Tarka "Yogic Rationale and Reasoning" Weekend Retreat
May
18
to May 20

Tarka "Yogic Rationale and Reasoning" Weekend Retreat

Join us for our first all new, weekend retreat!

Tarka is the inner debate inquiring into the true, absolute nature of something. It is the application of in depth logical thinking that has us asking questions, that lead to answers, that lead to more questions, and, finally, arrive at the Truth. The answer where no question arises. Reality. The answer provable at all times and all places, by our own experience. Irrefutable, non-debatable, rationally provable truth!

The Yogis took this power we all innately have and aimed it at answering the most important questions in life. Our weekend retreat will focus on using pure Tarka, beyond all emotion, public opinion, social norms, etc. to answer what is the true potential of a human life. We are all born wanting fulfillment, we seek it our whole lives. Application of Tarka, pure reason and rationale, leads us to the truth of how to find true fulfillment. Imagine a world governed by compassion and irrefutable logic, where the irrational destruction of our bodies, our fellow species and the planet no longer exists!

Through discourse, discussion, contemplation and application we will examine, discover and harness the life changing, world changing power of Tarka: intense reason and rationale.

Our retreat includes:

  • 5 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Yogi life and Tarka

  • 3 ½ hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs

  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

  • Traditional Yogic ceremonies-outer experiences that reflect and enhance our inner goals

  • See our complete retreat schedule

All-inclusive Weekend Retreat price: $349. Includes all programs, meals and 2 nights’ accommodation (singles share a room; couples get a private room). Private rooms are available for singles—contact us for price and availability.

Yoga Mimamsa "Yogic Philosophy of Life and Living" Weekend Retreat
Jun
22
to Jun 24

Yoga Mimamsa "Yogic Philosophy of Life and Living" Weekend Retreat

Yoga Mimamsa is the philosophical result of the investigation of reality. It is the Yogis realization from using Tarka, “reasoning and rationale” to examine themselves, the world and the incredible opportunity of human life.

The Yogis saw that all beings have a beneficial purpose that supports life around them. Yoga Mimamsa is the philosophy, the view, the motivation and the method, to live our intended purpose. Imagine an existence where, through your natural everyday activity, you benefit all beings!

Our Retreat will expose, elaborate and expound on Yoga Mimamsa, the knowing and application of how to live as true humane beings! Do not miss this extraordinary opportunity to hear, apply and experience the Yogis greatest contribution to the world.

Join us for one of the most exciting and revealing Yoga Retreats you will ever experience! To take advantage of the lunar movement towards the light we usually host out retreats on the weekend closest to the new moon. To honor the Summer Solstice we have made an exception!

Our retreat includes:

  • 5 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Yogi life and Yoga Mimamsa

  • 3 ½ hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs

Samyama "Pure Yogic Meditation" Weekend Retreat
Jul
13
to Jul 15

Samyama "Pure Yogic Meditation" Weekend Retreat

Samyama is our greatest power, where all abilities come from. All of our attainments, achievements and successes come through varying levels of Samyama. To become a master of Samyama is to become a master of success. Samyama is the supreme methodology Yogis used to gain knowledge of everything, including the true nature of a human being.

Samyama is the state of intense focused attention that allows us to meditate and be absorbed in reality, while concentrating on all manner of activity. It can be practiced at all times, in all places, forever enhancing our lives through the clarity, insights and knowledge gained in this state defined as “concentration, meditation and absorption”.

The third chapter of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, one quarter of the text, is dedicated to Samyama. This illustrates the essential nature of Samyama in the practice of Yoga, the science of uniting with reality.

In our retreat we will reveal the true meaning of Samyama. Discover the latent innate power we all possess of extreme focused attention! Samyama is the original, unadulterated power of manifestation. Manifest what we all desire most: to be fulfilled and offer that experience to all beings!

