Discover your Elemental Flow with YOGASCAPES
Mar

to Mar 23

Discover your Elemental Flow with YOGASCAPES

This yoga and Ayurveda retreat is all about taking a giant leap towards your fullest, most alive and vibrant self.  In one of the most beloved Vedic myths, Hanuman takes a giant leap of growth and transformation as he traverses from India to Sri Lanka in a hero’s journey to save the goddess Sita who has been taken from Ram. Along the way he encounters multiple obstacles that ultimately challenge him to step into the fullest, most beautiful version of himself. As we take our own journey to the magical lands of Sri Lanka, we will harness the teachings of Hanuman’s journey, and through the lens of Ayurveda, reconnect with and celebrate our own true nature, while also inviting in plenty of time for rest, relaxation, nourishment and connection with our fellow travellers.

Reserve your spot and find out more here.
