Yoga Therapy Intensive Retreat

March 6 - 10 2019

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA 

Private yoga therapy and vichara sessions for five days in a row!  Whether you are working on physical issues, mental-emotional processes or all of the above, you will make huge strides forward.  Especially with doing daily Ashram practices with Swami Nirmalananda.

Your morning Guru Gita chant and meditation with Swami Nirmalananda leads into a yoga-full day.  In addition to your daily yoga class, you receive a daily yoga therapy session, plus a private vichara session (guided self-inquiry).  This combination of body and mind therapies work together to free you from pains and fears that have chased you for lifetimes.  Every afternoon includes a discussion of yoga’s teachings, plus your day ends with a chant & meditation with Swami Nirmalananda.  

You return home with a personalized set of yoga poses and, as well as a whole new sense of self and perspective on life — in only five days.  Enroll early as it is likely to fill up quickly.

Multi-Dimensional Healing

Your physical changes are profound and reliable, yet the inner transformation that gives you a new way of seeing is much more important.  Your own life and the world begin to look perfect, even though it is the same world that used to drive you crazy.
