Mangrove Yoga Ashram is the largest yoga retreat centre in the southern hemisphere and has been a teaching centre for nearly 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, however. 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 (forgetting) but exploring and practising the methods needed to lead healthy, balanced lives. It is a time to become reacquainted with our inner selves.

The effort to come to a balanced state of mind is yoga.
