Ashtanga Yoga Liberation Retreat

July 2-6

Register for this program

Join us for this special time to contemplate and celebrate the many facets of liberation.  In presentations and discussions, diverse perspectives on the theme of liberation will be explored. The practices of Ashtanga (eight-limbed) and Hatha Yoga will help clear our minds and strengthen our wills as we seek deeper wisdom.  Classes include instruction in pranayama, meditation, and asana (beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels), chanting, dancing, and yaj├▒a (vedic fire ceremony).


This program is taught by Mount Madonna Center's Senior Yoga Teaching Staff.
