Since 1970, Integral Yoga Silent Retreats have provided the sanctuary and solace everyone needs from time to time. You will immerse yourself in silence while teachers offer experiential classes in Yoga philosophy, meditation, breathing techniques, Yoga postures, and deep relaxation.

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.


AMAZING. I have no words to do justice to the experience. It felt like coming home, rooting the teachings and heart of Integral Yoga in my own home! The online Spring Silent Retreat was a true jewel. Best thing I have done “for me” in a while. I live far away and it was a marvelous opportunity to bring the teachings to the core of my home. If you’re seeking to deepen your practice while creating an ashram-like peacefulness in the heart of your own home, sign-up today! — Natalie Alarcon (Nishtha)

I loved my experience last weekend despite it being on-line. I appreciate that you offered sessions that I can still access as well as being able to revisit any sessions I especially enjoyed. Each of the spiritual instructors had a unique voice but all exhibited such warmth and humility and comfort during these very stressful times. The joy they have found in their lives at Yogaville is obvious and a wonderful example of lives well lived. I already miss them all but will return to hear their wisdom many times in the future. I also realize the gift of having sessions led by Sri Swami Satchidananda. His gentle voice and insight are invaluable. I hope to attend a retreat on-site at Yogaville in the future and meet all the wonderful people who call Yogaville home. — Diane Neal

This virtual retreat was a godsend during this pandemic. It was wonderful to be able to practice with like-minded yogis, and the content was varied and relevant. I felt supported and nurtured, and my practice at home has been infused with divine energy. I can’t thank you enough! — Maria Puente-Duany
