Yoga Retreat Information

Patrycja Mochocka from Thrive Yoga Studio, will be leading two days of liberating yoga, meditation, pranayama and hiking in the tranquil setting of Tara Rokpa Centre in the Groot Marico District.

The focus of this retreat is simplifying the tools of yoga and mindfulness. We will learn to open and navigate the waves of energy constantly flowing through the body. Then we can move through life, as Brene Brown puts it, “with a strong back, soft front and a wild heart.”

The way we feel flavors our life experience. Understanding how to process emotion decreases stress and the negative effects it has on the body. Tension, dis-ease and injury may be a manifestation of unprocessed emotions. Our ability to experience the full range of emotions increases a sense of self mastery, courage and trust.

This is for those brave hearts who are sick and tired of listening to the self-negating chatter of their monkey mind. Those who are ready to kick depression, self-sabotage and addiction in the butt and experience the richness of life in all its multifaceted dimensions.

Patrycja MochockaAbout Patrycja Mochocka

Why this retreat? My yoga journey started in 2007. From the very fist class I connected to myself on the most profound level and finally found home.

Classes were my sanctuary. A place of no mind to which my negative thoughts, hurtful emotions and addictions did not have access. Yet when I left I had to face it all again plus some. Yoga did its work on releasing pain and trauma from my tissues, often bringing it up to the surface. Without effective coping tools to deal with what came up I spiraled deeper into depression. Sometimes yoga is not enough.

This journey led me to research, study and practice tools which would lead me out of PTSD, depression and addiction.

The most effective tools proved to be ones of mindfulness, meditation and journalling, in conjunction with yoga. Please note this is an over simplification, it is quite a detailed process.

I’ve hinted of these processes in my teaching but since attending Ana Forrest’s Advanced Teacher Training in November of 2017 I have realised that it is my purpose to share this knowledge with, and empower, those who are still suffering.

My wish for you who are reading this is to find peace within your soul, power in your heart and freedom in your mind. Therefore I have created this retreat for you.

I hope you can join me on this path to freedom.

Namaste, dear friends.
