The Winter Yoga Retreat week of Practical Yoga Psychology begins with the “definitions of yoga” referencing the text presented by Dr. Rishi Vivekananda and will systematically unfold as a way of life enhancing ones understanding of the whole personality.

Winter Yoga Retreat Overview
Winter Yoga Retreat Timetable

Knowledge of practical yoga psychology from the wisdom traditions systematically harmonise the entire personality on a deep internal level and external expression reflected in everyday life by living a life inspired by a yogic culture. 

The Winter Yoga Retreat is based on the practices & theory as described in the text Practical Yoga Psychology – Dr. Rishi Vivekananda to bring about a comprehensive understanding of the multi-faceted layers of the total being. With a deeper understanding of the self and self-observation of repeated patterns, automatic habits and reactions we can then decide how to rebuild or redirect our awareness in developing new pathways to connect and align with our inherent positive qualities. 

By committing to a sankalpa (firm intention) and dedication to the practices of the world’s wisdom traditions that offer valuable secrets for self-transformation, self-understanding, one is taken to another level of awareness and expression in life. 

The daily practices, group discussions and applied theory combined with ashram life of regularity, simplicity, personal disciple and self-motivation leads to connection with our inherent positive qualities. Conscious application in everyday life is summarized as living a more harmonious, fulfilling existence less affected or defeated by demands, duties and distractions.

Course Overview


A Mindful Lifestyle Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously program in that extra time is allocated after lunch to deepen relaxation and reclaim inner balance and direction during your personal retreat. Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of mindfulness.

What was beneficial about the retreat?

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Group sessions. Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle

During the Mindfulness Lifestyle Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
