Lila Yoga® Mindfulness Retreat
June 24–26, 2022
Resuscitate, Replenish, Transcend & Transform
Discover the power of compassionate awareness by bringing mindfulness into your daily life. During this nourishing retreat, we will embrace our vulnerabilities and allow them to safely guide us into expansive ease. By practicing the art of open attention, Mindfulness Lila Yoga provides a complete holistic approach to a healthy, balanced body and mind. Through the ancient Indian practices of asana (yogic postures), pranayama (yogic breathing), chanting, satsang gathering, meditation, and quiet-present time, we are able to open to our greatest awareness and learn the keys to joy, patience, peace, and eternal wisdom.
Many of us have been in survival mode for the past two years. Let’s take this opportunity to replenish.
“Lila Yoga®️ explores the possibility of living in brilliant ease by rejuvenating self-trust, awakening energy pathways within the body, and uniting them with the currents of energy around us. Using the body as a tool to understand the mind, Lila Yoga®️ is a philosophy in motion—a meditation in motion.” –Erica Kaufman
