What is a Sadhana Retreat?
“Sadhana” is the sanskrit term for your spiritual practice, be it asana, mantra, meditation… The intention of a sadhana retreat is to deepen your practice and take it to the next level.
In the fall of 2015 Mugs shared techniques that her teacher, Dr. Hari Dikman was taught by these Yoga masters and many more. This fall Mugs will continue to share more techniques from her book.
Hari was a Latvian man who began his yoga journey before World War II. These yoga masters wrote him letters full of rich yoga techniques so he could master yoga from a distance. During and after the war Hari taught yoga in DP Camps (camps for displaced persons) until Paramhansa Yogananda was eventually able to bring him to the United States, where Hari resided until his death in 1979. The letters from these yoga masters were the “textbooks” Hari used to teach Mugs.
The retreat begins with dinner on Friday and ends Sunday with lunch. Each day is rich with meditation, pranayama, asana classes and stories of yoga.
Vegetarian meals and shared accommodations are all included at Sorrento Centre. When all rooms are filled at Sorrento Centre we will reserve rooms at the Shuswap Lake Motel for you.
