Why a Yoga Retreat?

When we leave our regular routine and explore new places or spend time with new people, it can give us a different perspective and open us to internal shifts that we can take back to our daily life.

We’ll be spending the weekend tuning into our internal worlds and using yogic practices to expand our own personal authenticity. Join your regular Kanuka Yoga teachers as we explore more into the practice of yoga.
