Just in time for Spring: Open your heart and rejuvenate your body with a weekend retreat in peaceful surroundings. 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 deepens our loving connection with 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.

Yoga sessions will be taught by Judy Wall, who has been teaching yoga for 20 years. Judy specializes in gentle and restorative yoga and is working toward her 500 hour Yoga Therapy certification through Yoga Fit.

Meditation sessions will be led by Shrijnana, a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order who has been meditating for 25 years.

* 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.* Retreat 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.
