Living Ayurveda Retreat
Shambala Margaret River
Unplug and take a sacred pause to reconnect to your self, nourish your soul and return into ease and flow as your baseline state walking through life.
Living Ayurveda Retreats at Shambala Margaret River are a nourishing invitation to exhale and reconnect, deeply and intimately, with your body, being and unique nature, and access your innate wisdom and guidance within. These safely and intentionally held containers in nature offer you a visceral experience of inner harmony and how life can feel when meeting it from your centre - a calm, clear and balanced place, - an open heart, and feet rooted firmly in the earth.
the art of thriving.
Ayurveda is the science and art of life and accessing human potential, which centers around cultivating balance, as well as true joy and pleasure through conscious living in synergy with nature’s rhythms and embodied presence.
It presents a way of life, shared via timeless and time-proven wisdom that does not only form the root of our modern medicine systems but is a remembering of our own true nature and birthright – thriving. Which is accessible to everyone.
All we need to remember, is the willingness to look inside and become present, just as we are.
The intention of our Retreats is to be living Ayurveda - to embody energetics and natural law to forge a tailored-to-us pathway to our own personal thriving, based on our bio-individuality: the very unique make-up and requirements of each of us as individuals, that's the reason behind a thing being medicine for one, and poison for another being.
Ayurveda understands that there are no cookie-cutter silver bullets applicable to everyone and rather specializes in providing a practical, intuitive avenue of self-healing and self-empowerment to folks, by reconnecting them with their body's innate intelligence.

Since Ayurveda is a nature-based science, we cycle with nature’s different seasons. Hence, each retreat is seasonal, as well as informed by the groups’ energetics and needs and thereby no two retreats are ever the same.
In order to make the container most impactful and experiential for each group, we ask each participant to go through our free Ayurveda Foundations Mini-Course prior to the retreat – which also explores your unique mind-body constitution and sets the stage for Ayurvedic self-inquiry – as well as a personal intake form as part of the booking process, so we can tailor workshop topics to the group.
