6-Day Silent Retreat: Deeper Practice for Experienced Seekers
with Swami Asokananda, E-RYT 500
October 28 - November 2, 2022
Join experienced seekers for a 6-day immersive silent retreat and a deeper journey into the practices of Yoga. If you have taken an Integral Yoga® Silent Retreat before and feel ready to learn more and evolve your practice, this retreat is tailored for you. During this retreat, more time will be devoted to the practices of Hatha Yoga, pranayama (breathing practices), and meditation.
Swami Asokananda, senior Integral Yogi and sanyasin (monk), will lead your exploration of the yogic path and provide guidance for those striving to live a spiritual life. He will share the lessons he has learned over decades of steady practice. There will also be ample opportunities for written questions to be answered and discussed.
Prior silent retreat experience is highly recommended.

During the retreat, you will have the opportunity to seek support and clarification by asking questions in written form.
Private mentoring is also available.
