A Journey to Sacred Slowness and Deep Restoration

In a world that glorifies busyness and hustle, rest becomes a radical acta rebellion against the relentless demands of a society that values productivity over the wellbeing of our souls. With ‘Radical Rest’, this transformative 7-night retreat at our idyllic, serene DRYFT eco-retreat in the heart of the Philippines, the focus is on softening + surrendering into deep rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, and mindfulness. Embrace the power of slowing down, for within the realm of unhurried tranquillity lies a profound path to self-discovery, healing, and reconnection.


Immerse yourself in a sanctuary of serene slowness, where each breath is an invitation to release tension and surrender to the nurturing embrace of Radical Rest. Our carefully crafted program revolves around gentle, slow flow yoga, Yin & Yoga Nidra practices that honour the body's need for deep restoration. Every movement is a meditation, an opportunity to find solace in the simplicity of being present.

Experience the profound relaxation and healing powers of Yoga Nidra, a practice that guides you into the realm of conscious sleep, where you can unravel the layers of stress and access profound levels of peace. Allow yourself to be cradled by the soothing vibrations of guided meditations designed to unlock deep relaxation and inner stillness.

In recognition of the sacredness of rest, we delve into somatic practices that regulate the nervous system, bringing harmony to the delicate interplay between mind and body. Through gentle movements and mindful awareness, you will discover new avenues to release stored tension and cultivate a sense of embodied tranquillity.

Delve into the transformative power of breathwork practices, nurturing the parasympathetic nervous system and cultivating a state of calm and restoration. Allow the breath to be your anchor as you journey deeper into realms of peace and tranquillity, discovering the profound benefits of conscious breathing.

At Radical Rest, we acknowledge the profound wisdom that rest is a radical acta rebellion against a culture that perpetuates the belief that constant productivity defines our worth. We challenge this notion and honour the sacredness of being. We invite you to embrace the truth that rest is an essential part of our journey—a pathway to reconnect with the radiant essence that resides within.

As with all DRYFT yoga retreats, Radical Rest includes an El Nido island hopping boat tour, where you'll discover the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding islands and connect with the splendour of nature. Surrender to the gentle touch of the sea breeze and allow your heart to expand with awe and gratitude.

Additionally, indulge in a complimentary traditional massage, a gift to nurture your body and honour the exquisite vessel that carries your spirit. Feel the knots of tension dissolve beneath skilled hands, as you drift into a state of pure bliss and restoration.

Join us on this transformative journey where radical rest becomes an act of self-love, a celebration of your inherent worthiness, and an affirmation of your true nature as a sacred, living being. Allow Radical Rest to guide you back to the wisdom of slowness, where the dance of stillness unfolds and the magic of rejuvenation awaits.
