Summer Retreat is back once again! Join us for an immersive weekend of movement, meditation and healing in the beautiful setting of Mitake Mountain. For this year’s retreat we will explore the path of Yoga and see how at its end, at its peak, begins the path of Tantra.

In Yoga we cultivate what is positive and avoid what is negative. In Tantra we live in full acceptance, embracing our aversions, for within every negative lies its positive; the possibility for transformation becomes available in every situation. By simply being relaxed, open, and aware, ignorance can turn into wisdom, fear into freedom, discipline into naturalness. We skillfully navigate our experiences, the non-dual mind stabilizes, and we abide effortlessly in our center.

In this retreat we will utilize Yoga and Tantra techniques to access the opportunities for transformation that are available in our day-to-day lives. Modern Hatha Yoga helps us explore new movement patterns and opens new pathways to our spiritual and worldly goals; Yin Yoga supports deep surrender and cultivates patience and compassion toward ourselves; and partner Kundalini Yoga/Venus Kriyas encourages openness and skillfulness in the way we relate to others. We will also practice pranayama, mantra and meditation to further gain support in unraveling the conditioned mind so we may stabilize in our natural state.

Course content includes:
– Modern Yoga Movement
– Yin Yoga
– Venus Kriyas
– Discourses on Intentional Living
– Teachings of Yoga & Tantra
– Pranayama, Mantra & Meditation
Sound Healing & Sufi Dancing

Costs include course instruction, accommodations, and vegetarian meals.
参加費には受講料、宿泊費(食事付 **乳製品・卵を含む菜食のお食事となります)が含まれます

This program is intended for all levels of students. No previous experience necessary. With clear awareness and full acceptance we can truly transform our obstacles into fulfillment and wholeness. There is no duality, only totality.

Summer Yoga Retreat / July 16-18, 2016 @ Mt. Mitake, Tokyo

2016 Mitake Yoga Retreat

Summer Retreat with Miles Maeda
The Heart of the Beloved – Let the Beauty We Love Be What We Do
マイルズ・マエダ サマー・リトリート
愛の真髄 – 愛すべきものを体現する

Saturday July 16 – Monday July 18, 2016
at Nobori Shukubo, Mitake, Tokyo
御岳山 宿坊「能保利」(東京・青梅)

There are paths of yoga for the intellect, paths of yoga for being of service, and paths of yoga for disciplined practice. Most are familiar with the latter when practicing yoga asana. But alongside these is a spiritual path of love and devotion, of ecstasy and unity, of celebration and community—it is the path of the heart. This is the way of connecting with and honoring the love, harmony, and beauty in the world and expressing it in all the things that we do.

The Sufi path has deep roots coming from seeds planted by early mystics and esoteric schools of the Middle East. At its center is the heart, the path of love; its guide, the one holy book, is nature itself. It views all religions as one religion, and recognizes all prophets, saints, and buddhas as messengers of God the Beloved. And just like in yoga, the goal is unity, oneness. We turn on our inner light allowing it to shine forth through our actions, making our lives the beautiful expression of what we love.

Come join us for our sixth annual Summer Retreat where we’ll honor life and celebrate love through diverse and dynamic yoga practices. The day begins with a blend of Hatha and Kundalini Yoga, the afternoons with Vinyasa and Gyrokinesis movement. We will bathe in the sounds of the sacred chants, teachings, and poetry of the mystics. And the days will end with one of our favorite practices, Sufi Dancing! This retreat will also give everyone more free time to be with nature and explore the power spots in the Mitake Mountains.

Retreat Content:
Morning Hatha/Kundalini Yoga
Teachings of the Mystics
Afternoon Vinyasa/Gyrokinesis Movement
Evening Sufi Dancing
朝クラス:ハタ / クンダリーニ・ヨガ
午後クラス:ヴィンヤサ/ ジャイロキネシス・ムーヴメント

This is a fun and spirited yoga program for connecting to our hearts and walking our spiritual path in love, harmony, and beauty. Come and be nourished by the healing energy of the mountains, enjoy community with friends old and new, and explore the mysteries of the heart of the Beloved. This program is open to all students, no previous experience necessary.

Mitake 2014

Inner Secrets and Outer Manifestation – The Alchemy of Tantra

Saturday July 19 – Monday July 21, 2014
at Nobori Shukubo, Mitake, Tokyo

Join us this Summer for our fourth annual yoga retreat in Mitake mountain!

Our human life is precious, each and every moment is new and full of possibility.  But we often perceive reality as solid and fixed, our mind is bound by old conditioning and beliefs.  Thus we limit our potential, deny ourselves what we truly want, settle for commonly shared mediocrity.  This relates to our work, our relationships, our entire lives.  We fall into comfortable habits of avoiding what we fear and attaching ourselves to what pleases us.  On the path of spiritual growth, this keeps us stuck; opportunities to experience our fullest human potential are left unrealized.

