Our Integrated Holistic Yoga Lifestyle Program (IHYLP) will introduce you to various yoga teachings and related body-mind-spirit practices that support your retreat journey - and your life - on many levels.
The program was originally conceptualized by retreat co-founder and holistic program director, Evening Marie, who currently leads the 5-Night Yoga B & B program. During the 6-Night annual Summer Yoga Festival, our IHYLP is further expanded upon by the specialized and inspirational teaching contributions of esteemed Co-Hosting Events Teachers (see our calendar for full details).
Program sessions are generally divided into two parts daily: morning (yoga) sadhana and, in summer months, either an afternoon or an evening workshop session that is focused on a particular theme.
Morning Sadhana - All Events
Sadhana is a daily spiritual practice that includes a balancing blend of techniques to help you "tune into" yourself, the intentions you have for your life and for the day ahead. Chanting, pranayama, meditation, asanas (postures) & deep relaxation are traditionally included in this process.
The purpose of sadhana is to enable you to start your day in a sacred, disciplined, and focused way. These sessions - generally last between 90 - 120 minutes during Summer Events and up to 2.5 hours during Yoga B & B Events - will awaken you profoundly; aligning you to your body, mind and spirit while preparing you to greet life's daily adventures with a sense of peace and clarity.mind and spirit while preparing you to greet life's daily adventures with a sense of peace and clarity.
