Siargao Island Yoga Retreat 5 – 14 July, 2020
I am hosting a wellness retreat on Siargao Island, Philippines and would love you to come!
The remarkable shape of the ocean bed just off the coast of Siargao makes it unique to the other seven thousand islands known collectively as the Philippines.
Nestled within 437 sq. km are natural sites one would otherwise travel multiple islands to see. It holds the region’s second largest mangroves: a forest guarding the waterways to the most remote and idyllic fishing villages and secret lagoons. Many times, the feeling is that one has discovered the furthest end of the earth. It is our teachers’ favourite place to practice outdoors, floating above turquoise waters and surrounded by limestone cliffs.
Siargao is still the jungle it was when the retreat’s founders first arrived almost a decade ago. Its waterfalls, rock pools, caves, underwater caves, dive sites— its wild and infinite vistas are guardians of the islanders’ way of life.
Surrounded by majestic land formations and the powerful ocean, the islanders are in constant commune with the essence, spirit and source animating life. Expressed in their ways, the order of their days, and their language, the initial experience of coming in contact with Nature—the mind immediately silenced and the ego dissolved into the infinity that her beauty suggests—is constant for the people of Siargao and an experience they so willingly share with the world outside theirs.
It is this sacred combination of being in nature and witness to the Filipinos’ unfathomable capacity for unconditioned joy and open-heartedness that makes Siargao the perfect place for a Yoga immersion.
