Vows Retreat

July 7-11 2018

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

Indulging in five days of deep practice with Swami Nirmalananda, this retreat is exclusively for Vowed Members of the SvaroopaVidya Order.  Our newest Members will have completed three days of preparation in their Vows Prep Retreat, July 5-7, so we join them as they take their vows and then dive deeper with all of us.

Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram is an Ashram, which means it is a monastery.  Our residential facility is home to yogis who have taken vows of deep practice within our tradition, yet others have taken vows and live the same yogic lifestyle.

This retreat is for those who have already made their vows and relish the opportunity to practice and study together.   This shared commitment to spiritual upliftment is the foundation for our time together.

If you want to know about our Vowed Order, click here to learn about the different levels of vows for yogis' differing situations. Those who want to take vows must complete an application, with some levels also including an interview. Our Vows Preparation course, is a prerequisite for some levels, which is a phone course designed to help you clarify your commitment and your goal.
