Sivananda Essentials

Take home skills you can use in your daily life.

 

To live a healthy lifestyle at home, learn the basics while you’re on vacation!

If it’s your first time at the Yoga Retreat or you are new to Sivananda Yoga, take one of our Essentials Courses in meditation, positive thinking, or yoga foundations. Learn new skills, make new friends, and bring home a new yoga practice to improve your daily life.

Offered year-round, each course offers practical strategies to enhance your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. In just one workshop per day, learn to manage stress, live healthfully, and build new habits. You’ll also get one private yoga class per day for your course’s group, guided by an experienced senior teacher — and the rest of the day is yours for beach time, sunshine, and other ashram workshops.

Essentials of Yoga I
A perfect yoga for beginners course — and for those new to Sivananda Yoga.

Essentials of Yoga II
A great option for return guests who want to take their yoga practice to the next level.

Essentials of Yoga III
A more in-depth course for those looking to fine-tune their postures and dive deeper into yoga philosophy.

Essentials of Positive Thinking
Discover how to let go of negative thought patterns once and for all — so you can create the life you want.

Essentials of Meditation
The secret to balanced living and spiritual insight — refresh your inner discipline and build your own meditation practice for home.

 

While you are here …
  • Learn practical tools and techniques
  • Live in an authentic yogic environment
  • Experience deep relaxation and well-being
  • Enjoy the full integration of your body, mind, and spirit
  • Discover simple new ways to access ongoing vitality and peace in your life.
Experience a balance of course time and free time.

You’ll meet for one workshop each day — and still have plenty of time for the beach and other ashram programs and experiences.

Return home lighter, brighter, and ready to re-engage in everything you do with a positive outlook and strategies for self-care and personal growth.
