Lunar Yoga Immersion Program
Are you looking to deepen your yoga practice in a unique holistic community? We are excited to offer our Lunar Yoga Immersion Program. As a lunar yogi/ yogini you will spend a month immersed in all facets of the four traditional paths of yoga; Raja, Bhakti, Jnana and Karma Yoga.
Beginning with the new moon, we invite yogis/ yoginis to join us for a month of growth and sharing centered around the lunar cycle and in harmony with the Medicine Wheel cycle of the Four Winds. The new moon encourages us to set great intention and manifestation to each cycle. We then move through each of the directions; shedding layers, exploring mental and emotional patterns, embracing the joy and delight of the experience of life, love and community, moving towards greater perception and elevated consciousness.
Each day begins with morning meditation followed by a holistic yoga class centered around the daily theme of where we are in each cycle. After breakfast he mornings are spent in community with morning prayers, light karma yoga practice, and time for self reflection or learning about Permaculture. After lunch we explore Yoga Wisdom as an inner inquiry into Self, later rejuvenating and relaxing with a restorative/ yin yoga class. We encourage time for self exploration, reflection and journaling. Evening satsangs each week also offer a time to gather to share and reflect our truths, and sing and celebrate together.
The cost of the Lunar Yoga Immersion Program is US$375 for one lunar cycle (new moon to new moon) for tuition only, and room and board is charged separately depending on your accommodation choice for a full lunar cycle. Please see our website Accommodations and Rates pages for more information.
As a lunar yogi you will be cared for with three delicious vegetarian meals a day, twice daily yoga classes (6 days a week) and yoga wisdom classes (5 days a week), and the occasional Permaculture workshops may be possible depending on the immersion schedule. Lunar yogis/ yoginis are expected to contribute to the needs of the community with daily and weekly karma yoga duties such as kitchen assistance, sweeping, general cleaning and participation of evening satsang.

Recent Trip Advisor Reviews of the Lunar Yoga Immersion Program;
“One of the most transformational months of my life!” - My stay at the Yoga Forest was nothing short of amazing! My experience in the Lunar Yoga Immersion far surpassed all of my expectations. The land is beautiful. The daily routine at the Forest is full of sweet rituals: We would rise early with the sun to practice meditation, and asana. After nourishing meals, there were philosophy and Permaculture lectures, and restorative/yin classes. There was plenty of opportunities to participate in sacred ceremonies--which included many offerings, such as fresh flowers, chanting, music, and sharing. After that I would then settle into my tent under the moon and stars. I've never felt so connected to a community, the earth, and myself as I did during that transformational month at The Yoga Forest. The Lunar Yoga Immersion program was wonderful. Hayley is one of the most incredible yoga philosophy teachers that I've ever had. Her patient guidance on this path will be unforgettable. The wisdom classes that she taught were a true gift, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to study under her. The program that she has created really allowed me to venture deep within my consciousness. She created a loving and supportive space to help me shed the layers of myself that no longer serve me, and to shine my light brighter. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to reconnect with their hearts, their bodies, and the earth. Thank you!" Dawn Hyde, USA, Lunar Yogi
“Life changing course, beautiful experience!" I came to the forest for one week as a guest and ended up staying for 5! I signed up for the lunar yoga immersion course which ended up being the best decision of my life. Hayley is an incredible teacher with so much wisdom to share. It's a brilliant course with 1 hour meditation and 3 hours yoga a day, alongside a 2 hour wisdom theory class a day, which were so amazing. I learned so much and would recommend anyone interested in yoga, consciousness deepening practice or teacher training to come here. I'll be back for my teacher training for sure!! the forest is so beautiful and amazing place to go and visit, the Permaculture farm, food, cabanas, yoga platforms and chill out spots are all amazing. I had the most incredible time and made friends for life. Everyone is super genuine, supporting and beautiful at the forest. It will always remain as one of the most special experiences of my life."
