and help you relax and rejuvenate.​ 

Imagine yourself walking in the footstep of Paramahansa Yogananda, whas walked the land in earlier times, waking up to a wonderful organic breakfast spread prepared by our Chef Katie, taking a morning yoga class with Malaurie, being seranated by Govin Das and Radha while practicing your afternoon asanas, taking a cool and refreshing dip in the pool between activities, maybe spoiling yourself with one of Lynda's wonderful Craniosacral and Reiki session** and ending the day surrounded by friends while listening and chanting with Govin Das and Radha. Sounds exactly what the doctor prescribed? Then keep reading, registration is below.
