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.

Now almost becoming a time honoured tradition, once again in 2012, the Yoga Camp was held at Richard's Memorial Park in Mississauga on Sunday August 12th. Despite the uncertain weather forecast and a few minor shower threats, by and large the weather was beautiful and a great day of yoga and fun was had by all.
