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.

The Kashi experience is second to none.

"This place was as if I was in a wonderful, magical dream. It was breathtaking." Retreat participant.

In addition to Kashi’s own workshops and trainings, we are pleased to offer our facilities and resources to other groups and organizations seeking a retreat space to host their own programs. Kashi’s studio spaces are in a beautifully secluded part of the property and are particularly suitable for meditation, yoga, wellness and contemplative retreats. Kashi’s campus offers the richness of Mother Nature and an inclusive community that respects all faith traditions and walks of life. Kashi staff do their utmost to provide concierge service to ensure your group is well taken care from beginning to end of your stay.

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help before and during the retreat. Our weekend at Kashi was absolutely magical.
