Energize Your Summer!
A Yoga Getaway

  • Jul 5 – 7, 2024

with Bhawani Isaacson

Awaken Your Inner Energy!

Start your summer on a high note with a Yoga Retreat. 

This weekend will be a mini-vacation plus, that will refresh and relax you. Yoga postures, meditation, a pool party, delicious food, new friends, personal time and inspiration will make you feel that summer has begun.

You'll benefit in many way from yoga designed to awaken your inner energy—it is not strenuous, but it is deeply fulfilling and energizing. Ananda Yoga combines classical yoga stretches with soul-awakening affirmations to help you feel rejuvenated in body, mind, and spirit. 

In addition, you will learn to incorporate spiritual practices into your daily life.

The yoga classes will either be on outdoor or in an indoor studio. This will depend on the weather, numbers and other health and safety factors.




You will Enjoy: 

  • Twice-daily sadhanas (guided practice of Energization Exercises, yoga postures, and meditation offered daily before breakfast and before dinner) 
  • A Workshop on How to Work with Your Energy. Experience how yoga poses and mental attitudes influence/affect your energy. Learn how meditation can help balance your attitudes and lenrisch your ife.
  • Instruction in meditation
  • A delightful afternoon of pool time and snacks amidst the beautiful Crystal Hermitage Gardens. Sit by the pool, take a dip if you like, have snacks and socialize, or have quiet time to meditate in the little temples and browse the boutique. 
  • An evening outdoor Kirtan (chanting and singing)
  • 3 delicious organic vegetarian meals daily







Comments from Guests:

I felt very taken care of. It was wonderful to be free to relax and not worry about what needed to be done for everyone around me. I learned to take a few minutes for myself as is important as taking care of my family. L.P. Redding, Ca

I appreciated the teachers' openness and generosity. Their confident leading of poses and visualizations felt reassuring and their caring, open presence felt nurturing and loving. K.P. Menlo Park, Ca

This is my fifteenth retreat at The Expanding Light. I love everything about the EL! Gary W., Sacramento, Ca
