Joy Embodied Yoga Retreat
Saturday November 11, 2023
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Join Jatila (ERYT-500) for a transformative, day-long retreat at Eldorado Mountain Yoga Ashram to deepen your connection to your innate, boundless joy!
This workshop is informed by the ancient yogic techniques and philosophies that guide our practices here at the ashram, in addition to modern insights on nervous system regulation and stress release. Through mindful movement, meditation, group discussion, creative artistry and more, we will explore the intersection of modern practices for well-being and the teachings of our lineage.
Throughout the retreat experience, we’ll cultivate a joyful environment through movement, reflection, and new connections that is sure to cascade into your daily life. You’ll learn powerful practices to support holistic well-being, reconnecting with the wisdom of your body and the vastness of your heart.
Our day will include a 90-minute yoga class, guided meditations, discussions/reflections on implementing mindfulness into our lives, a nourishing lunch, how to walk with inner joy and inner awareness*, art creations, and additional body-mind practices to embody the constant, inner state of joy we all have access to.
This retreat is open to all, regardless of previous yoga and/or meditation experience.
Led with gratitude by ashram resident acharya Jatila, ERYT-500.
Every third Sunday of the month: Next is Oct. 15th, 1-4pm
Please bring a lunch item to share! We begin our seva after a Sunday program with a community lunch.
Seva is a time-tested ancient yogic practice. For thousands of years first in the ancient East, selfless service (seva) has been at the forefront of ashram life and is what sustains a spiritual center of this kind.
Seva is a spiritual practice in itself. Seva is a practice of staying present, focused, and mindful with whatever you’re doing, without concern for how it’s going to benefit you.
When a person commits to selfless service at an ashram, they are not only helping sustain the center, but they are also putting in the necessary work to break down tensions inside which will lead to a more fruitful meditation practice. On the first Saturday of each month, the community comes together to do just that, and would love to have you join us! Contact Us
