New Year's Retreat 

December 30 2024 - January 1 2025

Lokananda Retreat Center, Downingtown PA

Also available Online.

You’re getting ready for a new year. A fresh start. A chance for renewal and recommitment. From a deep place inside springs the newness of life. That source is your own Self.

Iccha-shaktir uma-kumari. – Shiva Sutras 1.13

In every moment, the yogi enjoys the newness of life, the gift of the Goddess.

Gurudevi Nirmalananda explains, “I love the new year. It holds such promise, like the seed of that will grow, flower and fruit. It’s a time to celebrate life and the turning of a cycle. It’s time to plan how to make the most of the coming year. Let’s do it together!”

In this retreat, savor the profound practices of Svaroopa® yoga. It includes asana (yoga poses), chanting, meditation, teaching talks and more. Gurudevi leads you through deep inner experiences that transform your sense of self. Discover your eternal expansiveness. This retreat propels you into your highest potential for the year ahead and beyond.
