Traditionally the second of January in Georgia is called “Bedoba”. “Bedoba” stands for “Luck” and therefore, the way you spend the day is believed to determine your new year. This year we are expanding Bedoba to 12 days, each of which will define one of the months of the coming year.
Practice for Body and Mind


The word “Yoga” essentially means, “that which brings you to reality”. Literally, it means “union.”

Union means it brings you to the ultimate reality, where individual manifestations of life are surface bubbles in the process of creation. Yoga means to move towards an experiential reality where one knows the ultimate nature of the existence, the way it is made.

Tai Chi

An art embracing the mind, body and spirit – Originating in ancient China, tai chi is one of the most effective exercises for health of mind and body.

Although an art with great depth of knowledge and skill, it can be easy to learn and soon delivers its health benefits. For many, it continues as a lifetime journey.


Meditation is about training in awareness and getting a healthy sense of perspective. You’re not trying to turn off your thoughts or feelings.

You’re learning to observe them without judgment. And eventually, you may start to better understand them as well.


What can be better than dancing through the New Year holidays? Contact Improvisation, contemporary dance, dervish dance, ecstatic dance - get ready to move and enjoy it!

Whenever we feel a certain way, we can use dance to project our emotions from deep within out into the world.

We will live in the fantastic place of the mountain retreat center in Upper Adjara, waking up to sun, gazing the huge stars in the night and enjoying the silence surrounded by the beautiful nature.