Tantra is an esoteric path of transformation.  Through it we see reality as fluid, our minds and behavior flexible.  Unlike other spiritual paths which are about denying negative influences, tantra says to embrace them, but with awareness, which loosens the constricting knots of tension in our bodies and mind.  This is the secret of transformation, opening the pathways of our creative life-force energies to allow for their expression and manifestation.  Tantra means ‘continuity’, so instead of having ‘either/or’ mind one has ‘both/and’ mind. So Tantra really means experiencing all dimensions of life in complete fullness, freeing ourselves from our bondage and rigidity, remaining relaxed, open and flowing, residing naturally in the middle, in our center.  We live in full acceptance instead of critical denial.

In this Summer’s retreat we will be introduced to the teachings and practices of various traditions coming from Tibet, India and America to discover how to balance our spiritual life in a world full of distractions.  This will encompass yoga for the body, working skillfully with others; meditation with Tibetan deities to transform our attachments; and teachings about life and love to see a bigger picture of how to truly fulfill our wants and needs.  By bringing increased awareness to our thoughts and actions, we release fear and confusion and develop unconditional love and wisdom.

Course curriculum includes:
Partner Yoga & Venus Kriyas
Deity Practice, Mantra & Meditation
Intentional Living & The Truth About Love
Dream & Sleep Yoga
Healing Circle
Sufi Dancing


Join us for this rich and unique yoga program.  It is intended for all levels of students, beginning and experienced alike.  Bring yourself, bring a friend.  With full alertness and clear awareness we can truly live a life of fulfillment and wholeness.  There is no duality, only totality.

Summer Yoga Retreat / July 14-16, 2012 – Mitake

Realizing Your Spiritual And Worldly Goals w/ Miles Maeda

Saturday July 14 – Monday July 16, 2012
at Nobori Shukubo, Mitake, Tokyo

Join us this Summer for an immersive weekend retreat at Mitake mountain. In this informative, practical and fun program we will focus on how to improve our health, attract more wealth, and gain useful insight about ourselves through the ancient teachings of yoga. It is a chance to gather all of our spiritual and worldly goals together and activate in ourselves the inspiration and determination to realize our dreams!

We have the ability to magnetize to us all the things we need and want in life. This is a simple truth which is obscured by the karmic conditioning of our body/mind. By using the tools of yoga, we can more clearly see our old unsupportive habits and patterns and recreate healthy new ones that help us to realize our true potential, manifesting exactly what we intend – improving our health, success with our work, enriching our spiritual life.

In this program we will learn three categories of practices, all working together to help us improve the way we function in our bodies and in the world: preparation (having clear intention), generation (building necessary life-force energy) and circulation (sharing the fruits of our labor). We will learn to purify and strengthen our body so we stop leaking vital energy. We will learn to generate and store necessary prana/ki to raise our level of performance and awareness. We will learn the importance of circulating and sharing this energy so it creates a continuous and abundant flow that supports all, including ourselves.

Course curriculum includes:
– Yoga teachings on plugging our leaks & cultivating prana/ki
– Hatha Yoga to energize the body & breath
– Kundalini Yoga to create opportunity & money
– Taoist pranayama to circulate life-force energy
– Tibetan meditation to clear karma
– Healing circle & Sufi dancing

Please join us for this rich and unique yoga program. It is intended for all levels of students, beginning and experienced alike.  Bring yourself, bring a friend. Let us all learn, grow and celebrate together in this transformative journey!

Join us for this workshop which will include basic theories, procedures and attunements to becoming a level I practitioner.

Integration Yoga Workshop

the science of the nadis, bandhas and chakras
@ Sun & Moon Yoga Studio

Yoga for many begins with the practice of asana, synchronizing the movements of the body with the flow of the breath. The definition of Yoga, according to Patanjali, is the cessation of the waves of the mind. So in order to bridge the one with the other, it is vital to integrate the dynamics of our subtle anatomy: the nadis (channels), bandhas (locks) and chakras (energy centers).

Hatha Yoga is the merging of opposites, the union of the male and female energies within us. This unification happens in the subtle anatomy, which is supported by our physical structure and activity. If one practices any of the Hatha Yogas (Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara, Bikram, etc.), the opportunity to deepen one’s practice is to cultivate the subtle energies within. We open and clear the channels, utilize the bandhas to guide and direct energy to flow freely up and through the various chakras, ultimately resulting in the stilling of the waves of the mind.

In this workshop, we will explore exercises to gain awareness of our subtle anatomy. We will do pranayama to strengthen the bandhas as well as learn a powerful mantra to clear and energize the chakras. Finally, we will do a yoga set designed to integrate subtle awareness with a physical asana practice. The practice of yoga opens many doors. And if it’s time to go deeper, the tools to help you do the work are right there inside of us.
