 Gold line

In Siddha Yoga Family Retreats, families with children of all ages participate in the Siddha Yoga practices of chanting and meditation, and gather daily for satsang,  to articulate their experiences. Through this dynamic engagement with the spiritual practices and study, families immerse themselves in Siddha Yoga sadhana. Family Retreats also include time for playing outdoors and enjoying nature.

The Siddha Yoga Family Retreat at the Siddha Yoga Asham in Oakland takes place once a year in July.  Many families choose to arrive a day or two early to settle in before the retreat.

The Siddha Yoga Family Retreat in 2018 will be from July 14 to July 17, 2018.

  • Satsang for Families with a Siddha Yoga story
