with Brandt Bhanu & Anna Neiman Passalacqua


Join nationally recognized weight-loss facilitator and author of Peaceful Weight Loss Through Yoga, Bhanu Passalacqua, as he introduces you to the concepts and practices that have helped him and his students lose weight and find balance in their lives.  This is a gentle, restorative practice that helped its creator and facilitator, Bhanu, lose over 100 pounds. It includes Yoga postures, breathwork, meditation, suggestions for dietary changes, and time for questions.

During this retreat, you’ll first immerse yourself in the Peaceful Weight Loss program as you explore easeful, breath-based Hatha Yoga as the foundation for establishing balance. Over these three days, you’ll have many opportunities to practice Hatha Yoga, meditation, and eat delicious vegetarian food. Then, you’ll have three more days to integrate these practices more deeply and fully experience their benefits so you can go home stronger, lighter, and ready to continue a sustainable healthy lifestyle that will ensure weight loss.

This program is for everyone—no previous Yoga or program experience is required. If you have already attended a Peaceful Weight Loss workshop, you will have an opportunity to deepen your practice.


I thought that this program was just going to provide steps for weight loss—but we went much deeper, getting into the actual root of overeating. What I learned surprised me, and has put me on the right track. Learning this was priceless to me. — Past participant


Official times for check-in: 4 pm and check-out: 2 pm
