Making Life Meaningful

New Year's Retreat with
Swami Nirmalananda

December 30 2018 - January 2 2019

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

Make every moment count, from the time you get out of bed.  Choose what you will invest your time and energy into, both to give more and to get a bigger payoff.  Free yourself from the weights that drag you down, so you can rise to the occasion – every occasion, every day, every breath of life.  Ask the question, “Why are I here?”  Let Swami Nirmalananda help you answer the question, so you can set the tone for how you want to live in 2019.

Your New Year’s retreat includes Svaroopa® yoga poses, breathing practices, chanting and meditation with Swamiji.  Learn from her discourses on yoga’s ancient teachings.  Explore your choices and decision-making process through vichara (guided self-inquiry).  Gain new insight into your life and your being while you create a trajectory for the new year.

Svaroopa® Yoga

A Calling

The inner calling is the highest form of Grace, your own Self calling you to look for your own Self.
