This retreat is tailored around the Ayurvedic concept of “Ojas,” which is one of the three vital essences that allows us to resist stress and prevent disease, and gives us strength, vitality, happiness, sleep, and endurance. Ojas, the Sanskrit term for “vigor,” is the foundation of our immunity and longevity, and according to Ayurveda it is a biological, pure, and subtle substance that’s extracted from food that has been completely digested. Our time together will be focused on building this vital essence so that we can return to our lives with a sense of renewal.

PRESS THE RESET BUTTON ON YOUR LIFE and join E-RYT & Ayurvedic Health Counselor Nicole Domenic and Personal Development Coach Tonya Baynes for a weekend filled with connection, movement, relaxation, breathing, and a chance to rediscover your true nature. Come nourish yourself with this 4-day retreat focused on self-care, self-healing, and self-love. Nestled in the heart of the Poconos, The Himalayan Institute is the perfect place to connect deeply to your whole self and the inner healer within as we move toward peace and balance.
