Karma Yoga Retreat in Snowdonia - Nov 2020
Karma Yoga is the Yoga of Action. The kind of action that is focused on giving back to the community and each other in the best possible way.
Karma Yoga Retreats are run as part of the Dru Volunteer Programme. They are a fantastic way to experience teamwork by working on different projects together, such as cooking, gardening, painting, cleaning, building, etc. Simultaneously, you practice and learn about yoga and meditation in its many aspects.
Karma Yoga, as stated in the Bhagavad Gita, is often understood and translated as the yoga of selfless service, or as the means of achieving freedom through action. It purifies the heart and mind by inviting you to act selflessly, without thought of gain or reward.
Possible Karma Yoga activities will be:-
- light maintenance/building work;
- deep cleaning;
- website / IT support.
And there's more ....
We will also make sure that your time here is as nourishing and as rewarding as possible. Therefore we include in your programme sessions like:-
- yoga & relaxation;
- walks and yoga in nature;
- mantra chanting (kirtan);
- Satsang on Bhagavad Gita.
And not to forget - your working environment will be in the midst of the stunning scenery of the Snowdonia National Park, with beautiful walks and time in nature included!

I not only enjoyed it, I loved it! Thank you. It really helped me to feel my core stability muscles. I'm looking forward training them ;-)

Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
