15-22 August 2021, Prema Yoga Retreat with Christina Gdisis & Ira Ruiz

About This Project

 Prema Yoga Retreat

Join us on the 7-night, 8-day all-inclusive retreat geared to self-exploring, self-accepting and nourishing every layer of who we are so that we may  re-awaken our own self-love.


We will explore sacred practices such as Bhakti Yoga and Ayurveda, meditation, breathwork, and vedic bodywork amongst other healing modalities for us to reconnect internally to our true authentic Self; where mind, body and soul unite.

From this integrated place is where we can move forward into our daily lives grounded and empowered by our highest purpose.


The path of Bhakti Yoga was the process that brought us back home to who we really are. Through it we began an inward journey that shifted away what no longer was serving us, and brought forth the missing link that we had been seeking for so many years; divine soul connection.

Shortly after committing to the practice, our lifestyles began to change. Creating a foundation on Bhakti, Ayurveda, Breathwork and other healing modalities, we allowed ourselves to uncover the greatest gifts a human can experience.


Daily practice & self-study


Community & association


Service to each other

We strongly trust in the process of committing to these three pillars, which have completely changed our lives, therefor we invite you to dive into an experience of living these teachings and reaching your fullest and highest potential.
