Annual Yoga Retreats

Timeless Traditions at Mount Madonna

In 1973, before Mount Madonna Center was founded, a group of students began coming together in retreat to study the classical traditions of Aṣhṭānga Yoga under the guidance of Baba Hari Dass. Babaji shared his wisdom and time freely, imparting a vast body of yoga methods and philosophy. As a community of volunteers and teachers, we continue to share these teachings.

Our annual yoga retreats provide a rich opportunity for personal growth, for learning yogic methods, and for experiencing the well-being of body, mind and spirit in connecting with oneself and other like-minded individuals. We welcome you to join us as we tread this ancient path to peace!

Going Deeper: A Focused Meditation Retreat

Going Deeper: A Focused Meditation Retreat

This small group experience is devoted to a deeper level of practice for people who have some knowledge of meditation and yoga. To support the mind in turning inward, we utilize a simple diet, the observance of silence, and a cave-like atmosphere of seclusion. Each day includes several hours devoted to spiritual practices (sādhana) created specifically for this retreat by Baba Hari Dass. The sādhana includes meditation, prāṇāyāma, and āsana. Devotional rituals, chanting, and spiritual stories also form part of this special experience. Enrollment is limited, please register early.
