What to Expect

Since 1970, Integral Yoga Silent Retreats have provided the sanctuary and solace everyone needs from time to time. Surrounded by a serene woodland landscape, you will immerse yourself in silence while teachers offer experiential classes in:

  • Yoga philosophy
  • Meditation
  • Breathing techniques
  • Yoga postures
  • Deep relaxation
  • Support

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

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.
