This immersion retreat is designed for all levels of yoga students who are comfortable learning about yoga practices such as chakra study (the study of the energy centers in the body), mudras (hand gestures), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), chanting (singing), and meditation (contemplative prayer). The heart of each retreat is one of the seven major energy centers in the body. This retreat explores Gods purpose for that particular aspect of your emotional and energetic being. Come and see how powerful yoga can be when it is centered, grounded, and focused on becoming more like Jesus in every part of your body, mind, energy, and spirit.
The group will be staying in St. Joseph's Retreat House. Each participant will have a private bedroom and bath. St. Joseph's also has a spacious kitchen and common room, and a front porch that overlooks the tranquil grounds of the monastery.
