Yoga Camps

Shri Ambika Yoga Kutir, Toronto conducts, on an annual basis, a one day Yoga Camp during the summer. Such camps have been held in the past every year from 2009. All sadhaks who have attended the beginners' yoga course are invited to attend.

The agenda for the day consists of a 2-3 hour Yoga practice in the early morning under a blue (hopefully) sky and in the fresh air. The atmosphere is very amenable to an enjoyable, refreshing and revitalizing yoga practice. Shared breakfast (brought by each participant), is followed by various activities including, based on individual preference, cricket, badminton, other games, walks, etc. After a sumptuous lunch a yoga quiz/game or other learning activities are conducted. The camp ends at about 4:00 P.M.

In the past, based on feedback, we can say with confidence that these camps have been hugely successful with all participants having a most enjoyable time.

In 2009, the camp was held on Saturday August 29th at Richard's Memorial Park in Mississauga. Despite the discouraging weather forecast, and heavy rains overnight & early that morning, the camp began on schedule and as soon as the yoga practice started, the weather began to clear and we ended up with a wonderful day.