Our retreat includes:

  • 5 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Yogi life and Samyama

  • 3 ½ hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs

  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

Pranayama "Expanding and Extending the Life Force" Weekend Retreat
Aug

to Aug 12

Pranayama "Expanding and Extending the Life Force" Weekend Retreat

True happiness and fulfillment comes from life enhancing experiences. All suffering comes from life diminishing, life being taken away. We all want more experience, more happiness; more life!

The breath is the vehicle of life. We can survive weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without breathing. The practice of Pranayama is the perfection of breathing, the methodology of expanding life. Pran is the “life force” or energy that animates all life. Ayama means “expansion” or “extension”. Pranayama is the “expansion and extension of the life force”.

Through directed attention, deepening awareness and dynamic exercises Pranayama expands and extends the gross, subtle and energetic aspects of breathing, expanding the Pran and extending our experience of living. Resulting in the expansion and extension of fulfillment!

Join us for this weekend retreat and learn seldom revealed secrets of Pranayama. It is the most powerful Yogic practice, purifying the body and the mind, freeing us from all levels of toxicity and filling us with LIFE!

Through Pranayama we have the power to expand life, benefiting ourselves, the world and all beings!

Our retreat includes:

  • 5 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Yogi life and Pranayama

  • 3 ½ hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

Ulta Sadhana "Yogic Reversal of Negativity" Weekend Retreat
Aug
31
to Sep 2

Ulta Sadhana "Yogic Reversal of Negativity" Weekend Retreat

Positive experiences are what bring us joy and fulfillment. We seek them for ourselves and we seek to give them to others. Today, negativity is a, seemingly unavoidable, part of life. But this does not have to be.

Yogis are the masters of reality, not by creating their own, but by accessing the actual reality that is available to all of us, all the time. The principle of negativity has a finite potential. Destruction, death, decay, all have an end point. But the principle of positivity: growth, evolution, improvement, does not. This ultimately proves that, in reality, all negativity is impermanent.

In order to change an action we have to apply an equal, yet opposing reaction. This is Ulta Sadhana, consciously applying the reverse to our negative actions, emotions and emanations in all of life's scenarios. Ulta Sadhana is the means, the method and the mentality to rid your life of negativity, right here, right now, reversing every negative situation into a positive experience.

Come join us for a weekend steeped in reversing destruction, decay, or death and enhancing growth, improvement, or life: Ulta Sadhana!

Our retreat includes:

  • 5 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Yogi life and Ulta Sadhana

  • 3 ½ hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs

  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

Asana "Inverting and Back Bending Postures to Reverse Bodily Conditions" Weekend Retreat
Oct
12
to Oct 14

Asana "Inverting and Back Bending Postures to Reverse Bodily Conditions" Weekend Retreat

We are under the pressure of gravity, the physical stresses of life and our environment 24/7. This results in mental and physical dis-ease, premature aging and unnecessary suffering! The Yogis saw this result and deemed it unnecessary and unacceptable!

To reverse this process we have to, literally, reverse. When organs are displaced, under the constant pressure of downward movement they cannot function optimally. Every bodily process starts in the brain and travels through the spinal column. The spine is constantly compressed. As this builds, nerves pinch and compromise the functionality of the body on all levels.

Back bending and inverted Asanas (postures) are the key. When we bend back we not only release the pressure but we pull the organs, muscles, ligaments and vertebrae the other way. What was compressed is now released, what was tight is now loose. When we invert we reverse the pressure of gravity entirely. This flushes and exercises the entire vascular system. Another bodily function that all other functions depend on!

When we are bending back, or upside down this also reverses our view. Our thoughts slow, the mind calms, creating a very conducive internal environment for meditation. When the body can release, so can the mind.

The Asanas of reversal yield the highest benefits, out of all Asanas, to practitioners looking to attain the greatest levels of health and well being. Do not seek to just avoid, contain or maintain bodily conditions. Reverse them entirely!

Our retreat includes:

  • 5 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Yogi life and Asana Practice

  • 3 ½ hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs

  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)
