Joyful Living Auroville December 2016

Make ordinary days extraordinary!

23rd – 27th December | Tibetan Pavilion, Auroville

Join me for a 5-day joyful living experience. We’ll explore together the magic of the forest township of Auroville.

I used to have a busy corporate job in London. Once I learnt to live my days mindfully, I noticed how I became much more relaxed. The days weren’t less stressful, but I wasn’t as stressed anymore. Instead, I was feeling grateful for my life.

I created the Joyful Living retreat to help participants to cultivate mindfulness and gratitude. The retreat’s five themes are designed to anchor your days in the things that matter to you and bring joy into your life. In a warm and supportive group of maximum eight participants, we will explore how to make ordinary days extraordinary.

I combine my management consulting background with a thorough understanding of personal growth and coaching. I have a keen interest in nutrition and eastern spirituality, which has led me to spend most of the last three years in India practicing yoga and meditation.


This powerful retreat will give you:

  • Written positive outcomes about what Joyful Living means to you
  • An individualised roadmap on how to get there
  • Commitment to prioritise according to your values
  • A renewed sense of energy to optimise your life
  • A chance to soak up the magical Mediterranean

Each day at the retreat includes a yoga and meditation session to open your heart and body, and two interactive workshops on the Joyful Living theme of the day. You will also have plenty of time for relaxing by the beach, or going for a walk in the forest, exploring the village and countryside.

I facilitate the workshops using life coaching techniques to create insights and find your own answers, as well as get you committed and accountable to put them into practice and transform your life.

Day 1| Waking up: how to start your day with awareness

Day 2| Mindful routine: how to build a yoga and meditation practice

Day 3| Eat joyfully: how to eat what your body needs

Day 4| Flow through your day: how to keep things simple and follow your heart

Day 5 | Unwind: how to close your day and prepare for sleep
