Vancouver BC Retreat: Inner Awakening

  • Xenia Centre Bowen Island Vancouver British Columbia (map)

A weekend yoga retreat for inner awakening on Bowen Island, Vancouver, B.C.

Are we formless beings roaming aimlessly through life, or are there deeper meanings to our journey that are revealed to the enlightened ones?

The path of yoga is the path of inner knowing of your place in the Universe; this knowing allows you to move fearlessly through life by realizing your divine self.  

Join us for a weekend retreat at the Xenia Centre on the serene Bowen Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Pamper your spirit and intellect with Dharma Teachings and Universal Yoga classes offered by Raj Patra and take steps on your journey of moving closer to your own Inner Light.  

All-inclusive pricing includes farm-to-table meals that will raise your vibration, yoga classes and lectures from an Indian yoga teacher, Raj Patra, and 2-nights boarding in, from 11:00 AM on Friday, March 8, 2019, until 4:00 PM on Sunday, March 10, 2019.


  • Farm-to-Table meals

  • All yoga classes and lectures

Born in Kolkata, India in a spiritual family, Raj was soaked in Hinduism and yoga traditions at a very young age. Practiced in Swami Yogananda lineage, his current teacher is the father of Universal Yoga lineage, Dorje Andre Lappa, a Vajrayana Buddhist. Raj has traveled to Nepal many times.

“My goal is to educate others on the essence of yoga traditions. On this adventure you will touch the sky of spirituality and the heart of adventure. You’ll visit known and hidden holy sites, witness peaceful ancient culture, and meet yogis — this trip will remain unforgettable.”
