All-night celebration at Sivananda Yoga Retreat
Monday night, March 4

Meet us at the Yoga Retreat, an island paradise with crystal-clear water and pure white sand, a true sanctuary of peace and natural beauty located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There we will share yoga practice, meditation, great vegetarian food and the warm companionship of like-minded people from around the world. Make your own travel arrangements and stay for as little or as long as you like.

On Monday night, join us for Sivaratri, one of the most important nights of the yogic calendar. Sivaratri is an all-night celebration of Siva, the aspect of the Divine that destroys the old and negative to make way for new creation. We will celebrate with homas (fire ceremonies) and pujas (rituals) conducted by Krishnan Namboodiri, tantric priest from South India. Senior staff of the ashram will lead us in continuous Siva chants from dusk until dawn. The celebration will end with a sunrise feast.
