It is the happy acceptance of what is, just as it arises.

It is the experience of contentment.

And it is a sweetness of indescribable beauty.


It is the name of the camp which has been running now for 11 years, and the camp herself is an opportunity to EXPERIENCE SANTOSA:

'By the experience of Santosa, unparalleled happiness arises' (Yoga Sutra, 2:42).


HARI OM dear yoginis and yogis,

Santosa offers over FIFTY wonderful yoga and meditation and dance teachers, musicians, singers and workshop facilitators, as well as the opportunity to experience Yoga Nidra 5 times a day and to supplement this with discounted access to the uniquely comparative and exploratory online Total Yoga Nidra Foundation course, and also to be healed and ministered to by a host of skilled therapists.

We are delighted to welcome back some of our very favourite teachers who have been coming to Santosa yoga camp for years, and some very marvellous new friends, all sharing their skills, love and joy with us: we're looking forward to Kashmir yoga with Veronika and Laughter yoga with Amanda, to Heartsong every morning with Eliza and with Siri Sadhana, to Womb Yoga and Yoga Nidra from a cracking team from the Yoga Nidra Network, to chanting the names of the goddess with Antarma and the Amma satsang, to daily Babaji aarati with Tabla Tom and Thrisha, and evening bhakti from Babaji temple singers, Tim Chalice and Sivaani Mata, to Wild Yoga contemplative movement with Theo Wildcroft, to  DANCEmandala with Shaku and Shakti Dance with Anjali, and to the mighty Avalon Roots!  
And these are just a few of our favourite Santosa peeps! For a full listing of all our very wonderful teachers, bhaktas, meditation teachers and bhakti musicians, please visit our profiles page.
Please do bear in mind we are always open to the possibility of inspirational changes and bright ideas, so the schedule is never final till we get onto the field herself! We joyfully operate from a place of potent and creative uncertainty, in the loving arms of the deep feminine… But this is a pretty clear guide to what to expect. ENJOY 

As well as the marvellous schedule we also have a specially constructed NEW SAUNA (which is quite a treat to use), as well as a host of fabulous new extras in the kids' department (including origami and flying fun… and that's on top of the programme of kids' crafts activites). 

And all this is served up with three delicious veggie meals a day - plus complimentary chai at the morning meeting, and free hot chocolate at story time for the litle ones.

At Santosa you are welcomed, fed and get to share your mealtimes with a fabulous family of yogis of all ages.  

Once you are on site, every workshop, class, activity and meal is ALL INCLUDED in the price. What a wonderful thought!


With great respect and love from UMA

SCROLL RIGHT ON DOWN to the bottom of this page and prepare to be astounded and delighted by the offerings gifted from the hearts of the most beautiful gathering of radiant souls and teachers, singers and lovers of yoga ever to be gathered together in one beautiful meadow: THANK YOU to everyone who is offered from their hearts this year at this special camp…  

We share the tasks between us so that the Beautiful Healing Field Meadow is full of beings who are full of SANTOSA…  



Dear Lovely Santosa peeps

Our schedule will be posted here a few days before camp starts. Please print and bring with you.

This is our thirteenth camp and we feel we have brought together here the most astonishing and diverse range of wonderful teachers to share from their hearts with you this year. We've been running the camp now since 2005, so feel confident that this year's schedule is, by a process of evolution, certainly the best ever!

She is a work in progress, and she is not our final say on the matter - there are more delights to add at every moment - so please do check again when you arrive and amend your document.

Updated versions of the schedule will be here for you to peruse.

Meanwhile, here is our schedule for 2015, to give you an idea of what will be offered. This draft schedule is provided to give you a taste of the rhythm of the day and the sort of marvellous teachers we have. ENJOY XXX

Hard copies of the complete schedule will be provided at the camp for those who are unable to print it in advance.

Also we have a SPECIAL DOCUMENT for parents of children and teens to share with you. Please, if you are bringing teens and children to the camp, be sure to download this useful document to find out what to bring and what you can do at the camp…

With great respect and love I send warm wishes for your well being
