Yoga Retreat -

A weekend yoga retreat with Johanna van Stratum

About the Retreat

Are you needing time away and a rejuvenation from your busy life and daily routine?
Do you need a place where you can search inwards rather than outwards for your sense of meaning and happiness?
Do you want some time to gather together All aspects of yourself without the pressure from outside influences?
Then come and join me for two days at a beautiful, peaceful retreat centre situated in Peria in the Far North. I am offering a gentle Hatha Yoga retreat which will incorporate Yoga asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and meditation for your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

“Living with a relaxed mind and body is our natural state”

The Ultimate Purpose of Asana and Pranayama is to strengthen and purify the nerve channels, particularly the spinal cord, so that prana, your life force/vital energy can flow freely.
Pranayama calms steadies and clears the mind. It also nourishes and strengthens the physical body and is the link between the physical and mental aspects.
Asana are the postures – they work on all systems of the body creating suppleness and lubrication of the spine, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons. They improve circulation. Strengthen and tone the muscles, glands and internal organs. Which releases tension, increasing flexibility.
Meditation is a deep state of consciousness where there is no external physical awareness of time and space. Only a continuous flow of the divine infinite awareness of the present moment. The mind will naturally go into a state of meditation when it becomes one pointed and steady. You will achieve mental peace and clarity beyond normal awareness.
Yoga Nidra is a state of dynamic sleep, a deep relaxation with conscious awareness. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental & emotional relaxation

What you will learn on this retreat:

  • Experiential learning of yoga practices that can be taken into daily life, with the guidance of an experienced teacher
  • A chance to relax your body and mind, slow down and breathe easier
  • Improved sense of wellbeing


This retreat is suitable for:

  • Beginners with no yoga experience, interested but not quite knowing where to start.
  • Experienced practitioners that understand the freshness and peace and openness of the “beginners mind”.
  • Anyone wanting to revitalise and replenish their well-being, be in good company and broaden their current routine
