Gentle Yoga to Reinvigorate Mind and Body

Sri Sri Yoga is a holistic way of energizing and integrating your mind, body and spirit.  This ancient knowledge made applicable for modern times can be easily added to your daily routine resulting in a lasting experience of your true inner power and overall well being.

The practice of yoga has been known for centuries to produce benefits in the areas of health, mental clarity and spiritual connection.  Sri Sri Yoga not only offers the benefits of traditional asanas (postures), but pranayamas (breathing techniques) and special meditations as well.

During the Sri Sri Yoga retreat that is taught in 10 hours spread over the weekend, certified teachers will train you to successfully practice these techniques at home so that every facet of your life will continue to improve. This retreat is ideal for all levels of yoga enthusiasts from absolute beginners to advanced practitioners.
