Sacarest Mindfulness based Yoga Retreats

Sudaka and Sadhita are offering two distinct meditation and yoga retreats in the wonderfully remote and rugged Sacarest Retreat Centre. Sacarest is situated a few kilometres back from the Alicante coast. Sacarest is a Retreat Centre run by Dolf and Anne (Dutch and German).

More than just a yoga retreat, Sudaka and Sadhita introduce gradually practices from the Hatha yoga tradition, as well as core Buddhist teachings. A typical day involves a morning double session of meditation then yoga. In the afternoon we offer a second session of more recuperative yoga or breath-work. We present themes related to mindfulness, meditation, yoga and Buddhism. 

We ask all participants to agree and assent to the following;

1. A minimum of 6 months regular meditation practice. 
2. To follow the programme and practice the silence as fully as possible. 
3. To stay for the duration of the retreat. (No day trips out)
4. Please note Sacarest is not a holiday venue. There is no swimming pool. Just vast beautiful silence, forests, 
mountains and sky. We attempt to provide all the conditions necessary to deepen your meditation and yoga practice. 

If you fancy the beach please arrange to stay on the coast a few days before or after your retreat.
We recommend Hostal Mercat in Villajoyosa. 

The Dana economy :: contribution based approach

What does this mean and why are we running our retreat in this way?

This way of running our retreats in this consumerist age is a radical approach. We want to break out of a conventional way of thinking about paying for what you receive and enter into a more profound and meaningful relationship with our students.

We will give you our time, energy and many years experience of doing and guiding retreat practice as well as many years experience teaching yoga. We invite you to give generously based on your economic capacity and bearing in mind that these retreats help to support us, Sadhita and Sudaka in their Dharma and yoga teaching work, as well as helping to maintain and develop Sacarest and the running costs of the retreat.
