Hridaya Yoga Retreat:

Module 2

Going Deeper in the Practice

Exploring the Consciousness of Oneness

Hridaya Yoga Retreat: Module 2 offers graduates of Module 1 the opportunity to go deeper in the teachings of traditional Hatha Yoga, further exploring the beauty of the Heart.

The Module 2 program includes 13 days of instruction over a 16-day course cycle. During this module, the practice gets more profound with the introduction of new asanas and pranayama techniques. Nada Yoga (meditation on subtle sounds) will be one of the essential points on this yogic journey.

The format of Module 2 allows more time for the integration of personal practice and interaction with others who are serious about spiritual evolution. Discussions on the 14 Hridaya Attitudes and other daily life awareness activities offer inspiration and tools for practicing yoga off the mat.

This is an inspiring and joyful program that provides space for transformation and loving support from dedicated teachers.

“After Module 1, I knew that it was just the beginning… Module 2 was such a beautiful exploration. Sharing many essential aspects of life together, in-depth and from the Heart, for me had the taste of Truth… So much gratitude for these teachings and the amazing Hridaya Family!”
