New Year Retreat Program 

New Year's Eve Program 

Start the new year by rejuvenating and revitalizing your body, mind, and spirit through the practices of yoga and meditation in an authentic ashram setting.

Create self-spaciousness to reflect on the year that has passed, respecting what you have learned and what you have achieved in 2018, but not discounting the so-called setbacks as these are the very fabric of life and potential for positive change.

We will explore the theme of sankalpa otherwise known as resolve, yoga philosophy, guided meditations, special yoga classes, mid night havan (fire ceremony), chanting and a kirtan concert. 

Learn how to set a resolve, and how to overcome the obstacles that may stand in the way of fulfilling ones resolve. 

  • Your life purpose – sankalpa, reduces doubt, and insecurities and increases personal meaningful values.
  • Your life purpose – sankalpa is like the light on the other shore beckoning you to move in that direction aligning both your inner and outer aspirations.
  • Your purpose – sankalpa strengthens the willpower to focus on what is most important for igniting creative planning and positive thinking.   

Join us and others for this auspicious celebration to joyously welcome in the new year with the lighting of a personal sankalpa candle.  Many candles of sincere intent illuminate the path of peace, meaningfulness and actions valuable for yourself and others.  

You can make this year what you want it to become. Every year comes like a blank whiteboard with nothing written on it, and it is you who writes on the blank board with a pen. You should be aware of what you write on your board, on this clean board which you begin today. Your aspiration should be to know what is being written and to ensure that you write the best story this year.
Swami Niranjananada 
May this bright New Year’s Day and all the succeeding days of this year and all the future years bring you success, peace, prosperity and happiness.

A Yoga 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 awareness.

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