USA: Integral Yoga Europe Pilgrimage to Satchidananda Ashram Yogaville

| 04-17, 2012

Yogaville – Virginia | 16 – 24 September, 2012

Fulfil your heart’s desire to visit Gurudev’s Ashram in Virginia, USA with a group of devoted and like-minded Integral Yogis from UK and Europe. Rev. Padma Priya is leading a group to the Ashram where you will experience daily meditation in the LOTUS Temple, heartfelt prayer and communion at Gurudev’s Mahasamádhi, receiving darshana at Gurudev’s home and enjoying all the rich benefits of the Ashram life.

Flying to the US on the 16th, arriving at the Ashram on 17th, the group will take 2 whole days to acclimatise and enjoy the fullness of all the Ashram has to offer. Then on 19th we will begin a 5 day retreat programme called “A Journey Through The Koshas”.

You will have five blissful days totally dedicated to experiencing the depths of your being. In the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere of Yogaville, Rev. Padma, one of Swami Satchidananda’s senior devotes from Europe, will lead you in a deep exploration of consciousness through the koshas (layers of our being or levels of consciousness) and the chakras (energy centres).

You will explore the five koshas (the physical body, energetic body, psycho-emotional level, the deeper mind or wisdom body, and the bliss body) and gain clear understanding and deep experience of how these layers offer profound keys to wellbeing – physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Each day of this five-day retreat we will be understanding and experiencing each of the koshas in turn – through Hatha Yoga, pránáyáma and meditation – not just learning about these levels of consciousness, but actually experiencing them in your own being.

Who Can Attend

The programme is open to all students of Yoga (beginners through to advanced practitioners, including teachers) from all over Europe and is an ideal programme for anyone really wanting to experience themselves on all levels through the study and practice of Yoga. The pilgrimage will be enriched by the participation of yogis from the US who will be joining us for the 5 day retreat.

Rev. Padma has asked for the retreat fee to be only $108 – this is a very special concession that the Ashram has granted for Europeans only – and you will also receive 20% discount on accommodation charges. There will be a group flying together from London, so if you would like to be included in that air ticket, please let Rev. Padma know.
This is the 3rd part of the series of pilgrimages that Rev. Padma has been leading called “In The Footsteps Of The Saints”. This time, the pilgrims will be following Sri Gurudev’s footsteps to America. If your heart calls you to join us, please email Rev. Padma on or contact the Ashram bookings department direct on this page
