⋗ 8 days of yoga, art and nature in the jungle
⋗ Taught by Prianca Sharma and other Jungle Cats
Close your eyes. Breathe deep… and listen…silence.
Only the sound of leaves ruffling in the cool breeze; cuckoos and bumblebees; water trickling gently in the morning sun.
So much of our life is spent chasing time, running after unfulfilling goals, exhausted from the continuous demands and distractions of Life in the Fast Lane.
It’s time to Rewild !
We’ve put together a very special retreat to unplug and reroot into the depth of what keeps us alive – Nature. Yoga and meditation set the ground for stillness and observation; art and exploring of the jungle awaken our senses and rekindle the creative fire that burns in each of our souls!
For a few days, the jungle will become your home, your wake and sleep will be rhythm by the sounds and silence of the forest. A precious moment to start – or continue – a journey within and recharge to better reconnect with the outside world.

⋗ Teaching style
For Prianca, teacher and student are one. Teaching is about giving without attachment and leading with humility; compassion and care for each student is central to the art teaching. The teacher’s role is only to support students in their self-reflection and to share the tools, ideas and create space for students to find their own empowering experience of life. The teacher grows as much as the student and the teacher is forever a student practicing awarenesses and reflection.
