Sign Up

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.  You’ll explore easeful, breath-based Hatha Yoga as the foundation for developing eating and lifestyle patterns that will help you find your balance.

Peaceful Weight Loss 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.

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. 

This program continues for three more days into a six-day weight-loss retreat, where you can practice the concepts fully in a peaceful, supportive environment. 


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 time for check-in: 4 pm and check-out: 2 pm
