Yoga, Hike & Bike
An energizing 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. If this sounds like you, isn't it high time you hit the stop button and took dedicated time out to move your body and re-connect with yourself and the world around you?
Our Yoga, Hike & Bike Program offers a daily Yoga Sadhana, combined with a daily hiking or biking adventure in inspiring locations around our paradise island. Your daytime activities are supported by two daily delicious and nutritious meals, and relaxing evening programs, including Satsang, meditation and other restorative activities, as agreed, alongside plenty of time each day for you to recharge in whatever way suits you best.
Led by Suncokret co-founders, Eve & Steve, this is light-hearted retreat adventure is intended to get you tuned up and into your Self and Mother Nature so that you can breathe, move, feel, be, and connect again.
Sadhana is a daily spiritual practice that includes a balancing blend of techniques to help you "tune into" yourself, the intentions you have for your life, and for the day ahead. Traditionally, chanting, pranayama, meditation, asanas (postures) & deep relaxation are key ingredients of this process.
The purpose of sadhana is to help you to start your day in a sacred, disciplined, and focused way. These 90 - minute sessions, will awaken you profoundly; aligning you to your body, mind, and spirit while preparing you to greet life's daily adventures with a sense of inner peace and clarity.
Hike & Bike
Hiking and biking is intended to provide you with an energizing (not exhausting) soft-adventure each day. The outings will take place in various locations around the island, guided by our sample itinerary, while the actual route we take to get there will be according to what fits best based on our participants' fitness level, wishes, and weather conditions.
Daily Time Out
In addition to the yoga & soft-adventure program, you will have dedicated free time each day to spend on location or back at the retreat so that you can fill your batteries in whatever way suits you!
This personalized retreat program comes complete with flexible booking options that enable you to join us according to your availability within the dates given. Sign up for a minimum 2-night stay and stay up to 11-nights by combing this retreat program with our Yoga B & B program as a warm-up.
