Becoming the Light – A Sadhana Retreat with Kay Yuen

13-17 December 2023

About this retreat

The Sadhana Retreat has been running since January 2020 as a way for urbanites to experience yogic living. This is a wonderful opportunity to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with your inner self. Throughout the retreat, you will follow an ashram schedule that is designed to help you cultivate awareness, focus and inner peace.

The retreat will take place in the peaceful countryside by the beach, surrounded by nature and away from the distractions of the modern world. This serene environment will allow you to fully immerse yourself in your spiritual practice and connect with the natural world around you. You will engage in various spiritual practices and learnings such as meditation, yoga asanas, chanting, pranayama, philosophy, mindfulness, fasting and self-reflection.

During these five days, you will embrace the “simple living, high thinking” lifestyle, while focusing on embracing your inner light. This retreat will provide you with the tools to quiet your mind, calm your emotions, integrate this practice into your daily life and share your inner peace with everyone around you.
