THE Hariharalaya Healing and Retreat Centre, in collaboration with Phnom Penh-based Kundalini Yoga Cambodia, is hosting a two-and-a-half day Kundalini Yoga detox and health retreat on the weekend of May 6, at the Hariharalaya Centre near the Bakong Temple outside of Siem Reap town.

The retreat will be led by New Zealander Rachael Lowe, supported by Tonie Nooyens from the Kundalini Yoga Centre, and will focus especially on the respiratory system and heart and chest area to enable participants to develop awareness of their breath and control it, to strengthen the body’s capacity for managing stress and pollutants, and to improve posture.  

Lowe, who has been teaching yoga since 2009, says that the retreat is for anyone who wants to join. “The beauty of Kundalini yoga is that we’re not about the body, but about synchronising body and minds. This is a journey of the spirit more than a gym class,” she said.

There will be a second retreat on the weekend of May 13 that focuses on finding sparkle through a program of gentle movement, exercise and deep meditation.  

The Hariharalaya Centre, which opened quietly only three months ago, provides yoga, meditation, healing and learning in a relaxed, natural environment.

Guests can enter the retreat for a single class or for any period of time they choose, and select from a program that offers detox/cleansing/fasting, Chinese traditional medicine, creative dance and healing foods cooking classes.  

The fees for the retreats are $300 for Detox and Heal, and $400 for Sparkling Existence, including accommodation and all meals.

Participants from Phnom Penh will be given free return transportation.

Registrations can also be made with Kundalini Yoga House in Phnom Penh on Street 322 in BKK 1, tel: 092 429 835.
