Detailed Description

FLOW FOR THE WEEK

Supreme self-care and absolute enjoyment of life are the central themes of this retreat. As such, days will be spent in slow paced pursuit of a sense of wonder and play, experienced through immersion in spectacular natural surroundings and through rejuvenating rituals for beauty and balance. Evenings designed for peace, quiet and reflection will culminate in a dreamy sleep under a sky full of stars.

LOCATION 

Referred to as “the pearl of the south pacific,” Rarotonga is the stuff dreams are made of- epic, jungle-clad mountains cascade to sparkling, sapphire blue lagoons and spectacular coral reefs. Secluded white sand beaches sparkle and contrast dramatically against the volcanic peaks and lush rainforest landscapes that define the island’s interior. Beyond the stunning natural beauty, Rarotonga is the spiritual and cultural center of the Cook Islands, her people, true lovers of life and the epitome of warmth and welcoming. Here, time slows to the pace of nature, inviting you to relax and rediscover the joy of simply being.

 

YOGA AND MEDITATION

Daily yoga classes are designed to support students in exploring and deepening their practice. Sessions can range from slow, deep stretching and therapeutic themes, to more challenging, vinyasa flow style classes. Morning meditations offer participants an opportunity to experience a range of techniques emphasizing simple methods that can be integrated into daily life.

Certified yoga instructor, Thai yoga massage therapist and Chrysalis Yoga Retreats Founder, Kim Wolff, will lead our daily yoga and meditation classes, providing gentle guidance and focused support while allowing space for each student to find their own connection to the practice. Soulful and playful by nature, Kim’s class sessions are based on classical Hatha yoga philosophy, postures, breath work and the principles of Ayurveda. Organic aromatherapy is used as a therapeutic tool to assist with the process of healing and transformation.

* All classes and activities are optional. Our program is designed to meet you where you’re at physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We encourage you to participate in a way that best suits your body, mind and spirit. Practitioners of all levels are welcome, including those with no prior experience.

CUISINE

All cuisine served during our retreat will highlight fresh, local, seasonal, organic ingredients and will be primarily vegetarian + pescatarian with vegan and gluten free options available. Our culinary journey will begin each day with a healthy, high-vibe tropical breakfast served on-site at our retreat center. Lunch and dinner will either be served in house or at specially selected locations in and around the island. We’ll have the opportunity to partake of traditional fare cooked in earthen ovens, enjoy a fresh fish bbq on the beach, indulge in an evening of fine dining at Rarotonga’s “Restaurant of the Year,” and savor a seaside supper right on the sand to allow for optimal sunset viewing- a magical experience not to be missed. We’ll also visit the Muri Night Market which features a great selection of food stalls where we’ll sample local cuisine while enjoying live music under the stars.

The Kathmandu Valley was once a vast lake trapped by the Himalayas.

Since then, the sacred valley has been home to the Buddha, Lord Shiva, great yogis like Goraknath and Matsyendranath, Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche), Kali, Vajrayogini, a retinue of dakinis, and a continual mix of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims dating back to the 5 BCE. The entire Kathmandu Valley is a World Heritage site, a living museum, filled with ancient temples, hidden shrines, enormous stupas, and priceless stone sculptures. Nepal is the perfect location to explore the roots of yoga and tantric worship in both ancient Hindu and Buddhist yogic practices. This Yoga Adventure is the perfect way to experience important religious sites in a way that you will understand their meaning.

The thread of this unique Himalayan pilgrimage is the Yoga, and you will receive over 75 hours of teachings and yoga practice as we travel to some of the most sacred sites of Nepal.

  • Wander the winding streets of medieval towns to visit ancient shrines, temples and museums.
  • Learn about devotional iconography in architecture, sculpture and art.
  • Walk the Kora around the Boudhanath stupa overseen by the eyes of the Buddha.
  • Receive Buddhist and Hindu teachings from spiritual masters.
