Retreats 2016-12-27T09:30:48+00:00

Yoga Retreat Registration has now started for December 4th for the Orlando Area.

Registration for Sunday, October 16th, 2016 Full Day Yoga Retreat from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm at Lake Center Yoga in Longwood is now available below! The retreat topic is: GEMINI – From Static to Magic, with Sri Ekan at Lake Center Yoga.

To make these full and half retreats a more powerful experience on those weekends come to Friday night meditation, a yoga class on Saturday at the studio or at home and review your homework from the previous retreat if attended. Write down insights and bring with you. The whole idea of these retreats is to take our yoga practice to a whole new level the more you put into it the more you get out of it. Transformation needs to happen on all levels not just filling the intellect with information and practicing poses for a workout. Our goal is Self-realization.

Early Registration

These wonderful retreat days offer you an opportunity to retreat from the rush, rush busyness, over-scheduling and stress inherent in modern life to a whole day of fully nurturing, exploring and settling into your own Being. Doesn’t that sound good?

These retreats work on more subtle yogic levels over the course of the whole day and will shift your yoga practice to a new level!

Here is what you will enjoy~


Full Day Yoga Retreat Description

Centering and Invocation

We begin the retreats by chanting a Mantra connected to the theme to center and open to receive the powerful re-calibration of energy that happens during the day.


You will receive a short introduction regarding the subject of the retreat followed by an extended yoga practice.  In this morning practice you will go slower and deeper than ordinary yoga classes. You will have time to pause, ask questions, and receive more adjustments.  You will gain a clearer insight into how the body and subtler levels of energies integrate as new dimensions of your Being are revealed. The 1/2 day yoga practice will be shortened quite a bit.

Awakened Energy

New dimensions of awakening are common as consciousness is awakened through the power of  self-inquiry through insight and yogic techniques.  This energy rises and is refined into a more expanded energy. This is a great healing force for all the systems and energy pathways of your body mind and spirit.  These whole day retreats give us a chance to get in touch with our own dharma — that which flows naturally.  The process of Self-realization allows this process to happen so we can more fully express the innate talents and gifts to help the world.

The Sattvic (Pure) Vegetarian Feast

Nirgunanvathi cooks up the most amazing pure, from the garden vegetarian lunch which is delivered right to Lake Center Yoga.  In this way, you never have to leave the energy field of the retreat and the experience you are in the process of creating, to get in your car and drive to a restaurant for a lower vibration meal.

After Lunch

We will look into our individual horoscopes and have some time for questions and answers.  We then will watch a discourse from other astrologers related to the subject matter.  This a great time for deeper reflection into yourself.

Afternoon Yoga Practice

After the discourse, we will add some yoga asana’s to prepare us to sit for the final practices and self discovery techniques.  There will be hip opening, twisting and restorative type poses followed by some specific practices geared toward the subject matter.  This is such a great opportunity to learn some simple but very effective techniques to guide us to be more in harmony with our natural energies. They connect us on a deeper level to the heavenly bodies and universal energy.  You will get handouts or emails after the retreats to give you guidance on how to have a continued practice of awakening and study.


The final practices will bring the whole day together. They will take you to a deep space inside that can be brought with you back into everyday  life.  This magical day is followed by a delicious treat.  You will float home completely transformed on so many levels!

Benefits of the Yoga Retreat Day

If a full day of yoga seems daunting or long to you, or you are thinking you just need to “rest” on your Sunday off to recharge yourself, don’t worry.  It is not a full day of asana yoga practice only. This is a time to do some asana practice but the emphasis is on deeper levels than you can normally go to in normal yoga home practice or classes.

These retreats are designed to balance and energize you every step of the way. Simply relaxing cannot do this on its own.  You will leave with more energy, more zest for life and more expanded awareness than you can imagine.  You will take away an experience of higher energy and more clarity that will alter and enhance everything in your life.  Warning:  You may get hooked!  Many people attending have now made these Yoga Retreat Days a part of their lifestyle every six weeks. They realize that a full day of investing in them-selves is the best investment they can have.

Come and give yourself this gift along with meeting and spending the day with other great people interested in evolving to their highest potential!
