THE ESSENCE OF YOGA by Shai Tubali, Ph.D.

Gates into Silence

Meditational Quote 6


You Selected Gate 6


To make this as effective as possible, feel free to download the image or write the sentence down and place it in a place where you will see it every day.

Experiment with it. This is an open invitation to explore the reality behind the words. Where are they pointing to? You might want to reflect and write down what comes up. If you meditate from time to time, read through your sentence before meditation to tune into it. What insights does it bring?

Entering the Gate

The quote points to an aspect of reality beyond the boundaries of our ego.
Contemplating with your sentence, simply making it present in you again, or even meditating with it, can slowly reveal new insights.
Because what this phrase does is it aligns your mind. And so if you go inward with this particular alignment, and dive into stillness, over time a new experience will open up for you.

At the beginning of a retreat with Shai, all participants receive such an individual sentence. Here, of course, this is particularly powerful because we leave the world behind us for a week at a time and immerse ourselves completely in the cleansing and healing power of silence.


Everything is geared towards this – the practices, the talks, the nature, the food, the group energy – letting go deeper into silence. And when we combine these elements – a powerful, healing and liberating field of transformation is created.

It is always a miracle to see how participants begin to glow and smile on the inside after just a few days. And it feels like an inner rebirth.

And that is the invitation of the silent retreat with Dr. Shai Tubali.

“The essence of yoga – immerse yourself in the art of guiding the mind into stillness to enable true self-realization.”

Escape the Noise

Discover who you truly are in the depths of silence

In an age where the pace of life seems to accelerate with each passing day, many of us find ourselves trapped in a cycle of stress, anxiety, and disconnection. Our minds are cluttered with endless to-do lists, our bodies tense with the strain of constant demands, and our spirits dulled by the noise of modern life. We yearn for a pause, a space to breathe, to reconnect with our inner selves, and to find clarity amidst the chaos. Yet, the path to such tranquility and self-discovery often seems just out of reach.

Introducing “The Essence of Yoga” retreat—a sanctuary where the ancient wisdom of yoga illuminates the path to inner peace, health, and profound self-awareness.


Yoga means “Union”. The asanas known from Hatha Yoga are just one component of a holistic system of spiritual enlightenment. Yoga is the art of stilling the mind in order to facilitate self-realisation.

Nestled in a serene natural setting, this retreat offers a unique opportunity to step away from the noise and demands of daily life, inviting you into a world where the mind quiets, the body revitalizes, and the spirit awakens.

This is the invitation of the Essence of Yoga Retreat with Shai Tubali, Ph.D.
