Sat Manava 12 Principles of Yoga Retreat: Dynamic Asana (pose) Intensive
Sep
28
to Sep 30

Sat Manava 12 Principles of Yoga Retreat: Dynamic Asana (pose) Intensive

We are under the pressure of gravity, the physical stresses of life and our environment 24/7. This results in mental and physical dis-ease, premature aging and unnecessary suffering! The Yogis saw this result and deemed it unnecessary and unacceptable!

To reverse this process we have to, literally, reverse. When organs are displaced, under the constant pressure of downward movement they cannot function optimally. Every bodily process starts in the brain and travels through the spinal column. The spine is constantly compressed. As this builds, nerves pinch and compromise the functionality of the body on all levels.

Back bending and inverted Asanas (postures) are the key. When we bend back we not only release the pressure but we pull the organs, muscles, ligaments and vertebrae the other way. What was compressed is now released, what was tight is now loose. When we invert we reverse the pressure of gravity entirely. This flushes and exercises the entire vascular system. Another bodily function that all other functions depend on!

When we are bending back, or upside down this also reverses our view. Our thoughts slow, the mind calms, creating a very conducive internal environment for meditation. When the body can release, so can the mind.

The Asanas of reversal yield the highest benefits, out of all Asanas, to practitioners looking to attain the greatest levels of health and well being. Do not seek to just avoid, contain or maintain bodily conditions. Reverse them entirely!

Our retreat includes:

  • 3 hours of teachings, application, and discussion on Asana
  • 8 hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives
  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs
  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

Sat Manava 12 Principles of Yoga Retreat: Ulta Sadhana "Yogic Reversal of Negativity"
Aug
31
to Sep 2

Sat Manava 12 Principles of Yoga Retreat: Ulta Sadhana "Yogic Reversal of Negativity"

Positive experiences are what bring us joy and fulfillment. We seek them for ourselves and we seek to give them to others. Today, negativity is a, seemingly unavoidable, part of life. But this does not have to be.

Yogis are the masters of reality, not by creating their own, but by accessing the actual reality that is available to all of us, all the time. The principle of negativity has a finite potential. Destruction, death, decay, all have an end point. But the principle of positivity: growth, evolution, improvement, does not. This ultimately proves that, in reality, all negativity is impermanent.

In order to change an action we have to apply an equal, yet opposing reaction. This is Ulta Sadhana, consciously applying the reverse to our negative actions, emotions and emanations in all of life's scenarios. Ulta Sadhana is the means, the method and the mentality to rid your life of negativity, right here, right now, reversing every negative situation into a positive experience.

Come join us for a weekend steeped in reversing destruction, decay or death and enhancing growth, improvement or life: Ulta Sadhana!

Our retreat includes:

  • 3 hours of teachings, application, and discussion on Ulta Sadhana
  • 8 hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives
  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs
  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

In the ancient tradition of Sat Manav Yoga, Raksha Bandhan honors the deep bond that exists between humanity and all other beings. Commonly celebrating the bond between brother and sister, Yoga takes it one step further, recognizing we are all linked by our common desire to experience and give fulfillment. 
Simply put, if we can learn how to enhance and extend life for ourselves all beings can thrive and experience fulfillment. This message is the true and original purpose of Yoga. 
This event is dedicated to that. 

Event highlights:
Rakhi (bracelet) tying blessing ceremony performed by our Gurus

Each festival at Sat Manav Yoga Ashram is a rare opportunity and offering to the public to step out of daily life and travel back in time to a pure Yoga Hermitage reminiscent of ancient India.

The highlight of the event is an afternoon discourse and empowerment given by Sri Bhagavan and Sri Mirabai, gurus of Sat Manav Yoga Ashram. They give public treachings only once a year. Full of powerful insight, colorful analogies and irrefutable logic, this discourse on the intention of Yoga lays out the missing ingredients in our modern view, shedding vast light on the meaning of life and the direction we should be looking to. 

Suggested Donation: $90/full day, $45/half day
This event is put on by the residents of the hermitage as an offering to invite any people of any faith or belief to participate. The festivals are donation based reflecting the value of time and energy put into each event, however no one is turned away due to lack of funds. We hope to share this universal message with all!

Sat Manava 12 Principles of Yoga Retreat: Pranayama "Expanding and Extending the Life Force"
Aug
10
to Aug 12

Sat Manava 12 Principles of Yoga Retreat: Pranayama "Expanding and Extending the Life Force"

True happiness and fulfillment comes from life enhancing experiences. All suffering comes from life diminishing, life being taken away. We all want more experience, more happiness; more life!

