If you are intending to come for the weekend why not come early to join our weekly Devi Havan ceremony starting at 4pm.


The Yantras of the Tattwas: The Visual Forms of the Elements - 01-03 May

(Starts 4pm Friday with the Devi Havan to 3pm Sunday - view arrival time options)
with, one of our most senior teachers, Swami Sumitrananda

The course will explore theory and discussion around different mediums of elemental practice. It includes participation in the ashram routine as part of sustainment of energy (prana) and the balance of well-being.

By the end of this weekend you will gain a solid foundation for a yogic practice involving the visual, and sound forms of the five primordial elements (tattwas) of nature: earth, fire, wind, water, and ether.

Mangrove Yoga Ashram is the largest yoga retreat centre in the southern hemisphere and has been a teaching centre for 40 years

To physically retreat means to take a step back or withdraw, and a place of retreat is a place of seclusion, shelter or privacy. People have always enjoyed travelling to beautiful locations to 'get away from it all'. Packing the essentials and being away from home and our daily routines encourages us to focus on ourselves and recharge.

A holiday and a spiritual retreat are two different things. Holidays are temporary distractions from our responsibilities and routines, and any sense of peace and quiet we may achieve can be quickly eroded when we get back behind the desk, on the phone, in front of the television or in the middle of traffic. A spiritual retreat is a valuable experience where genuine restoration is achieved. This is possible because we are not simply relaxing or forgetting but exploring and practising the methods needed to lead healthy, balanced lives. It is a time to become reacquainted with our inner selves.

We want to awaken everything yet remain the same outside, without any change. If you want to take a bath or jump in the river but do not want to get wet, it is not going to be possible.
