Allow yourself the luxury of going deep within to realign yourself with your own inner guidance during Yogaville’s annual ten-day silent retreat.
With today’s myriad outside influences, what means most to our own hearts can easily get muddled and lost. However, it is possible to reconnect with the Higher Self and see beyond external messages with the help of yogic practices. By calming the body, quieting the mind, and allowing for inner reflection, the authentic feelings of the heart can be distinguished.
Come to Yogaville and immerse yourself in peace and silence for ten days.
During the retreat, enjoy:
- Daily Hatha Yoga, pranayama (breathing practices), guided deep relaxation, and meditation
- Delicious, vegetarian meals
- The natural beauty and stillness of our sacred spaces
- Inspirational talks given by Integral Yoga’s senior teachers
- Classes in yogic techniques and philosophy that will assist you on your journey
You are invited to join us for this time of self-discovery, during which you will refresh and replenish your body, mind, and soul.
Within every heart is an ocean of peace and joy—our own true nature. Take time this year to rediscover your own inner pathways to that peace and joy.
What to expect

Ten wonderful days of silence. Staff was amazing. Grounds are incredible. I’ll do it again. Food at Sivananda Hall was amazing. Yoga classes were awesome; I really improved my practice. It was peaceful and quiet. Rev. Rudra has such a wonderful presence. — Mary Beth S, 10-Day Silent Retreat 2018 Participant
