For the householder (non- cave dweller), the ideal situation is creating the evironment through lifestyle choices and daily dedication to the path and by making the practice and the lifestyle as the highest of priorities. In the yogi lifestyle, participation in the world around us comes with moderation when the formal practices have been completed and the yogi's state of mind is that of clarity and peace.

In this way, we work "life" around our yoga practices, and each situation in life is an opportunity to apply yogic teachings and act accordingly. However for many, this way of life is very difficult and so a change of environment for the sake of intense yoga practice is beneficial, transformative and darn fun. We conduct annual retreats to both Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica and to the mountains of Western North Carolina, as well as weekend retreats throughout the year to Wilmington and Hot Springs for immersion into intensive practice.
