Yoga & Meditation Retreats

Let yourself be taken care of and guided through yoga, meditation, breathing, relaxation, meditation, chanting, sound vibration and inspirational writing exercises to refresh your life and detox space in your body, mind and soul to create your goals for your path up ahead.


"Ruah is one of the kindest and most talented women it has been my good fortune to know. She was called to teach yoga and meditation; those who have the opportunity to learn from her should leap at the chance."

"I absolutely recommend going on a retreat with Ruah.  No hyperbole, I think a retreat with Ruah is prescriptive for a life best lived. Ruah is the ultimate guide. She leads with clarity, grace, precision, wisdom, and abundant love. She meets and guides each person in the unique way they need to take their yoga practice (on and off the mat) to the next level. Practicing with Ruah in such an intimate, hands-on way elevated my practice in profound and long-lasting ways that I will be grateful for throughout my journey as an aspiring yogi. I left this retreat inspired, strong and ready (though another day would still have been lovely!) to go back into the world and bring my fullest, most loving, and present self to others. This retreat was a truly life-affirming experience."
"Thank you, Ruah, from the bottom of my heart, for all the time, energy, love, and generosity of spirit that you brought to each and every moment of this retreat. I love how you facilitated us to all authentically connect, take time for ourselves and come away with a newly discovered community. My cup overflows."

Education should be aimed at moulding students on the lines of human values such as love, peace, righteousness and non-violence. Our schools built under the ideals of Swami educates children for academic perfection as well as human excellence. Swami, in his subtle form, continues to drive his institution on this lines.

An empty stomach paves no way of learning new things in life. And it is in schools that children learn the in and outs of life apart from the academic syllabus.
