Yoga Vacation Program
June 28 — July 1, 2025

Mindful Bhakti Embodied

An Exploration into Life Practices that Support the Mind, Body, and Heart

Luna Ray and Joshua Cantor

Join Luna Ray and Joshua Canter for an inspiring retreat as we use mindfulness and body-centered approaches to explore the mystical and heart opening practices of bhakti yoga. Somatic practices are about deepening our capacity to be present with an expansive range of sensations and emotions. Over the course of this retreat experience we will study and practice Bhakti Yoga, including mantra, song, ritual while expanding our Somatic awareness through mindfulness practice. Through this retreat we will enhance our ability to feel alive and connected to ourselves, each other, and the world around us with practical tools we can take home and integrate into our everyday life.

Offered as 3 satsangs and 3 workshops (subject to change).

The presentations associated with this Yoga Vacation Program begin with an 8pm satsang on the first day of the program and conclude with an 8pm satsang on the last day of the program.  Click here to read more about the Yoga Vacation Program details and view the ashram schedule for yoga classes and meals during your stay.
