THE HERO'S JOURNEY

Reclaim your healthy power as a 21st century man.

Join us for 7 magical days and nights December 28th – January 4th to practice yoga in one of the most captivating places in the world. This men's yoga retreat is a journey of discovery for the Conscious Man - incorporating strength, balance and flexibility - stimulating the mind and restoring the body.

Yoga4men is a style focusing specifically on the male body and targeting common areas of tension - shoulders, hips and hamstrings. It's a balance of playful discovery, mindfulness, challenging physical practice and inspiring philosophy.

Every day will be a garland of practices, including 2 Asana classes, pranayama and meditation to re-ignite the passions in your life. RAD KAIM will offer sessions of combined asana and transpersonal work with the opportunity for men to gather in the company of other men in spiritual practice.

The yoga4men community embraces heart-centered yogis from around the world. Our tribe is growing year after year, welcoming those who are ready to shine their light in the world. The HERO's JOURNEY is  life affirming event, honoring the best in what we men have to offer.

To begin on the path of the hero’s journey we must reconnect the heart to the head so we can start living the authentic Selves. VULNERABILITY  feels scary, hard and dangerous. The most common misconception about vulnerability is that it is the same as weakness and NOBODY wants to be perceived as weak. For men in particular, weakness is considered the cardinal sin of manhood so men often have a hard time being vulnurable. By facing our insecurities we begin our own healing process - we heal our wounds and confront our past. We learn to see our masculinity in a different way - trying to become more of a human being and less constrained by who we thought we should be.

Go on an adventure!

  • You'll discover your unique connection to manhood, explore a new way of understanding masculinity, and step fully into the man you envision yourself to be.
  • Break out the systems of emotional constriction that leads to living a live of desperation , insecurities, depression or substance abuse.
  • Learn how to stay true to who you are and make profound choices about what you want to keep, what you want to expand, and what you want to let go of.

This retreat will be a gentle introduction to one of the most important texts in yoga philosophy - BHAGAVAGITA - the quest for personal mastery and renunciation of the ego, the victory of light over the dark, and ultimate (re)-union with the Source within.

wonderful yoga sanctuary •••••

“I had an incredible experience at the yoga house for 3 weeks! The place is gorgeous, the garden and the pool are beautiful! The food was delicious and the location of the house was secluded enough but also close enough to discover the rest of the island. Thanks again xx" John 38 – US

Ommm all the way •••••
