Personal Weekend Retreats

whether you are curious...

... about what life on an ashram is like, or need some quiet downtime relaxing in a tranquil healing environment, you are welcome to spend a weekend at Kashi! Beginning with meditation on Friday afternoon and ending with yoga on Sunday morning, there are more than 15 optional activities to choose from as an introduction to ashram life. Or if solitude is what you need, you can explore the footpaths around the 80 acre property and go down to the St Sebastian River.

Yoga is more than exercise

Our approach to yoga is equally off the mat as on the mat.

breath & SOUND

Pranayam, or the practice of breath control, is an ancient art that is incorporated into all Kali Natha Yoga asanas. A great resource to add to your daily practice is Ma Jaya's book, First Breath Last Breath. Mantra and kirtan are also great yogic tools using the vibration of sound. Don't miss our monthly Friday kirtan evenings!

Located within a 40-year-old intentional community in Florida, Sustainable Kashi offers retreats, workshops and immersions on 80 acres of protected native Florida land next to the wild 30,000 acre St. Sebastian River Nature Preserve. Here you can eat, learn and explore your inner landscape as part of an intentional community to help reconnect to our precious eco-system. Treat yourself to a complete immersion into nature and community with a Sustainable Kashi retreat.
