Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat

Recharge your chakras at Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas, boasting crystal blue waters, white sands and swaying palm trees. This Nassau retreat follows a specific pattern: You'll rise at 6 a.m., meditate through dawn, chant until tea time and do two hours of hatha yoga before breaking for your 10 a.m. vegetarian meal. The afternoon follows a similar pattern with a second session of hatha yoga, 6 p.m. dinner and then ending the day with a presentation, live chanting or dance performance as part of the daily satsang gathering. Guests also volunteer with a session of Karma yoga, where you'll help with ashram duties (known to non-yogis as chores). This retreat, in the lineage of esteemed yogi Swami Sivananda, also offers teacher training and escapes with themes such as positive thinking; Ahimsa: the Yoga Practice of Non-Injury; Yoga, Stress, and Food and more.
