Concept

Our Nature Explorer (an expanded version of the Yoga, Hike & Bike program) offers a rejuvenating retreat adventure in paradise for yoga, nature & soft-adventure lovers.

 

Modern life has got many of us stuck indoors. Whether it's in a stuffy workspace behind a PC or in the house doing a never-ending list of chores, it seems there is so little time to really feel and move our bodies or spend quality time in nature, and even less to time to connect movement and nature together in a mindful way. This program is dedicated to taking time-out to move your body and re-connect with yourself and the temple of nature through a variety of soft-adventure experiences.

Approach

Our Nature Explorer Program blends the daily Yoga Sadhana with a daily soft-adventure in inspiring locations around our paradise island. The soft-adventure activities will depend on the season and weather and will include a mix of hiking and cycling, plus sea kayaking, snorkeling, and/or sup, according to what the weather allows and participants' wishes.

The daytime activities are supported by two daily delicious and nutritious meals, a Satsang on the connection between yoga & the senses and a mid-week meditation, plus plenty of free time each day for you to rest & recharge, and relaxing evenings at the retreat.

Led by Suncokret co-founders, Eve & Steve, this light-hearted retreat adventure is intended to get you tuned up and into your Self and the temple of Nature so that you can better breathe, move, feel, be, and connect.

Who is this for?

The program is suitable for yoga, nature, and soft-adventure lovers who are in good health and physically able to participate in the activities on offer.
