Vedanta Yoga Retreat, India

Vedanta is the ancient philosophy of India that originated in the Himalayas over 10,000 years ago. It provides eternal principles that enable you to deal with life’s challenges in a calm and dignified manner. Above all, it’s philosophy leads you to the ultimate state of enlightenment.

The Vedanta Yoga Retreat takes place at the home of spirituality, the Vedanta Academy in India. The retreat provides a rare opportunity to take stock of yourself and your life—and escape the chaotic world to focus your attention within. 

The retreat, lead by world-renowned philosopher Swami Parthasarathy, offers participants a unique schedule specifically designed for complete development of the personality.

Yoga at the Vedanta Academy

Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means to unite, to join, to connect with your true Self within. The Vedanta Academy practices four Yogas: Hatha yoga (connection through asanas—physical postures), Karma yoga (connection through action—selfless service), Bhakti Yoga (connection through love—devotion) and Gnana Yoga (connection through knowledge—wisdom).
