From Sound to Silence, From Earth to Ether – Yoga Retreat

May 26, 2023, 2:00 pm - May 28, 2023, 10:00 am

Surrender to the journey from Sound to Silence and from Earth to Ether

Join Taru Tuohiniemi in the Blue Mountains for this all-inclusive boutique retreat: your time out of time to pause, nourish and reconnect with yourself.

Why This Retreat?

If you’re looking to explore or dive deeper into the elements of sound and silence, and earth and ether within yoga, movement and meditation, and open yourself to practices that embrace these elements, this retreat offers you an immersion to the transformative modalities and rituals.

You may be new to yoga or have a regular practice but if your usual yoga studio classes leave you curious and craving for more understanding, embodied experience and exploration of these elements, this retreat is for you.

At the transition point from autumn to winter, we will synchronize with the nature, tapping into the wisdom traditions of ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Time For You

This full weekend experience leaves enough space also for you pause, nourish and reconnect with your inner Self, whether this will be enjoying the Blue Mountains walks and waterfalls, our venue’s in-house spa or simply stay and reflect.
