Classes & Activities in the Retreat:

1) Pranayama – Proper Breathing
Pranayama is the ancient science of controlling the breath.  Our breath is the source of our “prana” or our life force. Learn the practice of pranayama and how to apply it to your daily practice of yoga and overall well-being.
2) Guided Meditation
Learn the practice of meditation. If you haven’t tried this, this is a good opportunity for you to start. We’ll begin with pranayama and you will be guided step-by-step how to begin, relax and surrender to the practice.  This will help you establish the tone of your day with a clear, happy and open mind.
3) Yoga Classes
The yoga classes will be taught in traditional Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Flow.  We will let you experience these two types of yoga style for a dynamic, fun and challenging practice.
4) SUP Yoga Classes
Adding the element of water into your yoga practice brings out new and fun challenges worth trying. It’s novelty gives a unique sense of calm being outdoors in nature.  This is good for beginners and non-beginners to SUPYoga in which we will ensure a safe and mindful practice.
5) Karma Yoga – Immersion with the Local Community
Karma Yoga means “selfless service.” In this practice, we will open our hearts and be of service to others.  There is nothing more fulfilling in life than giving. Thus, we will have an outreach program with the chilidren in the local village. You may bring used clothes, toys, books or anything you wish to share to give to the community.
6) Firefly or Fullmoon SUP Tour
As the night unfolds, a magical place comes alive.  Hundreds of fireflies light up at night in their mother tree. The only way to see this is by SUPing your way in the river. Our Firefly SUP Tour takes you on this special place in the night. This takes about 2 hours of leisure paddling in the calm waters of the Loboc River.
7) Bohol Heritage Land Tour
Bohol is indeed a bountiful island when it comes to its natural treasures. When in Bohol, you must definitely see the spectacular Chocolate Hills, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and of course, the Philippine Tarsier which is the smallest primate in the world.  Aside from these, we will visit other highlight spots of Bohol..
8) Pamilacan Island Beach Day
One must also spend a day to relax at the white sand beach of Bohol. We depart early morning to catch the dolphins and maybe even spot some whalesharks and pilot whales if we are lucky! We’ll swim and snorkel in a marine sanctuary and finally relax and have lunch on a secluded beach.
9) 1-Hour Hilot Massage
A traditional Filipino healing massage is the best type of massage to have after doing some physical activity.  This type of massage is good for releasing tension in the muscles, calms the nerves and neutralizes energy points in the body. It is performed by a “Manghihilot” (a healer)  when one feels a little under the weather or has a slight pain in the body caused by stress or minor accidents. You can book this full body massage anytime during your free time at the retreat.
