We all search for happiness in this life. Yogis teach that this happiness is not outside but can only be found within. According to Swami Sivananda and other great Yogic Masters, the only way to experience absolute fulfillment and unconditional Bliss is by knowing directly our own true infinite, eternal, and ever-peaceful Self which is essentially one with All.

And the only way that this true eternal Self shall be revealed to us is through the path of meditation. Join us in this special week getting immersed in the path of meditation and mantras which are divine names or formulas that help us to become free from the lower mind and bring us face to face with our divine true Self. The best part of this program is the slow pace, depth, and detailed guidance in establishing a consistent meditation practice.

We will share valuable tools to make this new habit enjoyable, progressive, and continuous. Retreat from the stressors and distractions of everyday life and discover a healthier, happier you. This Yoga Vacation Week was designed to ensure complete relaxation and rejuvenation for the body, mind, and soul. Daily yoga classes work in conjunction with the ashram schedule to help your body reconnect with the natural rhythms of nature so that your mind can become more restful and present.

We encourage you to stay for a minimum of three nights (ideally the 5 nights) to fully get the benefits of the program and to settle into the schedule. The minimum requirement is set for two nights. The biggest risk is that you won’t want to leave 🙂

The ashram is all-inclusive and offers you a wonderful retreat in nature, delicious food, 2 daily yoga classes, 2 daily satsangs (communal events with joyous chanting, meditation, and spiritual lectures), and daily workshops about different weekly topics.

“Meditation is the royal road to the attainment of freedom, a mysterious ladder that reaches from earth to heaven, darkness to light, mortality to immortality.” Swami Sivananda
