Mission Statement

Arising from the vision of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and Lama Justin von Bujdoss, the Yangti Yoga Retreat Center is envisioned as a place for spiritual practice and awakening rooted around the practice of Yangti Yoga, or dark retreat.

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 which focuses primarily on Yangti Yoga practice based upon the the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition. The Yuthok Nyingthik lineage is the source of Sowa Rigpa (གསོ་བ་རིག་པ་།), the Tibetan language  term for the traditional medical system of Tibet, translated into English as “the Science of Healing”. 

While we specialize in the presentation of Yangti Yoga meditation, or Dark Retreats, in which participants retreat in complete darkness for anywhere from 1 day up to 7 weeks, we are also dedicated to the presentation of the Ati Yoga practice traditions of the Karma Nyingthik and Konchok Chidu.

Yangti Yoga Retreat Center offers retreats, workshops and educational programming suitable for the general public as well as the seasoned practitioner along with high quality, spa-like services for all of our guests so that they can go deeply within themselves to connect with the inner light which exists in all beings.
