New Year Retreat - Ufton Court

Come and join us for a dynamic and/or peaceful, transformative and restorative winter retreat in the impressive setting of Ufton Court, a Tudor/Elizabethan Manor House with picturesque and secluded grounds amidst rolling woodlands near Reading, Berkshire.

Be inspired by nature and the alchemy of yoga, dance, gong meditation, sadhana, ceremony and sharing.

A unique and restorative experience to start the New Year.

or just party (consciously)...

  

New Years Eve Eve (Sunday December 30th) is party night headlined by the Kamari & Manvir - a dynamic mix of music, chant and dance to seek out and shake out the old.

New Years Eve (Monday December 31st) builds gently to a meditative Crossing of the Hour at midnights year end/beginning with Darryl.

New Years Day (Tuesday January 1st) sets the positive intention to BE the best you can be in the uplifting company of likeminded people.

 

The retreat is facilitated by the i-SKY UK K1 graduating students supervised and supported by members of the i-SKY training team. 

A great way to start the New Year and an opportunity to experience the inclusive i-SKY approach whilst enjoying inspiring Kundalini Yoga classes, vegetarian/vegan meals and good company

You will be joining a mixed group from complete beginners to experienced students and teachers of Kundalini Yoga together with their friends and family. Children are welcome (under the supervision of an adult). 

i-SKY try to be child friendly where possible - generally on our retreats children 12 years or under may accompany their parent/guardian (maximum of two children per adult).
There is usually no charge for children BUT children remain in the care of their parent/guardian at all times and s/he must ensure their good conduct.
During a retreat we may provide a simple children's activity area but there will not be specific children's activities unless they are detailed on the final retreat program which is usually published a month before the event. We do not provide childcare or a separate childrens menu.

  

Akashik Recordings Presents Kamari & Manvir Live

"Mantra in motion" An eclectic blend of Kundalini Yoga Mantra's elegantly fused with upbeat electronic grooves.

Kamari & Manvir was founded in 2012 with their hugely successful debut performance at The European Yoga Festival in France.

Exclusively blending Sacred Sanskrit Mantra and electronic beats, Kamari performs with state of the art equipment using a variety of digital Dj software, effects machines and controllers. Kamari is accompanied by the live vocals of Manvir & Benjahmin. Manvir also adds instrumental elements to the mix including didgeridoo, synthesisers and French horn.

Kamari & Manvir offers the ultimate conscious party experience. The embodiment of Mantra over uplifting energetic music enhances the listeners sensation with the infinite power of truth, resonating more than any substance based experience ever could.

 “If you understand in technological terms that you have thirty trillion cells and God is dancing with them and you are part of that dance; you will not only be prosperous, happy and gracious, you’ll find everything comes to you as it should be, and it must be, and it can be”

– YOGI BHAJAN.

Kamari has over ten years experience in the music industry as a professional DJ, producer, event manager and percussionist. 

With an extensive background in both classical and world music, Manvir’s vocal and multi instrumental skills bring the melodic and harmonic elements to the compositional process.

Unified, Kamari & Manvir serve as a vessel for the sharing of sacred devotional word and its resonance. The time for this sharing is now.
