Where is it?
Welcome to the world of Auroville, the universal township of spiritual synthesis, where wind-swept forest roads re-establish your connection with Mother Earth. Located in Tamil Nadu, India, it rekindles the development of your internal abilities for the collective spirit.
Within Auroville lies an eco-sustainable community - Verite. Our retreat will be hosted here, where a nourishing, healthy and serene environment will help promote a sense of inner as well as outer space
Three organic vegetarian meals, grown in Auroville itself.
Accommodation in a single/double room.

"Auroville for me is a life changing place. It really enables you to get in contact with yourself. The safe and serene environment and the space at Verite give you all you need to dwell inward-to your inner process of growth and peace" Einat Ran
And if I'm new to Yoga?
The beauty of yoga is its individualistic yet holistic nature. It prepares the individual to join the higher gathering. For beginners, it is a great opportunity to develop a sense of awareness on the path of spiritual cleansing. If you are an experienced practitioner, it is an opportunity to dwell on the deeper layers of consciousness and to root the practice inward.
This Yoga, Meditation & Awareness Retreat is essential for that individuals who are interested in promoting well-being and inner peace in their life, and ones who wishes to receive the tools to apply to the practical side of life.
Who teaches the retreat?
This Yoga, meditation & awareness retreat is created and mainly taught by me, Einat Ran
with the co-operation of experienced Aurovilian teachers.
I have been a practitioner of yoga for the past 10 years. I explored many methods,
before finding my calling in Vini (vinyasa) Yoga. I follow the tradition of TKV Desikachar,
the son and heir of Krishnamacharya. It is a traditional form of yoga that combines physical
practice with ancient philosophy.
I completed my teacher training in Wingate Institute, Israel. Further to that,
I undertook intensive training at the KYM School in Chennai, India.
I currently teach classes and workshops in India and Israel.
