7-Day Just Breathe Yoga & Meditation Retreat - a Journey of the Spirit, Himalayas

Imagine looking at acres and acres of lush Himalayan forest, set against the backdrop of the peaks of Nanda Devi and Trishul. The air is crisp and cool, with a delicate mist that is so fresh and cleansing, that your soul feels alive and happy.

You soak in the sacred energies and spiritual vibrations of the enchanting and majestic Himalayas - the abode of the mighty Lord Shiva, the Supreme Lord of Yoga, whose ancient practice has been traced back to the Inca Civilization.

Standing here, you feel the magical and mysterious energies of the universe, and you can sense its unseen intelligence. Your strong inner urge to connect with this greater intelligence, surfaces again.

What you will experience

Yoga Asana - Balance. Ground. Align.

Your body opens, strengthens and energies begin to flow. You learn to re-align your mind, your body, and your soul. Soon, the mental noise begins to fade away. And you feel what it means to be present and awake.

In the stillness of nature, you hear your soft inner voice - your inner knowing. You are filled with a sense of wellbeing and openness.

You leave the mat to become one with nature, ready to experience an outdoor adventure. You learn to be present, to trust, and to feel the vast expanse of who you really are, one with nature and the sacred and subtle energies of the universe.

Pranayama & Meditation - Breathe. Relax. Focus

You learn to connect with your vital life force that is the very essence of your being. You learn to relax the mind, and to develop a more mindful state of being, becoming present to everything within you and around you.

As your mind learns to relax and focus, you move your gaze inwards to connect with your inner self. You experience the vast essence of who you truly are. You realize you are not an isolated being, but feel the interconnectedness to everything around you.

Hiking - Explore. Expand. Evolve.

You enjoy magical hikes through the lush Himalayan forest, to the sacred Shiva Temple, and enjoy fabulous bird watching opportunities.

You fully immerse yourself in these exquisite surroundings, and you feel your soul come alive! You expand well beyond your perceived limitations, connecting with the subtle and magical energies of the universe.

You learn to trust yourself and to surrender to the process that is unfolding.

Living Yoga Course - Inquire. Connect. Aspire.

You learn about the ancient science behind the practice. You discover how to implement this ancient wisdom to yourself and to your daily life.

You develop a deeper understanding of your mind, and how to work with its limitations and to go beyond the incessant noise.

As this process unfolds, you feel the most alive you have ever been in years. Inspired, you create a new vision for yourself and your dreams, forming a path for yourself that feels much more aligned with your soul.

You reclaim your CONFIDENCE, your CLARITY, your IDENTITY, and your VISION.

Food - Replenish. Rejuvenate. Energize.

You enjoy delicious cuisine cooked with Ayurvedic ingredients to nourish your soul. We take the practice off the mat and into the kitchen, nourishing your slowly evolving balanced mind and body.

Cost Details 

This Retreat can be customised to fit group needs, and can also be run on any other dates for groups of 10 persons or more. The Retreats are led by a team of professionals, dedicated to excellence, and guiding participants through a life-transforming experience of self-discovery and personal growth.


Radhika Vachani is an Author, a Motivational Speaker and also the Founder of Yogacara Healing Arts.

A devoted student of the Iyengar School of Yoga for 15+ years, Radhika quit her successful corporate career to start Yogacara in 2010, after having experienced life-transforming changes with the practice of Iyengar Yoga. She began Yogacara with the intention of enhancing human wellness and spreading the authentic practices of Yoga and Ayurveda.

The Living Yoga and Meditation Retreats are a life transforming experience that takes a student through fundamental aspects of both the physical, and also the life practice of Yoga. Radhika's teachings are about developing a strong, healthy and alert mind and body, through muscle awakening, body opening and breathing practices. She also supports her students extend their practice beyond the walls of the studio and into daily life, living yoga as a life practice.


The reality is that we experience our entire lives through our minds-all our experiences of pain and pleasure, satisfaction and dissatisfaction stem from right here. If we are to live more happy and fulfilling lives, then we must do what is needed to bring order to our minds, and make it a fit instrument with which to manoeuvre this world.  

In this Retreat, participants will also develop greater knowledge of the Yoga Sutras, the essential instruction behind the practice of Yoga, that describes the power of the human mind as it achieves greater stillness. Students will develop greater awareness of their minds, while also experiencing simple, practical breathing and meditation techniques, if practised daily, will significantly enhance one's ability to be more present and mindful, while learning how to deal with all of life’s circumstances more skillfully. 

The Living Yoga & Meditation Retreats are based on key concepts of Radhika's book, Just Breathe available on Amazon.com.
