We invite you to live the purification of your mind, body and senses to connect with your true essence through yoga and guided meditation, intriguing and thought-provoking discussions, healthy and nutritious food, puja (a sacred vedic fire ceremony), and many possibilities for nature walks.

Yogi Ashokananda will provide you with insight & practical experience to guide you into daily practices, develop awareness and create availability to find inner balance to support your journey in life and to be fulfilled.  

You will expand your sense of who and what you are with the teachings of Yogi Ashokananda by applying the yoga & meditation disciplines he has developed.   We will explore and practice Himalayan Hatha Yoga, Prana Kriya Yoga and Atma Kriya Meditation, invest time in self-contemplation, self-care, discourse and a sacred ceremony.  

Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda are yogic forms of personal development, taking personal responsibility for your health, education, and lifestyle. Individuals come to the path of self-fulfillment for a variety of reasons, including trauma, physical or mental illness, burn-out, major life incidences or simply on a continuous path to improve their well-being.  

It is normal to question your purpose or reason for being, and how you want to spend the precious time available and start to consider general or specific improvements to your well-being to live the lifestyle you now desire.  

Yoga, meditation and self-fulfillment go together, they train the mind to work through the problem, by addressing the priorities and remind us to connect to our inner self, our true being.

Finding peace at the physical level and not running away from yourself in your mind is key.  You will leave the retreat weekend with the ability to help you find a long-lasting peace within yourself that allows you to be with all your emotions and feelings without the veneer of “positive thinking”.  In this way, you can be your true, authentic self, connected and compassionate with yourself and others.

Yogi Ashokananda

Yogi is an expert and pioneer as a practising Master of Yoga, Meditation and Spirituality. He has dedicated his entire adult life in service to humanity by teaching, mentoring, writing, learning, and speaking on yoga, meditation, and spirituality.  He is the Master who created the discipline of Himalayan Hatha Yoga, Prana Kriya Yoga & Atma Kriya Meditation, the results of practicing from a young age and benefiting from the teachings of several great Yogis.

Raised in India, he has been practicing yoga since early childhood when his Grandfather was his first teacher.

Over many years Yogi Ashokananda has been fortunate to develop his teaching, experience and education of yoga under some of the great, remote, Indian masters and siddhas. The Gurukul style of learning with the masters, influenced Yogi’s experience and inspiration to develop his own profound yoga & meditation disciplines and insights which have their roots in the ancient, sacred Indian tradition. The outcome of this period in his life resulted in Himalayan Hatha Yoga, Prana Kriya Yoga, Atma Kriya Meditation & Science of Relaxation.

Yogi Ashokananda resides primarily in the UK, teaching across Europe, Asia, India and Live Online. His teachings have been available in the U.S. through his students and in 2022, he traveled to the States for the first time with a view to understand the interest in his teachings directly.  He is delighted to be returning to the States, this time to Texas.

He continues to incorporate these beautiful practices into his daily life, while helping others to achieve the same. As an eternal student, he continues to learn from all his students and maintains an openness to new experiences.
