On Sunday at 16.00 your retreat begins with a Welcome, some delicious healthy organic snacks and introductions to your fellow guests. After this you will be shown around the shala and the nearby countryside as well as having some time to settle in before your first yoga session for the week, which will be the foundation for all the following classes throughout your stay.
During your retreat you will have the opportunity to join a guided hike and we can show you routes for more walks in the mountains if you wish.

'When you are content to simply be yourself, and do not compete or contend, you will gain true respect.'
At Yoga Sutra Shala the system of teaching is based upon personalising the classes and workshops towards your needs and desires, to help you learn and develop at your own pace.
Note that all the classes, the hike and workshops are optional during your yoga retreat. It is your time to do as you wish to make the most of your stay.
All of the meals are created for you on the principles of plant-based, wholegrain, organic nutrition, to maintain and build on your health throughout your stay and beyond.
