Loving-kindness Yoga Retreat

Embrace your authentic self in a supportive and transformational environment through the practice of yoga, meditation, and periods of social silence. Yoga sessions will include both active sessions that promote strength and flexibility and restorative sessions that foster relaxation and mindfulness. Meditation sessions will focus on the metta bhavana (loving-kindness meditation), which opens our hearts to ourselves and others. Whether you are just learning yoga or meditation, or have been practicing for many years, the instruction will be tailored to your level.

The weekend will also offer time for artistic exploration, walks on Aryaloka’s beautiful grounds, and simply relaxing with friends. Participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.

Please register early as these retreats fill up fast.


At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
