a package, you will receive one free night of meals and accommodation in between the two gatherings 

Discuss nutritional tools to support digestive health and activation of your vital energy body. Explore the importance of the relaxation response, sleep hygiene and restorative practices to strengthen immunity and support optimal health & wellbeing.
