Paramahansa Yogananda Sadhanalaya – Igatpuri was inaugurated on March 7, 2002. Spread across 16 lush green acres, the retreat offers a natural surrounding for silent communion with God.
Situated only 125 kms from Mumbai, and only an hour journey from Nashik the retreat is easily accessible with all major trains halting at Igatpuri station.
Retreat facilities consist of both single occupancy as well as dormitory style accommodation. YSS books and recordings are available for sale and for private study in the Library.
Retreat activities include daily group meditations, practice of the YSS Energization Exercises, inspirational classes and programmes.
There is also ample free time to relax and enjoy God’s presence in the beautiful retreat settings.
These retreat programmes are open to all devotees: men, women, and married couples. Men and women will be accommodated separately.
Participants are urged to maintain silence during the retreat to deepen their attunement with Guruji and to build their inner environment.
