New Year’s Immersion Retreat – Online
December 29, 2021 - January 2, 2022
Join us for the online New Year’s Immersion Retreat to reflect deeply, gather your strength, renew your inspiration, reconnect with your spirit, and restore yourself in the sanctuary and solace of the Integral Yoga community.
What better time than New Year’s to reflect, renew, and restore ourselves through Yoga and set our sights on health and peace in the year to come.
This online retreat will be a two-track experience. For those yearning for the silent retreat experience which Yogaville has offered every New Year’s since 1970, we will guide you to transform your home into an ashram and dive deep into the waters of silent peace. For those who are busy householders for whom speech is required, we invite you to join the sessions and weave them into your daily obligations, using recorded sessions to create your own schedule.
Either way, the New Year’s Immersion Retreat promises to deliver on what every Yoga practice helps to cultivate: peace of mind.
We will draw upon the experience of our Integral Yoga presenters to “Zoom in” their wisdom and guide us to revisit the profound teachings of Yoga with their famous wit and clarity.
This online program is part of the New Year’s Silent Retreat in-person. Sessions will be offered through Zoom for online participants and both, in-person and online participants will have the opportunity to get their questions answered during Q&A sessions.
This retreat provides:
- Opportunities to experience inner and outer peace and tranquility
- Live instruction in pranayama (yogic breathing techniques), meditation, deep relaxation, and Hatha Yoga for focus and rejuvenation
- Inspiring talks by Integral Yoga teachers, ministers, and swamis (monastics)
This time away from the demands of daily life is intended to invite deep reflection and help you to make inspiring goals for 2022!
Live sessions on Wednesday evening, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday all day, and Sunday morning, with breaks and optional recordings and activities.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until February 27, 2022.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Online Hatha Yoga classes and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
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.
I have been to many IY Silent Retreats, and I have spent a great deal of time at the ashram. But this experience online brought it all “home,” truly, and I feel even more connected to Sri Gurudev’s teachings than I ever have. The quality of all the presentations was outstanding, and the mix of “old” and “young” disciples was wonderful. — Bhavani Zonana
My experiences with all the programs I have taken at Yogaville have all been ones of pure authenticity. The beautiful intention of the staff and presenters that put together each program is felt quite strongly during the course. And even though the times dictates having to use Zoom, the heartfelt love and peaceful energy of the staff is felt through whatever screen I was using. That is a feeling I will always cherish. — John Heyser
Every single talk was exceptional. I feel so at peace. AND it was managed so well over Zoom. Every single one of the presentations/presenters were great. I feel so at peace after doing this online retreat. I have new tools to move forward with my spiritual practice and new motivation. — Kathy Ruffing
The presenters were so authentic and knowledgeable and so willing and skilled at sharing themselves with us. The online materials were both inspirational and practical. I will take so much of what I learned into my everyday life. Thank you for a beautiful retreat. — Anne Tedesco
The online retreat was so well balanced and well thought that it offers knowledge and experience at the level of each participant. — Jasmina Nitya Dimitrieva
