Time to retreat inwards and instigate deep rest and a manageable ongoing Self Care Plan.

Time to cleanse, detoxify and realign the body, mind and spirit.

Time to focus solely on yourself for once.

Living in Alignment is about tuning in to a more Vibrant Life

There are all sorts of reasons why you might decide to join a Women’s Wellness Retreat such as this.  

You might be struggling with your health a little.

Or perhaps you just don’t seem to have the energy that you used to.

Maybe you have a specific complaint or have just overcome an illness or a life hurdle that has left you feeling scattered.

Maybe you just need to get away to spend some quiet time by yourself to recalibrate?

Do you find it difficult to make yourself top of your priority list?

Wouldn’t you love to learn the Art of Self Care from the Ancients?

Is Self Care something that you manage to do on a regular basis in order to help manage stress and sound sleep?

Have you had any struggles with your weight or feel like your hormones might be out of balance?

Both Ayurveda & Yoga are holistic health systems that take into account the physical, mental and emotional aspects of each person.

They are powerful systems with definite prescriptions to improve quality of life and an emphasis on preventative medicine.

Ayurvedic doctors are interested in getting to know you as a WHOLE person and uncovering the root cause of your symptoms not just fixing you or giving you any bandaid solutions.

This doesn’t mean to say that you need to have anything WRONG with you in order to come along on this retreat.

In fact for most women it’s more about fine tuning and simply taking the time out for yourself without needing to care for anyone else.

Are you ready to take some serious time out for Self Care?

Hi my name is Belinda O’Dea and I’m a heart-based certified Yoga teacher originally from Australia and currently a citizen of the world.

I’m passionate about Yoga, Travel & Wellness and how getting away for just 10 days can be enough to instigate powerful positive change in your life.

I’m here to offer you the experience of a deep healing immersion that incorporates the wisdom of Ayurveda & Yoga as taught through the tradition of Tantra Yoga. 

I’ve spent several months in this particular Wellness Retreat Centre and can vouch for the transformative power of such a place.

I’m as passionate a student as I am a teacher and I believe that it is essential to practice Ayurveda & Yoga together as methods of Self Care.

As sister sciences Ayurveda & Yoga are powerful tools that encapsulate the Yogic lifestyle.

I see Ayurveda & Yoga as gifts to share the joy and transformation that they have brought to my life.

My love and enthusiasm for India’s spiritual tradition is enhanced by my down-to-earth, easy delivery of ancient philosophy.

This is your personal invitation to be guided through a transformative experience of Spiritual India with grace and ease.

Join me on this holistic health immersion in the majestical mountains of South India.

In 10 Days you will experience the ancient healing art of Ayurveda paired with all of the branches of the tree of Yoga.

Have you always wanted to do a Retreat but never have the time?

On this Wellness Retreat Ayurveda & Yoga will be seamlessly integrated. 

I know that your deep wish is to really spoil yourself without having to feel guilty.

I know that your life is busy and that you can probably only afford a little time off to do this.

I understand that you desire a little taste of India – a chance to dip your toes in and see if you like it?

This is an opportunity to join a group of like-minded women who each have the goal of living well, practicing regular Self Care and finding more peace and lasting happiness.

In 10 days you will experience a perfect blend of support, study, rituals, yoga, meditation, massages and alone time.

You will gain an understanding of the holistic wellbeing that the Yogic lifestyle offers when practiced in harmonious partnership with Ayurveda. 

You will have a chance to be completely spoilt and lovingly cared for as you retreat from life to reconnect, recalibrate and realign your body, mind & spirit.

Do you want to learn how to live in a Yogic way?

Many people practice Yoga but don’t receive the full benefits of the practice due to their lifestyle choices. 

They fall down in one way or another through not understanding the importance of diet, rest, silence and connection to nature. 

The system of Ayurveda offers a blueprint of how to create and maintain perfect balance in your being through simple Self Care techniques. 

Remember you are a human being not a human doing and sometimes it takes a drastic step away from all of the doing to see where your focus could be improved.

In the eyes of Ayurveda & Yoga you are already a perfect Spiritual being that has all of the knowledge and resources within.

Spiritual rituals and practices such as asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra and puja are all tools that will be used to help you remember your perfection and re-align with your highest potential.

It’s all about taking the time out from your regular life to re-align your inner compass so that you can live more FULLY.

Are you interested in discovering the missing piece of the puzzle?

Once you are exposed to Ayurveda & Yoga as one holistic system of health and wellbeing you will understand the piece of the puzzle that has been missing from your practice.

This is a sacred retreat environment built to be at one with nature and help you get to know your own true nature.  

Although this journey is a personal one, you will be supported by other like-minded women, Ayurvedic doctors, expert beauty therapists, Spiritual teachers, lovely retreat staff and me as your devoted facilitator and guide.

You will be held in a sacred container of others, just like you, who wish to experience the healing vibrations of the mountains of South India in a tailored group experience. 

The type of Wellness Retreat that I’m talking about is for those who are ready to use all of the branches of the tree of Yoga to create a life of peace, happiness and abundant vitality.

You are either someone who loves Yoga and would like to continue further down the spiritual path with the help of some healing hands or you can see yourself being THAT person.

Connecting to your True Nature through tuning into your Inner Compass

When was the last time that you went anywhere without your phone?  

How often do you turn off and unplug everything and just sit and be with yourself?

When was the last time that you made yourself the TOP priority?

How much time and effort do you put into preparing delicious, nutritious, organic vegetarian food daily?

Have you ever researched your Ayurvedic constitution and how you could better your diet and lifestyle choices?

Have you ever experienced having your personal physician dispensing advice on your pranayama practice, what mantras you should be chanting and which herbs to use to uplift your spirit?

Practicing Ayurveda & Yoga together will blow your mind – literally!

By the end of the retreat you will walk away feeling lighter, clearer and more aligned with your True Nature than ever before.

Nature is truly our greatest teacher, come and be at one with the rhythms of nature in order to live with greater vitality and gain a deeper understanding of your own true nature.

Let me tell you about my experience of Yoga, Travel & Wellness in India…

I’ve sat with Holy Men and discussed the Bhagavad Gita on the banks of the River Ganges and I’ve been initiated with my personal mantra received from the stars, through the medium of a Vedic Astrologer.

I’ve been told of my dharma and my life’s path, unbeknownst to me, all in the palm of my hand.

I’ve spent 10 day’s in silence experiencing authentic Ashram life.

I’ve meditated in caves and completed lengthy and profound Ayurvedic cleanses to align my body, mind and spirit.

These are some of experiences that I wish to share with you.

I want you to fall deeply and passionately in love with your own sense of spirit.

To re-connect with source and the wellspring of your innate power; a place of boundless support, love and joy.

To understand the practice of yoga in it’s entirety, ancient rituals and all.

To be inspired by the richness and depth of the tradition and to ground those experiences in your modern life.

This is your opportunity to experience the abundant gifts of Divine Mother India in a way that is nourishing and enjoyable.
