You can expect to learn yoga and tantra in it’s totality, how to incorporate the age old wisdom of yoga and tantra in your daily day to day life, our approach is make people know that yoga is not limited to the practice of Asana (physical postures) only, and it dose not start and finish on your yoga mat. The retreat will be lead by Gyanmitra Saraswati a senior and experienced teacher from the tradition of Bihar School of Yoga / Satyananda Yoga.
We welcome yogis of all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced practioners. Yoga retreats are not just for the yogi who practices every day and can do advance asanas (physical postures). Our retreats offer opportunities for growth and new experience, no matter how much time you have spent on your mat. It is suggest to keep an open mind and try out practices that might be new to you.
