Inspiring Teachers Retreat

January 17 - 19 2020

Lokananda, Downingtown PA               

Join our free retreat, full of yoga and laughter, along with precious time with other amazing yogis. By invitation only, this retreat celebrates our Inspiring Teachers, so named by their students who have come to Teacher Training programs.

Since March 2017, hundreds of different teachers have been honored by their students. We're inviting all these Inspiring Teachers to come, and hope they can all make it! 

In our retreat, we’ll do yoga together, chant and meditate, and talk about inspiring our students. Yummy meals and long recess timings make it a retreat, not a training, plus we’ll have some time at Shivaloka, to enjoy our new Shiva statues and gardens. Practicing together with each other and the time with Swami Nirmalananda makes the whole retreat both nurturing and profound.

While there is no tuition, your support is needed for the housing and meals, with a scholarship rate available. If you need help with airline travel, we may be able to use airline miles for part of your trip – Turn on Javascript! to ask. If you are able to offer airline miles or financial support to another yogi, Turn on Javascript! to offer.

Come early on Friday January 17 for the Half Day Workshop: Inspired & Uplifted with Swami Cathy (Shrutananda) Stillman starting at 2:00 pm.
