Transformative Yoga

& Meditation Retreats

Meditation

The basis of our practice is Self-Inquiry. That means asking yourself “Who am I?” and opening to what arises. Our 3- and 10-day silent meditation retreats are an ideal first step for this inner communion.

HATHA YOGA

Hridaya Hatha Yoga is a beautiful synthesis of asanas, activation of the chakras, meditation, and awareness. Our Module 1 yoga retreat invites you to experience this practice while learning about yogic philosophy.

Are You Looking for More?

Maybe you’ve been doing yoga and meditation for years. Maybe you’re still not sure what they are. But something inside you is saying: “It’s time!” It’s time to make a change. Time to stop living in ways that don’t fulfill you. Time to ask the big questions and figure out who you really are.

At Hridaya, we understand you—because we’ve been there. That nagging voice of yearning has spoken to us, too. We know it as the call of the Heart, and its wisdom infuses everything we do. When you meditate or practice yoga with us, you aren’t just moving your body or taming your mind. You’re beginning a journey of discovery that will transform your life—connecting you to yourself in ways you never imagined and making you happier, calmer, and more compassionate along the way.

Join us on this journey. It’s more than time.

FOCUS ON THE HEART

Connect to Love

“Hridaya” means Spiritual Heart and refers to the very core of your being. You may know it as God, the Self, atman, or any number of other names. But whatever you call it, it’s what’s calling you to look inward. The teachings we share in our meditation and yoga retreats and that form the basis of our community are all rooted in the Heart. Following them will guide you to your own experience of its Love, which is the most intimate feeling of home.

“‘Who am I’ is not a mystery to be solved, but a mystery to live with.”
