Yoga & Meditation Retreat – November 10-12

Reconnect your senses and get yourself outdoors in a peaceful weekend escape in Baler. Start each day with a rejuvenating yoga session, soothe the mind through meditation, explore an organic farm and enjoy homecooked meals prepared with love! Leave the retreat feeling renewed and recharged for a new week ahead!

 

Accommodation – Easy Adventure

Our days mean surfing the beachfront, swimming in the river, snacking by the mangroves, or napping on a hammock. Nights are spent amidst the presence of fireflies, enjoying the ocean breeze, or unwinding by a bonfire. A visit here includes well-appointed tents, warm meals, and a hospitable staff— inviting you to experience why we fell in love with this spot—the simplicity of camping, now enhanced with the convenience of service.
Sustainability is a conscious effort for us. Running purely on natural resources and no electricity, our full-service campsite assures minimal impact on the environment. The natural ocean breeze cools during the day while rechargeable lamps illuminate at night. Sometimes during a full moon, lamps are even unnecessary. To decrease disruption to the ocean and river, all our water activities are non-motorized too. Call it staying true to the spirit of camping, or a digital detox if you will, a holiday in The Conservatory is designed so you can spend less time checking your email, and more time counting the fireflies.

 

Activities

Vinyasa/Hatha/Yin Yoga

Our yoga sessions will draw from hatha, vinyasa and yin inspired yoga. Hatha and Yin which are therapeutic and restorative in nature and Vinyasa which is actively engaging (one movement, onebreath). All asanas focus on addressing the needs of body, mind, spirit.

Meditation

Meditation is when we calm the body and still the mind. We will utilize breathing exercises and gentle stretching techniques to bring greater clarity, focus, balance and restoration to the mind. We will learnthe art of meditation as well as use the science of techniques to achieve that state.

Hiking

Go on a jungle hiking expedition that ends with a cool dip in natural springs from one of Baler’s majestic waterfalls.
