Vitality, Balance and Detox will be the key words for this retreat and you can already start imagining the forests, whiskey, kilts and amazing meals! No doubt amazing as our chef, Hayley North, will go out of her way to go beyond any of the raw, vegan and kale trends to serve you with outstanding healthy fuel!

The number of participants will be limited in order for both myself and Hayley to focus on You during this yoga retreat Scotland!

There will be a wonderful blend of international participants, from all over the globe.

The intention behind the retreat is to slow down, to replenish yourself, to relax and to rejuvenate. So, our package will give you five days of yoga, meditation and healthy food. As a result, a cleansing experience that will fill your cup and deepen your practice.



Our Home away from home is just perfect. Authentic, warm and elegant.

Set in a beautiful garden, overlooking loch Tay. An ideal setting for the union of body, mind and spirit.

There’s a total of 13 beautifully designed rooms and lots of rooms have a direct view on either the loch or the garden.
Here’s a video of our getaway, to give you a better picture.


Flying into Edinburgh.
About an hour and a half away and transfers are included in your retreat package if you choose the all inclusive transfers.

On the 17th of August, there will be an inclusive shared transfer, leaving at the Edinburgh Airport at 2PM.
It’s 90 minutes drive to our house.

If for whatever reason, you choose to arrive at another time, we can arrange transfers for you at extra cost.
You can check in as off 4PM. Ideally, you arrive before dinner, so before 7PM to enjoy your first day and have time to settle in. We start our lessons on Sunday.

On the last day, we will have to leave our venue behind at 10AM so we have one shared transfer to the EDI Airport at 10AM.
We can organise any transfer you like, at extra charge.

Renting a car might also be an option as cruising through the Scottish Highlands is a really pleasant adventure! Especially if you’re used to driving on the ‘other’ side of the road.


Both cities are worth while and if you have the time, check out both.

If you really have to make a choice, Edinburgh might be the better choice around this time as there’s a really interesting summer festival you might want to visit after the retreat.

Happy to assist you in sharing nice tips for hotels.

rachel bonkinkYou will go home after this break, with a mental back pack, filled with practical tools to help you maintain and cultivate Balance in your daily life.

I have been teaching for several years now and I do what I do because it is who I am – it is what I love to do.
Traveling the world and inspiring people in anyway I can.


What I bring across is so much more than bending forwards and backwards. As I have a worked both as a COO and consultant before founding Revealing Vajra, I know what stress is. I know what deadlines are, real deadlines, handling huge budgets-with a lot of zeros, pleasing your C-level customers, keeping your corporate tribe happy- our tribe had 100+ people on the payroll.

Combine this with many years as a personal life coach, my shiatsu practises and ongoing yoga teacher trainings and personal retreats.

And, you get someone in front of you who is able to organise retreats that are very different.

It is this unique combination – a deep understanding of corporate life and the corporate ladder, alongside a vast experience of mind-body trainings and many personal retreats, plus the expertise of organising over 70 (!) of my own yoga retreats – that gives my yoga holidays and retreats a very POWERFUL edge.

I will help you to focus on enjoying your practice and gaining new insights into your body, mind and the yoga philosophy.

In conclusion, these holidays are so much more than just a getaway. These retreats can be truly life changing and empower you to become a more healthy and happy person.


I will teach different styles of yoga, and offer several guidelines/techniques for meditation during this week.

Starting with Hatha, lots of Yin, and Yin/Yang… At least one class is Kundalini yoga.

All levels are welcome, I know how to adjust all poses.

I don’t take life all too seriously, nor do I see yoga as the most serious thing in the world. It’s very possible that I even make a joke here or there during our classes together…

Pranayama (breathing), meditation and yoga philosophy are part of all my lessons.

Asana wise, I started my own journey about 10 years ago with Ashtanga. Later on, I got very inspired by Iyengar trained teachers like Gustavo Ponce and John Stirk. Over the years, I’ve taken several 100 and 200 hour teacher trainings in India, the Netherlands, the USA and Thailand. Currently, I enjoy receiving teachings by Paul Grilley and Alan Wallace. Every year, I go on at least two to three retreats myself to recharge, rejuvenate and broaden my knowledge on yoga and meditation.

I am happy to discuss your expectations and see if this holiday is right for you. I welcome any and all questions or concerns you may have and invite you to email me at: or just give me a call on +32 476 204 121.

This yoga retreat was exactly what I needed!

It was all so very well organised and last but not least, I have to mention the healthy food every day. I can highly recommend this retreat and I will join Rachel again in the future!

My second revealing vajra yoga retreat and was once again, it was wonderful.
The combination of being in the Scottish Highlands, with yoga classes and a group of great people, made this week a moment of rejuvenation and joy.
