Rediscover Your Freedom Yoga Retreat

    Description

    We both know the challenges of juggling careers, colleagues, family, home and personal development. We’ve been there and still are; it’s a constant process of refining our lives and prioritizing what's important. But we know that we can really lead the lives we dream of, we can fulfill all our dreams, desires and needs. We already have the abundance we deserve. It’s up to us rediscover it, remember what is truly ours and open towards our new possibilities.

    The retreat is about stripping back the layers of conditioning and burdened emotion, peeling back the worries, fears and stresses,  shedding the old stuff that no longer serves us and stepping into the newness of our truth.

    Together we will rediscover radical trust, freedom, joy & bliss, and reconnect to our true nature.

    The Location and Venue

    Nestled within the jungles of a wave-fringed island, the Lotus Shores Yoga, Surf & Farm Retreat is a commune for yogis, seekers, surfers, and conscious adventurers traveling to Siargao to rest, manifest, connect, get barrelled and (or) enlightened. Our accommodations were created to support a deep integration of the learnings, insights and breakthroughs that arise from the practice.  It is in between sadhana when we shed our outdated ways of being and integrate the newly awakened parts of ourselves. This can only take place in an environment that encourages rest and deep listening.

    As a space dedicated to the remembrance of our true nature, our everyday activities (eating, walking, communicating, etc.) are a continuation of our practices (sadhana) and are approached with equal mindfulness, reverence, and devotion. 

    Whether or not one practice, they would benefit from the closeness to nature, open spaces, and the uplifting and positive environment of the retreat.

    It was founded on the goal of Yoga, the realization of the unity of Being, often experienced in the act of wave-riding. Life at the retreat is a celebration, exploration and preservation of the sacred wisdom that yoga and surfing have to teach us about ourselves and the world around us. The commune is home to the island’s only yoga center, Yoga Dojo, and Kali Ma Cafe, a plant-based kitchen and restaurant. 

    The rooms are single, double or triple occupancy, with mosquito net, ceiling fans, side tables and dresser. The rooms are single-sex and there are mixed rooms with shared toilets & showers. The accommodation is beautifully designed around nature, tranquil, spacious and relaxing.
