3 Week Advaita & Ayurveda Yoga Retreat

- This yoga retreat is available from March 25th to April 14th, 2017 -

The Advaita & Ayurveda Retreat in Guatemala is intended to offer you space, guidance and inspiration to allow for 21 days of profound Self-Enquiry Meditation and Yoga sadhana along with Ayurvedic din acharya. It will be a time devoted to self-enquiry, the joy of yoga, stillness and quietude, and profound healing through the gift of Ayurveda. 

Yoga retreat highlights:

  • Private consultations with the main teachers to set and clarify intentions
  • More than 150 hours of immersion
  • Vegan Meals daily
  • Ayurvedic consultation with Tiffany


These 3 weeks will be an intensive process of deepening your understanding of the potency of these sacred ancient teachings and finding the most unique and beneficial way for you to integrate them fully into your life well beyond the retreat. Although this is organised as a group immersion, there will be an ongoing focus upon aiding each practitioner to truly find their own love for enquiry and the most optimal way to create a daily routine that will be serving and bring continued healing, peace and self-knowing. There will be periods and days of silence and reflection, but the entire retreat is not in complete silence.
