What happiness to play in bodily movement
With the power aroused by Yoga.
To jump and run, to dance and leap, is more joyful still.

“I would thoroughly recommend a weeks retreat at Dhanokosa, a fantastic opportunity to slow down, reflect and unwind. As a first timer to retreats I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as I arrived I felt welcome and quickly settled in. What’s fantastic about the retreat is having a whole week to relax, practice yoga and meditation with like minded people. Whilst Manjunaga’s yoga was suitable for beginners, it also offered enough of a challenge for individuals who had been practicing regularly.

Dhanokosa looks over Loch Voil and I had plenty of time to explore the beautiful surroundings, dip my toe into the loch and walk the surrounding hills.

After a weeks retreat at Dhanakosa I felt revived mentally and physically.”
