We strongly believe that we are all here to create and share with the world our individual gifts and talents. And we believe the process of creation should be joyful and fun which is exactly what we want to share with our retreat guests. Sure we all have mental roadblocks and fears that pop up to scare us into thinking we can’t manifest what we truly want. But with commitment and the right internal and external resources, there can also be an ease and grace moving through our fears.
There is no better feeling than being connected to your higher purpose, making it manifest, and sharing it with the world as an act of service. Each one of us has so many unique & incredible gifts to offer. If only we could channel our energy towards aligned creation, our world would be a much better place to live in.
We are excited to bring you our traveller testimony.
This edition's blog guest is Kirsty from London. Kirsty is an active volunteer in her community. She loves yoga, travel, art, good food. We were thrilled to get her take on what it's like to experience a YUSUTRA retreat from her perspective.
"I took a gamble when I booked this retreat as I chanced upon it by accident one lunchtime when searching for a last minute " feel good" getaway. It turned out that I stumbled on a real gem. The retreat had an organic feel to it in that if there was a need to change the schedule according to how the group was feeling or the weather, they went with the flow. This intuitive knack of knowing when to change things up to keep everyone happy made for a truly bespoke experience. The venue was perfect – peaceful, clean and plenty of space to take time out if you wanted alone time or lots of comfy communal areas to natter and bond with your fellow retreaters. The food was fresh and delicious and staff really friendly and discreet.This retreat really stood out for me as time to step back, think and feel healthy but not take it all too seriously. If you’re looking to get your mojo back, kick start getting healthy, re-connect with yourself or simply want to relax and have fun in a beautiful place and meet great people. I strongly recommend you get booking!"
"I have made relationship with people I would never come across in other areas of life, I have got into giving myself the space and time to explore things I just haven’t had time to explore personally, spiritually. I’ve enjoyed every moment I’ve been here and slept like a baby which I don’t normally do"
"Sometimes when I go on holidays it’s about you know traveling and worrying about getting places, being on time and being responsible for myself and I can just layback Corinne took care of me. It’s amazing. I’ve never been able to holiday like this, to take care of my body and be taken care by someone else at the same time".
"I can’t wait to do another retreat, I am already started talking about when and where".
"It’s not just yoga or hanging out in a beach someplace, you get to go on these cool things"
"Yoga here unlike my normal routine is like night and day, so focus and so centered"
"I like to think of yoga retreats like adult summer camps, everybody is doing something that they love to do, there is a common denominator of yoga, a common denominator of wonderful setting and great food and really nice accommodations and there is a sense of community".
"I’ve never been on a yoga retreat but this is going to change because this has been an amazing thing I’ve done in my whole life".
One flip-flop at a time...
Scattered across the workshop floor is a rainbow of color. Bright reds and yellows mix with greens and purples, while shavings of bright blue drop to the ground from a sculptor’s hands. This is the carving room of Ocean Sole, a Nairobi-based recycling business that transforms marine debris into works of art
So much touch...
Just take a moment to focus mindfully on your favourite ‘touch’ sensation…. is it warm sunshine on bare arms, legs and face, or cool water refreshing and limpid. Maybe massage is your thing, in which case, a therapeutic treatment with warm, fragrant oils being teased and eased into the skin will induce a deep sense of well-being and invoke the relaxation response. #yusutrawellness

Malika the amazingly talented henna tatoo artist. The intricate designs of her tattoos are truly beautiful. Henna is highly regarded in Ayurvedic medicine for its ability to eliminate infection, impurities and soothing the stomach. The fragrant white blooms of the henna plant are even used to make perfume. Henna tattoos are created in a number of shapes and symbols, and many Morrocan women prefer henna flower designs for the feminine, delicate look of the tattoos. Which one will you choose? #yusutrawellness
