Your Workout


Pilates with Heather

Each morning Heather will lead a 90-minute morning Pilates session in beautiful Yantra Hall, focusing on core strength, flexibility, balance and alignment.


Yoga with Michelle

Popular yoga instructor and certified homeopathy practitioner Michelle will lead a two-hour late afternoon yoga practice, designed to re-balance body and mind.


Both Heather and Michelle will focus on four key areas: Core, Back/Spine, Shoulders and Hips.


With a deeper understanding of these two highly synergistic disciplines, participants will bring more to their mat in every subsequent practice, reaping huge physical benefits and minimizing injury potential, along with an inner glow that doesn’t fade!


In addition to daily practice, participants also partake in two restorative and therapeutic YBR workshops designed to teach self-healing techniques for key areas of the body.


Yamuna Body Rolling® Sessions with Mika

Two Yamuna Body Rolling® workshops will be offered during the retreat (concentrating on upper and lower body). Mika will also give one private YPR session to each participant for individual release and therapy. 



Kamalaya’s Wellness Program


Participants will also enjoy Kamalaya’s transformative wellness program with five treatments tailor-made for this retreat, alongside Kamalaya’s renowned, healthy, and nourishing detox menu.


Upon arrival, participants undergo a Bio Impedance Analysis and Wellness consultation with a Kamalaya naturopath, to set the course for his or her eating plan throughout the duration of the retreat.
