DIY: Deepen It Yourself

August 24-27 2017:  Connection

Retreat Weekend

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

Cultivate your mastery of the practices that make the biggest differences.  Develop powerful yogic skills in handling your own body, mind and heart while diving deep into Consciousness. Beyond merely (DIY) doing it yourself, learn how to (DIY) Deepen It Yourself.  

Connect with your inner source of peace, love and joy, while you enjoy the connection with other yogis finding the same.  A sweet shared deepening creates a safe space, your starting point for profound realizations and breakthroughs.  Deepening your ability to connect with others comes automatically when you come from your innermost depths. Our four yoga-full days are dedicated to this!

Your in-depth study of specific poses includes detailed handouts that focus on how your personal progress.  Daily partner-pose processes give you a deeper understanding of how to do what you need to do.  Once you've helped your partner find and feel these moves in their body, it's easier to find in your body - plus they help you.

Under Swami Nirmalananda's guidance, your other practices also deepen.  The DIY long weekend includes the breadth and depth of the Svaroopa® practices:

   ▼ poses            ▼ yogic breathing practices       ▼ chanting        ▼ meditation     

   ▼ vichara          ▼ practical anatomy lessons      ▼ sutra study    ▼ and more.

You will blossom under the care and guidance of Swami Nirmalananda and one of our Teacher Trainers.  The familiar elements of Svaroopa® yoga reveal new depths, so you gain profound openings on every level: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
