Yoga Retreat for a Stronger Nervous System

Sep 8 – 10, 2017

Ananda Yoga® is well suited to repairing the nervous system. We offer a dynamic and yet relaxation-based approach that enhances awareness of the nerve and energy links between body and mind.

When nerves are frazzled from stress, over-stimulation, or disease, our brains react from survival mode—with subconscious, instinctive behaviors—instead of responding to life as we would like to: appropriately and with intention. We may experience fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and other unpleasant symptoms.

During this program, participants will learn simple yet powerful techniques:

  • Exercises that train neuromuscular coordination, as well as draw vitality and strength to all parts of the body
  • Classical yoga poses, conscious breathing, and positive affirmations that create strength, flexibility, and connectedness
  • Techniques to draw on the healing aspects of the parasympathetic (“rest and repose”) nervous system
  • Meditation to retrain the brain and create more efficient pathways to the pre-frontal lobes, the most highly evolved part of our nervous system, where we experience our most inspired, creative thinking and elevated levels of consciousness

Ananda Yoga practice connects us with our calm center within, where we discover our innate wisdom. The journey to healing of body, mind, and spirit unfolds as it should.

Share relaxed time with other truthseekers, close to nature, bathing yourself in peace and expansive consciousness.

The human nervous system “constitutes the one and only path to spiritual enlightenment, regardless of formal religious affiliation.”

—Paramhansa Yogananda, The Rubaiyat Explained
