Yoga Retreat - Paradise Island


In the Bahamas yoga can become a way of life for a few days, a few weeks or even for some months. In the Bahamas yoga can be truly experienced for its deeply relaxing and rejuvenating effects. You have time on your hands to immerse yourself in the spirit of yoga and the whole structure of daily life in the ashram in the Bahamas supports your yoga practice.

In the Bahamas yoga classes take place outdoors and so participants in the yoga classes not only benefit from the health-giving effects of the asanas (yoga postures). They also have the added benefit of the healing, energizing rays of the sun. The sun gives life, it adds to our life-force, our “prana”. In the Bahamas yoga is practiced outdoors, on yoga platforms overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. When yoga is practiced in sunshine, in the open fresh air, in a natural environment, the benefits of yoga are enhanced and quickly begin to reveal themselves in our bodies, our minds and our spirits. The body starts to feel strong and alive, the mind becomes open and relaxed, the spirit becomes more peaceful and more joyful.

In the Bahamas yoga practice can also be positively affected by living in the spiritual community of the ashram. Associating with fellow practitioners of yoga each day, in a loving and nurturing environment is one of the most healing experiences we can give ourselves. A sense of well-being and of being at ease with life and with oneself arises, the spirit is uplifted and a greater joy is therefore experienced from the practice of yoga. Living with others who have strong yoga practices can inspire and strengthen one’s own yoga practice.
