Peaceful Weight Loss Six-Day Retreat - 2013 Featured Image

Immerse yourself in the Peaceful Weight Loss program as you explore easeful, breath-based Hatha Yoga as the foundation for developing eating and lifestyle patterns that will help you find your balance. You will practice easy, gentle, restorative Yoga postures, breathwork and meditation, eat delicious vegetarian food and go home lighter, stronger and ready to continue with a new lifestyle that will ensure healthy weight loss.

The first three days will offer a workshop format introducing you to the concepts and practices that Bhanu uses with his clients. The next three days will give you time to integrate these practices and experience their benefits. Bhanu will be available to help you with personal issues during the week so that you leave ready to take the changes you’ve made home with you as sustainable, healthy living patterns.

Peaceful Weight Loss, created and taught by Bhanu, who has lost one hundred pounds using this easy, gentle, restorative practice, is appropriate for everyone. No previous Yoga or Peaceful Weight Loss experience is required. If you have already attended a Peaceful Weight Loss Workshop, you will have an opportunity to deepen your practice here.

Please contact Bhanu directly with any questions at

Note: If you are unable to attend the full six-day retreat, you may attend the weekend, May 8–May 10.

“I had thought this program was just going to provide steps for weight loss. We went much deeper to get to the actual root of overeating. What I learned surprised me and now has me on the right track. Learning this was priceless to me.” —Retreat Participant
