Program Details

For all levels.

In the company of supportive community, experience a life-changing retreat skillfully guided by longtime practitioner and teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll.

Ancient yoga texts speak of two lights within the body: the moon in the crown of the head, symbolizing the rational self, and the sun in the pelvis, representing the emotions. The conflict between these two forces causes all of life’s pain and suffering. Through postures and pranayama, the yogi converts sun energy into yogagni, the fire of yoga. This fire rises up and dissolves the moon back into the witness, the seed of the self. When the sun and moon disappear, the yogi becomes the whole universe.

This transformational retreat includes

  • Plenty of asana and pranayama practice
  • Esoteric teachings that make a lot of sense
  • Information and techniques to deepen your practice when you return home
  • Hope and inspiration for your spiritual journey.
