The Life-Force Academy Immersion

With Jai Dev Singh

October 11 - 15, 2023

Life-Force Academy at Menla
This is an in-person, multi-day immersive yoga retreat that will give you the energy, inspiration and momentum to live the life of creativity and purpose that you were designed for. Join Jai Dev Singh and the Life-Force Academy this fall at the majestic Menla Mountain Retreat in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York.
Over this five-day journey, you and inspired community members from around the world will be guided through:
– Transporting practices that will infuse your mind and body with energy and vitality
– Blissful meditations to connect to the energy of your heart and purpose
– Dharma teachings that will chisel your mind and inspire your life’s deeper energy
All surrounded by the majesty and beauty of Menla – the “garden of the Medicine Buddha” – one of the great homes of Tibetan Buddhism in the West.
The long-lasting transformative effects that an event like this can have on your body and mind cannot be understated. You have the potential to level up your yoga and meditation practice and unlock deeper levels of clarity, confidence, and purpose… not to mention all of the beautiful people you will meet along the way!
Surrounded by the epic beauty of the Catskill Mountains and the warmth of a global community of dedicated and welcoming practitioners, we will go deep into the heart of these ancient yogic teachings and unlock the innate power, wisdom, and compassion contained at the very nucleus of our being — it is truly an unforgettable experience.
