Join us for the first ever Bhakti Yoga Summit w/ Raghunath in Puerto Rico!
March 30th - April 3rd 2020
Nestled in the mountains of Puerto Rico, you’ll dive deep into the study and practice of Bhakti Yoga with world renowned Yoga Teacher, Raghunath. Every morning begins with study of sacred literature and Satsang, and every evening ends with Kirtan! Although we will study and learn together, there is still plenty of time during the day to relax by the pool, explore the property, practice yoga and meditation or come on optional day trips around the island.
Set in a stunning valley on 107 lush tropical acres, Casa Grande Mountain Retreat is an oasis of peace and tranquility. The former coffee plantation, now exquisitely landscaped, has 20 rooms scattered up the mountainside, each with private bath and hammock. A fresh-water swimming pool is cradled beneath a green mountain vista. A fully equipped yoga center is used for individual and group practice. Delicious Vegetarian (and Vegan) meals provided by Simon’s Catering.
