New Moon Reset
with Integral Yoga Senior Staff
October 13 - 15, 2023
Realign and reset with a New Moon Reset intensive under the guidance of skilled Integral Yoga® practitioners. The New Moon is the phase of complete darkness between waxing and waning crescents. This lunar phase can be seen as a cosmic reset, balancing the light of the Full Moon with quiet, serene darkness. Representing the start of a new cycle, the New Moon reminds us to embrace change as a means of renewal and growth.
Whether you are seeking relaxation, instruction in Yoga practices, or support in your personal practice, the New Moon Reset Weekend provides a perfect foundation for your spiritual journey. 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 those in your life.
Developed by Swami Satchidananda, the path of Integral Yoga uses every aspect of life as a stepping stone towards one’s supreme goal—lasting happiness and inner peace. Integral Yoga promotes an easeful body, a peaceful mind, and a useful life. 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.
This program offers:
- Workshops on yogic lifestyle and philosophy led by senior Integral Yoga practitioners
- New Moon practices for resetting
- Meditation for connecting with one’s inner peace
- Hatha Yoga classes for cleansing and rejuvenation
- Kirtan (chanting of divine mantras) to open the heart
- Delicious, vegetarian meals for an enhanced immune system
- Opportunity 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
