Away from the distractions of work and home, there is time to devote yourself to studying alignment, to chanting, to flowing dynamically or to just sitting still in meditation. Some retreats last just a weekend; others longer. They are hosted in stately homes in the English countryside, in Mediterranean beach houses, or eco-lodges in the foothills of Indian mountains.
