About Hidden Language Hatha Yoga

Developed by Swami Radha, Hidden Language Hatha Yoga takes the practice of Hatha Yoga far beyond a series of physical exercises. It is a gentle and meditative style of Hatha that respects the body as a spiritual tool. By working with metaphor, symbolism, imagery and visualization, the ‘hidden’ messages of each asana are revealed. Hidden Language starts with the very personal – your observations, your mind, your body, your relationship to the world. And it expands out to the universal, to the mythologies of our cultures, to the subtle force sustaining all life. The asanas are practiced not only for their physical benefits, but also to understand the psychological and symbolic meanings, to demonstrate how each asana can increase spiritual awareness.  For those accustomed to physically intense or rigorous Hatha traditions, Hidden Language will be a change of pace, a chance to go deeper into the body and the mystical potential of each asana.The atmosphere of a class is quiet and self-directed.

Living from Love: Tuning Into Your Heart’s Message

One-Day Retreat
with Yasodhara Ashram Teacher
Swami Samayananda

Saturday, November 18th
10am to noon and 1:30 to 3:30pm
Cost: $80


“The Heart is symbolic for the center of our spiritual being-limitless compassion and knowledge beyond the intellect.”
~ Swami Radha

The ground of the Heart is where we can open to inspiration and understanding. In this retreat, we offer practices of reflection, mantra, visualization, silence and breath to deepen a connection to the inner source of love. By listening and becoming receptive to your still, small voice, you can clear the way for finer feelings like gratitude and compassion.

What does your heart say? And how can listening to its messages improve your relationships-first to yourself, then to those around you?

Bring a journal or notebook. Lunch on your own from noon to 1:30 pm. 

See below for payment and registration information.

Wisdom Gathering Retreat 

with Swami Satyananda from Yasodhara Ashram

Saturday, May 20th, 10 am to noon and 3 to 5 pm; $75

“How do we manifest wisdom? We open our hearts and leave space in our minds for wisdom to enter…we let the wisdom of each situation bring itself forward and carry us to the next step.”
~ Swami Radhananda, Living the Practice

What does it mean to access wisdom gained from our life experiences, bringing this forward in ways that are meaningful now? When we take the time to gather the wisdom from our experiences—the learning, challenges and victories—we can then ask: How do I want to create my life now? Where do I want to direct my energy? This retreat will include an exploration of your personal symbols, visualization, relaxation and reflection.

Bring a journal and wear comfortable clothes. 

There will be a 3-hour break from noon to 3pm during which you will have lunch on your own and time to explore your reflections. 

See below for payment and registration information.
