Mindful Yoga Intensive Retreat

27. October - 30. October, 2022

Jonathan Weber

A long weekend immersion for the practice of Mindful yoga, blending mindfulness and compassion practice with gentle yoga asana


Vipassana/Insight and Awakening in yoga

In the supportive environment of this training retreat, we will use the elements of Mindful yoga to create a foundation for deeper practice. We will further explore the essence of both Buddhist yoga and Classical yoga as a meditative path which leads to insight and awakening. Through mindfulness we can investigate our mind, dis-identify from habitual thinking, and gain insight (vipashyana) into the true nature of our authentic self. As we learn to quiet the busy mind and open the heart, we can awaken to the peace and clarity of resting in our natural state.

This intensive weekend is a learning retreat designed for those in Mindful yoga training to experience going deeper in a residential practice retreat. Additionally, it will be open to those familiar with Mindful yoga from previous trainings who wish to deepen their practice, or those with a keen interest to study Mindful yoga and the topic of Insight and Awakening.

The mornings until lunch will be in silence. All sessions will be a combination of practice and study, including meditation and yoga. Longer sessions will have a short break in the middle. There will be a 2-hour personal time break in the middle of the day.


Who may attend:

  • All participants of the Mindful Yoga Training 2022 at Hiyoga.
