Join this retreat to experience the ancient science and practice that will allow you to find deep peace, harmony, and union within your ourselves and in all your relations; yoga. As you develop your practice, you will discover how the yoga enables you to see clearly from within and see the patterns and conditions that possibly block your feeling of completeness and make you feel separated. You will move from the gross to the subtle to purify and balance as you practice.
For this retreat, you will stay in a shared room. The palm huts made of wood at Comunidad Om Shanti are rustic and simple and have beds with sheets, pillows, mosquito nets, a wardrobe, a table and a chair, fans, and carpets. Please do not expect any luxury.
Comunidad can accommodate up to 10 guests sharing two bathrooms, two toilets, a meditation shala with mosquito net, a kitchen, a study room, and a massage room. The place also have a very big garden with a biodiversity of fruits, flower trees, and even a river during the rainy season.
During this course, you will follow the instructions of sage Patanjali who guides you from the gross to the subtle. Therefore, you practice first asana and ethical living (yama and niyama) to have a good foundation for the higher practices of yoga and meditation. The experience of union is a culmination of this practice and is in Vedanta philosophy described as satchitananada (truth, consciousness, and bliss).
The ancient system of yoga has developed many tools, which work on all layers: physical, energetic, mental, emotion, and spiritual. In the course, you will include many of these tools, including Karma yoga (service trough work and action), asana (posture), pranayama (control and expansion of the vital energy), relaxation, concentration, Kriya yoga, and meditation. The main purpose of Hatha yoga is to purify and balance the opposing energies in the body.
This retreat is based on the holistic understanding of yoga and is for people who feel the call to take a deeper dive into the subtle layers of the self through yoga and experience the bliss of being. On the way to this pure state of being, you might also encounter certain patterns or blockages that prevent you of feeling free and happy. If you are honest, all of you will probably sometimes experience some struggle in life, as well. This is just an invitation of life to transform and evolve.
This workshop aims at recognizing and transforming these patterns in order to know and liberate yourself. One of the tools for this transformation is in Mexico the sweat lodge. You will combine a little bit of these ancient Mexican traditions with your yogic journey.
Kriya yoga combines sitting asanas with pranayama and mudras. Therefore, a basic experience of Hatha yoga techniques is recommended. But, a deep interest to know yourself, be in service, and connect with your true essence will be sufficient. You are the universe, perfection in all direction. It is just up to you to wake up from your dream, know thyself, and re-unite.
This retreat also included three extra nights of accommodation as a gift from Comunidad Om Shanti so you can completely enjoy the new moon ritual. This means that if you wish to stay three more nights after the departure day, you will not have to make any extra payments.
The purpose of Om Shanti is to combine yoga with community living and to be a platform for all work that is shared with love for the benefit of all beings. They seek to find balance on all levels, share this from their heart with all their brothers and sisters, and keep themselves open to keep on learning and developing together. Therefore, you can expect a community based experience in Om Shanti.

This retreat will take place at Comunidad Om Shanti in Oaxaca, Mexico. Comunidad Om Shanti is located in the beautiful South Pacific Coast of Mexico in a very small rural village called Mazunte. Mazunte is a very special village because of its contrast in the beauty of the sea, the mountains, the nature, the stars. However on the other hand, since it is located in a rural area, it does not have the same comfort and commodities than in a city.
Mazunte does not have garbage truck recollection. They need to separate the garbage to treat, compost it, and so on. This is very important point to understand that you are coming to a humble area and a humble community.
