Let us gather together and nourish our practice, cultivate gratitude, and ground ourselves in community and tradition. Join Advanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher, Jessica Stickler for this four-day retreat to study, reconnect, reflect, and relax though yoga asana, meditation, and yoga philosophy.

The Jivamukti Giving Thanks Retreat is a longstanding Jivamukti tradition. Come experience the foundations of Jivamukti by visiting the place it was born! Ananda Ashram was founded by Shri Brahmananda Saraswati, who was the guru (teacher) of Jivamukti Yoga founders Sharon Gannon and David Life. This retreat offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the classical studies of yoga.

Each day, students have the option to join a traditional morning fire ceremony, meditation, or Sanskrit lessons, as well as Jivamukti Yoga classes. Relax by the lake or take a rejuvenating walk through nature during your free time. The ashram provides freshly prepared vegan meals.
In keeping with last year’s tradition, Jessica will be donating a portion of the proceeds to a charitable cause. Last year, she was able to give a large donation to Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization devoted to ending hate crimes and violent ideologies.

Nightly Musical Performances: (TBD)

Savor a vegan feast on Thursday, Nov 23rd! Tuition includes accommodations, daily meals, all yoga classes, meditation, Sanskrit classes, and evening programs.
