Nirvana Retreats was established in 2007 by Madhavendra, dedicated organizer of Meditation Toronto. She and her husband, Allen, created a hidden gem of a retreat center just minutes from downtown Toronto.
Formally known as Adjalila Gardens, this beautiful retreat center features an infrared sauna, an artesian spring fed swimming pond, a yoga barn, which has been beautifully restored with a bright yoga and meditation room and dining hall, and a variety of accommodations including two cabins and four rooms in the main house as well as the option for tent on the property.
Nirvana Retreats is a place where new friends are made. They welcome guests to come and find a connection to their practice and to other like-minded people, joining an international yoga and health community which continues to grow. They believe in a global village, the interconnectedness of all beings, and the power of nature, meditation, and yoga to heal and nurture.
Learn how to do your own detox at home, discover the methods, the pitfalls, and dispel the myths. This class will provide you with tools to take the power of your health into your own hands, along with recipes, and local resources. The discussion will be followed by a hands-on herbal elixir and live food juice class.
In this class, you will be introduced to the basic principles of mindfulness meditation practice, from breath work to focusing techniques. You will spend half of the class learning the foundations and the second portion will be spent exploring the beautiful premises of the retreat centre on a serene walking meditation (weather permitting).
