Yoga Retreats

In November 2016, we hosted our first yoga and meditation retreat for 25 people at Shiva Ashram Brasil in Petrópolis. In 2017, due to high increase in the number of students, we organized 2 retreats for 25 people each. To cover transportation, food, and accommodation costs, each student paid partially to attend the event, and we sold products, such as, eye pillows, to fund the first year retreat; and shirts, together with a collective financing campaign, to fund second year retreats. During the retreats, not only do we offer practice of different yoga styles and meditation, we also organize processes of interaction, workshops, and walking meditation sessions outdoors. Similarly, we discuss mindful eating into detail and foster healthier habits.
