MahaShivaratri Yoga Festival

  • Hridaya Hermitage

Deeply rooted in Yogic tradition Shiva has always been the iconic symbol of Spiritual fervor and intensity for Yogis. The auspiciousness of this time identifies the power of Shiva that exists inherently within, removing fear and doubt that hinder progress on the path of Yoga while shedding light and clarity on the ultimate purpose of Life. This is a day to celebrate the wisdom of the Yogis like no other! We hope to see you there:)  

Each festival at Hridaya hermitage is a rare opportunity and offering to the public to step out of daily life and travel back in time to a pure Yoga Hermitage reminiscent of ancient India.
Hridaya (spiritual heart) hermitage (reclusive place of practice) is home of practicing Yogis and Gurus Sri Bhagavan VaShi Baba where the ancient teachings of VaShi Yoga thrive.
Aside from the public presentations that are held once a month, Bhagavan and his wife Sri Mirabai concentrate there efforts for the benefit of all beings on intense spiritual Sadhana (practice) and in depth teachings and guidance for the disciples of Hridaya.
The highlight of each event offered is an afternoon discourse and empowerment given by Sri Bhagavan. Full of powerful insight, colorful analogies and irrefutable logic, this discourse on the intention of Yoga lays out the missing ingredients in our modern view, shedding vast light on the meaning of life and the direction we should be looking to. 
Other highlights of the day include
