Purna Yoga Retreat is a dedicated residential centre for yoga and meditation programs with a heart and soul. Whether you are looking to begin your new yoga adventure, deepen your existing yoga practice or just rest, relax and enjoy this tranquil yogic environment, our centre is the perfect place for you.
Yoga beginners will be encouraged to explore their asana practice and yoga fundamentals in a safe and nurturing environment. Experienced yogis can take their practice to a new level and discover different facets and elements of a complete yoga practice under the guidance of our experienced teachers.
Purna means "complete", yoga means "unity" and this is what we strive to achieve at Purna Yoga - a complete union of body, mind and spirit through a wide-range of yoga and meditation practices. We also emphasise that yoga offers a lot more than just physical movement and technique.
Yoga is a mind-set and a way of living, it is a state of deep inner connection with ourselves and the world around us. To experience yoga in its complete holistic approach is to bring more harmony, peace and contentment into our lives and to transform unwanted patterns into blissful living.
At Purna Yoga Retreat our primary yoga style is traditional Hatha but we enjoy combining many variations and elements from different yoga styles– Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini for a more diverse and complete yoga experience. We explore asanas, breathing exercises, dynamic flow sequences, various meditation techniques as well as other forms of yoga – the healing sounds of yoga nada, soothing chants of bhakti yoga and deep relaxation through yoga nidra. Our holistic approach will give you what you need to develop a practice and lifestyle that you can sustain long after your holiday ends.
There is also plenty of time for rest and relaxation either in our garden, rocking in a hammock, enjoying a steam bath or a mud bath, reading a book by the pond or taking a plunge in the neighbouring outdoor heated swimming pool.
Our yoga retreat centre also organises themed yoga retreats – yoga detox, yoga weight loss, sound healing, mandala making and bhakti yoga retreats. During these retreats the basis is still yoga and meditation but more focus is given to additional elements and activities.
