About us


The 5-day Raja Yoga Foundations: Yamas and Niyamas course introduces the Yogic ethical guidelines for conscious self-development summarized by Patanjali Maharishi that address the root-cause of our suffering. This course teaches counselors and therapists in Yoga psychology in order to lead people to consciously correct the course of their actions bringing peace of mind. Therapists learn to guide people to guard themselves not to misbehave, thus repeating patterns leading to suffering; and on the other side, counsel people to actively cultivating positive attitudes and helpful conduct.

These behavioral guidelines will lead to changes in thinking, thus reducing stress and disease, and make the mind more calm and the perception more clear about self and others, bringing us closer to Self-realization.

These are universal guidelines that, if followed, will improve our lives in the long term and help remove obstacles stemming from our karmic tendencies, character defects, and bad habits.

Students will better understand the causes of anger, fear, lust, jealousy and envy, greed and how to practice ahimsa, satya, brahmacharya, asteya and aparigraha. There will be discussion on the reasons to practice self-discipline, sublimation of sexual energy, devotional practices, purification, contentment, austerity, self-study, and self-surrender.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To give my ego a break from all these construction projects. Layth

Retreat Guru's Vision
