Esalen Weekend Retreat: Personal Renewal through the Practices of Yoga

January 18, 2019 - January 20, 2019

Taking the time to go on retreat is a wonderful spiritual practice. Often on retreat, we enter into the cradle of nature where the pranic force (life energy) is magnified and completely available for anyone who comes. In a similar way, the practitioners of yoga have journeyed for thousands of years to the ashram (yoga community) to engage the practices of meditation, pranayama (conscious breathing), chanting, and Hatha yoga. In Sanskrit, the ancient language of India, the word “shramas” means fatigue, and “ashram” means removal of fatigue. Quite simply, when we students of yoga gather in community and engage the various practices of yoga, we experience a sloughing off of accumulated energy, the removal of fatigue, and return home feeling renewed and refreshed. You are welcomed, on this bright spring weekend, to join us as we practice, heal, and play together.

Please have a minimum of three months of recent yoga experience, and please bring a yoga mat.
