This five-day retreat is for Sivananda Teachers who have completed the Sadhana Intensive. It is a 5-day self-practice sadhana intensive refresher for a few yogis who have done SI with Swami Kailasananda. It’s a chance to review the practices and our notes together, and do the practices on the land here. It will be very simple, with reference to Swami Kailasananda’s and Swami Vishnu’s teaching (our notes, the manual), HYP and the routine we follow on the course, including satsang and karma yoga. Kicheri and almond milk diet. Cost £108, 5 nights, possibility to arrive early/stay later and do karma yoga on the land.
