5-day Stress Relief & Relaxation Holistic Health Retreat with Prema (SYHET Student in training)

Sunday, August 7 @ 2:00 pm - Friday, August 12 @ 12:00 pm EDT

Stress Relief and Relaxation Weekend Retreat at the Sivananda Yoga Ranch

Cost: Accommodations only


Stress has been determined to be the #1 cause of all illness and disease. During this Stress Relief and Relaxation Weekend Retreat we will be working in alliance with the mind, body and breath, where one can learn to not only effectively reduce stress, but one can actually achieve a deep sense of peace and well-being.

The Stress Relief retreat is offered as part of our Sivananda Yoga Health Educator Training and is based on the time-tested practice of yogic principles that are proven to be highly effective and easy to learn regardless of a person’s experience in Yoga. Come join us to learn practical Yoga techniques to reduce stress and build stress resilience.

You will receive a 90-minute one-on-one Yoga Health assessment by the instructor Prema (TTC 2012, ATTC 2016, SYHET-in-training since 2019) and a personalized plan of care based on the 5 Points of Yoga.

All workshops are free of charge and mentored by Swami Sitaramananda, director of Sivananda Institute of Health and Yoga. Costs are basic accommodations only.
