Benefits of 5-Day Meditation/Yoga Retreat
As my first retreat I came expecting to expand my knowledge about yoga and meditation. But I got so much more, by actually expanding my knowledge about myself, and how my mind works. And most important, how to guide it towards happiness and for that I'll be forever grateful.
I enjoyed everything! The space is super cozy and relaxing. The schedule was perfectly balanced, the food was amazing.

While there are many different styles of yoga that all offer valuable opportunities to learn and grow, here at Lotus Village, we utilize a combination of Hatha, Restorative and Yoga Therapy to teach you not only the physical aspects of the yoga asanas, but also the philosophy of yoga as well and the wisdom of this ancient method of self-inquiry. And to better illustrate the concepts of yoga, each day there will be a particular theme for the class such as, mindfulness, compassion, empowerment, grounding, etc. that you will learn about and focus on practicing through the meditation, pranayama and asanas. This helps to not only better organize your practice, but it also gives a structure to begin understanding how to integrate your practice into your day-to-day life, rather than simply experiencing a series of asanas that feel random and purely fitness oriented.
Our yoga is taught by certified yoga instructor and holistic therapist, Tania Manczarek, and is accessible to all levels whether you're a newbie, a beginner or you've been practicing for some time. Everything is explained so that you feel confident and relaxed each step of the way, making it easier to connect to the practice, understand the philosophy and learn the correct posture alignments. The Hatha and Restorative styles of the physical yoga practice are done slowly focusing on learning how to do the postures correctly, while using different props and adjustments for your body and level of skill. This way, each person can practice according to their physical ability and what feels right for them.
The benefits of meditation are profound and can significantly improve the quality of your life. It is an ancient practice of introspection, self-inquiry and reflection that brings a deep sense of peace and serenity to ones’ life. Numerous studies have shown how meditation helps to improve concentration, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, helps us manage stress and anger, improve sleep quality as well as multiple benefits for our mind, body and spirit.
During your retreat, you will learn practical techniques to develop your own meditation practice at home or to deepen your current practice. You will be introduced to different techniques such as sitting meditation, walking meditation, movement meditation, breathing techniques and mantras, experimenting with each type of meditation technique to discover the ones that work best for you. You will find our teaching style to be very practical, easy to understand and adaptable with the main goal of guiding you to begin your own practice at home of just 5 minutes each day. Like this, we have found our students feel inspired to continue their practice in their own lives and to experience ongoing benefits long after their retreat.
