and connecting with kindred spirits are all part of the
experience. All scheduled activities are optional; be
guided from within, it’s your retreat!”

Guests can enjoy the waterside location at weekend retreats that offer yoga classes, yoga theory, afternoon meditations, evening satsang, vegetarian meals, and the space and time to enjoy nature. For those who simply need time alone for reflection, they are invited to come and just be, as programs are optional.

Themed retreats also occur throughout the year, such as Yoga for Runners, Yoga and Chi Gong, and Kripalu Yoga. And Thai yoga massage is available for an additional fee with any stay at Shanti Yoga Retreat.
