The Joy of Being- On Demand Meditation and Yoga Retreat

March 1, 2022 - February 25, 2023

Register anytime and give yourself the gift of a retreat day!

Instructor: Aiyana Athenian

Suggested Schedule: 1-day Retreat includes over 4 hours of recorded content. Allow 5 hours to give ample time to take breaks. 
 Pre-recorded, On Demand Videos from a virtual, live retreat filmed in early 2021.

Need a retreat day? Give yourself the gift of an intentional day of honoring the sacred, creating space and time to go within and be with the inherent Joy deep within your being. Through mindful yoga movement and breath alongside meditations drawn from Tibetan Buddhist Tantra, this retreat explores the natural wakefulness of the body. With inquiry into our awakened body wisdom, we can learn how to weave this inspiration into our everyday lives.

The first two sessions focus on tuning in to the body and opening the energy channels (nadis) through Kundalini yoga and pranayama. We invite our awareness to expand through two different somatic meditations.  The second two sessions continue to guide the practitioner on the journey within through meditation, breath work and eventually Yoga Nidra, a guided relaxation meditation practiced laying down. Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation, inviting one to touch in with the anandamaya kosha (the Bliss Body).

We invite you to nourish your being through awareness, silence, gentle movement and meditation. No prior meditation or yoga experience necessary.

Participants will receive an email with a suggested schedule for taking this retreat, tips for creating a conducive at-home retreat environment and suggestions for continued practice afterward.

What is an On Demand Retreat?
Our On Demand Retreat is a pre-recorded ShivaShakti At-Home immersive retreat during which you will receive teachings,  and join in guided practice. We encourage you to create a retreat environment during our day(s) together, by setting aside this day to be focused predominately on spiritual practice, creating a dedicated retreat space, removing yourself as much as possible from social media and other online work/communication with the exception of the online retreat. We invite you to sink into an inner retreat space in your own home with the support/guidance of our Online Retreat Format.



The rate includes all pre-recorded yoga & meditation sessions. Participants have on-going access to these video recordings.

Rate: $65.
