Om Namah Sivaya, time to slow down...

Ompulence Retreat


Om Namah Sivaya, thank you for your interest in our yoga retreats. I am Carol (Saraswati), your retreat leader from Singapore. Arjuna (Sivananda Yoga Instructor from Portugal) and myself will be leading in the upcoming yoga retreat in Yamanashi, Japan. This will be our 5th yoga retreat and we will also be guiding you in meditations and mindfulness practices, besides the daily yoga asana practices. We encourage you to take this time to tune out from your work and any worries, allow us to guide you in being in the present moment. This will help us to be in touch with nature, with our surroundings and with our breaths a 100%. We hope to have you practise with us in Yamanashi (just 90mins train ride away from Tokyo).
Please click on the menu above or on the top left hand corner (for mobile users) to view the itinerary and fees.
Group discount of 15% is offered if there are 3 or more friends attending this retreat.
We sincerely invite you to join us to experience a meditative and classical yoga practice in the country side.

Testimonials for Ompulence Retreat

Saraswati (Carol) is caring, nurturing and maternal. She helped me to practise the asanas appropriately. I have back  problems but she made the practice very safe for me. The other teacher is Arjuna from Portugal. He is like our father figure at the retreat! The programme is very well balanced. I will recommend this retreat as a good start for anyone who wants a holistic understanding of yoga.

Carol (Saraswati) and Arjuna make a great team as retreat leaders – they are warm hearted, funny and genuine, and solid in their yoga practice. The result was a retreat that was a wonderful mix of contemplative, physically challenging, restful and joyful.

It has always been in my wish list to attend a yoga retreat.  I am glad to chance upon Ompulence while doing my online research and Viola!! … By far, this is the most relaxing and rejuvenating trip I ever had!!  I would definitely recommend this yoga retreat to anyone who is game for it!

Everybody, to the varying degrees of yoga experience, gelled so naturally with one another, with the teachers and with the space. This resulted in a group flow of energy I rarely experienced…
The stars effortlessly aligned and the result was a truly beautiful retreat.

I am relatively new to yoga and this was my first retreat experience. However, I felt immediately comfortable with the teachers and fellow yogis. The group energy was great! Saraswati was kind and gentle in guiding us in the daily yoga sessions. She made timely adjustment to my postures for the Asanas and through her patient coaching I felt that it motivated me to deepen my budding practice. Arjuna was great too! He often made jokes which made everyone laughed and lightened the mood. He also provided a spiritual element to the practice as he conducted the Satsangs and silent walks.

…The yoga sala, the tranquil surrounds, as well as the encouraging voices of Saraswati and Arjuna really uplifted our spirits and determination to deepen our learning each time. The organization and preparation was flawless.
