Join Us October 6-8 at Song of the Morning!

Submerge yourself in the heart of yoga as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda during our peak autumnal season!

As always, this delightful annual retreat is orchestrated by our very own Golden Lotus School of Yoga trainees! Be gently guided through a thoughtfully curated retreat, including hatha yoga classes, meditations, kirtan, chakra attunement sessions, colorful workshops, spiritual discussions, connection in fellowship, all while surrendering into the blissful serenity Song of the Morning’s peaceful woodland forest has to offer during the vibrant colors of autumn.

This retreat is our student’s opportunity to learn how to offer a retreat and practice teaching under the guidance of our teacher trainers.
