Fall Equinox Kundalini Yoga Retreat 2019

Friday, September 20 - Tuesday, September 24

We are excited and honored to invite you to our second annual Kundalini Yoga retreat here at Yoga Terrace, in Arao-shi, Kumamoto, Japan.  Join us for 3 ½ days and 4 nights as we dive deeply into the technology of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, visit beautiful temples and healing sites, experience local Japanese culture and vegetarian food, and share in sacred space with one another. 

Equinoxes are the times where the sun and moon’s influence on us are equal. Yogi Bhajan said, "on the equinoxes and solstices, the heavens and the earth are in perfect balance."  An equinox is a time where we can release any deeply held dualities while simultaneously activating a deeper connection to our soul.


The Fall Equinox is a natural time of balance and preparation. Day and night are of equal length, with the following days shifting us from longer light to darker nights, preparing us for winter. It’s harvest season – a chance to reap what we’ve sown, give thanks, cleanse and prepare the ground to reflect, restore and refocus.  Energetically, it provides a moment when we can effortlessly balance our dual nature, our light and our shadow, allowing kundalini to rise easily and expand our consciousness.

* What things need to start or finish that you've been avoiding?
* What are you looking to begin?
* What do you need to get rid of to make space?
* What negative thoughts or beliefs are preventing your growth?

We will provide the space and opportunity for you to answer these questions, as well as any other questions you have for yourself regarding your life here on earth.  

This is an intimate retreat for up to 8 people only.  This means you will have plenty of time with our teachers to ask questions and get to know one another in a safe, sacred, and relaxing space.

Please scroll down for all the pertinent details, including dates and location, prices and payment options, accommodation information, as well as photos of Yoga Terrace, your teachers, past events, and some of the places we'll be visiting.

Please message us at raenergyhealing@gmail.com or kayoishi1227@googlemail.com with any questions or concerns you may have!  We hope to see you on this special Fall Equinox.

For our friends in Shanghai, we are encouraging you to fly Spring Airlines from Dupong to Saga Airport.  The price is around $375 round trip and is the cheapest we can find.


There is a shuttle bus that we will schedule for you from Saga Airport to Omuta rail station, where we will pick you up.  You also have the option to rent a car for fairly cheap from Saga Airport if you would like to have more freedom to explore on your own.  Please enquire with us for more details on a rental car.

For our friends in America, we recommend flying into Fukuoka (or Saga, but not many flights into here) the morning of 9/20 and taking the train from the airport all the down to Omuta Station.  We are happy to provide exact details for you. We recommend onetravel.com and edreams.com for cheapest airfare prices.
