Fall Silent Retreat
with Integral Yoga Senior Staff
October 5 - 8, 2023
Autumn is a season of introspection. It is the perfect time for renewal, reflection, and self-growth. Join us for Yogaville’s annual Fall Silent Retreat to reconnect with your inner self and apply the timeless practices of Yoga to your daily life.
In spiritual practice, we observe the activity of the mind and develop an awareness of our thoughts and emotions. These shifting thoughts and emotions form a colorful inner landscape. During this silent retreat, you will have the opportunity to witness your internal state and understand how you can create positive inner transformation.
Through the practice of silence and the teachings of Integral Yoga, you will go deep within and return home with greater peace and self-awareness.
This program offers:
- Workshops on yogic lifestyle and philosophy led by senior Integral Yoga instructors
- Meditation for connecting with one’s inner peace
- Hatha Yoga practices for cleansing and rejuvenation
- Delicious, vegetarian meals for an enhanced immune system
- Guided hikes to experience the natural beauty of Virginia’s foothills
- Opportunities to practice Karma Yoga (selfless service) in various service areas*, including the Yogaville Kitchen, Farm, and grounds
*Please bring sturdy shoes and water bottles for outdoor Karma Yoga Service

I needed to reset physically, mentally, and spiritually. I needed my world just to stop so I could rest and regain inspiration and well-being. I received what I sought! A beautiful experience of silence and support. I have never felt so optimistic about a new year! Each of the Yogaville staff is a gift to each of us retreatants. Thank you. — Sheila Sheppard
I needed to re-ground myself in my spiritual practices. For the first time in months, I felt such peace and I began to hope and dream for a better future. I would say I’ve gotten more than what I came for because I have a plan for changing my life more powerful than ever before. — Megan Chandler
This retreat was challenging, enlightening, and an opportunity to grow. I learned so much about myself, including things I never expected. Thank you! — Amy V.
I’m so impressed by the warmth, love, commitment to detail, and making everything as perfect as possible. You have high standards for yourselves and your program, but you are so flexible and loving at the same time. — Kathryn Biegman
