Yoga retreat with Tashi Dawa

Retreat details

Moving the body with awareness and experiencing the rhythmic breath allows us to move into a state of ease, space and a willingness to surrender. We naturally release from tension as we witness the transformation of doubt, agitation and stagnant energy when we embrace yoga as a life practice. This retreat will focus on how we can use our yoga practice to expand our centre, to live with steady ease, to create the platform for more skillful action in all aspects of our life. Drawing on philosophy, nature, creativity and human experience Tashi encourages the group to creatively explore their experience of yoga.

Born on the east coast of Australia, Tashi lives for adventure, love & bliss in equal measures. She travels regularly to Australia, Asia and Europe involved in yoga and creative arts and her interest in dance, arts and theatre have been easily supported by her daily practice of yoga. She firmly believes that a balanced and joyful life is achievable through the effortless effort afforded by a regular yoga practice; peace and happiness arise naturally by living creatively with a willingness to explore and witness the body/mind in the present moment.

Tashidawa is passionate to share her knowledge of yoga and her students agree that it comes as naturally and easily as the river to an ocean. Her classes are creative, sensitive and enjoyable as she invites students to practice a gentle yet invigorating vinyasa flow guided by the dynamic yoga training method.
