Join the annual New Year’s Silent Retreat from December 29, 2021 – January 2, 2022 to reflect deeply, gather your strength, renew your inspiration, reconnect with your spirit, and restore yourself in the sanctuary and solace of the Integral Yoga community. Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville is a perfect setting for an inner journey. These signature Silent Retreats take place in a serene oasis nestled near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This restorative environment nurtures your connection with inner stillness.

Take time to step back from the demands of daily life and reconnect with your inner peace. Through the practices of mental silence and Yoga in a tranquil environment, you become reacquainted with your true nature of peace and joy. Join like-minded seekers for a time of self-discovery. The benefits of silence continue long after the retreat ends—you’ll go forward with tools you can use to enjoy a more peaceful, useful, and happy life.
