An advanced program for existing Vedic meditators only.

Rounding is the most immediate way for Vedic meditators to take their practice to the next level.

Soma Rounding is a four-day, three-night immersion program aimed at rejuvenating your body-mind and expanding your consciousness through the ancient practice of Rounding. Rounding is a unique sequence of very simple asanas, breathwork and meditation designed to release significant amounts of stress in a short period of time. This technique has been used for thousands of years allowing us to access the depths of our awareness, release layers of tension and fatigue from the nervous system and provide a palpable sense of peace and stillness that allows us to adapt to life's challenges more easily.

The only prerequisite of this retreat is that you have learned Vedic meditation previously. There is no minimum amount of time you need to have been meditating to attend a rounding retreat. This retreat is perfect for those looking to re-engage with their meditation practice or anyone looking to take their practice to the next level.

“The retreat was mind-blowing. I had no idea how deep and expansive the practice was actually going to be. I have experience and practiced many different forms of meditation and yoga, however there was something really profound and almost indescribable about rounding. It has really changed me and I continue to feel its benefits on a daily level.”

“I had a pretty transformative experience during my time at Soma. I’ve done a lot of things over the last 2 years to try and get back into balance – retreats, lifestyle changes, shed a lot of my past life including moving, career changes, closing my company, removing much of what I consider ‘the old life’ habits, including people, it’s been a lot. So I’ll be honest in saying whilst I expected some benefits from Soma, I didn’t expect what happened at all. I thought it would be a nice relaxing few days, but that was not my experience. I came out with a lot more than that! So for that I am very grateful.”

My husband and I attended Soma for the learn to meditate retreat with Gary. Could not recommend Soma more! The accomodation and whole property are amazing. Samantha is such a lovely host and Alex’s food is out of this world. Such an incredible experience with Gary and can’t wait to go back!

Soma Byron is one of the most magical and special places I have encountered. From the beautiful grounds, to the exceptional staff (especially Samantha), my retreat left me nourished with incredible food and connection to self. Everyone to go to Soma once a year at least, I could not recommend it enough.

Incredible! Soma is spectacular, I absolutely loved my experience, from the incredible (and satisfying) food to Garry's amazing meditation course. I am not a natural meditator and he was such a great teacher. I am now so inspired and motivated to make meditation a part of my life, thanks to this retreat. I can't wait to book my next stay, just wish there were more stars to rate with!!

If you have the opportunity to go to beautiful Soma it is a wonderful retreat from day to day life but do make it more blissful with yoga with the gifted Kate Henry and a glorious pottery session with Blanche Alexander by the pool and fire pit.

Beautiful building and surrounds. Epic sunset views. Lovely place to relax and unwind. I only wish they'd seen fit to equip the bathrooms with doors.
