In this online silent retreat, venture deeper into the Yoga practices that enable you to maintain balance through unexpected changes and difficult situations. Experience a safe and peaceful environment in which you are able to tune in to your inner intelligence and make space for unique growth.

We live in an era of rapid technological advances, unexpected changes, and overwhelming stimulus. How do we navigate through it all with comfort? Discover your own calm center. With that awareness of deep peace, find equanimity in the midst of challenges and clarity to find solutions. Join us as we explore the yogic keys to an easeful, peaceful, useful life.

What to Expect

Since 1970, Integral Yoga Silent Retreats have provided the sanctuary and solace everyone needs from time to time. You will immerse yourself in silence while teachers offer experiential classes in:

  • Yoga philosophy
  • Meditation
  • Breathing techniques
  • Yoga postures
  • Deep relaxation

Live sessions on Thursday evening, Friday and Saturday all day (with brakes and optional videos/activities), and Sunday morning. 

The main program sessions are live and all sessions are in EDT. The live sessions will be recorded and posted to the Online Programs access page if you are unable to join us live for that session. Recordings* are usually posted within one day and are available to program participants and presenter(s) only.
*You're welcome to turn off your camera if you don't wish your image to be recorded.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until December 6. 

All Are Welcome

These retreats are open to everyone, from beginners to advanced Yoga retreatants. Those who are new to meditation or Yoga practices will receive full instruction, while those with experience will have the opportunity to deepen their practice.


This Online Retreat was the best thing I have ever done for myself and my family. I feel grounded, at ease and ready to face the world with peace and love. — Connie Yanez

Beautiful and restorative experience. I was able to reset, rest and access an important part of myself. I feel deeply nourished and ready to reintegrate back into my homelife. — Claire Pallandre

Having this rare and beautiful space to rest, to learn and to connect and to grow is a true gift and I am truly grateful. A true escape from my hectic city life. I finally feel like I can breathe. All parts of me feel alive again. — Elissa Gross

For those searching for some grounding in this day and age, this is for you. Quite often I found myself smiling for no good reason. There was this sense of joy which I had not witnessed in a while. I’ll be back and I will miss the ashram! — Sid

In our world, we had become so busy in mind and body. In the silence, we give ourselves permission to become a human “being” rather than a human “doing”. Just be and you can help yourself discover who you really are in the silence. — Mona Lee
