A Himalayan Retreat
with Lucybloom and Uma
October 28 - November 7, 2024
Embody Light. Embrace Tradition.


Join us this Diwali for a 10 day retreat, with 8 nights at the Mirage retreat centre in Andretta followed by 2 nights in the mountain villages above Dharamshala.

Nestled amidst the timeless beauty of the majestic Himalayas, we invite you to embark on a profound journey into the heart of Yoga's ancient roots.

Diwali is India's most shining celebration of the year, known as the festival of lights. On this retreat, amidst the flickering glow of lamps and ritual sounds, you can experience of the profound symbolism of this ancient festival; the victory of light over darkness.

In addition to festive gatherings, our retreat provides a space for contemplation and discussion, where you can explore and deepen your understanding of yogic themes with like-minded individuals and experienced teachers.

Our retreat offers a unique opportunity to delve deep into the sacred traditions of Yoga, exploring its essence through a rich tapestry of experiences and practices. From traditional Tantric rituals to soul-stirring adventures to sacred temples, as well as daily deep Yoga practices, every aspect of our program is designed to immerse you in the transformative power of Yogic wisdom.

Join us on this journey of self-discovery and spiritual renewal, as we awaken through the timeless teachings of Yoga.
