Fall Meditation and Yoga Retreat

We welcome you to Ananda Liina for the annual Fall Retreat. This is a chance to immerse yourself in a weekend of meditation, yoga and self-discovery.  Dada Vedaprajinananda will guide workshops on meditation and there will be several sessions of chanting and meditation, a yoga postures class,  cooperative games and more.  Whether you are new to meditation and yoga or already practicing, this program will be inspiring.

We have kept the costs to a minimum: Full price is $75 and for students/unemployed/etc. it is $35.  The prices include food and lodging (for those coming from out of town). Local residents of the Urbana-Champaign area may also lodge at Ananda Liina upon request.
