Sat Manav Yoga

 

Sat Manav Yoga Weekend Retreat

Discover the mystical, yet scientifically provable, life enhancing aspects of Yoga! We will cover all the basics and then go beyond the conventional study of Yoga.

Our Sat Manav Yoga Weekend Retreat covers the 12 Principles of Yoga as outlined by our Gurus, current holders of the Sat Manav Yoga lineage, Yoga's oldest unbroken lineage. The study of the 12 Principles will fulfill your life whether you consider yourself a seasoned practitioner or someone simply searching for more.

The 12 Principles of Sat Manava Yoga as outlined by our Gurus, current holders of the Sat Manava Yoga lineage - Yoga's oldest unbroken lineage,  are a part of daily life at Hridaya and their practice and mastery is not only our aspiration, but also our greatest source of fulfillment.

Immersion into the Principle comes from in-depth teachings, clarifying examples, potent exercises, and practical application to take home with you. For the greatest benefit and full immersion, you can sign up for a yearly cycle at any time. The Yogis say the most auspicious time for life enhancement is always now.

However, each retreat is complete unto itself and offers an incredible amount of knowledge and experience. Join us for one, mix and match, or take your practice and life to new heights by establishing yourself in a monthly retreat cycle.

This retreat is not a "vacation" to step away from your life to de-stress, but an intensive experience for you to step into the life you long for! Don't wait! We keep our attendance at each retreat under 10 people to maximize your experience.
