Sri Sri Yoga is a holistic and energizing practice, integrating mind, body, and spirit. The techniques of Hatha yoga are taught in a light and joyful, but thorough manner – useful and suitable for everyone from beginner to advanced practitioners.
Mindfulness & Meditation
Rejuvenate from within! Meditation offers deep rest for mind and body. We also teach complementary breathing exercises to still the mind. Here, you can participate in guided meditation, with time for questions and discussion.
Allow yourself to settle in for a soul-stirring session of community singing with an emphasis on both ancient chant and modern melodies. Kirtan happens nightly and is a community gathering for all interested guests, staff and volunteers.
The Center is situated on 380 acres of forested mountain. Two trails meander through the woods here, and several nearby trails offer experienced hikers miles of in-depth exploration. Majestic sights and clean mountain air await!
People around the world have used labyrinths for centuries as a walking metaphor for the pilgrim’s journey, as a way to open the mind to the present moment and stay centered. Our labyrinth allows for this inner journey in a unique, mountain setting.
The Fitness Room has free weights and weight machines, stationary bikes, and treadmills. Or, relax and detox in the Steam Room.
