You are invited to join Island Yoga on a life-changing journey this summer as we ascend India’s Himalayan mountains for three exclusive yoga retreats. The peaceful surroundings, stunning scenery and excellent teachers that you enjoy at Island Yoga will be offered with different view – instead of beaches, you will gaze upon snow-capped, soul-stirring mountains and immerse yourself in these sacred lands.
Explore pristine mountain trails, visit holy temples and discover the rich and colourful culture of the local Ladakhi people. Ladakh borders Tibet and is known as the “Land of the Gods.” Resident Island Yoga teachers Veerle Geuens and René Solari have established the only retreat space in this special location – nestled in the heart of the Himalayas at the Togocheepa Eco Hotel – allowing you to experience the beauty and spirituality of the Himalayas in a totally unique way.
After the success of our first Himalayan Retreat in 2018, Veerle and René are back with three different journeys to suit the taste of every yogi, whether you are seeking a physical challenge (hiking), soulful connection (culture) or a journey deep within (meditation).
Each retreat provides 10 days of yoga, meditation, pranayama, mantras, and Tibetan Buddhism practices in the beauty of the Himalayas – and includes delicious vegetarian meals. Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your yoga and meditation practice, utterly refresh body and mind, and create lasting memories.
Step on your mat each morning for yoga and pranayama as the sun rises over the stunning Himalayan mountains. Trek the ancient trails that connect local villages and the valleys brimming with purple flowers. Take time for self-reflection while you absorb the natural beauty and immerse yourself into a daily practice in the Himalayas.
Explore paths and philosophy of Vipassana meditation as you are guided by Tibetan monks chanting. Visit ancient Buddhist monasteries and listen to sacred Tibetan mantras while beautiful prayer flags wave over the high mountain passes. This meditation-focused retreat will provide you with the physical and mental strength to open your heart and mind.
Enjoy the colorful combination of yoga and Ladakh cultural heritage. The Himalaya’s remote location, ancient traditions, unbroken spiritual lineages, and the kindness of the Ladakhi people combine to create a sacred experience. During this cultural immersion, you’ll discover new life perspectives and feel yourself grow off of your mat.