The breath is the vehicle of life. We can survive weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without breathing. The practice of Pranayama is the perfection of breathing, the methodology of expanding life. Pran is the “life force” or energy that animates all life. Ayama means “expansion” or “extension”. Pranayama is the “expansion and extension of the life force”.

Through directed attention, deepening awareness and dynamic exercises Pranayama expands and extends the gross, subtle and energetic aspects of breathing, expanding the Pran and extending our experience of living. Resulting in the expansion and extension of fulfillment!

Join us for this weekend retreat and learn seldom revealed secrets of Pranayama. It is the most powerful Yogic practice, purifying the body and the mind, freeing us from all levels of toxicity and filling us with LIFE!

Through Pranayama we have the power to expand life, benefiting ourselves, the world and all beings!

Our retreat includes:

  • 3 hours of teachings, application, and discussion on Pranayama
  • 8 hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives
  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs
  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

Sat Manava 12 Principles Yoga Retreat: Samyama "Pure Yogic Meditation"
Jul

to Jul 15

Sat Manava 12 Principles Yoga Retreat: Samyama "Pure Yogic Meditation"

Samyama is the state of intense focused attention that allows us to meditate and be absorbed in reality, while concentrating on all manner of activity. It can be practiced at all times, in all places, forever enhancing our lives through the clarity, insights and knowledge gained in this state defined as “concentration, meditation and absorption”.

Samyama is our greatest power, where all abilities come from. All of our attainments, achievements and successes come through varying levels of Samyama. To become a master of Samyama is to become a master of success. Samyama is the supreme methodology Yogis used to gain knowledge of everything, including the true nature of a human being.

Samyama is the state of intense focused attention that allows us to meditate and be absorbed in reality, while concentrating on all manner of activity. It can be practiced at all times, in all places, forever enhancing our lives through the clarity, insights and knowledge gained in this state defined as “concentration, meditation and absorption”.

The third chapter of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, one quarter of the text, is dedicated to Samyama. This illustrates the essential nature of Samyama in the practice of Yoga, the science of uniting with reality.

In our retreat we will reveal the true meaning of Samyama. Discover the latent innate power we all possess of extreme focused attention! Samyama is the original, unadulterated power of manifestation. Manifest what we all desire most: to be fulfilled and offer that experience to all beings!

  • 3 hours of teachings, application and discussion on Samyama
  • 8 hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives

Sat Manava Hatha Yoga Retreat
Jul
6
to Jul 8

Sat Manava Hatha Yoga Retreat

Traditionally, the physical practices of Yoga were practiced simultaneously with meditation, and Pranayam (breath work). 

Sat Manava Yoga takes such an approach. Fulfilling the original intention of Yoga we bring it all together in balance and application, giving you the deepest experience of fulfillment through practice. 

Sat Manava practitioners begin each day with an intensified Asana practice, coupled with Pranayam and meditation. The body is empty, the mind is quiet, the intention for the whole day can be established. It is the ideal time for purification and building of the Pran (life force). 

On this retreat, we focus on Sat Manava's morning practice, with the specific intention of assisting you in establishing, or deepening, a consistent, dedicated morning Sadhana (practice). Daily practice is essential to the realization of our true purpose as human beings: to experience and emanate fulfillment for the benefit of all beings. We offer:

  • 3 hours of teachings, application, and discussion on Yogi life and Hatha Yoga practice
  • 8 hours of Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensives
  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs
  • Pradakshina-a meditative hike, circumambulating our Guru's practice temple, a traditional practice to receive the emanations of accomplished practitioners (optional)

Tarka "Yogic Reasoning and Rationale" Festival

Tarka is the inner debate inquiring into the true, absolute nature of something. It is the application of in depth logical thinking that has us asking questions, that lead to answers, that lead to more questions, and, finally, arrive at the Truth. The answer where no question arises. Reality. The answer provable at all times and all places, by our own experience. Irrefutable, non-debatable, rationally provable truth!

We are all born wanting fulfillment, we seek it our whole lives. Application of Tarka, pure reason and rationale, leads us to the truth of how to find true fulfillment. Imagine a world governed by compassion and irrefutable logic, where the irrational destruction of our bodies, our fellow species and the planet no longer exists!

Through discourse, discussion, contemplation and application we will examine, discover and harness the life changing, world changing power of Tarka: intense reason and rationale.
