Integral Yoga Sadhana Weekend
with Ashram Staff and Presenters
Join us for the reopening of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville to experience a sadhana intensive under the guidance of skilled Integral Yoga practitioners. Whether you are seeking relaxation, instruction in Yoga practices, or support in your personal practice, the Integral Yoga Sadhana weekend will provide the perfect foundation for your spiritual retreat.
Integral Yoga promotes an easeful body, a peaceful mind, and a useful life. Taught by Sri Swami Satchidananda, the path of Integral Yoga uses every aspect of life as a stepping stone to one’s supreme goal—lasting happiness and inner peace. The practices of Integral Yoga, including meditation, and Hatha Yoga, will help you to realize the peace which is your own true nature.
Sadhana (practice) refers to any spiritual exercise that is aimed at progressing the aspirant toward the ultimate expression of their life. When done intentionally, everything can be sadhana—the way you think, move, eat, and interact with others.
This program offers:
- Workshops on yogic lifestyle and philosophy led by senior Integral Yoga practitioners
- Meditation for connecting with one’s inner peace
- Hatha Yoga practices for cleansing and rejuvenation
- Delicious, vegetarian meals for a enhanced immune system
- Opportunities to practice Karma Yoga (selfless service) in various service areas, including the Yogaville Kitchen, Farm, and grounds (For Farm or Ground Karma Yoga Service, please bring sturdy shoes and water bottles)

During the retreat, you will have the opportunity to seek support and clarification from senior Integral Yoga instructors.
Private mentoring is also available.
All Are Welcome
These retreats are open to everyone, from beginners to advanced Yoga retreatants. Those who are new to meditation or Yoga practices will receive full instruction, while those with experience will have the opportunity to deepen their practice.
