Full Moon Sadhana Retreat
February 2 - 5, 2023
Join us at Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville to experience a Full Moon Sadhana retreat under the guidance of skilled Integral Yoga practitioners.
According to ancient yogic teachings, the full moon day is an auspicious time. The lunar energy is believed to magnify one’s internal energy, therefore it is recommended that full moon days be spent uplifting the mind with spiritual practices. Learn about the yogic significance of purnima (the full moon) and take advantage of this opportune time to engage in full moon practices, including Chandra Namaskaram (moon salutation) with mantras and repetition of the Gayatri Mantra, the ancient Vedic mantra for enlightenment.
Whether you are seeking relaxation, instruction in Yoga practices, or support for your personal practice, the Full Moon Sadhana Retreat will provide the perfect foundation for your spiritual retreat.
What to Expect
Integral Yoga promotes an easeful body, a peaceful mind, and a useful life. Taught 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 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.
This program offers:
- Workshops on yogic lifestyle and philosophy led by senior Integral Yoga practitioners
- Meditation for connecting with one’s inner peace
- Hatha Yoga practices for cleansing and rejuvenation
- Delicious, vegetarian meals for a enhanced immune system
- Opportunities to practice Karma Yoga (selfless service) in various service areas, including the Yogaville Kitchen, Farm, and grounds (For Farm or Grounds Karma Yoga service, please bring sturdy shoes and water bottles)
During the retreat, you will have the opportunity to seek support and clarification from senior Integral Yoga instructors.
Private mentoring is also available.
