The subject of the retreat will be the all-important and all-defining faculty of awareness, which is fundamental not only to yoga but also to our human existence.

What do we mean by awareness? For most people, awareness means mere knowledge. We often say, “I am aware of that,” meaning that we know something. In yoga it also means knowledge but it simultaneously means far more. Awareness in a general sense means to comprehend, to know, to feel what is happening around us. It also means to know what is happening within us. Most people comprehend very little of what is occurring around and within them. This is a low state of awareness.

Fund raising for construction

Main building of the Hungarian Yoga Association

We are very happy to announce that the most significant undertaking in the development of Ashram has begun. The Hungarian Yoga Association’s ashram has been developed from donations of the Hungarian and international Satyananda Yoga community since 2006. Over the past years we have received countless selfless donations, ranging from a few Euros to tens of thousands, and now now we once again ask the members of the community for help.  After detailed planning and thorough preparation, in 2021 we began constructing the main building, a two-storey house with over 900 square meters of usable floor space, which will enable us to offer programs all year and provide home for those interested in the yogic lifestyle. The foundations and the supporting structure are already complete. The next phase, the masonry and concrete slab, which cost nearly € 45,000  – will require additional funding. Therefore, we ask all those who have the will and means to contribute to the development of the ashram to support the construction with a donation. Thank you in advance!
