Authentic Teachings for a Modern Perspective
Ancient lessons for mind and spirit from Indian and Tibetan spiritual masters come to life through a new fresh and accessible approach to Meditation, Yoga and Tantra. Explore the spiritual traditions of Yoga, Meditation, and Tantra practices. We assist spiritual seekers by combining traditional lessons with original teaching methods in order to shed light on the esoteric practices of truths forgotten.
Many people who practice yoga today understand it as merely physical exercise that tones and strengthens the body. The true experience delves deeper into the ever-changing and growing depths of the mind and spirit. This ancient practice can reveal inner depths you were not aware of. Somananda Yoga Retreats encourage and facilitate full immersion in the powerful energies of Meditation, Yoga and Higher Tantra, thus transforming individuals in such a way that progress can be measured and verified. The Yoga University provides well-organized instruction for practical usage of these teachings. The restful and inspiring atmosphere at the retreats transforms the varying levels of Yoga teachings with motivation for both groups and individuals. You will attend spiritual lectures, group meditations and discussions and find not only considerable opportunity to evolve to a higher spiritual plane but also answers to life’s questions and plenty of new friends.
Yoga Education and Training
Every Somananda Yoga Retreat offers a variety of instruction levels designed to cater to individuals from beginners to experienced practitioners. Whatever level you have achieved in your study, you will find suitable teachings and practice groups. We offer a 24 level Yoga University structure to best serve everyone on their journey to spiritual growth.
Yoga beginners experience a gentle introduction.
