Vana Visosana~Nature Retreat
Jun
14
to Jun 16

Vana Visosana~Nature Retreat

Our Vana (“forest”) Visosana ("healing of a wound”) weekend retreat explores the role of Nature as the True Healer.

Yogis have always known (and science is catching on) that health and happiness is our natural state and everything we need to BE that is available to us within the natural world, in its natural state.

Time spent in Nature has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure, inflammation, cancer risk and stress. But there’s more to the story than just reducing exposure to air, noise and digital pollution.

Contact with the Earth and natural elements literally heals the body on a cellular level. Simply walking barefoot on the Earth's electron-laden surface reduces stress and inflammation, symptoms of being electron deficient. Rushing water generates negative ions, powerful antioxidants that also boost serotonin levels and brain oxygenation. And that’s just scratching the surface of Nature’s synergistic healing effects.

The Earth's healing powers don't just help us “feel better.” Nature biologically rejuvenates us in ways no manmade substance can. Yogic practices show us how to systematically harness these “miraculous” yet scientifically verifiable healing processes.

Join us to reverse the effects of modern living among the trees, beside a rushing stream… Not only will you breathe fresh mountain air; you will explore the amazing Yogic healing power of your breath—and so much more!

Highlights:

· Full immersion in a quiet, mountain woodland setting

· Complete digital detox (off-grid, no internet or cellular use)

· Workshops on Yoga practices that will guide you in actively absorbing Nature’s healing elements

· Presentations on how you can transform your home to be closer to Nature and provide natural health supports, even in the city

· Organic, wholefoods, plant-based vegan menu

· A hike to nearby waterfalls

· Free time to relax, listen to the birds and explore our woods and trails

Digital Detox Yoga Retreat
Jul
19
to Jul 21

Digital Detox Yoga Retreat

Long before there were scientific tools to prove their findings, Yogis knew the human body to be an ultra-sophisticated electromagnetic system, aligned with the Earth’s own bio-resonance. As modern technology proliferates, we find ourselves exposed to more and stronger manmade frequencies that disrupt the natural vibrations within and around us, negatively affecting all life-forms.

Here at Sat Manav Yoga Ashram, cellular networks and wi-fi signals don't reach us! We are off-grid and use electronic devices minimally. Your “digital detox” will begin as soon as you arrive!

But that is not all. Because the Yogis truly understood our electronic organism, they knew how to harmonize it when disturbed, using our inherent power of attention and physical manipulations. In today's world where digital and electronic “pollution” are seemingly unavoidable, this ability is essential to a happy and fulfilled life.

This retreat focuses on how to use Yogic practices, lifestyle, diet and even technology to minimize and counteract the physiological and psychological effects of manmade EMFs, paving the way to a “cleaner world” for the benefit of all beings.

Highlights:

  • Explore our true nature as human beings as the care takers of the planet and how we can align ourselves to that

  • Specific Yoga Intensives to ground and balance the body’s electrical system

  • Presentations on how to reduce and counteract EMFs in daily life

  • Guidance on Yogic practices and lifestyle to maintain digital balance

  • Meditation instruction to help you harness your attention mitigating digital distraction and dependency

  • Activities to reconnect with nature and life—the real “www”, the wonderful wider world
