The Radiance Retreat: Rasa Yoga + Ayurveda
October 15-22, 2023
If you’ve felt a call to connect with the roots of your practice...
Each day will begin with morning sadhana, an extended Rasa Yoga practice of mantra, mudra, meditation, pranayama, asana, myth, philosophy, and ritual. Some afternoons, we will come together again for Ayurvedic workshops and rejuvenating Rasa Yoga nectar practices. Each session is an integrated, carefully crafted experience to help each person embody the Yoga and Ayurvedic teachings and bring more radiance into every aspect of one’s life.
I made my first trip to India in 2003...
and have been back several times since. India holds a very special place in my heart and I am so excited to lead you on a journey to this sacred land. A trip to India is truly like no other and will live on in your heart forever.
All levels of students are welcome.
Practices will be tailored to and appropriate for all who attend!
No prior experience is required.
Local excursions are sprinkled throughout our stay to give you an opportunity to explore all of the beauty and charm that Kerala has to offer. We will take a traditional boat ride through the local backwaters, and visit nearby cities, markets and temples in order to gain a broader understanding and appreciation of the culture and context of the birthplace of these practices.
The retreat center where we’ll be hosted, Soma Manaltheeram, is an award winning Ayurvedic Spa set on the serenity of lush tropical gardens and a beachfront location. Here, you can benefit from traditional Ayurvedic therapies, one-on-one visits with on-site Ayurvedic practitioners, and a welcomed change of pace from your everyday life.
