Rāga Yoga Retreat




No. 69, BMTC Layout, Adjacent to Kammasandra Village, Lakshmipura
Hobli, Karnataka India


Rāga Yoga Retreat combines the musical experience of exploring different rāgās of Indian Classical Music and using them as doorways for experiencing the Navarasās to delve into an immersive self-exploration of the mind and its patterns. The retreat brings together ideas from Hindustani Music, Bharata’s Nātya Śāstra, and Patanjali’s Yoga Sūtrās in an experiential manner. Participants will get an opportunity to explore these ideas through a combination of music, reflective arts, interactive theatre games, and contemplative dialogues.

Rāga Yoga series of workshops and retreats are designed by Hariprasad Varma (Founder – Yogaśāla & Zensei®) in collaboration with Shruti Bode (Hindustani Musician) and Aarti Sivakumar (Carnatic Musician).

Note: The workshop and retreat is suitable for any person across age groups. No background in music is required to benefit from the experience.


Rāga Yoga Retreat is intended to offer an inter-disciplinary experience to participants to discover more about themselves, their relationships, and action choices through music, art, and yoga.

The retreat offers a perfect ambience for a deeply reflective space to look at one self through the support of a collective of fellow co-travellers and seekers.
