Decelerator is a 5-day workshop that offers you the pause needed to gain a new viewpoint on your life – personally and at work. Participants will explore their personal and spiritual landscape using a blend of yogic practices and sessions inspired by leadership frameworks.

An of Era of Acceleration
People are under tremendous pressures today, perhaps greater than at any other time in history. Whatever the lifestyle, one seems to move too fast to digest the experiences that take place each day. The pressure felt is not exclusively because of work, but also due to the enormous amount of material that has to be assimilated to survive in a highly competitive environment.

The natural life rhythm simply cannot absorb the constant impact of living in a hyper-connected, media rich, turbulent environment.

Quite simply, people are destabilized and fatigued.

As catalysts engaged in creating a better world, we need energy to persevere. The true source of power and renewal is often buried to such a degree that support is needed to reclaim it. Once reclaimed we can realign with our intentions with new awareness and new strategies.

Cost: Private Room: $1390, Shared Room: $1125; $150 deposit (See our Cancellation Policy)

An of Era of Acceleration
People are under tremendous pressures today, perhaps greater than at any other time in history. Whatever the lifestyle, one seems to move too fast to digest the experiences that take place each day. The pressure felt is not exclusively because of work, but also due to the enormous amount of material that has to be assimilated to survive in a highly competitive environment.

The natural life rhythm simply cannot absorb the constant impact of living in a hyper-connected, media rich, turbulent environment.

Quite simply, people are destabilized and fatigued.

As catalysts engaged in creating a better world, we need energy to persevere. The true source of power and renewal is often buried to such a degree that support is needed to reclaim it. Once reclaimed we can realign with our intentions with new awareness and new strategies.

Searching for Silence in a Noisy World

Searching for Silence in a Noisy World @ Yasodhara Ashram

Aug 20 – 22

The massive bombardment of our senses from modern technology can drive us away from the true source of power and energy within. This retreat can help uncover your sense of inner knowing. Through times of silence and practices such as watching your mind, calming the breath, chanting mantras — and unplugging from electronic devices – you can become receptive to your interior landscape. Listen to your inner voices – what do they say? Which to follow and which to let go? Can you find a place of rest?

This retreat will include times of speaking as well as periods of intentional silence (mauna). Please be prepared to commit to a few days without electronic devices.

Cost: $500; $100 deposit (See our Cancellation Policy)
Includes shared accommodation, three meals daily, morning hatha, retreat/workshop, and evening satsang.

Yoga Development Course @ Yasodhara Ashram
