Freedom – A BIPOC Yoga Retreat

With Ben Kalra and Danny Fluker, Jr.

April 19 - 21, 2024

Calling all folks who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color to this special retreat designed for you!

On this special weekend, we invite our BIPOC friends to let go, celebrate, and feel free to express ourselves through yoga, meditation, movement, and sharing circles.  This is a safe space where we can explore our relationships to self, community, and spiritual practice. Join us for a weekend of connection – to your roots, purpose, higher self, and the world around you.

This retreat includes:

  • Mindful movement
  • Meditation
  • Nature walks
  • Journaling
  • Breathing Practices
  • Sharing Circles

We’ll follow a smooth flow of energy based in traditional practices and creative explorations. Danny and Ben will share heartfelt practices throughout the weekend to help us honor our wholeness, with time for personal space and integration.

Know that you are enough, you are worthy, you are loved, and we can’t wait to share space with you.

5 partial scholarships are available for those in financial need. Please inquire with Gloria at programs@ratnaling.org by December 1st, 2023.

Please note that non-POC staff and guests will be present on the property.
