Do you need opportunities for reflection, to connect with a simpler way of living and a break from the modern lifestyle?
Are you looking for self-development and growth?
Then this 4 week training program will help you immensely.

The first week is the 7 day Explore Your Self retreat, which offers an introduction to a yogic lifestyle.
