This Yoga of the Planets retreat will focus on the vedic cosmology of mantra, yantra and tantra within the context of the celestial planetary forces embodied in our Personality and Being in the world co-creating our reality in accordance with our karma and free will.
The Bromley Retreat Center is a family home making it a private, safe environment to open up to such important, life changing, knowledge and work. Perched high in the rolling green hills of the parish of St. Ann, above the town of Ocho Rios, commanding sweeping views, here you will experience rural Jamaica few get to see. You will taste authentic country life and feel the vibrant rhythms of this unique island.
Bromley's expansive indoor and outdoor living areas and extensive grounds make it an ideal retreat destination where one can take time out from everyday life and be inspired and rejuvenated. Bromley's beauty and this retreat's unique, comprehensive program through which you will learn the appropriate asana, nutrition, mantra and yantra to enhance your reality and destiny in the full lineage wisdom of ancient yoga.
We will be hosted by Alex and Johnathan Edward's, the villa's owners, who have opened their home and can facilitate a truly magical experience. Their unique knowledge of the island and local connections will give us the opportunity to visit stunning, private beaches, to have afternoon tea at a local artist's home where we can visit her gallery and then walk to the head waters of the White River where we will bathe in the pure, mineral rich waters. Meals will be prepared with fresh, local and organic when ever possible produce and served either on the breezy verandah or in the formal dining room. And on our final night, we will even be treated to an evening of traditional Nyabingi (local Rasta) Drummers and Dancers.
