11th Annual Bhakti Yoga New Years’ Retreat / Akasha Ellis

December 27, 2019 - January 3, 2020

Come open your heart and expand your awareness for the New Year with yoga for your body, mind, and soul as Akasha and friends present a wonderful Bhakti experience you’ll never forget.

We will fill our days with Yoga and set our intention to heal ourselves, those around us and Mother Earth.

Mornings will begin with a group sadhana (kundalini yoga, chanting/meditation and pranayama) followed later by a guided Ashtanga/Vinyasa flow session.

Afternoons, we will meet once again to practice a restorative and/or Kundalini set that will leave our muscles relaxed, our hearts open and our minds and bodies ready for a restful night.

This retreat is open to all levels. There will be time to play, explore, relax and enjoy our surroundings.

The center features a hot tub, sauna, a spa to receive a massage, places to hike, a beautiful lake to swim and kayak, villages to explore for a nice day trip and plenty of wonderful spots to relax and become present.
