Yoga postures have a unique power to relax tense muscles and, especially, to awaken the inner energy for deeper meditation.

Proper meditation will help you attune more to your inner life—and bring deeper sensitivity to your yoga practice. In this deeply rejuvenating retreat, you will learn a meditation technique, taught by Paramhansa Yogananda, that is a tremendous aid to concentration and the discovery of inner peace.

If you have not yet explored the potential of integrating yoga postures and meditation, you are in for a life-changing experience. If you’ve dabbled a little bit in both, you will take home a fresh approach to enliven your practice.

You will learn how to:

  • Cultivate clear, calm, and focused mental energy
  • Incorporate mindfulness and meditation during yoga practice
  • Work with the subtle energies of the astral spine to accentuate positive attitudes
  • Develop a personalized daily routine that suits your schedule and lifestyle

Instruction and activities include:

  • Meditation Techniques
  • Ananda Yoga
  • Pranayama
  • Affirmations
  • Energization exercises
  • Chakra study

You will also have the opportunity to participate in a relaxing evening program, go for a stroll, or watch a sunset on the Ridge.

The weekend will be led Annpurna LaCour who will skillfully guide you to experience the transformative power of yoga to bring your meditation practice to a deeper level.
