The Sanskrit word, Sadhana, refers to practices that deepen our attunement to spiritual life and the noble qualities we want to open, strengthen and realize in ourselves and others. Combining the physical and energy trainings of yoga (sourced from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita) with the mind and insight trainings of both yoga and Buddhist traditions, this retreat provides a spacious time to immerse yourself in a spiritually nurturing, core- strengthening, healing environment with other seasoned practitioners.

You'll begin each day in silence, with an inspiring early
morning guided sadhana of asana, pranayama, deep relaxation and meditation.

Yoga Mudra


Balanced practices and ample room for reflection through asana, pranayama, yoga nidra, meditation, chanting, journaling, discussion, and periods of silence and transform depleted energy into fresh enthusiasm. Insights gained through the presentation and discussion of transformational teachings clarify habitual confusions and shine a light on our shared sources of happiness and well-being. Taken onto the mat and integrated into the body through deep guided yoga experiences, these new learnings can become a trustworthy foundation for the next stage of your journey.
  
The informal atmosphere will allow you to make the postures your own. You'll discover new ways to work with familiar postures and add new postures to your repertoire as well. When you leave, you’ll be re-inspired with practical insight, daily life skills, lighthearted humor, refreshed energy, core yoga techniques, relaxed mind, stable emotions, and a renewed determination to practice.

"With rest, peace and insight I saw the possibilities in my own evolution spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.
This course is a “must” for the development of consciousness and lightening the 'load'."
