About This Event
Long before there were scientific tools to prove their findings, Yogis knew the human body to be an ultra-sophisticated electromagnetic system, aligned with the Earth’s own bio-resonance. As modern technology proliferates, we find ourselves exposed to more and stronger manmade frequencies that disrupt the natural vibrations within and around us, negatively affecting all life-forms.
Here at Sat Manav Yoga Ashram, cellular networks and wi-fi signals don't reach us! We are off-grid and use electronic devices minimally. Your “digital detox” will begin as soon as you arrive!
But that is not all. Because the Yogis truly understood our electronic organism, they knew how to harmonize it when disturbed, using our inherent power of attention and physical manipulations. In today's world where digital and electronic “pollution” are seemingly unavoidable, this ability is essential to a happy and fulfilled life.
This retreat focuses on how to use Yogic practices, lifestyle, diet and even technology to minimize and counteract the physiological and psychological effects of manmade EMFs, paving the way to a “cleaner world” for the benefit of all beings.
An increasing body of research is examining how online activity and digital media consumption affect both mental and physical health. Scientists have discovered some very real dangers associated with ongoing, excessive technology use. Join us to reconnect to what matters most and establish balance your life!
Venue HighlightsLooking to truly retreat, step completely away from "society"? We are far from the big city, off-grid, nestled in the forest, no cell service... Nothing disturbs the mountain expanse, the sound of rushing streams, the quiet serenity that is the perfect backdrop for deep reflection and making positive life changes.
Our buildings are eco-friendly, comfortable, heated with wood, cooled by the fresh mountain air and lit with solar power. All of our rooms sleep 2 people (2 twins or 1 queen) with baths attached. Our guest buildings also have solar lighting and are free from all other electronics and their disturbing EMFs to allow complete digital detox, essential for you to re-energize.
We have temples, walking trails and shrines for meditating and contemplation. Our Strawbale Yoga Shala is open all hours for practice and meditation. A wood fired sauna provides purification, release and glorious hot showers.
Join us to completely unplug, release, renew and rejuvenate.
