Transformative Yoga Retreat in Filipino paradise!

Embark on a life-changing journey of self-discovery with this week-long chakra activation experience at DRYFT, an eco-sustainable retreat nestled on a small tropical island of Palawan, Philippines. Each day you’ll explore a different chakra and their connections to the five elements – earth, fire, water, air and ether – through energising and relaxing yoga classes, meditation and pranayama. Expect to learn the theory behind the ancient understanding of chakras as well as experience potent practices to feel into, and understand, your own energy.

Immersed in the stunningly beautiful, natural surroundings of Darocotan Island, you will stay in quirky, eco-lux accommodation and enjoy tastebud-tantalising, locally sourced food (including vegan and veggie options). There’ll be plenty of free time to unwind in a hammock, on the pristine, sandy beaches or in the crystal-clear waters. This will be a truly transformative experience, helping you to find more balance and a deeper sense of harmony within yourself.


Imagine waking up each morning to the soothing sounds of the ocean before heading to the tranquil bamboo shala for an invigorating morning vinyasa practice amongst the palm trees. After class, indulge in a mouth-watering breakfast before enjoying free time on the island to explore, relax or adventure. As the sun starts to think about setting, unwind with a gentle yin practice, complete with pranayama and meditation, to restore your mind, body, and spirit.

But this retreat is more than just an escape to paradise. Each day is focused on one of the seven chakras, allowing you to explore and embody the unique energy of each center. For instance, the first day dives into the root chakra (Muladhara) with grounding movements, contemplation on stability and roots, and meditation to tap into the earth element. Throughout the week, you'll delve into the philosophy of energetics and be immersed in practices that guide you through an authentic and transformative experience.

The intention of this retreat is to equip you with the knowledge and tools to reconnect with yourself as an energetic being, explore any imbalances, and find equilibrium in your energy systems. If you're seeking more individual guidance, you'll also have the chance to take part in additional workshops or private classes.
