YAMA adventure & intensive immersion retreats are designed to offer diverse, mindful, globe-trotting experiences. Each trip is unique, wild and wonderful but captures this common theme of celebrating life in colour through dance, arts, music, yoga, and connection with ourselves, nature and others. We are not just a yoga retreat! Our element of difference is that we provide a range of adventure activities, movement styles, breathwork and arts.
YAMA trips are about having fun, exploring our inner child, dancing, playing, and connecting with our inner and outer worlds. Find your freedom and travel with like-minded soon-to-be lifelong friends.
Our trips are LGBT & gender-inclusive. The theme we wish to encapsulate is this feeling of being at a mini-festival, a sense of freedom, openness and connectedness. If you are free-spirited and love yoga, arts, movement and adventure, then you are perfect for our trips! In saying this, the average age of our groups is 20-50 years old. Most, but not all of our trips are moderately physically demanding (trip dependant) and may require some background in hiking, movement or sports. However, we encourage anyone open to the challenge to come along. If you believe you can do it, then you can!
