—Paramhansa Yogananda

Face the New Year with Clarity video with Vahini at The Expanding Light Retreat

January 1st always brings a sense of rebirth and many good intentions. Like a book with blank pages, the new year opens before us waiting to be filled with new and exciting stories, with new inner and outer steps. But how do we choose the right direction for our efforts? And how do we ensure that good intentions become actual, concrete steps towards happiness?

This yoga retreat is the ideal preparation for facing the new year with clarity. It will help you tap into your intuitive flow, your inner sense of who you are, and your determination. You will become aware of the many tools you have already available, within and around you, to achieve your goals. In an atmosphere of joyful support and friendship, together we will use yoga to both relax and energize ourselves. Meditation, visualization and journaling will deepen our inner experience and understanding. 

We look forward to preparing together for a new year of joyful inspiration, and the readiness to embrace the great possibilities awaiting you in 2021!

Ananda Yoga, created by Swami Kriyananda, offers Hatha Yoga as it was originally intended: as a tool to raise awareness and enhance spiritual development. Thanks to this internalized practice and the use of affirmations, you will experience the conscious union of body, mind, and soul for a more joyful life.

 What is Ananda Yoga?

  • Based on the teachings of the great Yogi/Master, Paramhansa Yogananda, who brought to the West practical tools for increasing one’s spiritual awareness and achieving Self-realization
  • Classical Hatha Yoga, which recognizes that physical postures do much more than aid our physical health. They connect the body, mind, breath, and consciousness into one harmonious flow
  • A practice that uses the knowledge of subtle energy to experience the truth that we are beings of energy
