De-stress and reset at this special getaway weekend at the Himalayan Institute in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. Along with gentle yoga, we’ll focus on essential practices from the Himalayan tradition to systematically release tension, wind down, and turn off the busy chattering mind. The resulting alert inner stillness in the body and mind is deeply rejuvenating—beyond the rest available by ordinary means. Much more than mere distraction, this accessible practice is the gateway to profound unconditional well-being, deeper levels of awareness, and meditation.
In addition to the happiness of yoga practice, your retreat at the Himalayan Institute offers nourishing vegetarian meals, a community supportive of your well-being, time to enjoy ayurvedic treatments, massage, or integrative health consultations at our PureRejuv Wellness Center, and hikes through our beautiful 400-acre campus.
