This fall retreat is the ideal antidote for the busy and often stressful lives we lead. The greatest gift you can give yourself is the opportunity to switch from a state of ‘doing’ to a state of simply “being”. The intention of the therapeutic and restorative yoga classes offered this weekend is to support the entire organism through rest. We will yield the body with the assistance of multiple props and the luxury of time. This practice of global release is passive and nourishing, calming the nervous system and promoting deep healing. This retreat is suitable for all levels and includes four restorative yoga classes, evening gathering, five wholesome and delicious meals, accommodation, time to reflect, connect and enjoy Shanti’s amenities. Lovingly come back to yourself through a process of replenishment and rejuvenation.

Accommodation at Shanti Retreat
4 restorative yoga classes with Joshua Lewis (suitable for all levels) and evening yoga nidra
5 sumptuous vegetarian meals
An infrared sauna session

You’ll also have plenty of free time to nurture yourself with a book from our collection, take a walk in nature, or simply do your own thing. All scheduled activities are optional.

Joshua is a yoga practitioner and teacher known for offering classes that encourage safe and compassionate inquiry into the pulsating experience of life – on and off the mat. His calm and supportive guidance is sought after by students of all level, age and life circumstance, knowing that he teaches humbly and with deep respect for each individual’s personal practice. He believes passionately that when we practice yoga, we are practicing for life and as such, each class is an opportunity to connect deeply with ourselves. On the mat, we develop an intimate relationship that allows us to heal, to grow and to transform.

Joshua guides his students with gentleness and precision. He desires for each student to feel that they can fully inhabit their practice, taking up residence in their physical bodies and feeling the surge of their energetic spirit. From here we endeavour to bring compassionate attention to the fluctuating realm of our mental and emotional experiences. We honour where we are – right now, right here – today.
