Retreats and Tours

 
Would you like to get closer to nature, get off the beaten track and have unforgettable experiences? We have teamed up with Caveman Adventures to offer a safe but yet exiting way to adventure into the wild!

For every tour you participate in, $10 is donated to the Rainforest Reserve, and for those lodging in the Yoga Lodge, the reserve receives another additional donation for every night you stay. This means you are saving trees whilst enjoying the beauty of the forest, the perfect way to give something back to nature!

You will be lodged in our amazing Yoga Lodge, and have the opportunity to participate in morning and evening mantra mediation programs and learn about simple living, high thinking, through the ancient teachings of the Vedas.
