Here & Now
Rāga Yoga Retreat (Nov 6-10, 2021) is a unique program combining the principles and practices of Yoga, Music, Dance and Theatre. It is an invitation to delve deeper into yourself through an experiential exploration of body, breath, voice, and mind. In this program, you will get to experience yoga as a journey of self-exploration beyond just asana or pranayama practices. This is the second edition of the Rāga Yoga retreat inspired by the beautiful experience we had in our pilot edition in Goa in April 2021.
Yogaśāla retreats are memorable experiences replete with a blend of learning, fun, adventure, and deep nourishing connections. We have organised retreats across India and abroad curating experiences of self-discovery and an exploration new lands, cultures, and cuisines.
This retreat is for you if you wish to:
Deer Park Institute at Bir, Himachal Pradesh.
Deer Park Institute is a centre for the study of classical Indian wisdom traditions. It is a project under Siddhartha's intent society. In remembrance of the Buddha’s first teachings at the historical Deer Park (Mriga Dava) in Sarnath, where the Buddha displayed a spirit of open inquiry into the nature of mind, existence and suffering, without any bias, the president of Siddharthat’s Intent Society, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, named the institute-Deer Park.
The core vision of the Institute is to re-create the spirit of Nalanda, the great university of ancient India in which all traditions of Buddhism were studied and practiced, alongside other schools of classical Indian philosophy, arts and sciences.
Deer Park Institute is located in Bir Colony, Chowgan Village, in the Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh. We will share detailed instructions on how to reach the retreat venue upon registering your interest below.

An avid proponent of healthy living, Aarti is primarily a vocal instructor, whose passion is to bring people closer to their voices through better awareness of their body.
She believes that anyone can sing, regardless of what age or natural talent one may start with. Having been surrounded by music of different genres and languages from a very young age, she tries to borrow from all her musical experiences, be it a Carnatic Kriti or a Japanese folk song, in everything she does.
She brings those nuances with her when she teaches various genres, in combination with voice culture. Aarti performs Jazz on stage. She also lends her voice to advertisements and has collaborated on many award-winning audio and film projects. Aarti is part of Yogaśāla's Rāga Yoga team and co-facilitated the first Rāga Yoga retreat in Goa in April 2021.
When she's not doing something with her voice, Aarti loves to experience different cultures and food. You can find out more about her at www.aartisivakumar.com
