about the retreat

Join us in the beautiful Shala at Yoga Land for ‘8 Limbs,’ an exploration into the foundational process of yoga, set in the Goan jungle.

In a world where we are asked to conform to expectations and standards we have not necessarily chosen, we can end up confused about our direction, our identity and purpose. The 8 Limbs of yoga offers a blueprint through which we are invited to check in with ourselves on every level.

Yoko and Sha Sha invite you to use this time as an opportunity to reintegrate and revitalise yourself through a subtle strong, loving and sometimes challenging yoga practice.
