Enjoyed a retreat two weeks ago on the Sadhana of Prana with Chandrakant and then returned this past weekend for a short Rest & Relaxation. Was hoping for Darshan with Gurudev, but though we missed out on that, we were grateful for Nirali’s Sunday morning presentation on the foundation for I AM Yoga. She is a wonderful teacher full of grace and embodied spirit. It was a gift to sit on the dock and watch the sunset and the full moon rise. We look forward to our next visit!

Started in my mind (while feeling what was and not being able to quite my mind) seeing what's not there, over my stay I realized what was there was so much more I was a close friend to the Kripalu Ashram I had many friends, I consider myself very sensitive, so when Guru Dev was ousted I withdrew! My whole attraction was to practice non-judgment and here the institution that introduced me to the concept was being judgemental Kripalu since and the experience was wonderful just not the same spiritually but to the general, public the commercial customer it's got all the bells and whistles extremely well managed or was the last time typical of the corporate retreats around the world with a little less spirituality Amrit Yoga is for me the exception in a world that is attracted to bling I have revisited all the various methods I've tried and from this day forward become a devote I can't say enough words won't provide the essence of the feeling which is what it's all about God Bless and keep you in this world Amrit Yoga
