Please join us for our annual Spring Retreat! This is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together, to simply BE together, and to cultivate mindfulness and joy together. When we come together as a community, we realize that we are not alone on the path. We realize we are supported by many wonderful friends, teachers, and mother Earth. All we have to do is take one breath in mindfulness, one step in mindfulness, in order to touch all the nourishing and healing elements inside and around us.

Location: Our retreat will be hosted at the beautiful Ancient Yoga Center, located in the heart of the Austin Hill Country. It is also known as the Radha Madhav Dham Ashram, the home of one of the largest Hindu Temples in the USA. Established in 1990 and open to people of all faiths, it is a center for spiritual upliftment. Situated on 200 acres of picturesque grounds, the setting is beautiful and serene.
