THE YAMA EXPERIENCE
Find us on Instagram @YAMAMOVEMENT
The YAMA family warmly invites you to come and connect in nature to have a therapeutic experience filled with workshops, adventure, food, sharing, co-creation, relaxation, love and play. Set in some of the world’s most exotic locations. Welcome to paradise, Welcome to YAMA
WHAT TO EXPECT
The YAMA experiences are adventurous, mindful, globe-trotting boutique retreats. Each trip is unique, wild and wonderful and captures this common theme of celebrating life in colour through dance, arts, music, yoga, and connection with ourselves and others while exploring the raw elements of nature. We are not just a yoga retreat! Our feature of difference is that we provide a range of adventure activities, movement styles, breathwork and arts. So flow with life, 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 festive vibes, a sense of freedom, openness and connectedness. Suppose you are free-spirited, fun and fabulous. Then you are perfect for our trips!
The average age of our groups is 20-55 years old. However, you are only as old as you act :). Most, but not all, of our trips are physically demanding (trip dependent) and may require a moderate fitness level. However, we encourage anyone open to the challenge to come along. If you believe you can do it, then you can!
Let us take you on a life-changing, soul-soothing journey. Learn, live and experience the local culture and native arts while establishing techniques to create inner peace and self-awareness skills to integrate you into life back home.
Anyone may be a part of our community. No prerequisites exist for participating as long as you act with integrity, care and respect.
- SHARING, GIFTING & PLAY
We encourage you to share your unique gift at this gathering. YAMA is a space to express yourself through what brings you joy. What you share could be everything and anything from a hugging workshop to music, games, play, arts, singing, creativity, culinary, performance and dance. Shine through sharing. It’s great for the soul.
- SELF EXPRESSION
Radical self-expression is our thang – dressing up in exotic locations and taking epic misfit shots. Be outrageous. The more outrageous, the better. Everyone is free to be whoever they want as long as it doesn’t harm others and the environment. We recommend (glitter-free) recycled or second-hand fashion.
Leave no trace. Just make memories. We are passionate about the natural world, and as visitors, we are responsible for keeping it clean. YAMA fam love a beach clean! It’s SEXY! When our community gets involved. We are working with Climate Force and Reforest Now to give back to the earth and our feathered, furry and scaly friends.
Learning should be fun. There are many opportunities to learn on a YAMA experience, whether it be from the community gifting or through our professional, fun young facilitators. Some of our trips also offer intensive learning and certifications (trip dependent). All our retreats are unique and provide different opportunities for self-development and growth on a physical and mental level.
Ensure you have all the items you’ll need during the entire retreat. For guidance, we will provide a packing list for each experience. So that you dont forget your toothbrush or your passport 😉
We can’t wait to create something beautiful with you.
