Danika is a teacher in the classic tradition, trained in the complementary arts of hatha yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, and astrology.
Her teaching is restorative and healing, emphasizing the development of personal practice unique to each person’s soul journey.
The holistic principles of yoga, Ayurveda, and astrology teach that the universe and each of us – is composed of five subtle elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Understanding these elements and their interactions helps us regain and maintain health, balance, and vitality.
In this rejuvenating and restorative yoga retreat, we explore and experience the joy of these subtle energies within us. Through asana, meditation, and discussion, we restore ourselves with a focus on breath awareness, easy movement, and gentle postures supported by props (blocks, blankets, and bolsters), which encourage opening and release.
Shanti, is a Sanskrit word that means peace. A sanctuary where guests can pause, reflect, and connect in community with kindred spirits.
Shanti’s nurturing atmosphere provides guests with the inspiration to delve deeper into the gift of yoga and the possibilities for transformation and growth.
Savour the opportunity to pause from the ebb and flow of daily life Retreat includes: four restorative yoga classes, five wholesome and delicious meals, accommodation, time to connect with nature and enjoy the infrared sauna.
