The Niyama Retreat

Retreat Group in the Namkhan Gardens

Are you a seasoned yogi or yogini wanting to evolve and venture deeper into your established practice? The Niyama Retreat paves the way for you to understand the philosophy behind each practice, the essence of why and how we do the work. Here, amidst the tranquil and scenic landscapes of Luang Prabang, you’ll gain a more profound understanding of your practice—a journey that guides you in exploring new ways to nurture your mind and body through the principles of Niyama. In this enlightening retreat, you’ll discover the art of establishing ‘dinacharya’: the Sanskrit word that blurs the line between routine and ritual. Additionally, you’ll cultivate a deeper connection within yourself while connecting with like-minded yogis in a natural paradise.

​​Each day unfolds with spiritual practices that celebrate your essence, the beauty of nature, and the joy of life. These practices guide you to delve deeper within, discovering inspiration and shedding excess impurities. As a result, you’ll depart with newfound confidence and trust in yourself, equipped with the tools to hold space for any uncomfortable feelings—embracing a transformative new way of living.

As you journey through, you’ll learn to infuse purity, contentment, healthy confrontation, continuous self-study, and absolute surrender into your movement and practice. Ultimately, you’ll embody these attributes in your daily actions, words, and relationships. You’ll also have the opportunity to go on walks and explore the stunning forests of Luang Prabang, engage in meditation, experience an organic farm workshop, cruise on a sunset boat tour, and partake in many more excursions to enrich your retreat experience. Join us in exploring an array of yoga philosophies—all in the peaceful and mystical city of Luang Prabang.

Practitioner Profile: Vijeth Kumar

Fortunate to be born into a family where everybody was aware of Yoga and Vedanta, Vijeth has been witnessing the branches of yoga since the moment of birth. Early in life, he was introduced to the great yogi Sri Niranjana Saraswati, and the humbleness of his power sowed a seed inside him. Later on, he decided to follow his sister and became a student of BNS Iyengar in Mysore, walking the path of Ashtanga Vinyasa. His devotion to yoga led him to post-graduation in yogic sciences and human consciousness at Mangalore University. After over a decade of teaching at all levels of yoga training around the world, he understood that every individual needs special guidance and attention to bloom.

Practitioner Profile: Anan Kumar

Originally from Barcelona, from a very young age, Anan had a deep calling for Eastern wisdom. After graduating in holistic nutrition, her curiosity for Ayurveda led her to discover its twin sister: Yoga. She began to practice with Olga Oskorbina in Jivamukti Yoga Barcelona and decided to further her studies by moving to India. After over a decade of simultaneously studying and teaching in Asia, leading large classes, and providing individualized attention, her classes blossomed. They became a combination of structure and flow, where students navigate intense yet graceful sequences with their breath. Anan is a nutritionist, herbalist, and yoga teacher committed to providing a safe space and a supportive environment. Her goal is to help students evolve their practice and embrace holistic well-being.
