About The Event

This 3-day silent meditation retreat is designed for you to explore your inner experience. The full daily program includes yoga classes and extended sessions of guided meditation, plus an evening session for questions and discussion.

We ask participants to maintain silence throughout the course to encourage inner reflection, and to recognise and release habits and emotions that come from talking. By the end of the course, many participants report finding the silence rewarding, insightful and relaxing.

This is a structured course conducted in silence that starts early each morning. Participants should come prepared for a lot of silent seated meditation, yoga postures and freedom from talking. To get the most from this course we ask participants to stay with the course timetable.

Previous experience with meditation or yoga is an advantage, but is not essential. We will give you full instruction in meditation, yoga and any other techniques that we may practise. Support is available from the instructors at anytime.

Donation Based Retreat

This retreat is run on a donation basis. All expenses are paid by donations from those who have completed the retreat, experienced the benefits, and wish to give others the same opportunity. This retreat would usually be priced at around $350 to cover the cost of accommodation, facilities & facilitators ($100 deposit already paid). The remaining donation can be paid at the conclusion of the retreat (closing circle) where the facilitator will take you through the process. We ask that you give what you can and we appreciate your time, energy and contribution in creating this group meditation experience and ensuring the Ashram Yoga Silent Retreat can continue into the future for others to enjoy. 

Ashram Yoga is a registered charity (charities.govt.nz).
