Body, Bliss & Beyond Retreat

December 5-11 2021

With Gurudevi Nirmalananda and Swami Samvidaananda

In La Jolla, California

Join Gurudevi in sunny San Diego for our winter retreat.  While India is still off-limits for us, we’re returning to our USA roots, where Gurudevi taught for 25 years, laying the foundation for what our Ashram is today. 

For a full week of practices, we’ll do blissful poses, blissful chanting and blissful meditations.  This trifecta of yoga technologies will open up your body and mind like never before.  In addition, Gurudevi will explain the process as you go through it, giving the classical teachings that describe yoga’s goal as bliss and beyond bliss.   

Leisurely meals and recess timings are an important part of the retreat.  Plus we have the Pacific Ocean right outside our window, for beautiful views and easy access.  The company of the other yogis is guaranteed to magnify your bliss.  Register early as space is limited. 

COVID Care:  We will be following the up-to-date CDC recommendations as well as state and local regulations, and will keep you advised about them.  By now, you have the necessary skills to manage your mask and other needs, should they be required.  It’s a small inconvenience in order to have such quality time together.
