In an increasingly busy world, a physical sense of spaciousness is necessary to help find clarity and peace of mind. Lokya Yoga offers immersive retreat programmes that aim to reinvigorate this sense of space in both the body and mind to restore necessary balance on all levels.
Alongside the yoga practice, all retreats aim to offer various therapies such as massage, Thai yoga massage and yoga therapy to ease away stresses and tensions, leaving you feeling relaxed and calm.
On some retreats, Mauna (Silence) is practised. Our minds can be full of noise; through the control of speech, we can cultivate a sense of reflection, be more mindful, and find stillness & peace by allowing ourselves to tune in to our ‘innermost voice’.
It is not lost on me that; organising and hosting retreats around the world has an impact on the environment. I select an environmental, social justice cause, or charity local to the area we visit and offer help in raising awareness, active help (planting, building, etc.) and give 10% of profits per retreat to that cause.
At the core of Lokya Retreats is a respect for the environment and, where possible:
We use cleaning products that create as little as possible negative impact on the environment.
We connect with local producers, growers, and suppliers to provide nutritious meals to support your health and the local community's health.
We ask venues to recycle; glass, plastics, food/green waste, paper, and cardboard. Your participation in this recycling effort is just as important.
We ask everyone on retreat to use toiletries that are sympathetic to the environment and ethical to use.
My week with Toni in Corfu was truly amazing. Toni’s teaching style ticked all my boxes, thorough, professional and expertly executed. Her super sense of humour and personality made me feel at ease. The balance was perfect - one gained a sense of spirituality and grounding.
I enjoyed my week so much that I have signed up to do a teacher training course, under Toni’s guidance.
