“Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature as you nourish mind, body & soul on a Lifepath Yoga, Ayurveda & Hiking Retreat”

Join us for a nurturing Autumn Retreat in the heart of the Pocono Mountains at the Himalayan Institute Retreat Center.

In this program, you experience:
  • Friday evening Restorative Asana, Pranayama & Yoga Nidra (powerful relaxation practice with guided meditation)
  • Ayurveda Lectures & Discussions: Each participant will have the opportunity to complete a questionnaire to determine their unique constitution (“dosha” in Sanskrit).
  • Daily yoga classes taught by Maria specifically designed to bring you to balance according to the ayurveda season of the year (cooling/rejuvenating practices in Summer; grounding/nurturing practices in Autumn; energizing practices in Winter/Early Spring)
  • Mindful hikes on the Retreat Center’s groomed forested trails incorporating energy practices (qigong), asana, and meditations along the path
Ayurveda lectures will focus on:
  • Fundamentals of ayurveda: the five elements and the three doshas
  • Understanding your ayurveda constitution/dosha
  • Health conditions that may arise from an imbalance in your unique constitution/dosha
  • Food —the six tastes/general dietary guidelines to bring balance to your constitution/dosha
  • The Ayurveda Clock: looking at the 24-hour day, seasons of the year, and the seasons of life from an ayurveda perspective; discussions on lifestyle practices to promote balance according to the age-old Ayurveda Clock
