About This Event
Only Available Monday–Thursday
In this program, you will receive spiritual guidance and your schedule can be open or more structured, depending on your needs. This is an opportunity to recharge, reflect, and go deeper on your spiritual journey. Reduce stress and take the time to relax. Yogaville is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of your daily life where you can wrap yourself in the timeless teachings of Yoga. Use the peaceful atmosphere of the Ashram and the daily schedule of Yoga practices to help you recharge. Perhaps you would like time to honor yourself and contemplate “What is really important to me? What steps can I take in order to gain more inner peace, balance, and harmony? How can I lead a more joyful and useful life?”
Our Personal Retreats offer:
Two spiritual guidance sessions with senior monastics
Three group meditation sessions daily
Two Hatha Yoga classes daily
Three vegetarian meals daily
One of our senior monastics or ministers will be available to support you throughout your stay.
You can meet with your mentor at the beginning of your retreat to help clarify your goals and design your program. You can also choose to spend some or all of your stay in silence if you wish.
I stayed with you Monday and Tuesday evening. Everything was wonderful and I will be returning often. By allowing guests to visit for short stays, you make a positive impact on the world. I remember to treat others with compassion and to love peace much more clearly now after visiting. — Dan S.
