What to Expect
Integral Yoga promotes an easeful body, a peaceful mind, and a useful life. Developed 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 pranayama (yogic breathing), 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.
Since 1970, Integral Yoga Retreats have provided the sanctuary and solace everyone needs from time to time. Surrounded by a serene woodland landscape, Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville serves as an ideal environment for rest and relaxation while teachers offer experiential classes in Yoga philosophy, meditation, breathing techniques, Yoga postures, and deep relaxation.
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.
A safe and nurturing experience. I plan on repeating it many times over. — Elizabeth C.
I decided to take this program to “fill up my empty cup”. WOW did it happen…more than I could ever have imagined. The classes I attended were all excellent…The environment and atmosphere was so peaceful, loving, and secure; what I have always experienced at Yogaville and it was the same this visit, if not more than ever. Maybe it was the impact of the pandemic and the heightened need to be “cared for” the way Yogaville does. THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart and the farthest depths of the universe. — Sara
I received more than I had the right to expect or hope for. I was welcomed warmly and there was always someone nearby that was willing to help with a smile at all times. Everyone from the ashram community expressed their happiness that we were here. Karma Yoga opportunity was uplifting and satisfying. The innovation and closing were exceptional. I will be back. — Stan
