Silent Retreat for Experienced Seekers

About This Event

If you have taken an Integral Yoga® Silent Retreat before and feel ready to go deeper into the Yoga practices, this retreat is tailored for you. Swami Asokananda and Swami Ramananda will share the lessons they have learned over their decades of steady practice.

During this retreat, more time will be devoted to the practices of Hatha Yoga (for all levels), pranayama, and meditation and talks will take you deeper into each of these practices.

There will also be ample opportunities for written questions to be answered and discussed. In this way, the senior teachers will lead you further down the yogic path and provide guidance for those striving to sincerely live a spiritual life.

Testimonials

This retreat was life-changing. Swami gave us food for thought, body, and spirit. The ideas were complex but he took care to explain them using words, images, and activities. — Carol Horner

Information was presented in a clear concise way. The teacher provided depth and knowledge of practice. — Mary Ann “Bhakti” Hogshead

Swami Asokananda teaches as well as he demonstrates the asanas. I like the subtle aspects he puts into the teachings. So the physical postures also lead to a meditative state. He talks about his personal experience and that helps me to understand more easily the meaning of the teachings. — Shraddha

The skillful, dedicated teachers, loving support staff, and breadth of learning that took place surpassed my expectations. — Past Participant
